|Politics / Re: only an illiterate Will ask why im The Emperor of Western Nigeria-odua Ademusiwa by musiwa94: 1:06am|
Iwho cares about the alafin, alafin did not help amasun or ajimobi. i hate when you people talk up about alafin. You do it because is not an educated man, but you have to know there are over 2000 dukes or obas of the same status as alafin. And over 70% of them have degrees and are better educated than politician. Only 40% of politician are educated.
One uneducated alafin compare with 2000 dukes who are educated. Alafin s just an ordinary duke of a town.
I can name lawyer, doctors ,engineers, judges, dentist etc among them other dukes or obas. More than half of them are more educated than fashola or tinubu etc to be a duke now you need at least a degree, compare to politician with on less than high school.
The position, I hold is the most important position . oduduwa ademusiwa is the real oduduwa in history. We pretended we were dead, that why, they have not fought for their right.
I intend to do that.
|Religion / Re: A Deadly Blow that DESTROYS the Doctrine of Immortal Soul by dolphinheart(m): 12:45am|
I'm happy that you have agreed on the issue of the external force acting on our physical being .
Man is flesh, flesh activated by the life force giving by God to adam.
The same spirit that is in me is also the same spirit that is in animals.
Adam and the animals where not giving souls, they became souls when there physical body became activated by Gods life force.
Now to the issue of adam
1.) you said "Adam flesh became flesh and his soul went to Sheol".
I've proved to you that adam does not have a soul different from his flesh .
When adam was created , he was created as perfect flesh and did not become flesh when he sinned. He was flesh since the first day he was created .
Remember what God told him " from dust you are"
Adam as a soul (living being ) went to sheol(hell) when he died . Hell/sheol/hades is the common grave where humans , whether righteous or unrighteous, good or evil go to when they die.
Throughout the inspired Scriptures, Sheol/hell/ hades/grave( all meaning the same thing) is continually associated with death and not life.
Ps 18:4, 5; 49:7-10, 14, 15; 88:2-6; 89:48;
Isa 28:15-18 ;
also compare Ps 116:3, 7-10 with 2Co 4:13, 14.
It is spoken of as “the land of
darkness” (Job 10:21) and a place of silence. (Ps 115:17)
Abel apparently was the first one to go to Sheol, and since then countless millions of human dead have joined him in the dust of the ground.
Now what does the bible say is condition of man(soul) when he dies and go to hell.
The dead are shown to be “conscious of nothing at all”/ "don't know anything" and the death state to be one of complete inactivity/no thoughts, thinking. ( Ec 9:5, 10; Ps 146:4)
Those dying are described as going into “the dust of death” ( Ps 22:15)
In death there is no mention of God or any praising of him. No life remembers or praise God in hell/sheol
Ps 6:5; For in death there is no remembrance of you: in the grave who shall give you
Isa 38:18, 19;For the grave cannot praise thee, death
can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth
In both the Hebrew and the Greek Scriptures, death is likened to sleep, a fitting comparison not only because of the unconscious condition of the dead but also because of the hope of an awakening through the resurrection. ( Ps 13:3; Joh 11:11-14)
2). U still have not answered the question on number 2 and ill restate it below
2)All men have immortal soul, whether good or bad.
(So y u come say adam lost imortality when he lost his spiritual closeness to God and
he became dust? )
(what is death , if its not the loss of life?)
(What does the bible say happens to man
when he dies)
( Which bible verse tells us directly (no derived analogy pls)that man is still alife after death.
3). If I'm wrong in my understanding about what you said on 3rd question(s)pls correct me,
*You stated that adam is presently alive in heaven, But he went to the good side of hell before jesus took him to heaven .you based this on the parable of jesus about the rich man and lazarus and ROM 10: 6-7
My remarks/ answer : adam is not presently in heaven why? Cus as at the point of his death, the hope of heaven was not his hope or that of the righteous ones before jesus came to earth. The first mention of heavenly hope was made by jesus when he came to earth. Heaven is only for those that where "born again" , who knew jesus cus its through his name and knowledge of him that they will ascend into heaven .
