What does this awesome 105-year-old Armenian-language Austro-Hungarian postcard say?

I just bought a postcard written in what looks like Armenian sent from what is now Lviv to what is now Chernivtsi (in what is now Ukraine), sometime between 1905 and (I'm guessing from the stamp) the end of the First World War/Austrian rule of Galicia. What does it say? [more inside]

A few simple words into polish, please.

So I shipped a couple of cars to Poland and they didn't make it in one piece. Now it's time to work with the insurance company. I need a few words translated into Polish for a Vehicle Rating Chart: "Vehicle Description", "Annual Miles", "Number of Years Principal Driver Licensed", "Vehicle Usage" (What the vehicle is used for), "Zip Code", "Discounts Applied", "Number of Years Secondary Driver Licensed". Can anyone fluent in Polish translate these for me? Dziekuje!

Things people in 1854 Warsaw did for a living

What does the Polish word "Haftarz" mean? I see it listed as the occupation of one of my ancestors in the 1854 Warsaw Police census, but I can't find a translation.

Is this a Polish word?

I'm sure I'm mangling the pronunciation, and I'm sure I misheard a few syllables, but last night while waiting for a bus in Brooklyn, a man came up to me and more than once said something that sounded like "Sheh-deh-mah-shen-see." Does it mean anything?
Some clues: He was polish, also spoke -- in english -- about having just gotten out of a hospital, about how he was crazy, about how his wife was in poland, not america, about how he hadn't eaten, about how he was crazy, about "oh my god" (x3). I gave him some food and a cigarette: he walked a few paces away, looked up at the windows of a second-floor gym, laughed, and did a little dance that mimicked the man on the treadmill. Oh, and he kept apologizing: "I'm so sorry. I so crazy. Oh my God." (x3). Any ideas? I hope to see him again, and I hope to be able to reply appropriately.
