What is a typical food/dish from your country? 🥘

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Since I like to cook meals, I can say that there are many dishes typical of Poland intended for exquisite meals. Such foods include Polish bigos, royal white borscht, pork chop served with potatoes and fried young cabbage. I believe that Polish cuisine is not inferior to exquisite French cuisine, but unfortunately very tasty Polish meals are little known in Western Europe

Dlaczego w Polsce jest tak mało feministek? Ja jestem feministką, ale szczerze mówiąc boję się o tym mówić, bo ludzie krzywo patrzą zaraz i głupie dowcipy. Ale jestem feministką mniej więcej od okresu gimnazjum odkąd poznałam co to słowo znaczy.

Why are there so few feminists in Poland? I am a feminist, but to be honest I am afraid to talk about it, because people look askance and stupid jokes. But I've been a feminist more or less since junior high since I found out what the word meant.
My guess is that the point is that Poles, contrary to appearances, are an intelligent nation. Today's feminism has nothing to do with what feminists assumed almost 100 years ago

What has been the most interesting thing you’ve experienced this year?

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
I have already written about it in the answer here: https://ask.fm/KubaGR571/answers/168237594853 I wrote the answer in Polish and now you have the same in English. I have inserted a link, so as not to post a photo again. On the basis of such a document on passing the exam, a driving license document is obtained. In Poland, obtaining a driving license is more difficult than writing a high school diploma.
I wish you good luck, good health and good luck in 2022

Patrzysz na ranking ?

Are you looking at the ranking?
I was never interested in ranking. I only answer on Saturdays, now a little more often because we came to Poland for Christmas. We are afraid of returning to the Netherlands, so as not to end up in a forced quarantine. Since we have dual citizenship, we hope to avoid this inconvenience
Nigdy nie interesował mnie ranking. Odpowiadam jedynie w soboty, Teraz trochę częściej, ponieważ przyjechaliśmy do Polski na Święta Bożego Narodzenia. Obawiamy się powrotu do Holandii, aby nie trafić na przymusową kwarantannę. Ponieważ mamy podwójne obywatelstwo mamy nadzieję, że ominie nas ta nieprzyjemność

No, it's not really a thing in Poland, I guess. But in pre-school and in the first grades of the primary school, before Christmas, there was this tradition to have someone (a teacher, a father, a grandfather and so on) to dress up as Santa and visit all classes with bags of sweets for every one of them.

Czy bohaterem zawsze jest ten, kto na to zasłużył?

NieTaka’s Profile PhotoשAlways Positive
Is the hero always the one who deserves it?
A hero does not always deserve the name of a hero. There have been many cases in the history of Poland when the hero was imposed on Poles from abroad. These people may have been heroes, but they did not deserve Poland, but did deserve the enemy of Poland. There have been a few cases where traitors have been turned into heroes
Nie zawsze ktoś okrzyknięty za bohatera zasługuje na to miano. Bywa, że media ze zdrajcy robią bohatera

Gabi oglądasz programy muzyczne, np. The voice of Poland?

Nie, nie mam telewizora i zdecydowanie wolę poświęcić czas na jakieś konkretne filmy, a nie takie zjadacze czasu.
Nigdy nie przepadałam za śpiewem w filmach, a co dopiero oglądać specjalnie do tego zrobione programy.
Nie przepadam za polskimi tworami choć obejrzałam trzy polskie filmy Kler (wyśmienity 10/10), Boże ciało (7/10) i Sala Samobójców: Hejter (film mnie po prostu rozczarował i jedynka zdecydowanie lepsza) i na tym na razie się moje oglądanie kończy.

Have you ever been to another country, other than the one you live in? What was that like?

H2o_o2H’s Profile Photoᴀʀᴄʜɪᴇ
I've visited a number of countries outside my own: germany, the united states, france, poland, hungary, and the czech republic, to name but a few! Each was gorgeous in its own way and I had an amazing time exploring them all. But, I especially enjoyed the time I spent in prague, in the czech republic.
There is a whimsical, almost fairytale-esque quality to the city of prague, especially during the winter, when it's all decorated for christmas and the markets are taking place, which is the time of year that I happened to visit. It was delightful, and I'd gladly go back!

Is anyone planning to travel next year?

