Education / Re: Weekend Brain Drill: Can You Solve This In 30 secs? by ektbear: 7:02am On Jul 20, 2015
It took me longer than 30 seconds, but the answer is 16 people.

Basically, for each pair of people they shake hands. So if there are N people, there N choose 2 handshakes in total. Solving the equation (using a calculator basically):

N choose 2 = 120

we have N=16.
Romance / Re: My Addiction To Sleeping With Prostitutes !!!! by ektbear: 7:07am On Jan 12, 2015
Worse still I have a girlfriend & my
girlfriend says we can't have sex until we
get married. She doesn't know I patronize
aristos though.

Find a girlfriend who is willing to have sex before marriage. Patronizing prostitutes is bad for your pocketbook and bad for your health.


Romance / Re: What Else Will A Guy Gain From A Girl That Says "No Sex" In The Relationship? by ektbear: 5:10am On Dec 28, 2014
I dated and loved a woman who didn't want to have premarital sex. It was one of the most frustrating periods of my life. In hindsight the only reason why I agreed to such is because I was suffering from deep depression.

It just isn't worth it being in a relationship with a girl who doesn't put out, unless you are 100% sure you are going to marry her and the marriage is taking place in less than 6 months grin

Religion / Re: Why Did It Take 2,000 Years For The Gospel To Reach Nigeria? by ektbear: 5:04am On Dec 28, 2014
I think I brought up a similar question with my parents when I was around 8 years old.

Basically, I was concerned about the fate of my ancestors: if Christianity is a prerequisite for reaching heaven, then there is no way my pagan ancestors could have possibly made heaven. Which to me at the time seemed unjust and unfair, since they had no exposure to the religion.

So either:
1) God is unjust, and sent almost all West Africans, Southern Africans, Indians, Chinese, and Native Americans to hell before about 1500 AD or so.
2) or God judges people who've never been exposed to his Word by a different standard than those he uses for people who have been exposed. In other words, our pagan ancestors still could have made heaven despite not being Christians.

I'm inclined to believe #2.

Though of course both options above assume that you believe in the existence of the Abrahamic God, which not everyone does.


Politics / Re: There Is Little Evidence Buhari Can Fix Nigeria - BBC Will Ross by ektbear: 9:05pm On Dec 12, 2014

Thank you, my brother. The American & the British governments know GMB is a bad market for their agenda.

They know GMB will not hesitate to sideline & cut them off, just like he did to them in 1984, resulting in the I.B.B coup d'etat in August 1985, which was a C.I.A & MI6 backed plot.

Our concern now should be GMB's safety because we do not need star gazers & astrologers to tell us the C.I.A & MI6 will throw hits at him again just like they attempted in Kaduna.

I can't speak for the British, but why on earth would the US care a whit about Nigeria or Buhari? Nigeria is only relevant on the international stage because of high oil prices. Oil prices are plummeting (below $60/barrel: http://www.bloomberg.com/energy/), and moreover the US is itself a massive producer of oil, so needs nothing from Nigeria.
Romance / Re: The Shameful Adulterous Lives Of Some Today's Ladies by ektbear: 9:25pm On Dec 07, 2014
Some ladies today commit all sorts of immoralities without d fear of God. These include:

1. Sex Before Marriage
Any sex outside marriage without parents' consent is a sin. This is fornication/adultery.

LOL, Nigeria Ebola, Congo ??

You can see clearly that it pained so many in Africa that Nigeria did not wallow in Ebola. Africa is a lost continent, Nigerians have so got to understand this. We got ta build walls around Nigeria or we're lost along with the baboons that infest the continent.

What difference is there between your attitude and an anti-African racist from Europe? Reconsider your thoughts and words.


Romance / I Got Lucky by ektbear: 9:31pm On Nov 07, 2014
I've been seeing this girl for two weeks now. We've talk or hang out like 2+ hrs a day nearly every day.

