shango:

thats how much we suck. We need other countries launching sattelites for us. We used to build our roads now the Chinese are doing it. What next. We will be contracting out our government jobs to the chinese? They will be supplying us water and telephone service and repairing our military vechiles?

News like this makes me ashamed to be from Nigeria.

The UK doesn't launch its own satellites. it uses the European Space Agency. I believe, in western Europe, only France and Germany launch their own satellites

you can chat girls up anywhere busstops, tube, tube stations, opticians, snooker hall etc. just don't appear brash and use either an english accent or none. Some girls don't understand  Africans (attitude and accent) until they get to know you.

'Nice top you've got on' or 'what beautiful eyes you have' is a start (with a smile). Always works for me.

Jokes Etc / The Best Blonde Joke Of The Year - So Far by New(m): 10:22am On Mar 29, 2007
A man was in his front yard mowing grass when his attractive
blond female neighbor came out of the house and went straight to the
mailbox.
She opened it then slammed it shut & stormed back in the house. A
little later she came out of her house again went to the mailbox and
again, opened it, slammed it shut again. Angrily, back into the house
she went.

As the man was getting ready to edge the lawn, here she came out
again, marched to the mail box, opened it and then slammed it closed
harder than ever.

Puzzled by her actions the man asked her, "Is something wrong?"

To which she replied, "There certainly is!"


(Are you ready? This is a beauty, )

What year is your BMW and its model. I believe this (overheating) is a known problem in pre 98 3 models and pre 96 5 models. The only thing you can do is to find a specialist and get it fixed.
Education / Re: Who Are The Most Educated Nigerians? by New(m): 4:00pm On Jan 19, 2007
According to the CIA fact book,  age 15 and over that can read and write is 68% of the total population
male: 75.7%
female: 60.6% (2003 est.)

couldn't find any geographical data but talking with expats that have worked all over Nigeria, Igbos are the most educated followed by Yorubas and finally the Northern peoples (due mostly to uneducated women)

PS: I am not Igbo before anyone asks.