I went abroad three times last year (Czechia, Poland and Spain), already been once this year (Iceland) and am going again in 3 weeks to Spain. Will probably go again later this year too, thinking maybe Portugal. I'm not putting my life on hold any longer and I really struggle to see why flying to Spain is any different to taking a train to Cornwall. Honeymoon got cancelled last year, would really like to rebook it but while we might be able to guess how covid will be playing out here, I have no idea what it'll be like in the country we want to go to. Also don't want to go through the pain in the arse of cancelling everything again, that was a nightmare. We've booked a honeymoon (Japan) for April 2022. If it can't happen, it can't happen and we'll look to go perhaps the following year. We've booked and paid for the flights and the hotels are all held on booking.com (no money paid). I've booked early because I don't want to leave it so late that we're out of options especially as we're going at a peak tourist time. And really I don't see it as a problem, the flights will get refunded if it's cancelled and all the hotels have short notice cancellation policies.
Also messed with out honeymoon/holiday/ wedding. We're just seeing how things go with the view of going away for 3 weeks at the end of next year, nothing booked yet though. We also have a week penciled in for November. Just a nip to somewhere closeish like Prague, again nothing booked yet.
The majority of the adult population are vaccinated, with boosters coming in autumn - not the same situation whatsoever. Cases are spiking but deaths aren't, we can't be forced to stay inside forever in case someone catches it and dies. Over a year of people's lives wasted, children's education down the drain (I'm a teacher and my god, the Year 7 students are basically like Year 5 kids, if that), mental health of many suffering. Every time restrictions are lifted, cases will spike - we can't be caught in a cycle of open/close otherwise it'll go on forever - the virus won't go away, ever. Got a cruise along the Spanish/Portuguese coast booked for November 2022, not payable till next August,, so we'll wait and see before fully committing, but hopefully by then, things will be a lot better. The only kind of insurance you'll get for Covid will be for if you test positive or have to self-isolate. You won't get insurance for the possibility of Covid related cancellation - the risk is simply far too high for any (mainstream) insurer to sensibly take on.
I'm super grateful that covid hasn't played havoc with my health or finances, however it certainly messed up my holiday/honeymoon plans! Is anyone thinking of booking 2022 holidays? I'm eager to get something booked but I'm worried about travel insurance, can anyone recommend a decent insurer with covid protection? Or should I just steer clear of booking anything for a while?

What is social media to you? How can we ensure that such tools benefit us (educate, entertain etc)?

AisyahIsHere2’s Profile PhotoAisyahpotated
This is an important question and one that I do like to comment on in forums such as askfm. But I will make an exception for you...this once.
For social networks to be beneficial to everybody, there must be Freedom of Speech. Unfortunately, certain speech is blocked. For example, political speech that is critical of corrupt governments and their Billionaire puppet masters are prohibited and intentionally blocked. So, in effect, social networks have become an extension of the Globalist ruling class and the corrupt MSM which exist to propagate the corrupt narrative of the government and their Globalist Plutocrats.
For social networks to be effective in broadcasting the truth, the internet needs to be redesigned in such a manner that high tech corporations like Microsoft, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, etc are no longer in control of user content.
The effort to redesign the internet so the users own their own information and control their content is now underway in the United States and this effort has the backing and support from countries such as Russia, Poland, Hungry and Japan who are pushing back against the Globalists who are attempting to create a New World Order and a One World Government by controlling our speech, our thoughts and our behavior. This insidious behavior is motivated by the ruling classes insatiable greed and quest for unlimited power.
It must be stopped and, with God's help, it will be.

You could say. We were in tents then in Poland, there was a beautiful lake nearby and a very old cemetery nearby. A few days in a row, every night was quiet, while on the last night, just before our departure, things were happening that could hardly be explained with anything else than paranormal things
Czy kiedykolwiek miałaś niewytłumaczalne doświadczenie paranormalne z duchami?
Można tak powiedzieć. Byliśmy wtedy w Polsce pod namiotami, w pobliżu było piękne jezioro, a nieopodal bardzo stary cmentarz. Kilka dni z rzędu w każdą noc było spokojnie natomiast w ostatnią noc tuż przed naszym wyjazdem działy się rzeczy, które trudno czymś innym wyjaśnić niż rzeczami paranormalnymi

A period of 70 years during the 17th century, One of the goals was to create, just like the Roman Empire, a Swedish inland sea in this case the Baltic Sea. Finland, part of the Baltics and Germany belonged to Sweden. A Swedish king was also appointed in Poland. He who moved the capital from Krakow.

Currently I live in the United States, but the USA is rapidly adopting Marxist ideology which will ultimately lead to communism and a tyrannical government and the elimination of the middle class.

Mówi się często, że osobom starszym powinno się okazywać szacunek, lecz czy na pewno zawsze?

NieTaka’s Profile PhotoשAlways Positive
It is often said that the elderly should be respected, but is it really always?
In the past, when I lived in Poland, older people behaved slightly differently. They were people from whom life wisdom could be learned. Now some older people have become bitter. They can offend someone for no reason, just because someone is 50 years younger than them. I believe that respect is not due to everyone, because each person is a human being, while respect is due to people who are worthy of respect
Różnie to bywa. Dawniej, gdy mieszkałam w Polsce nieco inaczej zachowywały się osoby starsze. Byli to ludzie, od których można było się nauczyć mądrości życiowej. Obecnie niektórzy starsi ludzie stali się zgorzkniali. Potrafią kogoś obrazić bez powodu, tylko dlatego że ktoś jest od nich o 50 lat młodszy. Uważam, że szacunek nie należy się każdemu, dlatego bo każdy z ludzi jest człowiekiem natomiast szacunek należy się osobom godnym szacunku

Piszesz ze mieszkasz z teściami. Jak długo jesteś ze swoim facetem? Stoję przed podobną decyzją ale boję sie że jesteśmy za krótko razem

