I told a small boy this of recent and the boy went ahead to keep seven stones and goat dung in preparation to his tooth that's shaking. We got to discover this when the room was smelling... But boy still did it when his tooth removed.

I don't know how this is "true" though....

Some uncles and sisters with mamas self told me if I whistle with my mouth in a hot afternoon, snake will come out and bite me .....

I was 7yrs old DAT time, but since I have been whistling (morning, afternoon, night, even midnight) not even a bush snake has come out to attack me undecided

They are many more they told us just to dey make us afraid embarassed those days .......share if you have one.

between brick layer and a senator who works harder?

Hard work doesn't mean being physically active BUT Being mentally articulate and active.

The Senator works hard by thinking out strategies and giving orders While the Bricklayer works hard by taking orders and physically running erands for the senator.

In all, HARD WORK PAYS, it all depends on how hard you choose to work

How can you call your elders liars? The words of our fathers are words of wisdom a wise man hears them and become wiser.
Those stories where made up to keep you from certain bad behaviors. For example the one about whistles in the afternoon is just to keep your noise down to allow them relax.
