    Default Questions to you foreign people

    As in to people not from your country.

    Ukers:
    How's the Cellphone service? I mean you're just an island/s. I would figure it wouldn't be hard to get a good network. Merely due to the size and lack of needing to cover vast spaces. Am I being optimistic? I know the US has crud service in the more rural middle states. So that's why I ask.

    Non-N. and S. American people:
    Do you guys not have tacos? Like... Burritos and Tacos? Is it a thing? What do you do with yourselves?


    If you have a question, ask! If you have an answer, well share!

    I just figured you didn't have much mexican food cause you're so far from it.

    Non Americas again (so not canada sorry little brother hat people):
    Is our music really that big over there? I never hear much of native whomever singers. I have to actively search for kpop to hear about any of it. But do we dominate YOUR music too?

    Then I guess it's safe to assmue you guys don't have Chinese food cause you're so far from it

    And yep, US music is everywhere. Same with movie blockbusters. You have no idea how big a role you guys have in shaping world culture.

    It is Spanish, yes

    But on my way to work alone there's like three burrito places! And they sell tortillas in every supermarket! So maybe Poland is just better than Scotland in that regard, I don't know!

    I mean, according to google researching, 98% of Mexicans emigrate to the US. So I just figured, they didn't go over there so you didn't get their food wonders?

    I would assume other countries have a vast choice for ethnic food, with certain cultures ravaged by war and inept governments being the exception of course. I would be more curious about quality, cause I can say for a fact that the quality of ethnic cuisine varies from state to state in the U.S. Which, while not a foreign country, what the hell breadbasket states! Where's the spicy food?

    Mexican food isn't the biggest thing in the UK, but it's common enough - and becoming more common as we go on. And our mobile coverage is fine for the most part?

    Here, it depends on the place. There's themed bistros (Arabic stuff is particularly popular) where you get cheap food but it's not always the best quality, while restaurants usually have much better ingredients.

    The availability also really depends on where you live. If it's a small town or village, you're probably stuck with traditional Polish food, but in cities you can really choose from a variety of foods. So yes, in Poznań we have a ton of places that serve tacos and burritos.

    I have only had Indian food once, and it was with Shorty and Del and Miriel in San Francisco. I'm smack dab in the middle of the states though, you don't meet many Indians here. Just the Native American, indians.

    WHAT EVEN IS POLISH FOOD?!