Tzn to są przyszli teściowie, ponieważ nie jesteśmy jeszcze po ślubie. Aktualnie jestem ze swoim chłopakiem ponad 6 lat lecz mieszkamy w ten sposób Poland dwa lata (czyli byliśmy w związku około 4 lat jak postanowiliśmy tak zamieszkać). Mamy osobny pokój na piętrze, który zrobiliśmy od podstaw, ponieważ był tu jedynie strych, dzięki czemu mamy dla siebie przestrzeń.
My przed podjęciem tej decyzji wynajmowaliśmy mieszkanie (prędzej pracowaliśmy razem i mieszkaliśmy dwa lata za granicą), lecz mój chłopak prowadzi w swoim rodzinnym domu firmę i to właśnie przyszli teściowie zaproponowali nam byśmy zamieszkali z nimi i pomogli nam zagospodarować strych. To ogólnie bardzo mili ludzie, nie miałam z nimi nigdy większego problemu, lecz czasami za bardzo chcą by zrobić coś tak, jak im się wydaje, że jest lepiej, no cóż to nie jest nic wielkiego. Tak poza tym cieszę się, że się dogadujemy.
Nie wiem ile jesteś ze swoim facetem, lecz najważniejsze jest to, by nie robić nic na siłę i wbrew temu co czujemy.

Jak myślisz, czy gdyby doszło do wojny, to wielu Polaków walczyło by o ojczyznę? Czy jednak patriotyzm nie jest już na tyle silny aby walczyć i umierać za swój kraj?

NieTaka’s Profile PhotoשAlways Positive
If there was a war, what do you think, would many Poles fight for their homeland? But isn't patriotism strong enough to fight and die for your country?
If there had been a war, many Poles would have gone abroad. The fight would be fought only by Poles who really care about Poland. I suspect that in the event of war, 90% of Polish politicians would flee Poland, because politicians do not really care about fighting and dying for their own country
Gdyby była wojna to wiele Polaków wyjechałoby za granicę. Walkę prowadzili by jedynie Polacy, którym naprawdę zależy na Polsce. Podejrzewam, że w wypadku wojny 90% polskich polityków uciekło by z Polski, bo tak naprawdę politykom nie zależy na tym, aby walczyć ginąć za własny kraj

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Ooo, I know much about Swedish history! There are so many stories I can tell, kinda hard to choose but I'll tell you one of my favorites! 📚
October 1657 - February 1658 🇸🇪⚔🇩🇰
Sweden was one of the great powers of Europe and had many enemies. This often led to Sweden having to fight several countries at once. This was the case in June of 1657. Sweden was already fighting two wars, one against Poland and one against Russia.
With Sweden having their forces spread out, Denmark decided to invade Sweden. Swedish King Charles X Gustav feared that the consequences would be dire if Denmark wasn't dealt with swiftly. He therefore chose to move the vast majority of his forces up north. The swift movement of the Swedish troops through southern Denmark surprised the Danes.
The Swedish war veterans had by October occupied all of Jylland, the portion of Denmark that's connected to the rest of Europe and doesn't consist of islands. King Charles now had his sights set on the Danish capital of Copenhagen but in his way was the Danish straights and the Danish navy. The Swedish king however had a plan.
The 1600's was the coldest century during the "Small ice age" and the normally harsh Nordic winters were even more unforgiving. With winter having arrived king Charles decided it was time to enact his very risky plan. He gathered his whole army, horses and cannons included and started marching over the frozen ocean. In total he and his army marched almost 20 km over two straights with very few who fell through the ice.
On the other side the Danes who were left to defend Copenhagen were absolutely terrified watching the Swedish forces appear out of the mist like wraiths over the frozen water. With the Swedes now only a short march away from Copenhagen the Danish king chose to sign for peace. One of the many areas Sweden gained was Skåne, the area where I live, which up till then had always been Danish. So if it wasn't for this campaign I probably would've been a Dane lol

For a long time Poland was in the sphere of influence of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and was treated by the Russians not as an independent state but as one of its subordinate republics. The Russians invented the saying: A hen is not a bird and Poland is not abroad. This saying was about the fact that forged people cannot fly, and Poland is not an independent state, because it will always be subject to Russia. After the collapse of the USSR, Poland at least in theory became a free country. Unfortunately, people from the Russian secret services were still in power and were destroying the Polish state. The same is true today, only secret service people change

Polska przez długi czas była w strefie wpływów byłego Związku Socjalistycznych Republik Radzieckich i była traktowana przez Rosjan nie jako samodzielne państwo tylko jako jedna z podległych mu republik. Rosjanie wymyślili powiedzenie: Курица не птица Польша не заграница - co po polsku znaczyło "Kura nie ptak a Polska nie zagranica"
W tym powiedzeniu chodziło o to, że kuty nie potrafią latać, a Polska dla Rosjan nie jest samodzielnym państwem

When going on vacation, I would rather go to holiday resorts in Poland or somewhere on a campsite in Poland.

It was much cheaper than in holiday resorts, but we felt very comfortable and we could see more than people who bought a holiday in a holiday resort

There are many things in Poland that are funny and sad at the same time. The funny thing is that we are ruled by politicians who cannot govern, and the funny thing is that every time after the election they get into the government.
