|Family / Re: My Husband Spits On My Face During Quarrels by abbey621(m): 8:42pm On Dec 30, 2012|
Whenever I read stories like this, I end up questioning the motive. You've been married for 5 years, he's been doing this for 2 years, you are not in Africa where you are restricted, you are in a country where the woman has greater power and yet you do nothing. WOMAN WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVE? There's always two side to a story, he did not just wake up one morning and decide to start spitting on you, if you can not communicate effectively with him, seek professional advice or better yet spiritual advice.

Whoever wrote this post must have been sleeping for the past 5 years, Blackberry was never a major force in the American market, the market is controlled by Apple and Android, Blackberry's major power rests in Europe and Africa, so people do not panic!
|Family / Re: Should I Greet & Call My Husband's Younger Sister 'Aunty'? by abbey621(m): 3:19pm On Oct 10, 2012|
Girls of nowadays, overzealous pride and humongous ego, what would it cost you to do what will bring peace to your marriage? Let me tell you something, there's nothing worse than having in-laws that despise you, even if your husband loves you crazily, he will bow to pressure from his family at the slightest sign of wrongdoing by you. Another question, why the stress? Why let a simple issue like this worry you, you talk about feeling belittled but to me it sounds like you are over-complicating things, if you don't have to see them everyday, calling them aunty or brother or sister, takes nothing from you but if you have to see them everyday call them nicknames, you are matured and should be able to put out any fire at the slightest sight of smoke, be wise, things like this have a way of resolving if you learn to see it with a little bit of humor.
|Violent/Disgusting Non-Celebrity Crimes / Re: Desola Ade-Unuigbe Supports Aluu Community by abbey621(m): 4:31pm On Oct 09, 2012|
People are entitled to their opinions, please let's not curse them or intimidate them. Here's my point of view, I grew up in the ghetto community of Mushin, where robbers and thieves are dealt instant justice, not because there's no law but because the people have been oppressed for so long, being robbed in daylight and so on, the people have decided to deal with thieves mercilessly, that's why if you steal tomatoes or laptop, you get the same treatment. I also schooled at O.O.U, where cultist kill and injure so many, where the innocent are frightened out of their skin and all innocence is lost. My point is people get killed everyday, robbers rob everyday, if we had respectable law enforcement maybe so much lives wouldn't be wasted. Some of you have never been to that community, we don't really know if those boys were innocent or guilty, we can only pass judgment from far away, my question to you is if you saw something like that happening in your community would you interfere and attempt to save those boys or would you just watch and silently condemned? Yea I thought as much, as a society we have failed, even more importantly we have failed as humans, sometimes the right thing isn't always easy to do!

