Forum Games / Re: Among These People, Who Would You Save And Your Reason(s)? by BluntTheApostle: 4:12pm On Jun 13
For those who find the question senseless, you need to understand that questions like this help provide insight into how humans would solve the problems of difficult choices. Do not be surprised if you find questions like this being asked by recruiters to test your ability to make difficult choices in life. Obviously, life is sometimes about making difficult choices.

My father made the difficult choice to leave us in the care of our mother when he was transferred to Kaduna while we were in Lagos. He had to choose between his family and his job.

Perhaps this example is not as difficult as the one in the OP, but there are even more difficult choices, and that one is the only one I have experienced.

In many homes, men are confronted with the difficult choice of picking wife over mother, and vice versa.

At the end, what this will teach us is that Men are easily disposable. Most people will save their Mother and will endure their father perish.
.
Most spouse/husband that will be saved will be spouse who have something to offer. While most men will save their wife..most wife wont save their husband if he has nothing to offer...Some wife will even allow their husband to perish just to inherit his properties, after mourning for a week.
.
You can see how men are so disposable and dispensable. If you truly understands this reality about life, marriage and love won't shack you as a young guy. Invest in yourself and your passion as a man, enjoy life. Put your self first cos most people will dispose of you if u are not useful to them, including your wife.
.
That's the Bitter truth

So much wisdom.
Religion / Re: I'm Seriously Sick & I'm Fasting. If I Use Drug, Is The Fasting Still Relevant? by BluntTheApostle: 9:54am On Jun 13
Igbojihadist:
Good morning Nairalanders.

Please I need advice on this. I was given fasting and praying which is supposed to end today but yesterday night i was not feeling alright then I visited a doctor who gave me some medications and placed me on drug, I'm suppose to use some this morning but I'm afraid I might spoil my fasting.

PLS I NEED ADVICE

Una happy sunday

God gave us a brain for a reason.

It didn't say we should throw away our brains before we can be right with Him.

If your health is failing, it is common sense to eat, and eat well.

You need to stay hydrated, and you need to boost your immune system to fight the infection.

Otherwise, you will DIE.

So, you need to eat well to stay hydrated, and to nourish your body so that it can heal itself.

Don't tempt the Lord thy God.

Suspend the fasting, and take care of your health.

I remembered when I was an active pastor of a church, a woman breastfeeding was doing dry fasting. The day I got to know, I almost gave her a slap. How can you be fasting when breastfeeding when you know that you have to eat well to produce enough milk for your baby to consume?

How can someone be so stupid? Being religious does not mean you have to throw away your brains. It is the reason why atheists think religious people (especially, Christians and Muslims) are stupid.

The Bible says wisdom is profitable to direct. Faith is good, but faith without wisdom will lead you to your grave.

It is not just about the medics.

When it is your time, it is your time.

There are players who have saved fellow players from dying on the pitch.

Togolese striker Francis Kone was not a medic when he saved the life of Bohemians goalkeeper Martin Berkovec. Berkovec had fainted after colliding with a teammate. Kone noticed on time, and rather than wait for the medics, Kone quickly prevented Berkovec from swallowing his tongue.

OMG !! you don't even know censor/gag and ban don't mean the same , your mumuness deserve as an award, you don't know censorship of twitter is synonymous to scrambling our freedom of expression.
No country has censored or gagged twitter, the only thing that can happen is ban, it quiet preposterous that buhari supporters now cite russsia, france buh there tryanny master is alway calling on Uk& US for support & loans. buh when is comes to doing the right thing we remember we are a sovereign nation.
Twitter is only luring naija govt, to expose the dictator we call a leader ... twitter its a global world, they can't change there rules becos of one developing nation.