Now if adam is in heaven, and he went to heaven when jesus went to hell and then took him(adam) to heaven with him, the following questions requires answers
A. Where where they(the resurrected ones) when jesus was resurrected and still on earth for weeks after his resurrection? .
Did they go to heaven before jesus ascended and presented his ransome sacrifice to his God?
Did they go heaven before jesus had a chance to prepare a place for them .?
If after jesus has immediately sent them to heaven when he was resurrected, who are the righteous that are going to be resurrected with the unrighteous after the last day? Remember that the bible verse you are quoting to defend ur beliefs are made by those who are still alive and are not dead yet, so what happens to them immediately they die, do they go to hell or not?
What happens to a present day righteous man ?.
Do you know that those who will ascend to heaven either dead or alive (first resurrection)will do so at jesus coming , I want to hear ur view, has jesus come or is he still coming?
To be continued.
|Jokes Etc / The Most Hilarious Man Jokes Ever... by BlazinFrost: 12:43am|
In the year 1959, my great-grand father, Sadiq (nicknamed “Sir Dick” for his lengthy joystick) wrote down a few guidelines for the future Nigerian (male) youths with the hope of sneaking it into the constitution. Sadly, it was rejected and called “a huge waste of time”. Sadiq is dead but I, El-Farooq shall carry on his legacy and share his rules with you with the hope that lives will be touched. [don’t ask how he knew about stuff like FIFA games & selfies back in 1960, just umm…play along]. Ladies, you can read this too & set your man straight:
editors note: I mean, if he’s not straight and he’s your man, you already have a problem
1. In a game of FIFA (or in actual football kick-around) with your buddies you are NOT allowed to refer to a “cross” as a “pull-out”. This is to avoid controversial statements such as “O boy! Tunde, that pull out mad oh. See as you no even waste time just dey use pull out dey finish me. And you come sabi head well. Na you bad pass for pull-out & heading”.
2. Under no circumstance is a guy allowed to use his hard earned money to purchase an umbrella neither is he allowed to use one (except while sharing it with a lover). However, he is allowed to accept it as a souvenir at a wedding but must dump it in the closest trash right after the reception is over.
editors note: No really, are there guys that buy umbrellas? Are they still referred to as guys?
3. Every guy must have Livescores.com bookmarked on his (and his girlfriend’s) phone/PC. Every guy. Every.
editors note: Some ‘guys’ just went “what’s livescores?” You my friend need to handover your man card.
4. Even if a guy hates basketball, when your mates are talking about the NBA you are to chip in the exact words: “But man, Vince Carter killed it at the 2000 slam dunk contest. Christ!” OR “T-Mac’s 13pts in 33seconds against Spurs is still one of the greatest comebacks of all time, though.”
5. When hosting your friends for an EPL or UCL game (or the El-Classico) it is only normal that the host provides the alcohol while the friends must all bring different variety of “chow” (pizza, suya etc). It wouldn’t hurt for the friends to bring along emergency alcohol, though.
6. Any lady who perfectly explains the offside rule in football should first be double-checked for a joystick & upon passing this test should be treated like the goddess that she is.
editors note: and you best start treating ‘her’ as one of the guys. These ‘girls’ are the ones you need to hide your PS pad from. NEVER CHALLENGE THEM TO A GAME!!!
7. No skinny jeans.
8. Every guy should have his own badass tailor who sews his own suit for him. Even the greatest ‘suit wearer’ of all time had his.
9. In the immortal words of Big Ghost, a guy is permitted a maximum of 5 selfies per year. If however he does not exhaust these 5 takes, he is not permitted to carry what’s left over to the next year. The count must be restarted.
10. You are permitted to sing R&B songs in a Karaoke bar. It is one of the 2 places on earth where guys are allowed to hit high notes. The 2nd being a (non-prison) shower.
editors note: and please, never speak of what transpired in there with yo homies once you walk out the door.
11. If a guy spends the night in police custody he is required to spit a rap freestyle consisting a minimum of 16bars to his buddies.
12. You are not allowed to perform CPR on a fellow guy you’re not related to. Let him die in (straight) peace. I’m sure he’ll understand.
Exception: You work for the Red Cross.
