Canada is good. It's summer, we're trying to enjoy the few days of warm weather.

Truck drivers make good money in Canada.

Who do you guys want? An object or a voiceless slave? You see a beautiful, intelligent and hardworking girl who makes it a point of duty to be honest, and you're still criticising. Maybe the ladies will have to leave this planet for you guys.

No one deserves to be killed.
But it's funny how men will always justify immorality and turn around to ask why women of nowadays are into oloshoism. Lol. Hypocrisy at its finest.
|Crime / Re: Usifo Ataga's Wife And Her Boyfriend Become Prime Suspects In His Death by etrange: 2:15pm On Jun 26|
You guys will always find a way to put it on the female spouse. A man cheats, a woman suffers it. How can someone stay at home and cook up such a story as if he lived with them and still be bold enough to put it online regardless of who gets hurt? Why are some of you so heartless?
You like the story? How? You like it as a fictional tale or you wish that's what really happened cause you'd want the wife to be held responsible? In what sense do you like the story?
This is someone's real life and not some fictional stories created for entertainment to be liked or disliked by the audience. The writer is a heartless person.

If it was a lady, everyone would be cursing and lamenting how oloshoism is bad. But it's a guy, and it doesn't matter if he swindles others to get rich.

Why is everyone focusing on the girl? You think you'd achieve any goal turning blind eyes on the boy child while criticising and policing the girl child? You guys are just shying away from the reality. Provided you keep treating boys with kid gloves, it's useless expecting anything to change.

|Romance / Re: Naija Music: Why No Hit Songs In 2021?? by etrange: 11:05pm On Jun 20|
I see. Well... you love the song, and it's okey to call it a hit cause a lot of people liked and played it. But even poorly done works have ended up being hits in the past too, and some better works never made it. That's because music is an art, there's really no standard for measuring what will be a hit. Beats, lyrics, location, timing, the artist's reputation, the audience (demography, etc), all intertwine with luck to make it very unpredictable. That's why you sometimes wonder why people are mad over a certain song you personally find unappealing.
If there's no song people have liked in common this year like those hit songs you mentioned, then it's okay to wonder why the year is musically dry. But if those ones you call "average" are widely accepted, played and enjoyed by fans all over the country, then they are just as hit, and only average based on your own standard. The point here being that being a hit is not really about the highly subjective quality of the song but more about how well it's accepted by the audience; the part I think is unpredictable.
|Romance / Re: Naija Music: Why No Hit Songs In 2021?? by etrange: 9:57pm On Jun 20|
It's possible the musicians are still recovering from the pandemic effects or the fans are not in the mood to make hit songs at this moment in time seeing the state of the country. I said fans caused songs don't just become hit cause the beatings and lyrics are cool, but also because they drop at a time when people are receptive of them. All these have to fall into place for a track to be successful.
Meanwhile, what you call "average" is completely based on your own taste/preference. If those songs are hit, they're hit.
|Crime / Re: How Crossing The Highway Nearly Crossed My Interview by etrange: 2:42pm On Jun 18|
I wasn't there and might not have the facts, but I am 99% sure he didn't call anybody. This same format is what they use on everyone. They'd tell you the van in coming, they'd pretend to make a phone call and then start looking in the direction of oncoming vehicles 'wondering' the cause of the delay. All these are just to pressure the 'victim' into settlement.
I was once caught at CMS years ago, and they did the same thing to me. I mistakenly mentioned the name of the company I was going to and almost told them I didn't know about the bridge cause I drove most of the time (this would have nailed me), but then I stopped halfway when one of them suddenly became excited and went "oh you work there? You know someone that works there? Call them to send you something nah". I quickly changed the story by telling them I was a first year student of NOUN looking for a petty job and that I was only decently dressed cause I was going for an interview (luckily, it was the early days of my career life so I was still looking very 'studentish'). That didn't exactly get me thier pity (it actually made them feel more in control) but it made them lose any hope of cashing out big time. They eventually took what they thought was my transport and asked me to find my way.
I was wrong to have crossed the road. I hated the fact that I wasn't on my right and had to tolerate a lot of nonsense, and even went on to smile when one called me "brother" after the whole ordeal!

|Sports / Re: Uefa Warns Teams Could Be Fined If They Move Drinks At News Conferences by etrange: 9:49pm On Jun 17|
The drinks are actually the ideal thing to put on the table. We all know it's a way of practically showcasing thier products as no one drinks it. The company paid a lot for it to be there and I wouldn't be surprised if they ask the organisers for a refund. It's a B2B arrangement, and the footballers are not in any position to interfere regardless of their preferences, affiliations or grudges. They can decide not to show up for the session, but once they're there, they're in no position to cut off the ads section of the host. Advertisement is a major income stream that sustains the game.

Wow.... see the way he described his fellow citizens cause of gender dichotomy. Lol. I see Nigerian men are models of how a man should be. My advice to you is not to expect to be a typical Nigerian man with a white woman cause that has never worked. As for country, most western anglophone countries are alike though I personally prefer Canada due the "anybody can be anything" mentality there.

Why not let the ladies answer for themselves? Why can't you guys just give ladies a little breathing space. Men were given the room to tackle a similar question onhere and nobody flooded the thread with gender related bickering. Even the ladies that commented on that thread gracefully submitted thier opinions. Now, it's the ladies' turn to answer and you guys can't wait to turn it into another gender bashing thread.
For what it's worth, the sacrifices a man makes for his children doesn't make him a good husband to his wife.

He was so shocked he didn't realise the expression had more than three words. He even came to Nairaland to share with us. How adorable. There's always a first time for everything.

As you are distributing, also know that anybody can just type anything. There's no part of that write-up that has references, dates, locations, names, or other elements one can use to verify the content. Someone who is - going by his comments - going through a traumatic moment caused by certain false prophets who defrauded him in the past has decided to retaliate by cooking up ridiculously unsubstantiated claims against pastors, and you just want to distribute without questions.
The write-up is even funny and poorly written. Even when we want to accuse people, we should do it with some intelligence. The guy simply wrote down every single vice he could think of. You think the dead pastor did all that, and only that guys knows about it?
