Sports / Re: Is Messi Getting More Than He Deserves? by Ehiscotch(m): 8:01pm On Dec 03, 2019
I must state that I am very objective. Messi is the most talented player on earth but performances vary from talent. Which is why recognitions aren't talent based (except explicitly stated). Messi's awards have left more players disgruntled than Ronaldo's. A few times Messi has won there have been raised eyebrows: Iniesta, Ribery and now VVD.
What I'm saying is that people feel Messi is the best player (talent-wise) and vote for him that year rather than him being the most outstanding player in the year.
He outscores everybody and does it with finesse but ends up coming short in terms of results and trophies and still wins.

I am just tired of seeing something so undefined.

See how you cleverly left out Ribery's 2013 incident.
Your hypocrisy stinks
Bro, you just shot yourself in the foot. The 2013 situation you are citing even gives further credence to my arguement. Ronaldo won because Madrid were the current holders of the UCL. Ribery's case was another robbery.

Just to be clear, the Cr7-Modric situation is about the 2018 award ceremonies.
South and North Americans just need any excuse to not vote Cr7.
The Europeans have adopted Messi so he would easily split votes against one of their.

My bane is that there has been seasons were Cr7 outperformed Messi individually but Messi won because of FCB's success.

So my theory remains undisputed.

Sports / Is Messi Getting More Than He Deserves? by Ehiscotch(m): 8:04am On Dec 03, 2019
I would first of all like to congratulate Lionel Messi. But I must say that there has to be established Criteria for footballing award ceremonies other than a bunch of prejudiced journalists and club captains voting.

I think they have to be clear as to whether individual acheivements should supercede contributions to a teams overall success.
I might not have the stats but Ronaldo had a better individual stat to Modric and contributed more to the success of Madrid but the World Cup was an excuse even if Ronaldo didn't do badly either. I wonder why WC performance was overlooked in 2010 when Xavi, Iniesta, Wesley Sneijder could have won it.
I could go on and on. Barcelona won a scarcely competitive La Liga trophy while Liverpool won the UCL and would have won the EPL if they weren't competing with Pep's City. Netherland even performed better than Argentina in 2019.
FIFA has to be clear and has to educate its voting populace.
In conclusion, I think Messi is largely profiting from the block votes from S.AME

Health / Re: Is Diarrhea After Treating Typhoid Normal? by Ehiscotch(m): 1:47am On Jul 06, 2019
Oh, and I usually felt cold and restless at nights during treatment. The cold became mild after I completed three days of injections, but the diarrhea and the nausea which I thought (and I'm still undecided about) were complications from wrong dosage and wrong treatment or delayed treatment of typhoid. I have taken drugs for the diarrhea and mild cold tonight but I still need to ascertain if it is normal when treating typhoid and if the cold was as a result of an infection because the severity declines as the day goes. PS: I know some of you might be disgusted at my ignorance but my decisions were based on my current state. What this experience has taught me, man. I used to think I was unafraid of death and would usually focus on praying for my pillars (my parents). And yeah I was depressed and tired at certain stages. In all, I give God Glory and look forward to getting better. Cc Lalasticlala.
Health / Re: Is Diarrhea After Treating Typhoid Normal? by Ehiscotch(m): 1:31am On Jul 06, 2019
my sister's friend informed me that her mother, who is a nurse in another LGA, would be coming home for the weekend. So I foolishly boycotted going for typhoid injection which my elder brother advised just to wait to be properly treated for malaria. You might be puzzled at my refusing to go for test, which is a simple, life-saving practice most Nigerians are guilty of not doing. Uh, you know the economy isn't particularly favoring and I felt 'hey, it's malaria, the money spent on a test would be used for treatment or feeding'. Try To Never Think This Way. Your guess is as good as mine: it didn't work out. And an error in communication, which was as a result of me not 'hearing' our local dialect led me to taking the wrong dosage of drugs with the three injections I was given. During which I suffered from constant sneezing, I eventually went for the typhoid injections and got seriously better after three days except for the now returned diarrhea and nausea.
Health / Is Diarrhea After Treating Typhoid Normal? by Ehiscotch(m): 1:11am On Jul 06, 2019
Hy, Doctors in the house. They say ' a problem shared is half-solved'. I am sharing this bearing in mind that I obviously should go for a test -- I just want to get your opinions first. Here goes. I left work early a couple of Tuesdays ago after experiencing body aches. viola! I came to a what seems now to be a rather ill-thought conclusion that it would be malaria. My hypothesis was due to the 'heavy' presence of mosquitoes and it usually was malaria -- or typhoid. well, after three days of treatment with Camosunate ( a drug with serious lethargy as its side effect) I was better -- save lethargy and diarrhea. To cut the story short, the fever returned a few days after although the diarrhea ceased when I took a drug for it .

Edo girls are the most predominant set of sex slaves in the world.

It is so bad that these girls are tricked into slavery by their fellow community people -- people who they trust.

PS: But Op, those girls aren't really covered up, are those really pictures of them in Russia?

Politics shouldn't be mixed with Security of human life. The government is in their rights to beef up security personnel in these states that experienced violence with regards to the happenings in Feb 23.

I am not even bothered because the APC can't win in the SS (not yet). My concern is just for a more peaceful election.

Atiku shouldn't relent in taking this case to court. He should continue to strive until he gets to the Supreme Court and realises that the Nigerian electoral laws are in shambles and in need of reforms.

His spy body cameras and all what not can barely do anything. He needs substantial and overwhelming evidence that would counter the 4 million margin.

The Lion is innocent. It's only its nature, as it sees humans as food (meat).

Runtown really needs to listen and not being raising a lion to flaunt on IG; it is not an inanimate car, shoe, Patek Philip or Gucci. This one would eat you when it has a real hunger for flesh and not milk.

Crime / Re: Seven Killed As Gunmen In Military Uniform Invade Benue Community by Ehiscotch(m): 2:01pm On Mar 04, 2019
Some of the killings you see in the newspapers or on social media are as a result of inter or intra-communal clashes that have been going on for decades.

Not every killing is by herdsmen but by cultist or other political thugs. The easiest way to resolving these issue is by community policing and by its leaders and its people reaching a compromise.

The government can't send soldiers to every point in these areas.

Sometimes your security is in your own hands.

No escape from what exactly? What the high oil price has been cushioning for 15 years?

Wake up, this is the reality of your economy. So many countries have pulled out of this by steadily and consciously making concerted efforts in areas of the infrastructure, agriculture.

We have to be a productive country and not an oil dependent one.
