Sayings On A Wall

These sayings made a whole lot of sense to me, so I share with the hope that someone else will gain with me from them.

Always trust your fellow man. And always cut the cards.
Always love thy neighbor. And always pick a good neighborhood to live in.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but you better bet that way.
Place your bet somewhere between haste-makes-waste and he-who-hesitates-is-lost.
About winning: It isn't important. What really counts is how you play the game.
About losing: It isn't important. What really counts is how you play the game.
About playing the game: Play to win

What do you think is the lesson being taught above?

Who else forgot the National Anthem?

On such an ordinary day, I was asked to recite

National Anthem. I stood with my head held

high, cleared my throat and went:

Arise oh compatriots

Nigeria's call obey To serve our fatherland

with love, and strength and faith

The ... (huh!) the ...

I didn't forget the rest, just the next word. I

had to google it.

Now, before you go 'what a dunce', recite the

National Anthem and say the pledge.

So, who else forgot a word of the anthem?

P.S My first trial of mobile blogging. I'll format it when I get my hands on a desktop.

Bullied By A 13 Months Old Man

Have you ever been bullied by anyone? Have you ever bullied anyone? I have been bullied a number of times in boarding school.

Today, for the first time after boarding school, I was bullied. I was bullied by ... wait for it ... my 13 months old nephew.

It was lunch time. I prepared noodles and settled down with my nephew so we could eat together. I took two forkfuls and then, bam! He started crying, pointing at my plate of noodles and refusing to have anymore pap.

I ended up having to watch him eat my noodles while laughing at me. Again, I ask. Have you ever been bullied by anyone? Have you ever bullied anyone?

Cameroon Blacklists T. B. Joshua

This is an article I found on Naijapals, a Nigerian SN. What do you think of this? A government reportedly banning a preacher from a nation?

Cameroon Blacklists T. B. Joshua 
The Cameroonian government has blacklisted Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua of the  Synagogue Church of All Nations, saying that he is an agent of Satan hoodwinking  unsuspecting members of the public with “diabolical miracles”.

•T.B. Joshua

Cameroon Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Henri Eyebe Ayissi, in an official communiqué he  issued this week titled “The Devil Is In the House”, described T.B. Joshua as a “son of  the devil” pretending to be “a man of God”.

The Minister warned hundreds of Cameroonians trooping to Lagos, South West Nigeria, for  miracles in Joshua’s church, to desist from taking the trip or face the consequences as  the country will not stand by them.

The communiqué written in French reads in part “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs warns  those who by naivety or deception of Emmanuel TV’s captivating images, or even those who  by hopelessness, envisage taking the pilgrimage to Pastor T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church  Of All Nations in Lagos, that they will do so at their own risk.

“The Cameroonian Government warns these pilgrims that they will face the consequences  alone. This is motivated by the painful and shameful fact that Cameroonian men and women,  in search of deliverance and blessings, once in that church, find themselves in bestial  and pitiable conditions.

“Women are raped; pilgrims dispossessed of their belongings by armed robbers and left to  sleep in the streets at the mercy of gangs. Many cases of assassinations have even been  recorded. And this is without other cases that are not recorded at the Cameroonian  Embassy in Lagos with the victims too ashamed to narrate their infernal odysseys once  they are out of Hell,” the Minister said.

The Minister said that while the bible asks us to be discreet with gifts and donations to  the poor, T.B. Joshua is seen daily dolling out bags of rice to indigent people.

Cameroonian newspapers which published the communiqué this week tell tales of hundreds of  Cameroonians who sold their properties or borrowed money in the hope of getting miracles  in T.B. Joshua’s Church, only to be disappointed in Lagos.

The newspapers report that Joshua’s TV station has gained popularity in Cameroon and many  people are tempted to take the trip and receive healings and sudden blessings.

It says that Joshua is now in many households in Cameroon and many people believe the  flashy images they watch on television.

One newspaper writes in French “witnesses who come back from that pandemonium reveal that  to secure an appointment with this Jesus-Christ-reincarnate, they had to spend 150, 000  FCFA (about N50, 000) and the amount keeps going up, depending on the treatment and the  case.
“This has led to confusion and disillusionment from Cameroonians, who on their way to  Damascus, now find themselves refugees at the Cameroonian Embassy in Lagos.”