Censorship of Twitter refers to Internet censorship by governments that block access to Twitter

I am not surprise buh i thot shame would keep you away, ....
when we all sign up to twitter we agreed to terms & condition, which means twitter have the right to regulate our actions how they deem fit. Did twitter act within its right, fvcking yes.
Recently a young man slapped marcon france president, guess what court decided the case not macron and the guy was sentenced to four month in prison. what is a deleted tweet compared to a slap on live tv ... if it were to be buhari that guy would av been dead by now or 1km to hell's gate.
My point is buhari has no constitutional right to ban twitter regardless of how he feels or how you feel. ... if buhari could go on foreign tv to insult nigerians nd feel he is only expressing himself why should nigerians feel insulted a foreign media insulted there president. just yesteday on arisetv he said the reason for high unemployment is because the youths are misbehaving. is that a compliment.
You said something that i like about pastor chris, he did not like twitter action he simply left, why did he not command is members to deactivate from twitter or threaten to lay curse on any member stil using twitter, doesnt make sense, trump also moved to creat is own platform. Buhari can borrow money for africa buh he can't just borrow sense to rule nigeria. if twitter is nof registered or paying tax in US why would it wana do so in nigeria.

Any government has the right to censor Twitter, or any social media platforms for that matter.

Nigeria will not be the first to ban Twitter. Russia threatened to ban Twitter some time back, and Twitter deleted the contents causing the fracas.

They must comply with all our directives. We are not a small country.

You just have to give it to all these retired generals. They know how to put insolent people in their place.

Thumbs up to my beloved president!!

Twitter not only insulted our president, they insulted all Nigerians.

We Nigerians need to begin to understand our worth as Africa's largest market for many prominent foreign goods and investments.

The foreigners make it seem like we need them far more than they need us. But the reality is different. We all need one another. So, no one is really the ultimate boss. But these arrogant foreigners don't want to acknowledge that fact that we are all the same, and need one another.

I have heard that some women enjoy getting beaten.

Like a lady I once dated. There was a day she practically begged me to hit her.

First of all, to hit someone, there has to be some level of anger. But we were both in a good mood that day.

That was the last time I saw her because I did not want to be involved with someone with such a fetish.

I am not a violent person. I cannot pretend to be.

Mbataku96:

You think Macron was walking freely. When presidents do crowd walkabout, there are always security personnel everywhere, even in the crowd.

And even if Buhari walks in the Southeast, no one will dare to stab him. Ordinary soldier gets killed and you will see reprisals from his colleagues. Now imagine stabbing a whole president, that will be the end of that region. Not even the UN will be able to save the Southeast.

Education / Re: What Happened When I Told My Class Mates That I'm On A 2:1 Not A 1:1 by BluntTheApostle: 10:05am On Jun 08
KlausMichaelson:
This is our final semester here in school. Today, I was in a deep conversation with a group of my course mates, and we were talking about our performance and grades so far in school. Being their best student they were shocked to hear me tell them that I'm actually on a 2:1 and not a 1:1 and specifically within the range of 4.25 to 4.3 cgpa. Their Shock also shocked me lols grin. Like what were they thinking? And somehow they were disappointed too.

As for me I don't care about their thoughts or opinion about the subject matter, I'm not from a rich home perse, so most at times I spend my time on things that will put money in my pocket rather than books to survive here in school. I even barely read my books, but I'm a very fast learner when I grab a book.

They couldn't fathom why I couldn't make a first class even when they considered me a genius. Anyways, that doesn't matter, maybe some other time in the nearest future things like this won't matter any more. I simply wish myself the very best in life. Graduating top of my class is not an easy feat and I thank God for that. If any of those 1:1 students embark on 10% of
the thingss I do in campus to survy, they will find it difficult making a 2:1 not to talk of a 1:1.
So I'm really proud of myself. Glory be to God. Amen!

One thing you need to learn is how to stop making excuses for yourself when you come short of expectations in life.

There are people who went through hell in school, and still finished with a first class degree.

I finished with a first class degree, but I was not the best graduating student. The best graduating student of my set was over 30 years old. He was the one sponsoring his own education. He would teach WAEC lessons, go to Moniya to do okada, depending on his shift as a security guard. He also had younger ones whom he was sponsoring. They all became orphans very early in life and he has been a provider since he was a teenager.

So, stop making excuses for yourself. Rather, accept your fate.

First class degree is good. It gives one bragging rights. But it doesn't give information on who is a genius or not. It doesn't say that someone has more potential than another.