Mr. know it all, I'm sorry to burst your bubble, the size of your belly has nothing to do with how developed your stick becomes. Stop feeding us nonsense, HABA! Try hereditary or other biological factors, I believe that would make more sense, for example Asians have the shortest stick length while Africans the longest, but that does not mean there are no short stick men in Africa or no long stick in Asia.
|Health / Re: Help With Cure For 'Pot Belly' by abbey621(m): 1:16pm On Sep 11, 2012|
You are only as good as you feel, the girl didn't leave you because of pot belly, your confidence diminished because of your physical limitations causing you to seem dull in her eyes. People spend more time trying to diet and slim down and really lose sight of the simple things in life. Forget about the girl, are you comfortable with your body? If no, then exercise and diet but if yes then you don't need suffer yourself, raise your confidence level by making sure you are successful in other areas and girls would be lining up at your door step. Many have tried to change themselves in order to satisfy a woman, not knowing that it's impossible, do your best and worry less.
|Family / Re: How Do You Welcome Your Husband Home After Work? by abbey621(m): 4:05pm On Aug 29, 2012|
The thing that always baffles me is the average Nigerian's way of thinking that all situations are the same. When it comes to marriage, people have their own way of doing things. In the U.S, most households consists of the husband and wife both working, sometimes they don't see each other till late at night, sometimes the husband prepares dinner, other time the wife does, both are working in order to pay the bills, so they pay little attention to frivolous things. the truth is as long as the couple understands the mechanism and are satisfied with it, why should you be concerned??
|Islam for Muslims / Re: Honest Opinion Of A Sincere Muslim by abbey621(m): 3:50pm On Aug 27, 2012|
@Poster - Coming to Nairaland and raising religious tensions won't solve anything, neither would your gentle words of encouragement for Muslims to take action. Nigeria is a messed up country and the people are responsible for their own sufferings, we all can blame religion all we want but whenever we decide to get back to reality, we would realize that the problem is greed, corruption and the cowardliness of our Nigerian people. Only in Nigeria do we protest name change, fuel prices and other menial issues and leave more crucial issues like violence, corruption and economy behind. Any country in which the people are not willing to die for their freedom is bound to fall. The central bank is busy introducing monetary policies that will triple inflation by creating a 5,000 naira note, our president is ensuring that more terrorists would emerge in the future by negotiating with extremists, more and more people are being killed by the death traps known as Nigerian roads and aviation industry and yet, we blame religion and yet we still see each other as Muslims and Christians instead of brothers and sisters, it is easier to blame the person from another religion instead of tackling the government, Nigeria needs a REVOLUTION not a religious SOLUTION.
|Travel / Re: What Are The Most RACIST Countries? by abbey621(m): 5:26pm On Aug 22, 2012|
Excuse me! My response was in reply to a post and you'll see the post in quotations. What you and some others fail to realize is that bigotry, racism and tribalism are all fruits from a single tree known as discrimination. Call it whatever you want, one is just a milder or more cynical form of the other. Of course you can't have racism in Nigeria because we all belong to the same race, but tribalism which to me is just a younger brother of racism exists. You can't enlighten people about racism when you fail to put out the burning fire at home, which is tribalism. Threads like these makes me sick because often we want to label others as evil or racists, when we are walking the same path. Racism leads to hatred, division and inferiority complex, guess what, so does tribalism....
|Travel / Re: What Are The Most RACIST Countries? by abbey621(m): 4:56pm On Aug 22, 2012|
Once again you keep shooting yourself on the foot. In Nigeria, how many innocent people die from police brutality or accidental discharge? Things happen but that doesn't mean because of a few bad eggs that a whole race should be condemned. Everyday whites are discriminating against blacks but you also forgot to say blacks are discriminating among themselves and American blacks are one of the most discriminating bunch of people, when I first got to the U.S, they mocked me for my accent, told me, how come I can speak English, asked me do I know what a car is? Have I ever slept inside a house or do I live in a hut? Sometimes discrimination comes from ignorance and you don't pay ignorance with violence. You need to stop taking everything so personal, life is too short to hold grudges. Now let me enlighten you with some statistics, did you know in the U.S, there are more blacks dying from gang wars or black on black crimes than blacks dying from racial violence or maltreatment by the white cops? Did you know that every year, majority of robberies occur, with black men robbing rich or middle class white men? Yes racism is real and exists abundantly and we still have 50 to 60% of white race more racists than ever but the majority of them are racists out of fear or ignorance and as such I can't really help but to pray for them, killing them or repaying them with violence solves nothing, it just proves to them that the black man is dangerous.
|Travel / Re: What Are The Most RACIST Countries? by abbey621(m): 4:28pm On Aug 22, 2012|
Stop using illogical reasoning to justify your twisted point of view. Everyday we have people of different origins being maltreated, does that mean it's okay for them to maltreat others because they were maltreated. This is exactly what's wrong with the world nowadays, the spirit of vengeance, I have this silly colleague of mine, that keeps insisting that the white men took his fore fathers as slaves and hence by stealing from the white men or robbing him, he's just trying to get payback. Two wrongs never made a right, if you keep dwelling in the mistakes of the past, you can't fulfill the promise of the future, you have been to many countries in search of something, if your country Nigeria could provide you with the necessary tools to succeed, you wouldn't have needed to travel in the first place.

