Hey, x-type, looks like our national teams are going to play each other in the Handball World Cup semi-final in 2 days

That's just great - I post a joke and Verso gets the credit (or the blame) for it!

Anyway, you're right, I shouldn't have chosen those pictures, I should have chosen this one, which made it to the Bulgarian highways thread, before the posts were moved and became the start of the first ever "Roadside Rest Area" thread. :stalker:



Okay, I'll stop posting nonsense
But there's no point in getting upset, Radi - it's a joke, don't take things so seriously!
Remember I said that you posted some good pictures later on, such as these from here.

Today, I spent two and a half hours walking around the city taking pictures of some highways. I'll be organising them by road and posting them in the Australian roads thread soon (except for one which belongs in "Weird stuff & cretinism" ), but first here are a couple of pictures of myself, taken on the Cahill Walk which runs alongside the Cahill Expressway on a viaduct over Circular Quay. I was trying to get the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background, but couldn't see what I was doing while pointing the camera at myself.

Yeah, it's been pretty hot here lately... it got up to 40°C a few days ago, and it seems to be getting to about 30 or 35 most days.

Szczebrzeszynski
Szczodrochowo
Szczuczyn
Szczęście
Szczygłów
Szczyrzyc

^ Hardly. (though I could, if I tried) It's funny how some of us have 0°C, the others have 40°...

It goes more or less like that:

sz is sh (shovel)
cz is tch (catch)
rz is like j in French (Jerome)
ó is u or oo
ś is like s "sure"
ń is like n in "new" (softened by e)
ł is w (win)

These ones are not that difficult to pronounce. Though I guarentee you that 90% of Polish kids would spell them incorrect.
Try dżdżownica instead. Or Żdżary and Łódź (something you will come across on motorways )

actually, those szcz things are not hard to pronounce for Slavs. polish is hard only because of lots of letters in words and people get affraid of those long words