A person with a third class degree may have better problem-solving skill than someone with a first class degree. This means that some people with third class degrees are more employable than some people with first class degrees.

Politics / Re: ISWAP Confirms Shekau’s Death, Says Its Fighters Were Following ISIS Orders by BluntTheApostle: 5:08pm On Jun 05
floss:



Don't be deceived, two persons you should never fight against once they mean business are
1. God
2. Government of any nation.

Forget all these politics that's been played with Boko Haram, it's because the government have something to benefit, if not...Boko Haram will not take more than 7hours for Nigeria military to send them packing. You saw how it took Buhari less than 48hours to ban Twitter because the government meant business, so that's how it is with fighting terrorism.

It is actually not easy to defeat Islamic terrorist groups.

In fact, it is almost impossible.

Look at how much the United States has spent on her war against terrorism since the aftermath of the September 11 suicide attacks, and yet Al-Queda is still in existence.

Islamic terrorist groups are the most difficult to defeat because they always make their terrorism look like a jihad, so they are never short of fighters.

Another thing is that when there is a gap in governance, terrorism will thrive.

ISWAP poses more threat than Boko Haram because ISWAP is closing gaps and offering services that government should be doing. ISWAP is digging wells, providing food, and even protecting herdsmen against cattle rustlers. The government failed to do this that is why the locals will trust ISWAP more than the FG.

Tell me, how can the FG attack ISWAP without hitting civilians?

There is hardly a military in the world that is trained in non-conventional warfare. That is the major reason why Islamic terrorist groups like Al-Queda, ISIL, and the others are still in existence despite the huge amount spent on antiterrorism every year.

ensamy:
ISWAP faction started in 2016 after election of APC in 2015, I think the people that set up Boko haram against Jonathan wanted to end it after Jonathan was defeated but Shakau refused then they called this disobedience then actually set up a parallel Islamic group to end Boko haram. Why not 2012,13 or 14 during Jonathan's administration. grin grin Jonathan said it , that they were in his Government.

Nothing of the sort.

Boko Haram aligned with ISIL, and became ISWAP.

The leader of ISIL did not like how Shekau was killing Muslims, so he removed Shekau as leader of ISWAP, and appointed Mohammed Yusuf's son as the new leader of ISWAP.

Shekau did not like this, so he broke his relationship with ISIL, and went to form JAS.

Some of his loyalists followed him, but many others stayed in ISWAP.

Crime / Re: Loan App Wants To Ruin My Career by BluntTheApostle: 4:10pm On Jun 04
Restroom:
I borrowed money from LCASH recently. I defaulted and they started threatening me of sending messages to my contacts.

I was scared, but came up with a solution.

I went to Google contact and deleted over 1000 names from my online Google account. As I did this, I deleted almost all my whatsapp contact. And as I did, I kept syncing to make sure all the contacts they want to send the messages to are eliminated from my android contacts.

As I speak, I have less than 30 names in my contact and even less on whatsapp. So, even that I. Owe some of them, they can't send SMS to contacts that don't exist in your phone contacts.

Once you delete from Google contacts and from whatsapp, just sync and all the contacts will vanish even from their own system.

I quietly did this and they have stopped threatening me about sending messages to my contact becuase it is pointless doing so when there are jest 22 names in my contact list. All the people that know me, I have deleted their numbers to avoid that kind of embarrassment.

So, lf you can get a new Sim, move your contacts to it or write them out in a diary. Get any app that can store your contact and wipe off your contact list from Google contact and then from whatsapp.

I have fixed them as far as threatening me with text messages are concerned.
I don't have any important contact I can't get from around.


It is because of people like you that these lenders threaten defaulters.

Don't you care that by refusing to repay your loan, you are denying someone else an opportunity to borrow money.

You are also making the lenders run at a loss. These lenders have employees who have to be paid. Imagine that many borrowers are like you, won't you run the lending company to the ground?

Politicians earn alot, why aren't they generous?

Even your so called billionaires would rather steal more from the masses than give, why?

As per basic salaries, politicians don't earn that much. That is why many of them dabble into shady deals.

And there are politicians who are or were generous. For example, MKO Abiola.
