I support cutting of those old trees. They were so uneven, old and ugly, now we have all of those buildings in its full splendor

This is for you, Iluminat (baaad news ): finally, they completely ruined it painting it f*cking blue!!

Clearly, this owner has a problem with good taste (or he/she is colorblind).

My tongue refuses to pronounce it the Polish way... so, if I pronounce it Stettin (as in German), how bad will that be? When I was butchering Wroclaw most people just told me to say Breslau if it's easier for me to pronounce.

People in Stettin generally are okay with their city being called Stettin, from my experience.

"Szczecin" is almost impossible to impose on foreigners, impossible to market and position in the global sphere. I think "Stettin" should be the anglophile/global version of the city name anyway. Just like "Warsaw" is for "Warszawa" etc. We should have overcome the stupid sentimentality of "Germans taking back formerly German now Polish cities" by now anyway, just because of town names or other shite. Germans are friendly visitors nowadays and only trust and friendship build the peace of the future.
