|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.

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|
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.

Censorship of Twitter refers to Internet censorship by governments that block access to Twitter
|Politics / Re: Twitter: We’re Ready To Negotiate With The Nigerian Government by BluntTheApostle: 7:56pm On Jun 11|
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.
|Politics / Re: Twitter: We’re Ready To Negotiate With The Nigerian Government by BluntTheApostle: 7:15pm On Jun 11|
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.
|Politics / Re: 73% Of Women In Kaduna LG Say It’s Okay For Men To Beat Them’ – Governor’s Chief by BluntTheApostle: 4:39pm On Jun 11|
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.

This man likes attention too much. He is now trying to make the best of TB Joshua's death to his own gain. He is always close friends with every famous person.
Imagine trying to use TB Joshua to exonerate himself of allegations of corruption. He should have said this when TB Joshua was alive.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: French President Macron Slapped During Crowd Walkabout (Video) by BluntTheApostle: 6:16pm On Jun 08|
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.

Just be careful with your recklessness because when it happens now, an innocent person may be among the casualties.
|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|
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.

That is a part of the job of pranking people.
Every prankster, even in developed countries, get this sort of beating at least once in their career.
There are always hostile places where such pranks are always perceived wrongly.
It is all good that he came out alive.
Next time, he should think up safer ideas for his pranks. Some ideas will get him lynched.
|Politics / Re: ISWAP Confirms Shekau’s Death, Says Its Fighters Were Following ISIS Orders by BluntTheApostle: 5:08pm On Jun 05|
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.
|Politics / Re: ISWAP Confirms Shekau’s Death, Says Its Fighters Were Following ISIS Orders by BluntTheApostle: 5:00pm On Jun 05|
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|
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?

|Sports / Re: Moment Sergio Aguero Gifted His N29m Range Rover EVQ To Man City's Kitman (Vid) by BluntTheApostle: 7:30pm On Jun 03|
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.
|Sports / Re: Moment Sergio Aguero Gifted His N29m Range Rover EVQ To Man City's Kitman (Vid) by BluntTheApostle: 7:25pm On Jun 03|
When you earn 250000 pounds per week, you can afford to be as generous as Kun.
But honestly, these footballers make so much money, it is like blood money.
How can someone be earning 250,000 pounds weekly?

The civilians are so disrespected in Nigeria.
Anything in uniform immediately feels that they are better than a civilian.
This is not the case in civilized countries.
Military era has long gone. Our military, especially, need to be reorientated on their roles and responsibilities to the populace in a democratic setting.

She plays extremely well for Barcelona, and is a prolific scorer there.
But in the jersey of Nigeria, she becomes barely prolific, especially at the last world cup and the African Women Cup of Nations.