13. A guy is not permitted to be a designated non-drinking driver for more than 3 night outs in a row with the hommies. Seriously, just watching your buddies have all the fun & destroy their liver is both lame & wicked. Smart & responsible, yes, but more of lame & wicked.
14. A guy must engage in coital activities with a lady while being tied up and Christina Aguilera’s “Nasty Naughty Boy” playing in the background at least once in his life time.
15. A guy is permitted to cry tears of joy on his wedding day. No G-points shall be deducted from his gangster-account.
Let it out ma nigga
Let it out ma nigga
editors note: afterall, it’s not everyday you tie your nuts.
16. Just like in #4, it doesn’t matter if you’re not a fan of the rap genre or not, every “Who’s the greatest rapper?” argument may last for minutes, hours or in extreme cases, days but must be halted when one party alters the words “Well, the greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th”.
17. No matter how close they are, no two unrelated guys should EVER see a movie at the cinema past 7 o’clock… except Delta Force 1 becomes available in 3D.
18. If a guy ever leaves his house to buy a pad then it better be for his Play Station or X-Box and NOT for his girlfriend or ex-box (apologies for the corny pun).
19. A guy is permitted ONLY ONE pedicure & manicure session in a life time & this must be done when he’s away on a business trip to another city where no one there has a clue who he is.
N/B: This rule has no loophole. Even if you give your life to Christ & become “born again” it still counts as one life time.
20. A guy is permitted only one barber per city. This barber, besides his excellent hair cutting skills must meet the golden law:
When standing, a barber’s pelvic region must be lower or higher than (but never the same level as) his seated client’s head.
[This rule prevents a barber’s emergency Situation from having to strike his client on the face or the back of the head.]
Just look at
Just look at
21. “Dangerously In Love” is the greatest Beyoncé song of all time & thus, it’s understandable for a guy to play this while thinking about the woman he intends to spend the rest of his life with. However, “Run The World(Girls)” is complete trash and should never be found on a guy’s iTunes.
N/B: Every guy, upon access to a lady’s laptop, must search for this song in her music folder, hold down the shift key & alter the words “F*ck that sh*t!” while aggressively striking the delete key.
22. A guy without the ability to grow facial hair has two options to make up for it:
-Work out at the gym for 28hrs a week to make up for it with a buff body.
-Take his life by jumping off a bridge.
23. Upon seeing a flying cockroach in the presence of a lady friend, a guy is to puff out his chest and tell his (presumably) freaked out lady friend “don’t worry baby, I’ll kill it”, walk out the room, let out a shriek (inaudible to the lady friend in the room), do 10 push-ups then go back there and kill it. Running away wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
24. When one of your buddies is pretending to be a celebrity in order to pick up a chic, all the remaining members of the crew are required to act star-struck and ask for a picture when they walk past him. Autographs are too damn suspicious in this part of the world.
25. A guy is required to carry his extremely wasted friend all the way home & leave a bottle of water & chow beside him. When he wakes up & the whole story of how you carried him home is being relayed to him, he is to express his gratitude of the kind gesture with only two words “My nigga!” & never speak of it again.
26. Just like a guy has his own preferred brand of beer (HEINEKEN!!) and/or rum (CRUZAN!!), a guy must have his own preferred brand of Newspaper which he must read at least 3 times a week. Seriously, you’re a man, read the damn papers & know about the happenings in the country.
27. Nature played a cruel prank us by making bananas go with nuts (groundnuts). While it is obviously not avoidable, there are rules for eating it:
-Two guys must never make eye contact while eating a banana.
-A guy eating a banana in public must break off part of it and eat but never put the whole thing in his mouth.
-A guy purchasing a banana must not complain/compliment the bananas & nuts. This is to avoid statements such as “Your banana too strong jor. You wan kill me?” or “This banana too soft. Be like say you no like me. Give me better banana joor”
28. A guy is to hold open the door of his car for a lady to enter except he has paid for her services or she is a feminist.
29. 3 things a guy must never admit to having no experience in; Driving a stick, killing a chicken and making a lady cum.
30. *To be filled by reader*

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~~
She strucked the match box and shakingly lighted the cigarette,all she needed was a puff,just a puff.She glanced at the door and lifted the cigarette to her lips.
