NO Polar Bears in Poland? R u sure?

So it's really hilarious. You would expect polar bears in Poland right? Scott and I have been very intrigues about Poland since out Polish colleague joined us at work. I always think of Polar bears inhibiting Poland as very native, but Google search tells me that THERE ARE NO POLAR BEARS IN POLAND. Instead, there are only brown bears! 0_O

This comes as great shock, really. For some reason it just seems so weird (is this very bimbotic?). It's like saying that there is no ice in Iceland and no greenery in Greenland (ok this post is starting to sound damn dum!)

So last week, the 3 of us had the office to ourselves and we decided it'd be nice if we practiced some cross culture. I am proud to say I can count in Polish now! Scott and I learnt this real hard, but yay! -- We did it. You can test me!!


Polish is real hard.. but for those who want to learn, I can try to teach you to count... but really, be prepared to tie your tongue into knots.

Goodbye in Polish is chestch :)

I'm suprised you were learned that 'one' (1) is 'raz' in Polish. Not true! It is 'jeden', not 'raz'. 'Raz' is the same as 'first' in English... Please Steve to correct this ;)

Wave said...

well you're wrong.
"Raz" means "once" but also it means "one" when youre counting and its like "once", "two", "three" etc. (its not an amount).
"First" is simply "pierwszy" (m) or "pierwsza" (f).
And "jeden" equals "one" when youre giving an amount of smth.

Wow, that was weird... Had all of you thought that there are polar bears in Poland? :D We are more like Italy, than Iceland, trust me ;) Average temp. is about 25 degrees in the summer and (it really depends here...) something like 0 to -10 in the winter. I assure you there is no chance to find a wild polar bear in Poland ;) It's funny to hear stuff like this, when you are living in country which it's about ;)

I'm Polish but I live in UK - and this question is well, a hoax? :)
Although - everyone thinks that Poland is covered in snow for most of the year, and it's dead cold (which is not :)), freezing and unpleasant.
I don't know why :) - I find UK to be more cold and hard to live in (British weather sucks - they don't have real summer here :/)
However I admire your attempt to learn Polish - a tongue-twister isn't it? Kinda like Japanese ;p
Good luck :)

google lies. people posting here as Poles lie.

Poland is under tyranny of White Bears Party. Poles are organised in resistance movement, but at this moment white bears cannot be defeated.

Don't believe in white bears' propaganda!

Of course we have polar bears in poland. There are pole dancers too. And who could forget about polaroids, polio, politics, police, pollies, poltergeists, polygamy. Every man in Poland plays polish roulete ones a week and do the polish bike riding every night. cheers

Of course we HAVE polar bears in Poland. In zoos. But in forrests, we have about 6 (six) to 15 (fifteen) alive brown bears for the whole country.

Hi Everyone!
I'm from poland. I didn't expect that my language is so hard to learn. If you try to learn this language please try to learn not "official" polish language. You should learn our slang (nowomowa/slang/łacina podwórkowa :P) to comunicate with polish people. You should know how to say: "Whats up" (Siemano, Elo, Co tam), "Fuck" >>> have a look how many we have means of this word (Kurwa, Pierdolić, Pojebane, Wyjebane, Przejebane, Odjebane, Chuj, Szlag by to, Jebać...)etc.etc.etc or something like that. This should be more fun. I write this comment below in my language. Sorry for my english.

Cześć wszystkim!
Jestem z polski. Nie spodziewałem się, że mój język jest taki trudny do nauki. Jeśli staracie się uczyć polskiego języka proszę postarajcie się nauczyć "nieoficjalnego" języka. Powinniście poznać nasz slang by komunikować się z polakami. Powinniście wiedzieć jak powiedzieć "Siemano", "Kurwa" , lub coś w tym stylu. to powinno być bardziej zabawne. Przepraszam za mój angielski.


Bye/Nara

Nowadays its rather hard to find any kind of wild animals in Poland.
There might be a hare, deer or a hedgehog crossing a road, but dont expect anything else.
The truth is, you should be ashamed of how little you people know..
In our country we learn all freaking details about every country, culture, religion, we have to know at least one foreign language perfectly (generaly we are taught about two or three languages), we have to be good at computers, yet we cannot get a good paying job after graduating from the best universities.
How about Americans? Most of them cant even name the continents! And they think they rule the world, yeah, sure.
Besides that, they are shocked and unhappy when they find out, that english isnt the only language in the whole world.
Its the same with you, Asians. You say, you are busy, smart, hardworking people, but most of you cant even say a proper sentence in english, women are no good at housework (i know you earn much more then us but its not the reason to eat at bars few times a week!). There are lots of things i recall but its not the time for this.
You should learn more. Appreciate some certain things more.
Thats all I wanted to say.
Cheers.

On the board.. Is it really japanese? Symbols do look familiar, but I believe romaji spelling was a bit different..
Like ichi, nii, san, shii, go, roku, shichi, hachi, kyuu, juu, or something like that..
Please correct me if I'm wrong..

If someone from Poland is a "Pole" you should call person from Holand a "Hole" ;]

Only such stupid and funny creatures as americans could think that polar bears live in Poland.
Maybe I'll give you a lesson about Poland. I've been to US and seen by myself that kids in Poland in basic school have often more knowledge than guys in highscools in US. It's really funny if you hear that in US they leanr about fractions and negative numbers in middle school :) LOL. In Europe - Poland is in Europe for your information :) people are simply smarter and don't claim that there are tigers running along Brodway in NY :)

Cheers cocksuckers! :)

Hi! I'm Polish but I live in Reykjavik in Iceland. All I want to say is Iceland is more green than Greenland. :) Winters are also much colder in Poland than in Iceland. Ok, maybe it's cold on the north of island but not in Reykjavik. And yes - there is lots of ice in Iceland, but i live there (now I'm in Poland for my summer wacations) for one year already and I didn't see any glacier so far. The snow is covering grass for one or two months in a year. Oh, there's something more! This summer one polar bear came to Iceland and policeman shot him. :/

Polish hard? Well... It's extremely hard in terms of declension etc. - I'm pretty sure it's *impossible to lear it on course or at school* (you have to spend years speaking this language to learn it, because the rules of declension and other sh*t are very complicated and there are tons of exceptions). But in terms of pronunciation it's not that hard, people who know English can learn most of the sounds pretty easy, some of them are hard, but they aren't essential

Anonymous said...

I know from where this confusion about Polar bears in Poland comes from...
People think that beacause of similarity of the names ie:
Poland - Pole - Polar... :D

Besides, one look at a map and some logic could tell you more about it...

take a look there's Polad in the center of europe, there's Germany right next to it... does anybody ever heard about polar bears in Germany ?! or maybe in Slovakia or Lithuania ?... so why the hell Poland O_o' ?

Although I agree, it is still extremely difficult and most English speaking people in Australia at least do not come close to pronouncing a word correctly, at all, even after repeated attempts at trying and helping them. Good thing is people here are pretty laid back and can laugh at it themselves :)

Witam z Australii!
