    Yes I fully agree with you, a wise man once said “you don’t have to be rich to give to the poor” this is the summary of it all.

    A lot of rich and influential people have had less impact on others than the not so rich ones. Do good every little chance you have and sometimes you can go out of your comfort zone to do it too.

    We discussed in this thread:

    if you died today what would you be remembered for?

    About the impact we have made in our own little ways. And a participant talked about the impact he has made in arts and literature. And that was a bit of encouragement for me.

    I think we should have the mindset of making impacts no matter how little we think it maybe.

    @adebulu I hope you know fully well that no matter how you handle the naira, either with care or otherwise it would still get old and unpresentable it just depends on the time it takes. , its paper when it has been circulated for long it becomes old and dirty. So when it does what next?

    Its true that we handle the naira poorly but that is another issue on its own, despite all the laws pit inplace to stop this, it gets worse by the day..

    If after sometime the CBN collects the old naira notes and substitute for new ones it would go a long way in helping better naira notes in the society.

    This same problem of change has made me loose early appointments several times, an adjustment should be made generally on the circulation of denominations of certain naira notes, and also the quality,

    there are also serious problems of naira notes not being presentable to some and okay for others.

    I collected change from a taxi driver once complaining to him i told him it was a bit torn and dirty he said, it was the only money  he had and it was also given to him by a customer.

    convincing me that any transporter i give would accept it. Well just immediately i gave it to a keke man, he refused saying  it was not good enough, that I should provide another.

    I was lucky to have extra money on me, don’t know what I would have done.

    There should be proper management of the naira notes by the CBN and other financial institutions, to reduce or even eradicate these problems.

    @adebulu you are obviously a new member reviewers where chosen from the maiden edition of the filtered thoughts competition, those who had 200 points and above, well we know ourselves,

    @chijann I thought I was the only one, reviewers according to @adminguy are those that scored 200 and above in the last edition.

    I think we should await @adminguy to tell us what is wrong.

    Nigerians are always rushing in everything they do we discussed in a previous thread:

    "Easy jeje"

    On how always rushing is not the best, I watched an interview once on Nta and pedestrians said they don’t have time to start walking on the bridge.

    These bridges are for our safety and the importance can’t be overemphasized weshould try to make use of them for our good.

    The idea of parents taking children to choose  what they want would not always be possible due to the financial status of the family,

    children should be thought contentment and there shouldn’t be a reason why they should steal,

    most of us where not given the opportunities to choose either, it didn’t make us thieves.

    if we could use that as an excuse most of us would be thieves by now. I think teaching your children contentment is the first key to separating them from the habit of stealing.

    Comparisons are necessary but can have a negative impact sometimes.  there was this particular boy my parents always made reference to when I was younger and said we should imitate his likes, well unknowingly to them he was into drugs even @ that tender age. And is an addict now.

    If I had become so close with him maybe I would be a strong addict by now.  Its good to compare but becareful not to be the architect of your own failure by comparison.

    Try to be specific on the part of the person that should be imitated, and avoid saying things like “see that boy/girl can’t you be like him/her”? Make sure its with the right reason you compare..

    All the teams in the FA cup have only that as a trophy to lift, I don’t think any of them would go easy on the other. Well I do hope Chelsea defeats Southampton.

    If they do then I want it to be a Chelsea Tottenham but would that be possible owing to the fact that Harry Kane has not fully recovered from his injury?

    @femi exactly an average hall ranges from a hundred thousand and above, it is really difficult to afford for the average Nigerian.

    Halls should be owned by the FG to make it affordable for the masses.

    And it is also a good medium of income too, if you get the capital and can establish a good comfortable event hall, it would be needed almost on a daily bases, for different ocassions.

    Where I stay motorcycles where banned for thesame reasons as @aezolase stated although in some areas its not obvious that they have been banned.

    they still roam around freely, and try to escape the police when they try to catch them, they squeeze themselves into small areas to avoid arrests.

    Some of them claim that it is the only source of livelihood for the survival of thier families.

    I think government should put to consideration these people and create a scheme to enable them obtain tricycles at a cheaper price, or an easier way,to gradually pay the government.

    Being part of the FTU has been a wonderful experience. Although I also got to know about it quite late as @chijann said but it was worth it,

    having a platform of outspoken people freely sharing ideas and opinions about things is priceless to me, FTU has given me hope for better intelligent things ahead,

    showing appreciation for educative and intelligent minds is rare in our society today.

    I do hope it happens often as @adminguy stated. It would also be nice to meet all the participants if  possible. And the idea of a reality TV show is a good one if we work towards it.

    thanks a million it has been a privilege to learn and compete at thesame time. I am in Anticipation of the upcoming ones.

    And to my fellow filtered thinkers is been an enlightening experience with you all. Thanks

    Common sense entails you read between the lines, in some cases not everything would be obvious you have to know when to think smart.

    Common sense is truly not common at all. But its very necessary everybody should poses this.