"what are you doing?" David's voice sounded from the door way.
When had he opened the door?
She was about to reply when the smoke went the wrong way and she started coughing.
David took two giant strides and was by her side on the bed.
"take it easy babe,you should have told me you wanted to taste the stuff" He remarked as he patted her back.
"you may not want me to" She replied a little above whisper.
David pulled her into his arms and she felt safe,He took the cigarette from her and puffed,unlike her he didnt swallow.
She admired his adams apple as they bobbled up and down,on his left bicep was a tattoo of a scorpion and his chest was hairy.
David was manly,He reminded her of those macho men she used to read about some years ago.He was tall,dark in complexion and drop dead handsome while she and her twin were petite and light skinned.
David brought the cigarette to her lips and she reluctantly took a puff.
Hope her sister wouldnt perceive the smell of the cigarette_ she mused as she drew invisible patterns on David's hairy chest.
They were at David's lodge which was two street away from Her's,she had met Him when she had visited her girl friend caro,he took her breath away-the Guy was..ethereal handsome with this dreadlock of his.
"do you attend sabath?"she asked,the question had been on her lips since thier eyes had locked that day.
David grinned,his dimples showed and Sonia yearned for the day thier offsprings would have it.
Was she nuts?
Offsprings? No way,He wasnt the marrying type and why would She be thinking of marriage when she just clocked eighteen last month.
"yeah,let me get you something" He remarked and stood up,she had a strong hunch that he was trying to avoid the question.
He left the room with the cigarette dangling on his lips.
This was her first time here,she wasnt accustomed to paying Guys visit at thier lodge,Her mother had drummed in her ears that men were dangerous,that they took girls like orange,after sucking out the juice they discard the chaff,that they had a weapon between thier legs.
Bla bla bla bla
She knew the poor woman was only trying to scare them.
If only she could see her now' she mused and grinned.
Taking her time,she examined the room.it was painted a light blue just like sophia's while her's was painted pink.
Pink was her best colour,she had written her signature at a social network as 'if it isnt pink it isnt me'.
pink was the do deal.
David walked into the room just as she finished examining the room,He held a glass cup of orange juice in his right hand.
"hope it isnt poisoned" She said the first thing on her mind.
David frowned "so you think so ill of me"
"am sorry it was just a joke" She apologised as she took the glass from him.
"save it for another day,see i have to prepare for lecture,i will be back in a jiffy,let me go and take my bathe" He said with a far away look.
"okay" She mumbled and watched his back side as he left the room.
Omo...the guy gather!
She remembered He had told her he was a 200 level computer engineering student,She had believed him only when He had showed her his ID and matric pictures.
Guys can lie shaaa

|Politics / Breaking News: ISIL Beheads Second Japanese Hostage by gbemonology1: 11:37pm On Jan 31|
The Islamic State of Iraq (ISIL) and the Levant has released a video purportedly showing the killing of Japanese hostage Kenji Goto, a monitoring service has said.
The video released online by the armed group shows the journalist who was abducted while reporting on Syria’s civil war last year being beheaded with a knife by a black-clad masked fighter.
The Japanese government said it was trying to authenticate the video.
Goto was a freelance journalist who had reported from war zones for more than 20 years, in Africa, Afghanistan and the Middle East.
He travelled to Syria, at least in part, to attempt a rescue of his friend Haruna Yukawa, who was captured by ISIL in August.
Yukawa was a self-styled military consultant who went to Syria to set up a security company, despite a lack of any experience.
In October, Goto was captured by ISIL and was held captive alongside his friend. ISIL demanded a $200 million dollar ransom for the two men.
But last week, the armed group released a video. In it, there was an image of Goto, chained by the wrist, and in his hands a photograph of his friend Yukawa, who had been killed.
ISIL has beheaded and shot dead hundreds of captives – mainly Syrian and Iraqi soldiers – during its sweep across the two countries, and has celebrated its mass killings in extremely graphic videos.
The group also beheaded James Foley and Peter Kassig, American hostages; Steven Sotloff, an Israeli-American; and David Haines and Alan Henning, British captives.
|Celebrities / Whitney Houston's Daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown Found 'unconscious In Bath Tub' by Izadibabe: 11:34pm On Jan 31|
WSB- TV Atlanta is reporting that Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has been found unconscious in a bath tub.
