    No. Polish as in nationality is Poh-lish, polish as in cleaning agent is pah-lish.

    It is, to the best of my knowledge, the only case in English sheet capitalization changes pronunciation (so long as you avoid beginning of sentence capitalization shenanigans). But yeah, if you polish your Polish sword, then you pronounce 'em different.

    Nope. Polish is "Poulish" while polish is "pohlish".

    Bloody English language.

    While I'm all on board with the former, I'm going to go ahead and assume you have a nationality. If only because I've read way too many Sovereign Citizens asking about how to abdicate their citizenship without obtaining another one, which by every rational account is just the worst idea ever.

    Maybe he considers himself a citizen of Bir Tawil, that bit of land between Egypt and Sudan which is claimed by neither and is thus the only piece of land on the planet (apart from Antarctica) not claimed by any country?

    Tell that to the racer who came in second because he finished one second late. I once had a witch try to entrance me down by the building's entrance. I went fishing and caught a big bass while playing bass guitar. I once had a garbage man refuse to empty my refuse bins. When my friend tried to pay for my dinner, I tried to object, but he told me that money was no object. Seeing all the new content in my news feed makes me feel very content. Now wipe away your tears while you repair the tears in this clothing, and pick up the down pillow from down on the ground while I go get some ground beef. Watch out for the wind while I wind up this clock. And fine tune the settings on that machine while I examine the fine edge of this fine looking knife. Oops, I forgot to pay the fine for my speeding tickets.

    Now I'll tie this ribbon in a bow while I go take a bow at the bow of the ship.

    Arguably not correct. There are about 7 km2 not claimed by either Serbia or Croatia. However someone has tried to set up a new state called Liberland in the area.

    They should name it New Nuevoland. Sounds like it'd be a nice name.
    An explanation of why MitD being any larger than Huge is implausible.
