I wonder is there a way carpenters charge for roof wood work, one charge is 270K and another 370K cool

The difference is unexplainable, at least someone told me that stone coated sheet is N200 per square metre they charge.

just an observation, all pics are single storeyed buildings. Does that mean the bricks are not capable of multi-storeys?

Crime / Re: My Target Was Pastor Chris - Lagos Bomber by silky(m): 12:19pm On Jan 09, 2010
Nice to see Nairaland as vibrant as ever!!

My take on this is to consider what the end result would have been had the lift been working.

He would have delivered the 3 parcels and either left the building anonymously which would have resulted in explosion, loss of innocent lives OR blown himself up with others on the 9th floor.

Either way the result would never have lead to money for him, so putting things into perspective and not getting carried away with people's status the story doesn't add up.  When the US added Nigeria to the list of countries on it's Terror Watch these sort of incidents would have been taken into account as well as activities on the Net.

What is worth knowing is, when there is a high volume of traffic to sites that teach bomb making techniques or promote extremist activities, from a region that region becomes suspect.  If that country has in place what is seen as adequate measure to monitor and combat those activities they are left to handle it within their own borders, however intelligence still gets shared. Whether or not this is the case with Nigeria you can make your mind up on that!

It is quite unfortunate and a sorry state of affairs to be in though but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading each post under this topic.

Forum Games / How Smart Is Your Right Foot? by silky(m): 2:57pm On Apr 28, 2006
This is so funny that it will boggle your mind. And you will keep trying it to see if you can outsmart your foot. But you can't!!!


1. While sitting down, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles with it.


2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction!!!


I told you so, And there is nothing you can do about it.

This is the transcript of the ACTUAL radio conversation of a US naval ship with the Canadian Authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-95.

Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees South to avoid a collision.

Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees North

Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees South to avoid a collision

Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

Canadians: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.

Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN. THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE US ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY 3 DESTROYERS, 3 CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH. THAT’S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

Jokes Etc / Parrots by silky(m): 10:52am On Apr 28, 2006
A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, "Father, I have a problem.
I have two female parrots, but they only know how to say one thing."

"What do they say?" the priest inquired.

They say, "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?" "That's obscene!" the priest exclaimed, then he thought for a moment. "You know," he said, "I may have a solution to your problem. I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible.
Bring your two parrots over to my house, and we'll put them in the cage with Francis and Job. My parrots can teach your parrots to praise and worship, and your parrots are sure to stop saying, that phrase, in no time."
"Thank you," the woman responded, "this may very well be the solution."

The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest's house. As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside their cage holding rosary beads and praying. Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them. After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in unison: "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?"
There was stunned silence. Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and exclaimed, "Put the beads away, Frank. Our prayers have been answered!"
Jokes Etc / Project Manager by silky(m): 10:46am On Apr 28, 2006
A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display.

While he was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper: "I'll have a C monkey please."

The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the shop and took out a monkey. He fitted a collar and leash, handed it to the customer, saying, "That'll be £5000." The customer paid and walked out with his monkey.

Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said: "That was a very expensive monkey. Why did it cost so much?" The shopkeeper answered: "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very fast, tight code, no bugs well worth the money."

The tourist looked at the monkey in another cage: "That one's even
more expensive! £10,000! What does it do?" "Oh, that one's a
C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented programming, Visual
C++, even some Java. All the really useful stuff", said the shopkeeper.

The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey in a cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read £50,000. He gasped to the shopkeeper: "That one costs more than all the others put together! What on earth does it do?"

The shopkeeper replied: "Well, I haven’t actually seen it do anything, but the other monkeys call him the project manager."
Jokes Etc / Systems Failure by silky(m): 10:35am On Apr 28, 2006
A TRUE story from the helpline of a major computer manufacturer:

Computer Assistant: "May I help you?"
Caller: "Yes, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."

Computer Assistant: "What sort of trouble?"
"Well I was just typing along and all of a sudden the words went away."

Computer Assistant: "Went away?"
Caller: "They disappeared."

Computer Assistant: "Hmm, So what does your screen look like now?"
Caller: "Nothing."

Computer Assistant: "Can you see the C prompt on the screen?"
Caller: "What's a C prompt?"