21-year-old Bobbi Kristina was discovered by her husband Nick Gordon who told police that she was found face down in the water of the bathtub. Bobbi Kristina was revived at the scene by police who performed CPR until rescue crews arrived to take her to hospital. Police say she is alive and breathing, but her condition remains unknown.
An investigation is now being conducted at the scene by Police who have requested a search warrant to enter the home.
This is a spooky reminder of how her famous mother was found dead in a bath tub almost three years ago at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel and we are all wishing Bobby Kristina, a speedy recovery.
|Religion / Re: Small signs to show The End Is Coming by finofaya: 11:22pm On Jan 31|
Even then it still means that the end time began less than one or two days after Christ brought the message of salvation.
Even among the apostles of Christ there was a traitor. Yes, not all who call out Lord Lord are true christians, this has been true since the beginning of christianity, however it is much worse now. Before we had true missionaries who were willing to go into the jungle to preach at no profit to themseves, christians who were willing to die for christ if it came to it. can you say the same of today? Can you truthfully say of all the 50 churches on your street even one preaches the undiluted word of God about salvation? Arent 90% if not almost all of them in for the profit? It has never been this bad sir.
More instances of materialism in the church could also be because there are more church goers. Did you consider this alternative?
And what is wrong in me being prude? If that is what it takes for people to laugh at me for being modest concerning sexuality sir then I daresay it is a light cross to carry for me to enter heaven!
If you're a prude you see almost all sexual behaviour in a negative light.
You can easily snap the picture of the dead rat with maggotscoming out of its head, enlarge it and frame it and put it in your kid's room as decoration since you see nothing wrong with it.
Its the food chain. Maybe you'll put a lock on nat geo for your kids.
Weird, trippy, or mature are still a long way from demonic. They are simply harder to understand from the child's perspective. Such cartoons have been around since we've had cartoons.
Of course. So it wont matter in the film they are releasing in 2017 where the devil is actually the good guy and god is really the tyrant. The devil just wanted to do something different and god wouldnt let him. Poor devil. But as long as the film has a happy ending, no wahala.
They'd still have to paint the Devil as good. Besides, there have always been people who don't agree with God's manners. Even if the creators of the cartoon are Satanic, is that new?
Read Revelations 13:15-18
I've seen the verses. In order for you to be correct, every number issued to anybody must resolve to six hundred and sixty six somehow. People would also have to be unable to buy or sell anything, even akara or monkey tail, without that number. You know that is not the case.

|Literature / Re: Papina by Shugaryme(f): 10:55pm On Jan 31|
Zima yawned, then stretched, and her fingers wandered again to the tiny swollen spots on her arms. A quick scratch would give quick relief, until she had to scratch them again.
The sand flies had made short work of her little fleshy arms, yet she had not wanted to leave her unfinished foot caves and the miniature near-replica of the Abode she made with her playmates. The miniature Abode was the largest of the foot caves they had made, and yesterday like the many times before it, she had the privilege of trampling on it and retrieving from it stick figures of people hidden in it. Her skinny playmates liked to pretend they were generous, but she had not forgotten the fight that had birthed that tradition. She had won of course.
It was a game they had always played, though no one ever thought to ask what it meant. Once, her father had watched them with a startled expression mixed with recognition, but afterwards had walked away without scolding her. She was not in trouble then, Zima knew.
She examined her arms. The little lumps were not visible when Papina had dragged her away after she trampled on the large footcave. She had not gotten to rescue the people in it. The stick people would die inside if they weren't removed, she had protested, trying to sign with her free arm, but Papina had not paid any attention. Zima had gone to bed a sad little girl.
The early morning air was chilly, like it had rained at night. Zima wondered if the stick people could still be rescued from the wet sand. They would have been dead anyway.
The frustration was starting to rise again. Why was her sister so difficult to reason with? As if it was not bad enough that Papina couldn't speak or hear, she had a certain iron-will about her choices, and Zima had to suffer it the most.
