|Politics / Re: FG Will Replace Fuel Subsidy With ₦5,000 Transport Grant For 40m Nigerians by egopersonified(f): 4:52pm On Nov 23|
If not for corruption, every country in the world subsidizes some sectors of their economy. Even almighty US wey Nigerians dey see as heaven on earth subsidizes their farm produce.
That said, 2021 inflation will be child's play compared to 2022.

This sit at home will be felt better if only igbos all over the country shut their businesses. To me, this south east sit at home is only hurting the igbos. Even if I am an Igbo man, I can't invest in the east or I will start diversifying from the east when I know my business will be shut at least 4 working days every month.

I really don't know how to argue. You are the only mention I am replying to. Even if you don't agree with me, try to understand where I am coming from.
Just think about it. Where did women get this 'my money is mine, his money is ours' mentality from. It is from the same ideology that the man is the provider and bread winner, so even if she has more money, the man should pay for everything.
What if we start teaching our girls that no matter how rich her husband is, she has to contribute a major part of her earnings to the family upkeep, instead of saving it up for herself.
I also had this my money mentality for years, till I realized if I don't start spending majority of my salary, then they will start driving my kids out of class for not paying school fees. We had to sit down and make a plan around my salary since it was a steady income while his was irregular.
Read what another nairalander (jumpandpas) wrote below
One thing I have achieved is making sure all my children chose me ahead of their mum. I started by feeding them, bathing them and buying them good things whenever I am Coming home everyday. I created an irresistible friendship environment with them and it paid off. Today all my children don't even care if their mum is around.
Do you know that after marriage I realized why my father always tell me DON'T EVER BEAT YOUR WIFE".
Your kids don't know who brings the money, all they know is mummy spent 2 hours sweating in the kitchen, she took me to school every day and bought me biscuits. She helps me with homework. She treats my injuries. She prays for me in the middle of the night. They don't see what their father does. Most of us even knowing fully well our mothers were not earning a Kobo or earning very little never had personal experiences with our fathers. All we know about him was he goes to work, then comes home to shout at us and eat his food. I had friends that were brothers that used to tell each other your father is calling you.
No one is saying our boys should be softies. But we need to teach both genders same responsibilities as much as is possible.

This is the effect of generations of family life. When we start solving this problem from the cause, there will never be answers.
We encourage our girls to focus on being wife materials and mothers. We teach them how to cook and take care of the home while the brothers are outside playing ball, making connections and going places. He is taught that a man's place is outside the home. To bring home the bacon. To take care of his family and be the bread winner. Till we start to teach our kids differently, we will still get this same results till eternity.
We teach our boys to not cry, don't show emotion and he bottles it up till he has a heart attack while a woman will cry from morning till night, shout out all her frustrations and be relieved from that burden.
We tell our men to take care of this girlfriend so another man doesn't snatch her. So he does two jobs and a side hustle just to 'maintain' her.
Why can't we teach our kids that both parties should be equal contributors to the family purse? Why can't the first person home make dinner? Why can't the man take the kids to the hospital while the woman goes to sell her tomatoes? Why do we have men coming on nairaland to tell us 'I take care of all the responsibilities in the home and all she does is to fill gas and she is complaining when I boil ordinary water to bath'?
Till we begin to train ourselves as one and the same unit, men will keep dieing young and women will keep enjoying the fruits of both their labours.

I don't know why the first thing people say is trash blocked our drainages. Please look at the pictures properly, if it was trash, some will be floating in the water. There is simply no drainage here. Sometimes it is sand that fills these drainages. Boundary road, Benin drainage is currently being dug. They have being moving truck loads of sand from there since morning. I didn't see a single piece of trash when I passed there. Some drainages all over the world also overflow during or after heavy rainfalls, those flood subside within hours or days.

My 14 year old son is presently learning to code with his tablet and my laptop. He even found a tech hub close to us he says he wants to go to. He has being learning how to draw and paint for two years now and his boss sells his paintings now for 5k. I am at a cross road on what he should do this holiday. The painting was just a means to do something during the holidays because I hate holiday lessons, but he chose the coding himself. Any advice?

|Celebrities / Re: Lil Uzi Vert Removes $24 Million Pink Diamond From His Forehead by egopersonified(f): 7:37pm On Jun 03|
Hope you all read where it said he paid it in four years? Hope you see yeyebrities don't necessarily have the money they fluent? Keep imitating people una hear?
US rapper, Lil Uzi Vert has decided to ditch the pink diamond encrusted on his forehead.
The Philadelphia rapper made headlines when he implanted the 11-carat $24 million gem on his forehead, but it appears that he’s removed it.
In recent photos and video the rapper has been seen without the $24 million rock.
In one Instagram Story posted by Uzi’s girlfriend JT, the couple is seen dancing and kissing, but the diamond is nowhere in view.
Uzi also shared photos of himself in a City Girls “Twerkulator” T-shirt and again his forehead diamond is missing.
Back in February, Lil Uzi Vert made headlines when he implanted the gem in the middle of his forehead, boasting about its magical powers. “I can’t believe I got this Stone either moving super different now,” he tweeted.
But the stone engraving came with its share of pain when he revealed the bloody injury he suffered as a result of trying to affix it to his skull.
“If I don’t get it took out the right way I could die,” said Uzi.
He purchased the diamond from jewelry designer Elliot Eliantte.
It was so expensive that it took four years to pay off. According to Uzi, it cost more than his home and all his cars combined including his Bugatti.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now,” he tweeted.
“This one Stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. A lot of M’s in my face.”
