Travel / Re: Why Are Salaries In Europe So Low? by 8BitGee(m): 5:24am On Dec 05, 2022
An engineer working 80 hours a week for a multinational company makes about 2500€ net a month

80 hours a week shocked and this "Engineer" works for a "multinational company" you say? grin

€2.5k net is loads for someone just starting life or in a low-skilled job. That is over €35k per year. Is N1.8m per month after tax chicken change for a mere developer in Naija now?

Frankly, a lot of people in the UK and other good parts of Western Europe don't come here to talk about wages and wealth because it's against social etiquette.

I don't know anyone in tech working 80 hours, it is 40 hours and the freshest developer I know earns €30k per year in a small company. FYI, this is just below the limit for visa sponsorship here. Anyone you know who's on a sponsored visa is not earning less than €32k as per the visa requirement. The minimum a senior developer earns is €60k.

Here, bus drivers earn about €38k.

On balance, Europe is not America, you earn more salary in America, however, you also don't have the kind of perks and social security people in Europe have. If you prefer the American system better, move there so.

Politics / Re: Seun Osewa To Spend More Time On Nairaland As Obi's Supporters Take Over Twitter by 8BitGee(m): 2:23pm On Sep 21, 2022
I stopped following Seun on Twitter. He is someone I admired from/for Nairaland but I realised he gets some kicks from winding people up and pretending as if he's innocent.

I am a Yoruba like you and your behaviour on Twitter is abhorrent, Seun.

Jfv are processed in Abuja and not Dublin office. I have an Indian that joined his spouse in a month this year. What about that? Don't use the list from Dublin office to judge.

You're correct. There's incontrovertible evidence that it is processed in Abuja.

Congratulations!!! Yes you will be able to hold your son. I can imagine your joy.

On flights, i think Turkish air is still the cheapest….. flights have been reduced to Nigeria, and those still flying there have jerked up prices x3… because of fuel. I even found out one of the airline have to refuel from Ghana….its that bad.


Thank you.

What's worse is that I had to ring KLM to ask them that I wanted to pay in Naira via transfer because they won't let you pay in Naira with your Naira card. Naira is not on the list of currencies.

Got KLM at ~$2800 for an adult and infant shocked

Turkish is even more expensive.

Phones / Re: What I Think About Fast Charging by 8BitGee(m): 12:09pm On Aug 18, 2022
Battery charging must typically exceed 10 watts in wattage in order to be termed fast.

For modern devices, fast charging won't harm your smartphone much unless there are technical problems with either the phone's battery or the charging cable or adapter. The problem for batteries really is the heat generated whether with fast chargers or normal chargers.

Importantly, your phone is not charging at full capacity all the time, even when you're using a fast charger as the charging process is divided into two:

1. Rapid charge: When the battery is still at a lesser capacity, the first phase is meant to top it off quickly.

2. Slow charge: The second stage slows down the charging process to reduce heat, which lessens the strain on the smartphone's battery life.

See the charge rate chart below. Notice how it flat-lines at the top.

What Buhari and APC cannot destroy has not been made. It is innocent Nigerians suffering the consequences of their incompetence. Although the flight time and layover is considerably longer, a lot of Nigerians fly Emirates because it's cheaper than most European carriers.

Tinubu is a very insensitive and extremely Machiavellian person. This is evident in his dealings with political friends and opponents. Some end up mysteriously assassinated, others are openly threatened with same, cue lagoon comment by Akiolu and the attacks on Igbo dominated areas during the last elections.

I'm a Yoruba and a Muslim, only fools will fall for their lies about competence. You don't speak of competence when offering admissions to schools and for civil service appointments, but now you can? Are there no competent Christians in the North? It is plain bigotry. They will burn the country down if there was ever a Christian only ticket. In fact, the North will rather vote for a cow than vote a Christian.

Surely, Nigeria deserves better than to have this kind of a person and an admitted drug lord who forfeited assets to the US Federal Government as her President.

Only an enemy of Nigeria will vote for Tinubu. He is bad news to Nigeria. Nonetheless, his supporters have a right to do so. This is what democracy is all about.

justwise:



The UK or Britain is what is regarded as a country internationally and that is what is written on their passport and not England. Nothing like English passport, is either British or UK passport.

Only Scottish or Wales see themselves as Scottish or welsh and that is the passport they carry but English people are refer to as either British citizens or UK citizens, in any form you complete you never see England as an option for nationality

I would have sworn you lived in England.

Any, these things are often the subject of great confusion - nationality, race and ethnicity.

England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - countries making up the UK.

Great Britain - an island covering the countries of England, Scotland and Wales.

UK (formally known as "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland", also loosely called Britain) - a country including the devolved countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. That is, Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

British - Demonym of the people with British citizenship, that is, White-British, Black-British, etc. It is also the ethnicity (race) of the native people of the UK. English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh are other ethnic nationalities.

Devolution - The transfer of some powers and the delegation of some functions from a central government to local government. So, yes, you have a British passport as a British citizen from the country of Scotland. There's nothing like a Scottish or Welsh passport. As a result of devolution, these countries competes in sporting competitions as themselves. There's no UK national team.

According to a BBC survey: "... Its findings suggest 80% of the residents of England identify strongly as English. But it also finds a similar proportion, 82%, strongly identify as British..."

Sukkot is either Nigeria born and left to England or English born of Nigerian ancestry. He is a recent old timer known for various conspiracy theories. I suspect he is also Shymexx.

He is right about the England, Britain, UK classification. It is not uncommon for a lot of people from England to say that they're 'English' or are 'British' especially outside of the UK.
The national identity question was #14 on the last census.

Nationality: British/(English, Welsh, Scottish or Irish).

British are citizens of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Note however that NI is not in Great Britain.