Mama would have been kinder, she knew, although she had barely known her mother. Baba always talked about her, and each time he did, it was easy to see how much he had loved her and how flawless she had been. It was said that she died of snake bite before the healer could help. Baba had never married another wife, although every other spiked chief had at least two wives. He alone among the chiefs had seven spikes on his cap, he alone had no wife.
Zima stepped out of her little room, and after a glance at her sister's room just next to hers, made her way towards the end of the open space where they stored clean water in a covered receptacle dug into the ground.
The day had slowly started to peel off its robe of darkness. Papina would still be asleep. She was a bit withdrawn these days. Zamo was awake already. Zima never doubted her uncanny ability to tell what her twin brother was up to or how he felt. He knew the same about her.
After years of being driven away from the fireplace, today was the day she'd finally start to learn to cook and she had to get ready early. Ko Mari had told her the good news yesterday. The Ko was in charge of the kitchens and knew how to cook any meal known to humans. Zima could feel excitement course through her veins.
Baba had once had told her why the elderly woman was a 'ko' and not a 'ka' as married women were addressed - Ko Mari had never been married. Zima had not asked why, but as she washed her face and chewed her mouth stick, she wondered why Baba had not married her. She would have been a good mother, and Papina would not have to...
Her thoughts were pierced by a blood-curling scream. She could have sworn it sounded like...
It could not be!!
She raced towards Papina's room.

“Okay folks, it’s time to go.” Dr Stephan called out from the main room.
Dr Burke and Silas came out as well as Caleb and Efe who was looking much more human by now. The five of them looked like they were going to start a war. Armed with all sorts from automatic machine guns to pistols and grenades, they looked like a team from Rambo: First Blood. Despite himself, Efe was grinning from ear to ear and carrying a portable bazooka.
“Na the sh1t be dis.” He whispered to Caleb who grinned back.
“ Alright folks listen up.” Silas said. “Dr Burke is taking us straight to the, er, armoured tank at the secret base below the parking lot. Dr Burke and Dr Stephan are of highest priority, they must get to that vehicle alive. I’ll be leading the group, Caleb and Efe will cover our rear. That okay?”
Caleb cocked his shotgun. “You can count on us bro.”
Silas nodded. “Alright then, let’s move out.” And headed for the door.
“Wait.” Dr Burke said. “We don’t have to go through that way. There’s a secret passage behind the toilet.”
Silas watched incredulously as Dr Burke led the way back to the toilet and opened the armoury door once again. He started moving some of the remaining weapons aside and Caleb joined in to help him. Soon one of the walls was free and Dr Burke began to feel alongside its edges until he came to a part the felt hollow. He tapped on it three times and the whole wall slipped backwards and outwards like a door into a long dark tunnel. It was high enough to take an average man and wide enough to take only one
“You have some serious trust issues.” Silas said as he entered the tunnel. Dr Stephan followed then Dr Burke and Stephan and then big Efe.
“I can’t see my hand in front of my face.” Dr Stephan grumbled as the went along. “What happened to the lighting?”
“I don’t know, must have blown a fuse and no one to fix it during the confusion.' Dr Burke replied.
They reached the end of the tunnel without incident and then Silas hands came across an abrupt end. He felt the barricade and finally recognized what it was.
“It’s a sliding door!”
“Good work Silas.”Dr burke said. Now feel along the edge for a small button and press it, the door should slide open.'
Silas felt along the side of the door until he touched the button and then he pressed it. There was a gentle whooshing noise as the door slid back. Silas walked into more darkness.
“Where is this place?”
“Under the parking lot.” Dr Burke said, walking into the room and past him. “Wait, let me turn on the lights.”
He moved further into the dark and there was a click. Suddenly the whole place was filled with light. They were in an underground room with a moderately high ceiling, one powerful overhead lamp serving as a source of light. There were scattered papers and woodwork everywhere as if there had been a struggle. And at the far side of the room, an armoured vehicle was parked.
“Holy poo, man.” Caleb gasped. “I thought you were joking.”
“We kind of prepared for any eventuality.” Dr Stepahn chipped in with a grin. “Of course Burke knows more about the working of this place than I do.”