The newspaper report says further: “There are many here in Cameroon, convinced of the  power and the blessings of this “man of God”. However, they forget that Jesus Christ is  in our hearts through faith and with our practice of the Ten Commandments and our  relationship with one another. Before the publication of the communiqué by the Ministry  of Foreign Affairs, the bible said over 2000 years ago, ‘And Jesus answered and said unto  them, Take heed that no man deceives you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am  Christ; and shall deceive many’.”

When contacted this morning, T.B. Joshua denied that he has been blacklisted in Cameroon.

He said that Cameroonians who come to his church only heard about him in Cameroon and  started trooping to the church in Ikotun, with most of them without accommodation.

He said that had he been aware of their presence around his church, he would have  provided accommodation for them. He invited P.M.NEWS to visit his church for detailed  information over the matter.

Professional Boxers in the House of Representatives

LMSAO!  The boxing match in the House of Reps was largely entertaining. Rather old news, but I just watched it today. Check it out here.

News Flash - People over 30 years old can still engage in the old 'fisticuffs' way of settling quarrels. Were you more embarassed or entertained?

What Has Nigeria Achieved?

Nowadays, my discussions with my friends broach, more frequently, societal matters. Nah, we don't discuss politics. Well, not anymore, considering that we normally end up vexed and frustrated after talking about how well our leaders are leading us.

While we were having one of our discussions,  a friend informed us of the preparations for the Nigeria's 50th birthday:

1. World's Largest Cake to be unveiled in this stadium
Abuja National Stadium

This No More. New 50 Naira Note Coming Soon!

Said friend was outraged at number 1.
He went on and on and on and on about Nigeria not having any achievements to celebrate. This, I pointed out to him, was very wrong. Then, bang! He asked me to list the achievements we are celebrating.

Here's my list -

 1. Our Independence
2. eh ...

Please HELP!!! 

What has Nigeria achieved since she gained independence? 

In what ways is she better now than she was, 50 years ago?

Psst! What is the answer to number 7?

Have you ever been in the exam hall and had someone 'psst!' you and ask you a question? What did you do? 

Today, in the exam hall, before we started, I had a total stranger (yet, tough looking guy) beg me to exchange seats with him so that he could be with his supplier. I exchanged seats with him. If you were the one, knowing he wanted to cheat in the exam hall, and that doing so would help him, would you have switched seats with him?

Later on today (still in the exam hall), a very close friend asked me for answers. I couldn't tell him (I have a principle of 'man alone' in the exam hall). I had to ignore him. What would you have done?

                                                           Exam Malpractice (How Smart Are We?)
Ah, the age old 'Giraffe style'

Now, this I saw during JAMB UME
LOL! Why don't you name it yourself?
Outdated method (bullets)
Aw! You knew he wouldn't search there!

No More Exams In UNILAG

Yay! Exams are over. Let's raise the roof! Who let the dawgs out?! Whoo!
I'm so excited. My friends and I took our last walk around UNILAG today.

We all slept for 5 hours, at least, when we returned to the hostel. I just can't wait to get home.

It's been interesting and something like emotional.

Exam Updates
This Chemistry exam was a bit tricky. There were 5 questions that I didn't know enough about. Have you ever done 'tumbo tumbo' (eeny meeny miny mo) in an exam?

I did that today with the five questions. There were options A - D.

Now, instead of 'tumbo tumbo', I used JESUS CHRIST to pick. Guess what? It worked. I came out, checked my answers, and I got all five of them correct. Thus, I'm sharing this method. Are you feeling lucky?

Introducing 'tumbo tumbo' the Christian style.

1. View question that you have no idea about.
2. Which of these exclamations come to your mind when you contemplate solving it. JESUS CHRIST! or JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
3. Now, instead of eeny meeny miny mo or 'tumbo tumbo, baskalaba, alaye alaye, tuwa tuwa ...' , go 'J E S U S  
C H R I S T' or 'J E S U S C H R I S T  I S  L O R D'.

For example, solve the following -

What is the origin of the bond rotation barrier in ethane?
A. Covalent Bonding B. Intermolecular forces of attraction. C. Steric hindrance 
D. Hyperconjugation


J E S U S ... I S   L O R D

It fell on C and the answer is C!

That's All He Wrote, Folks! Thanks For Stopping By ...


How many times have I been told to ‘stop dreaming and face reality’? How many times has and will the word ‘reality’ be used to crush my dreams?

Light bulbs, airplanes, electricity, computers, Internet, cars, etc., these were dreams people had. One can only wonder how many times they were told to ‘stop dreaming and face reality’.
