Correction to Fact #10

Most of the facts are facts except for the number 10 when it comes to photo of our nation’s pride. Mariusz Pudzianowski – the strongest man in the world looks like in the photo above. Just by the way – he held the Strongest Man in the World title for 5 years. Thanks to his appearance in the contest he well presents himself advertising products that are strong & endure.

Video transcript for those who prefer reading to watching
00:00
hello my friends my name is Arthur Ray
00:02
and I’m an Estonian youtuber today we
00:04
are going to talk about Poland
00:06
more specifically ten weird facts about
00:10
Poland now this is a series I’ve done
00:12
weird facts about Finland Latvia
00:14
Lithuania and now it’s Poland’s turn
00:17
without further introduction let’s get
00:20
right into it first fact Poland is one
00:22
of the most Roman Catholic countries in
00:24
the world but that’s not impressive or
00:27
impressive is that they have an entire
00:29
TV channel dedicated to the Pope wow
00:33
that’s crazy I wish I had my own TV
00:35
channel I shall become the next pope
00:38
then I will have my own TV channel write
00:41
in the comments if you would like me as
00:42
your Pope Poland second fact in Poland
00:45
there are things like name days we also
00:47
have them in Estonia but in Poland name
00:50
days are considered as important or more
00:53
important than birthdays in Estonia we
00:55
have name days but we don’t really
00:57
usually consider them very important if
00:59
it’s your name they just a it’s my name
01:02
day and everyone claps a little and then
01:03
it’s poof gone but in Poland is a little
01:05
bit different if it’s your name day it’s
01:07
kind of a big deal so if you want to go
01:10
to Poland first check out which day is
01:13
your name day and then go to Poland on
01:15
that day so you will get presents and
01:17
stuff first fact Polish people usually
01:20
come off as cold reserved miserable and
01:25
angry what these are all negative words
01:28
now before you go into that I know bear
01:30
in mind that I’m not saying they are
01:32
like that I’m saying they usually come
01:34
off the Western people like that
01:36
I am from Estonia which is more north
01:37
than eastern Poland and I am the Krampus
01:40
person in the world they don’t want to
01:42
talk to anyone and I don’t smile to
01:44
anyone when they come up to me in the
01:46
street so Eastern European people and
01:48
Poland people might tend to be like that
01:51
that doesn’t mean that Polish people are
01:53
not happy or capable of positive
01:55
emotions no they really do have all that
01:59
joy and everything in them but they’re
02:01
more reserved than your typical American
02:03
Polish people only show their emotions
02:06
to their closest people to their most
02:08
intimate situations and
02:10
also only in honest situations if they
02:13
really don’t care how are you they’re
02:15
not gonna ask how are you they’re just
02:17
gonna krump and do and go away fact
02:20
number four the largest section in a
02:23
grocery store tends to be the candy
02:25
section this is actually surprising
02:29
because vodka is invented by poles or by
02:32
Russians we still don’t know it’s one of
02:34
those two but in Russia the biggest
02:36
section is a vodka section but in Poland
02:38
the candy section I kind of do want
02:41
candy now maybe send me some candy and I
02:44
would like to taste it and I can make a
02:46
separate video of Polish candy fact
02:48
number five 94% of Polish population is
02:51
Polish that makes the country one of the
02:54
most homogeneous countries in the world
02:56
meaning that it’s one of the few
02:58
countries that the native population
03:00
makes out the almost hundred percent of
03:03
the total population you go Poland but
03:06
the dark side of that fact is that it is
03:08
nowadays like that because of Nazis back
03:11
in the 30s and 40s Nazi state ethnic
03:14
cleansing not killing only poles but
03:17
also gypsies black people and Jews who
03:20
are known to be not ethnically Polish
03:23
and now you have all these Polish people
03:25
in Poland and not very many other people
03:27
because Nazis killed them all off yay
03:30
fact number six polish language is one
03:33
of the most difficult languages in the
03:34
world
03:35
some would say the most difficult
03:37
language in the world it sounds like a
03:39
mix of Russian and some western language
03:42
I don’t know which one also they have
03:44
some few words that are similar to
03:46
Russian with Russian word roots but they
03:49
used Western alphabet which makes it
03:51
even more confusing facts number seven
03:54
as I mentioned vodka comes from Poland
03:57
or Russia we don’t know let’s say it’s
03:59
Poland all right what comes from Poland
04:02
although they do not drink that much
04:04
alcohol no no if you go crazy on me
04:06
poles and you will drink a lot then look
04:09
at the statistics first in Europe or
04:11
Finland Russia Estonia and Latvia
04:15
Lithuania those very very East East East
04:18
European countries and Poland is
04:20
somewhere ten
04:21
to 15th place so polls don’t really
04:24
drink that much
04:25
[Music]
04:28
Oh
04:33
[Applause]
04:35
fact number 8 Poland has a very dark and
04:39
bloody history much like Estonia where I
04:41
come from Poland has been occupied
04:43
numerous times Poland has fought for
04:46
freedom in different forms 43 times from
04:50
1600s to 1945 43 times most of the
04:54
countries have one or two fights for
04:56
independence remember this Poland us
04:58
done this 43 times it’s a lot of times
05:02
to remember it 43 different days for
05:04
independence I know it doesn’t work
05:06
exactly like that but still the number
05:08
is huge fuck number 9 the most popular
05:11
dog name in Poland this Perec or poo
05:13
deck I’ve novice pronounce this right to
