1) I have added to my ever growing repertoire of pointed insults.

2) I have learned never to criticize a poster's points, but instead, to criticize their personalities.

3) I earned an A+ in Tribalism 301.

4) I have learned that you can never successfully pass your points across to Sagamite, if he doesn't agree with you.

5) I have learned not to take the word "person" seriously anymore for its overuse has rendered it insipid and vapid.

6) I have learned how to be the first commenter, by obsessively stalking the "New Topics" section.

7) I have learned, from the religious section, that whenever anything positive happens, we should give glory to Baba Jehovah, but otherwise, place all the blame on Uncle Lucifer.

8) I have learned that Mukina2 is a paid supermod.

9) I have learned that Seun has become less of a douchebag, and more of an amiable fascist.

10) Ogugua88 is still the baddest b*itch on Nairaland.


Lest I forget, 64th to comment, so I give all the undivided glory to Almighty Obatala.

vanstanzy: I've gained an insight into the real problem of Nigeria... ITS PEOPLE! But not to worry, "A PROBLEM SHARED IS A PROBLEM SOLVED".

Ha. What else did you think is the problem of any country before, its rainfall or density of mosquitos.

Than Nigerian is far more divided than what I see in the demographic maps
That going to reading and writing are not the best indices of education
That hatred, bigotry, tribalism and fanaticism is a hobby for most youths in Nigeria

WHAT I HAVE LEARNT ON NAIRALAND SO FAR:
1. I have succesfully learnt how to insult: I can recalled when my Boss sent me on an errand I questioned him how the errand will affect the price of garri in the market. This question handed me 5 days surcharge.
2. I have learnt about garri dynamics.
3. I have learnt how to type much faster in order to be the first to comment.
4. I have learnt how to banqueried my co- workers from Sexkillz, Mukina and his royal Highestness Seun

Indeed, NL is like the perception of an Elephant to six blind men, to the one touching the leg the Elephant is like the trunk of a tree, to the one touching the side its like a wall....etc. It depends on your motive of joining as for me i've learnt a lot about importation of which i was a novice and which could make one financially free, first hand job listing and latest news local and internationally. Thumbs up for seun.
Re: What Have You Gained Through Nairaland In This Outgoing Year 2012 by CFCfan(m): 8:12pm On Dec 26, 2012
I learned that Tonto Dike would always make d frontpage, her name could also be spelt as 'Decay'.

I also learned that asking "how is this going to affect d price of ....." could get u banned.

Another lesson learnt is that Awolowo v Ojukwu threads are quite popular.

My favorite lesson though is the discovery of d "Derailers' thread". It's simply a piece of ingenuity.