Computer Assistant: "Never mind. Can you move the cursor around the screen?"
Caller: "There isn't any cursor. It won't accept anything I type."

Computer Assistant: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
Caller: "What's a monitor?"

Computer Assistant: "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a T.V. Does it have a little light that tells you when it's switched on?"
Caller: "I don't know."

Computer Assistant: "Well then, just look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"
Caller: "No it's too dark in here."

Computer Assistant: "Dark?"
Caller: "Yes, the office light is off so the only light I have is what's coming in the window."

Computer Assistant: "Well you'd better turn on the office light, then."
Caller: "I can't."

Computer Assistant: "Why not?"
Caller: "Because there's a power failure."

Computer Assistant: "A power , a power failure? Aha, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes, manuals and packing stuff that the computer came in?"
Caller: "Well, yes - I keep them in the closet."

Computer Assistant: "That's good. Go and get them and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from."
Caller: "Really? Is it that bad?"

Computer Assistant: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."
Caller: "Well, all right then. I suppose. What do I tell them?"

Computer Assistant: "Tell them you're too f****** stupid to own a computer."
Jokes Etc / Don't Ever Lie To Your Mother! by silky(m): 10:09am On Apr 28, 2006
A young man called John invited his mother over for dinner. During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how handsome John's flatmate was.

She had long been suspicious of a relationship between the two, and this only made her more curious. Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between John and his flatmate than met the eye. Reading his Mum's thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Simon and I are just flatmates."

About a week later, Simon came to John saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner I've been unable to find the beautiful silver gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

"Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her just to be sure.", said John. So he sat down and wrote:

Dear Mother,
I'm not saying that you 'did' take the gravy ladle from my house, I'm not saying that you 'did not' take the gravy ladle, but the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Love, John

Several days later John received an email from his Mother which read:

Dear Son,
I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Simon, and I'm not saying that you 'do not' sleep with Simon, but the fact remains that if he was sleeping in his own bed he would have found the fu@#ing gravy ladle by now.
Love, Mum
Jokes Etc / Who Said Women Aren't Clever by silky(m): 10:03am On Apr 28, 2006
A woman was out golfing one day when she hit her ball into the woods. She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap. The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you 3 wishes."

The woman freed the frog and the frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes - that whatever you wish for, your husband will get 10 times more or better!"

The woman said, "That would be okay," and for her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The frog warned her, "You do realise that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man
in the world, an Adonis, that women will flock to." The woman replied, "That will be okay because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will only have eyes for me."

So, KAZAM - she's the most beautiful woman in the world!

For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world. The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world and he will be ten times richer than you." The woman said, "That will be okay
because what is mine is his and what is his is mine."

So, KAZAM she's the richest woman in the world!

The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered, "I'd like a mild heart attack."

Jokes Etc / Dead Analyst by silky(m): 9:33am On Apr 28, 2006
An Analyst/Programmer dies and is met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates. Saint Peter asks him if he wants to go to Heaven or Hell.

‘You mean I get to choose?’ the man asks.
‘Oh yes, you can have a look at each and then decide for yourself.’ Saint Peter replies. Saint Peter points into the window of Heaven where people are relaxing, reading books and chatting. All seems very pleasant.

Then Saint Peter points into the window of Hell where there is a distinct party atmosphere, music and laughter can be heard and people are definitely having fun.
‘I think I’ll opt for Hell’ says the Analyst/Programmer, ‘It looks much better to me!’
So, Saint Peter lifts the ’phone and asks the Devil to come and escort the man to Hell.

On their arrival, the door opens to reveal a hot smelly room full of people shovelling shit. The Devil hands him a shovel.
‘What’s going on - what about the place Saint Peter showed me?’ asks the man, in a panic.
‘Ah,’ smiles the Devil, ‘that was the demo’.
Culture / Re: Raising Your Children The Nigerian Way When Married To A Foreigner by silky(m): 9:33pm On Apr 22, 2006
How does racism come into the issue of raising up your child in a good way

No parent in their right mind sets out to humiliate their child for the fun of it or for personal satisfaction, having said that some parents let their emotions get the better of them.

Back to the point of the thread, regardless of being married to a foreigner well behaved children from any society will have had good guidance, been chastised a few times allowed to make mistakes and come out good at the end of it all.