[size=12pt][font=Book Antiqua][color=#000099]Then you must be missing the point!!
I never denied being racist!!
If I catch a whiteman on the streets of Naija at night without the popo being by him, I will personally mug him.. And should he act a fool, I might just kill him.
You dont want me to give you my history with whitefolks.. I am also very well travelled. These animals are not worth having mercy on..
Are you the only one that's ever been maltreated, you are still using the past to determine your future, please get a life. Just listen to yourself, you'll mug a white man or kill him, just because of something he had no part of. It's like All Nigerians being prosecuted for what Ambdutallab, the Nigerian underwear bomber did. You said, you are well traveled but you failed to learn anything positive from your exposure to western cultures, you failed to see the bigger picture, you are blinded by all the negatives and you missed the chance to see the light.
|Travel / Re: What Are The Most RACIST Countries? by abbey621(m): 3:03pm On Aug 22, 2012|
omodapson: Racism goes beyond skin colour. Has anyone asked why we call people of a particular tribe a race? thus Igbo race, Yoruba race, etc.
I think you and other people that defines Igbo, Yoruba, e.t.c as a race are largely mistaken. Have you ever seen a white man claim to be Igbo or Yoruba? I don't think so because these tribes are 99.99% part of the black race. Have you ever seen a Yoruba man or Igbo man claim to be Caucasian? We have Mexicans, Spaniards, Puerto Ricans all belonging to different tribes but none of them can be classified as a race because they all belong to a race called Hispanics. Knowledge is power!
@poster- Racism has many forms, we have reverse racism, internal racism and so much more. Internal racism occurs when people of the same race criticize one another based on the variation of their skin color or characteristics. I have seen a black person abusing another black person because he was too dark. I have seen another black person being abused because she wasn't black enough. In terms of the region with the highest amount of racism, one cannot overlook countries such as Ukraine, Germany and Russia, these countries have laws that promote racism and are less strict on racism cases.
|Islam for Muslims / Re: When Someone Insults Islam: How To Behave by abbey621(m): 5:21pm On Aug 08, 2012|
If you are confused, stay confused but don't try to confuse others with your jargon. Your religion is based on words from a group of writers passed down and modified from generation to generation. The original Hebrew bible is so different from the modern English translated bible, unfortunately so has the true meaning of Christianity. Islam may be guilty of being overly aggressive and not being clear enough to people of other religion but Christianity is just as guilty of manipulation and propaganda. Imagine you claiming you listened to pastor Abraham and that shows proof that Christianity is the true religion, I find it hard not to laugh at your gullibility. Here is a fact that no Christian or Muslim can dispute, God works in mysterious ways, and no one is guaranteed heaven or hell, he alone decides that, so spare me the story and stop being slave to religious bigotry.
|Islam for Muslims / Re: When Someone Insults Islam: How To Behave by abbey621(m): 3:02pm On Aug 08, 2012|
I could care less about religion. It's nothing but one group or the other trying to enforce their point of view about the best way to worship God. I have yet to seen anyone that died and came back to reveal that Christianity or Islam is the true religion, and until that happens Christianity is not superior to Islam and Islam is not superior to Christianity. Throughout history it has been one group killing the other, earlier it was Christianity doing most of the killings, with the wicked roman churches and nowadays Islam has grown stronger and dark and evil minded extremists have misinterpreted the religion and taken the law into their own hands. The biggest tragedy of all in regards to Nigeria is that, the issue is not even religion, it's more of a ethnic, political and poverty triggered manipulation of the populace, you ignorant fools are so blind that you celebrate pastors, general overseers, alfas and sultans and put them on a holy pedestal, when most of them are nothing but crooks willing to watch you and your neighbor destroy each other.

|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Dangote Truck Drivers With HND/BSc: No Respect For Nigerian Graduates by abbey621(m): 4:31pm On Aug 02, 2012|
Pride: The single most killer of success. Most of you say you would rather sit at home and remain jobless than to become a truck driver, I think laziness and ignorance are disturbing most of you. If the job pays well and you have the necessary driving skills then why not? In case most of you haven't noticed, Nigerian Bachelors degrees are mostly useless without some experience or other relevant certifications, working for a company like Dangote is a good way to get your foot in the door, it might actually lead to advancement and a much more gratifying position. Good things come to those who are humble, you'll see graduates and even master degree holders working menial jobs here in yankee because things are rough everywhere and without some working experience, you are likely to be looked upon as a rookie. Thumbs up to Dangote, at least he is creating jobs.
|Politics / Re: Nigeria must leave the global economy. by abbey621(m): 2:29pm On Jul 27, 2012|
Whenever I see one of these ridiculous threads, I can't help but to be amazed at the level of ignorance of some Nigerians. In a world where even the super giants are trying to expand their economies beyond their physical location because of the economic meltdown, we have someone in a third world country advocating isolationism. I even heard someone said that Nigerians have never profited from having a global economy, hello? Blackberry, Nokia, Coca-Cola, and so much more. Thousands of Nigerians are being granted visas every year because their country cannot provide them the necessary tools to succeed, many Nigerian companies have investments in foreign countries, in order to maximize their influences and yet you said Nigerians have never profited from having a global economy, I laugh in Swahili! What you don't understand is that, the problem with Nigeria and many African countries is corruption, leaders and trusted individuals responsible for the welfare of the citizens are screwed up from the start and are only after what they can gain, isolationism isn't going to fix corruption in Africa, in fact it is going to encourage it, because if the rest of the world is no longer involved with Africa, then the web of darkness continues to grow stronger.
|Phones / Re: Weak Points Of Blackberry Phones by abbey621(m): 2:41pm On Jul 24, 2012|
My friend, calm down, when you don't know something, try and ask for enlightenment. First of all, when you remove the battery of a blackberry phone and wait 2 to 3 minute, you are performing what is called a hard reset. The OS automatically feels that there's something wrong and must reload in order to fix the problem. If there's no problem with your phone, I don't see why you would want to remove the battery. Furthermore, don't ever compare a machine like Blackberry to an outdated piece of garbage like Nokia phones, a Blackberry is a computer, printer, virtual machine, GPS navigator, and so much more. In fact on my 9810 with the 7.1 O.S update, I'm able to use my blackberry phone with the playbook through Blackberry bridge, I'm able to respond to BBM messages through the playbook and do so much more. The reason Blackberry might seem like a normal phone to Nigerians is simple, the network and the literacy level of the populace is not where it ought to be. Networks like MTN, Airtel and Glo are ripping you guys off, when you experience the Blackberry on a blazing 4G speed, you'll never use another device!