I don't think I've ever been impressed by a woman like this before. She is:

1) tall
2) beautiful
3) brilliant, well-educated
4) has overcome a lot of adversity in her life
5) trilingual (English, Hebrew, Russian)
6) Has been in her country's army
7) Really likes me a lot.

I thank God, and hope that this sweet situation will last.


Business / Re: 30 Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs In Africa 2014 by ektbear: 8:56am On Oct 28, 2014
Kenyans dominated the list. I expected more representation from Nigeria. Just 4 on d list.Make a list of 30 richest Africans and u'll c 20 Nigerians on d list. It tells us dat our youths are nt doing well.

Nigerians (myself included) are risk-averse, and prefer safe cushy jobs with guaranteed money cheesy


Business / 30 Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs In Africa 2014 by ektbear: 4:11am On Oct 28, 2014
They seem to have forgotten my name from the list sad

There has never been a more inspired generation of young Africans. These builders, innovators and risk takers are fervent in their resolve to transform the continent. They are solving critical socio-economic problems, exporting African culture to the world, creating job opportunities for Africans, re-telling Africa’s stories, and writing the future.

Following a request I made last week, I received over 800 nominations for this year’s tally of Africa’s brightest young entrepreneurs under age 30. Seven of the names on this year’s list were featured last year, but there are 23 new rising stars you need to watch. Since there weren’t enough under-30 entrepreneurs who could meet the criteria, I included a few 30-year-olds.

Women don't produce enough testosterone to naturally get abs/definition like that.

So either "she" is a "he", or she is taking some supplements.

Forum Games / Re: Believe Me, This Is Going To Make You Sweat!.the Best Of Puzzles. by ektbear: 8:31pm On Jul 12, 2014
Since the box labels are potentially wrong, you may as well assume that they are unlabeled (the labels don't help you at all).
Forum Games / Re: Believe Me, This Is Going To Make You Sweat!.the Best Of Puzzles. by ektbear: 8:29pm On Jul 12, 2014
Seems obvious how to do this with 4 draws (empty any of the two boxes fully determining the contents, and so by elimination you know what the third one contains).

But not obvious to me how to do this in less than 4 draws.

Even 3 seems challenging, no matter how I do it. Here are essentially the ways I can choose three draws:

1) Draw two balls from first box, one from second => If I'm unlucky in draws, still ambiguity about what box #2 and #3 contain
2) Draw one ball from each => Again, same deal. I could draw white, black, white. Does this correspond to {white, white}, {black, black}, {white, black}, or {white, black}, {black, black}, {white, white}? I'd need more draws to figure it out with this choices.

I seem to be missing something that allows one to do less than 4.

Politics / Re: Iraq/syria ISIS ISLAMISTS - Islamic State Of Maghreb Will Include NIGERIA! by ektbear: 7:55pm On Jun 30, 2014

How is that even possible when they don't even have the resources and firepower to defeat the Kurds and Shias in Iraq? Hezbollah have been tearing them a new ar.sehole for years now in Syria. Also, I believe you saw what the Egyptians did to Muslim brotherhood - so how is this propaganda possible? How are they're going to defeat the powerful Algerian army for this pipe-dream?

The whole thing is just propaganda to make a certain narrative sound interesting...and the only reason why the Iraqi army fell apart was because all the generals/commanders stationed in that part of Iraq are sunnis, and they were bribed not to fight, the same way the yanks bribed them during the Iraqi invasion in 2003. Furthermore, all the areas they captured in Iraq are Sunni areas. If they were that brave, why did they evacuate Kirkuk when the Kurds got there? And why haven't they attacked Southern Iraq, where the Shias are, or the Kurdish part of the country?

Don't believe the useless hype.

Correct yarn

Programming / Re: Java Vs C Family by ektbear: 2:17am On Dec 31, 2013
If you want to write an operating system, device driver or a real-time video game, you need C or C++.

But for most other tasks in computing, (e.g. internet servers/apps, desktop applications, distributed computing, etc), I think Java is performant enough, and also substantially safer (easier to write bug-free code) and requires less time to program the equivalent task than in say C or C++.