“Looks like someone was trying to get out of here in a hurry.” Silas murmured, kicking though the papers and other stuff.
“When the zombies infiltrated the building, there was a lot of commotion. I guess some folks tried getting out through this way but never made it.”
“Wait, doesn’t that mean we are supposed to see some zombies here, or at least dead bodies?” Caleb asked.
“Nah, the struggle you see here looks more like someone trying to gather his papers together. He probably was working in this room when the
alarm hit, packed as many of his works that he could and then hightailed it through the passage back to the panic room and out of the building.” Dr Stephan said.
“Still, just to be sure, come Efe.” Caleb ordered and he and Efe went to check all the nooks and crannies of the room. They moved cautiously around the Armoured car and then opened up some wardrobes and a toilet they found at the main entrance to the room. They saw nothing.
“Alright then. Let’s not dilly dally here.”Silas said. “Dr Burke, open the gate or whatever it is that needs opening let’s drive out of here. The rest of you in the tank.
Dr Burke nodded and went to a panel in the wall and started punching some keys. The panel immediately came to life with shining lights.
Dr Stephan and Silas climbed the armoured car to get to the hatch.
“The good thing about this car is that once we are in we can activate the safety catch and no one will be able to open it from the outside. We’ll be perfectly safe.”
He opened it and Silas helped lower him down. He turned to pick Caleb who was being helped up by Efe.
Silas turned back in alarm towards Dr stephan’s screams and looked down the hatch. There were three zombies down there! They had grabbed Dr Stephan who was trying valiantly to fight them off. Two of the zombies were dressed in military apparel and the last one was dressed as a lab scientist.
Silas ignored yells from Caleb and jumped down the hatch into the fray. He smashed the head of the zombie going for Dr Stephan’s neck with the butt of his gun and managed to pull him free from the other two who had already started chewing on his arms. The zombies snarled and tried attacking once more but Caleb jumped in too and shoved them away with his gun. He pointed it at them…
“Don’t shoot!” Dr Stephan gasped, bleeding terribly. “The bullet could ricochet in here and kill all of us!”
“Pull Stephan up!” Silas shouted to Efe who lowered his hand and grabbed Dr Stephan by the collar of his lab coat. Dr Stephan was hauled up like a rag doll even as the zombies launched another attack. They grabbed Caleb and one of them bit into his leg. Caleb screamed and fired his shotgun and the zombie’s head exploded. Efe on hearing Caleb’s scream jumped down the hatch and confronted the other zombies.
“Both of you get out!” He shouted and Caleb climbed out, helped by Silas. Efe pointed his machine gun at one of the approaching zombies.
“Payback!” He shouted and fired a hail of bullets.
“Efe, No!” Caleb shouted just as some of the bullets ricocheted off the walls of the armoured car and pierced his skull. Another bullet went into the armour car controls and smashed the motherboard to pieces. The two remaining zombies that had received the onslaught of the hail of bullets head-on, collapsed in a heap of dismembered flesh.
“Damn it Efe you !” Caleb cried as Efe collapsed to the floor dead.
Silas pulled him back “It’s over. I’m so sorry man.”
“What the hell happened!” Dr Burke shouted pointing his gun as they all came down. Dr Stephan collapsed in a heap on the ground, still bleeding and Caleb limped down, nursing his bitten leg.
“Are you bit?!” Dr Burke gasped. He brought out his backpack and rummaged through for the antidote and sprayed it on Caleb’s face. Caleb inhaled it and sat back.
“One of the bullets destroyed the controls. This tank isn’t going anywhere.” Silas said grimly.
“Stephan, do I need to spray you?” Dr Burke asked anxiously.
“No, I’m already immune. However I need to see a doctor for these wounds.” He smiled feebly. Silas saw his wound still bleeding.
“Why hasn’t the bleeding stopped?” He asked.
“What?” Stephan turned to him.
“The bleeding should have stopped by now.”
Stephan looked at his wounds. “Interesting. Its possible the antidote affects the clotting of blood somehow. Take a note of that Burke. You’ll need to work on that at the lab in case I bleed to death and don’t make it.”
“Don’t talk bullshit!” Dr Burke shouted. “Let’s get you out of here!”