Young man, pls shut your trap and stop spitting nonsense! The original illuminati group has nothing to do with the current views being spread around. Also according to the modern theory, in order for you to be an illuminati, you have to come from a strong blood line, you can't join illuminati, you have to be born into it, your bloodline must come from the original 13 founding families, all these crap about JayZ, Kanye and others are just silly, wishful thinking.
|Celebrities / Re: Pastor To D'banj - Join Illuminati And Land In Hell by abbey621(m): 2:42pm On Jul 19, 2012|
teminoni: Plz, ignorance is not an excuse. Because u don't believe in illuminati or because u have not seen proof of it, doesn't mean it does not exist.
How ignorant can you be? Illuminati is the name of a group founded in eastern Europe in the early 20th century. It was a group of scientist that believed that there's much more to the world than what religion tells us, they believed more in the scientific process and because they were wealthy individuals they had the resources to pursue knowledge, the church hated this and termed them as evil, we have a lot of things in the world today that religion simply does not explain, instead of following what you have been told by clergy men and church doctrine, seek true knowledge and see the light, in order words illuminate your life and be enlightened.........illuminati

You said, Cape Verde, Senegal are more western than the countries being referred to as the west or western civilization, not knowing that North America is way west of the countries you mentioned, but now you try to turn it around and say Western Europe, anyways bros, we don catch your ignorance. You remind me of a kid seeking attention, the more you try, the more foolish you sound, I don't have time to respond to most of your idiotic comments, so I'm going to leave you with this piece of advice: ranting on Nairaland will not solve your inferiority complex, neither would insulting people who you can never measure up to in your pathetic life, the best way to convince people to see things from your point of view is to do proper research, publish a book or be acknowledged in the scholastic world, goodluck!

|Politics / Re: What Is “sub-saharan Africa” Exactly? by abbey621(m): 1:41pm On Jul 13, 2012|
It's a shame, everything has to be about racism or sentiments. If the poster remotely bothered to do proper research, he would have discovered that the use of the prefix 'sub' means below, so sub-saharan means below the Sahara, there's no other way to look at it, stop bringing sentiments into everything, it makes you look foolish. Any word with a prefix must be defined in the context of the prefix, sub-acute means below acute, sub-par means not up to par, whereas submit, submarine, subside are completely different because the prefix is disguised in the meaning, submit means to give up or release or to lower all defenses, submarine is a machine most useful below water, with marine meaning water and sub meaning below, subside means to reduce or lower. English language is simple, it's our way of thinking that complicates things!

Let's get one thing straight here, I'm in no support of Boko Haram but to distinguish MEND from BOko Haram and say that one is just a friendly militant group and the other a terrorist group is absolutely insane!

Your government is flawed and you and other pigs out there continue to support them rather than calling a spade a spade! According to your philosophy, the Northerners are to blame for their failures, if that is true, then the people of the Niger- Delta are to blame for the destruction and oil damaged lands that they live in, the people living in the ghetto are to be blamed for their poverty and so on......You must be mad!

amosy007: if boko haram is doing exactly what mend is doing.. No one will call them a terrorist group they will rather tag them millitants or beta still freedom fighters... GO AND CHECK WORLD DEFINITION OF TERRORISM AND MILITANCY
How ridiculous can you be? You are nothing but a hypocrite! If it walks, looks and quacks like a duck then it definitely must be a duck! Don't sugar coat things, violence is violence no matter the form. MEND utilized explosives, kidnapping and destruction for their cause, Boko Haram took it a step higher and made it more advance, your government decided to reward MEND with amnesty and a decent salary, and now you want them to fight Boko Haram, I still dey laugh! The only reason most of you cowards are shouting against Boko Haram is the religious crimes they are committing, remove that and Boko Haram would be described as Militants even if they continue to bomb police stations and destroy buildings. Only in Nigeria would someone describe Militancy as a good thing.

fesse: Mr. Carson or whatever he is called is being sponsored by the Northern elites. The truth is too obvious for a blind man to see. When will America tell the world the truth. The agenda of boko haram is too clear. Are they (North) the only region affected by poor governance? For America to use poverty, poor governance to exonerate boko haram is not only bad but shown the world the stuff they are made.
Shut your mouth! Poverty, bad governance and high level of illiteracy are the main cause of Boko Haram, if your government was half as strong as the American government, Boko Haram would have been wiped out long ago, instead of hoping for foreigners to save us, let's focus on our government and why they refuse to act?
