"Fresh tests on the suspected Polish ingredient have shown up to 20% horse DNA content relative to beef, Ireland's agriculture ministry said at the weekend. This confirms earlier tests that pointed to Poland as the source of the horse DNA in beef burgers."

What's going on in your Russia?

Russians play “DARE THE TRAIN” and lie on train tracks with trains going above them.

Russian fireman can’t put out fire since Russian security told them they have orders “not to let anyone in” before the fire

Russians eat other Russians for lunch and then sell remaining body parts as Shish Kebobs to Russian stores

Who says I'm getting mad??? What word or phrase did I use to indicate to you I'm getting mad?? Calm down.

All I did was give you a point of reference how unorthodox things happen in other countries as well.

You hypocrite you're the one who went off topic and brought up the rat poison cookies so WHY can't I bring up stuff about Russians almost killing themselves by playing "DARE THE TRAIN".... or how they literally EAT OTHER RUSSIANS FOR LUNCH as Shish kebobs......and let their buildings burn down because the bouncers were too dumb to let the firemen in because before the fire they were told "not to let anyone in".

I can also bring up many other numbscull things Russians do.

Russians making salads with worms in them for foreign officials.

A Russian killing her friend because she was hungry

etc

Admit it....you want to rub in any kind of bad news about Poland...OH BUT then you cry like a big baby when people bring up all the similar if not worse things going on in your Russia. You hypocrite!!

He has nothing to say so he makes ethnic attacks and personal attacks.

The subject is horse DNA in Polak beef and Polak food in general!

Gosh, I only asked a question. Why is he giving me such a hard time?:(

Itīs very simple. Ape has nothing to say or to defend his dumb Polaks.
Recently, national geographic aired a movie on Smolensk disaster, viewed by millions, but clearly put the blame on Polak chimps in the cockpit. Meanwhile, dumb Polaks are bringing different conspiracy.
Recently, Slovaks stopped any food being brought here by Polaks. However, dumb Polaks came out saying itīs not fair to do so.
I know, most of folks posting here do not know or care much these things but believe me Polaks are nothing but small time peddlers & crooks round these parts.

It isn't that no one cares here, it's that we don't import these cookies or their beef so it doesn't get in the press. Believe me, if there were rat poison or horsemeat in our food, it would be all over the media!

How can it be unfair when it's dangerous?! It's unfair to expect people to buy and eat those cookies and put their lives in danger. How is that unfair?! That is just ridiculous.

I'm going to look for that movie! Maybe they have it online or on youtube. If I find it, I will post a link.

Dumb Polaks claimed itīs only a small % out of their total. Currently, plenty of snow on the roads in Slovakia is seen. Out of all accidents 70 % are Polaks. Do you know why ? These cabbage heads do not use chains on their old trucks. Just yesterday, dumb Polak ran into a ditch with his truck loaded with live chickens & fire was started, burned the whole truck.
As I said, Polaks are the most stupid people round this region.

Okay....
It's one of their Mayday episodes where they investigate plane crashes.

"Death of the President" The 2010 Polish Air Force Tu-154 crash

According to this, it has only aired in Poland so far
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mayday_e...

You will need to scroll down to "Season 12" - there are 2 lists with "season 12", one showing that it was aired in Poland on Jan 27 and the other list says it hasn't been shown in the US or in the UK, etc

There WAS a youtube video posted but it's been removed :(

This site says it will air (again?) on Jan 30
http://ngc.gazeta.pl/pl/smierc-prezydenta

In English for our non-Polish speaking Polaks!

Trailer for the episode:

Only a small percentage of those cookies have rat poison in them??

Mmmm... they can feed them to their kids first, then we'll see if it's something to worry about.

LOL @ cabbage heads.
