when I think about Poland, I think Polish sausage...Thats the only thing that comes to mind...other than that, what is Poland known for anyways? I hear about it all the time, but there doesnt seem to be anything special about it...

I think of absolutely beautiful women, the prettiest ones I have ever met came from there(at least in Europe). Poland is also a neighbor of my home country and I think it is a good thing they are part of the EU now.

<B>Homeland</B>... although Canada is my new home (living here for more than two-thirds of my life). I do hope that with the membership to the European Union... Poland will be able to grow in the same manner as its Western counterparts.<p>Na Razie...<br><IMG SRC="http://server2.uploadit.org/files/tribus-PL.jpg" BORDER="0">

I get it for free for some reason so if I don't drink it, my whole place would be filled with water...<p>I think it's all the same...i guess you could make the argument that poland and other similar ones have less bacteria in them...maybe<p>drinking out of the toilets...ewwww...that's just nasty...then again, if someone's desperate, anything can happen, as we learned <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Ya, I think Poland Springs is a whole East Coast thing because in Cali, where I'm originally from, they dont sell it there <p>Poland springs probably messed up on soemone's address and gives you their water while still charging them 9$ per 9gallon jug of water<p>And Naga - it's probably on par with filtered tap water