“Let’s face the reality Burke, I’m already in shock. I’ve lost too much blood and I’m still losing it. Leave me here. Take the antidote and free the world!”

its hard sometimes to pin point problems, especially in case may be in swapping the battery one fuse was blown, you mentioned checking the fuses but you didnt say it clearly that was it after it failed to start or when the technician was checking to find the faulty from the way you discribe it it seems like the technician bridged the blown out fuse with wire and it started (my own conclusion)
like i always say find time to find your car's manual and read it to get the basic information you need to know as the driver to the car, if you have basic knowledge of your fuses am sure you would have asked him which fuse did s/he bridge or whatever he did
always ask what the mechanic is doing to your car it always helps you if the problem happens again
|Religion / Re: Ashtray by Ifeann(f): 8:01pm On Jan 31|
usermane:What u said was and i quote, " Majority of the Christians today are protestant, unorthodox. Even the orthodox Christians don't even cling top their traditions as their ancestors did or as orthodox Muslims cling to theirs."
No, majority of christains today are not protestants
Catholics are orthodox christains too, apparently u dont know this. . The other orthodox churches just retained the title "orthodox" in their name. . The eastern orthodox church, catholics, Orient , Greek orthdox Church, coptic etc what ever you choose to call them, all teach practically the same thing and share similar traditions. The protestants are a clear break away and practise sola scriptura. .
U are clearly mistaken. .. the wikipedia article clearly discredits your assertion
If The protestants topple the orthodox christains in population in the near future that is not our discussion, i really don't see what this had to do with anything . As long as they preach the teachings of Christ, stay true to doctrine AND profess that Jesus is the Son of God, who was crucified, died , buried and rose from the dead then they are christains just as the orthdox.
|Religion / Re: Small signs to show The End Is Coming by 5minsmadness: 7:58pm On Jan 31|
You are calculating accirding to your time, human time. I am talking God time here, He who sees a thousand of our years as one day. I dont expect the rapture to take place tomorrow, I'm not saying you should lock yourself in your room and hide under your bed, I am saying the end time is approaching and the signs spoken of in the Bible is slowly coming to pass. Recognise evil for what it is so that you will not be decieved.
I submit that you do not know of a time when people went to church solely for salvation/purity of spirit. The congregation have always been that way. Its not a recent development.Even among the apostles of Christ there was a traitor. Yes, not all who call out Lord Lord are true christians, this has been true since the beginning of christianity, however it is much worse now. Before we had true missionaries who were willing to go into the jungle to preach at no profit to themseves, christians who were willing to die for christ if it came to it. can you say the same of today? Can you truthfully say of all the 50 churches on your street even one preaches the undiluted word of God about salvation? Arent 90% if not almost all of them in for the profit? It has never been this bad sir.
Stop being a prude. Pourn is easily available is due to the internet, and the nature of the market for pornographic material. Pornography has been around for longer than you can imagine.And what is wrong in me being prude? If that is what it takes for people to laugh at me for being modest concerning sexuality sir then I daresay it is a light cross to carry for me to enter heaven!
It does sound laughable. I've seen adventure time, I find it weird and trippy, but not demonic. Billy and Mandy is innocent, though a bit mature. If your kid sees maggots coming out of the head of a dead rat/road kill etc, have they had a demonic experience?You can easily snap the picture of the dead rat with maggotscoming out of its head, enlarge it and frame it and put it in your kid's room as decoration since you see nothing wrong with it.
What you did here is rationalization. You are turning a blind eye away from porn and disgusting cartoons. You admit Adventure time is wierd and trippy but not demonic. Funny for an adult to say a cartoon is wierd no? You admit Bill and Mandy is a bit mature. hahaha. And you are an adult admitting this. What do you think your child's perspective will be?
The story teller can choose to write his story however he likes. What you fail to mention is that good tends to triumph over evil in these cartoons. Its not only a matter of who used to be the good guy or who was the bad guy. We all love a happy ending.Of course. So it wont matter in the film they are releasing in 2017 where the devil is actually the good guy and god is really the tyrant. The devil just wanted to do something different and god wouldnt let him. Poor devil. But as long as the film has a happy ending, no wahala.
