Только в Лодзи в Польши улица Харцмастера Александра Каминского, польского национального активиста и учителя цензурированого правительством ПНР, может пересекать улицу Революции 1905 года. Давай поздравляем этот город!
Only in Łódź, Poland street of Scoutmaster Aleksander Kamiński, Polish national activist and teacher censored by government of PPR, can cross street of Revolution of 1905. Congratulations to this city!

Inderdaad! De Belgen zijn echt gek*. Maar er is geen plek als** België, vooral Brussel. Waar anders kun je de trein naar 's Gravenbrakel pakken*** en dan uitstappen in Braine-le-Comte.

*Perhaps "gestoord" is more forceful here.
**This sounds a bit off, perhaps an anglicism. "zoals" would perhaps be better, but still... Perhaps rephrase with a different idiom, e.g. "Er gaat niets boven België" or the like.
***"de [means of transport] pakken naar ..." is a set (colloquial) expression. If you want to contrast "instappen" with "uitstappen", try "Waar anders kun je instappen in de trein naar X, en dan uitstappen in Y", but I don't like the "instappen in" with its two "in"s. To avoid that, say "... kun je in de trein naar X stappen en dan uitstappen in Y", but the contrast is a bit lost then.

Ich weiss richtig nicht was "'s Gravenbrakel" und "Braine-le-Comte" sind und warum das komisch ist...
I really don't know what "'sG" and "BlC" are and why it's funny...

Ich nehm an, dass "'s Gravenbrakel" so superflämisch vorkommt ([sχr] ist so 'ne urniederlandische Reihenfolge) und "Braine-le-Comte" so superfranzösich. Das letztere ist auch schon lustig an sich, weil es "braine" enthält, was jemanden ans englische Wort "brain" erinnert.
I guess "'s Gravenbrakel" just looks super Flemish ([sχr] is such an uber-Dutch sequence) and "Braine-le-Comte" so super French. The latter is also funny in itself since it has "braine", which reminds you of the English word "brain".

Waarom rooken zoveel mensen in Europe, vooral jongen? De tabaksondernemingen moeten van Europeanen houden.

Why do some many people smoke in Europe, especially young people? The tobacco companies must love Europeans.

たくさんたばこを吸うのはベルギー人や東欧人だ。スウェーデン人はあまり。
Takusan tabako wo sū no wa Berugii-jin ya Tōō-jind da. Suweeden-jin wa amari.
It's the Belgians and East Europeans who smoke a lot, while the Swedes do not.

Really the difference isn't much:

へえ、ベルギーに行ったときもっと喫煙者がいるような気がした。デンマーク人もたくさんたばこを吸うというようなステレオタイプがあるが、その地図によるとノルウェー人はほとんど同じだ。
Hee, Berugii ni itta toki motto kitsuensha ga iru yōna ki ga shita. Demmaaku-jin mo takusan tabako wo sū to iu yōna sutereotaipu ga aru ga, sono chizu ni yoruto Noruwee-jin wa hotondo onaji da.
Huh, when I went to Belgium it seemed like a lot more. And Danes are supposed to smoke a lot according to the stereotype, but according to that map the Norwegians are almost the same.

Ich weiss nicht, wo der Karte herkommt, aber hier sind die Prozentsätze nach das CBS (Niederländische Statistikbüro) aus 2012 (raucher 15+):

Schweden hat 13.1%, Belgien 20.5%.

I'm not sure where that map comes from, but here are the percentages according to the CBD (Dutch Statistics Bureau) from 2012 (smokers ages 15+).

Ну, как vampireshark сказал, это cool. Когда мой друг со (начальной!) школы начал курить, когда ему было 12, может быть 13 лет, много девушек стало пытаться привлечь его, даже моя самая лучшая подруга, самая умная девушка в моей школе. Я не знаю как, но у него скоро была первая настоящая девушка, только потому что он стал курить. Он тоже приобрёл уважение некоторых мальчиков, особенно с паралельных классов. Этого не объяснишь.
Well, as vampireshark said, it is cool. As my (primary!) school friend started smoking at the age of 12, maybe 13, many girls starting trying to attract him, even my best friend, the most clever girl in my school. Dunno how, but he soon had his first serious girlfriend, just because he began to smoke. Also, he gained respect of some boys, especially from parallel classes. It is unexplainable.

No, era soltanto stanco. Oggi il mal di testa è sparito.
No, estaba solo cansado. Hoy el dolor de cabeza ha desaperecido.
Nee, ik was slechts moe. Vandaag is de hoofdpijn weg.

Slightly formal. In colloquial speech, try "alleen" or "alleen maar".

Es freuht mich das zu hören. Ich habe leider heute Kopfschmerzen.

എനിക്ക് കുഴപ്പമൊന്നുമില്ല, ഇച്ചിരെ വിശക്കുന്നെന്നേയുള്ളൂ. ഇന്ന് വൈകിട്ട് അപ്പയും അമ്മയും ഞാനും ഒരു ചൈനീസ് റസ്റ്റോറന്റിൽ പോകാനാണ് പദ്ധതി. എന്റെകൂടെ ജോലി ചെയ്യുന്ന ഒരു ചൈനാക്കാരി നല്ല സ്ഥലമാണെന്ന് പറഞ്ഞിട്ട് അവരുടെ കാർഡ് എനിക്ക് തന്നതുകൊണ്ടാണ് ഞങ്ങൾ പോകുന്നത്.

I'm doing all right, just a little hungry. My parents and I are planning to go to a Chinese restaurant tonight. We're going because this Chinese lady who works with me said it was a good place and gave me their card.

അപ്പ പറയുന്നത് അവരുടെ ഒരു പടത്തിനകത്ത് മുളക് ഒരു പാത്രത്തിലുണ്ടെന്ന്. അത് മതിയായിരിക്കുമെന്നും പറഞ്ഞു. :P എന്നാലും എങ്ങിനെയുണ്ടെന്ന് നോക്കട്ടെ!
