    I may have to point out that reviewers may be a bit worried about awarding points to others since reviewers are also competitors and may think that awarding points to others may give the other and edge over them. So maybe no competitor should be a reviewer in the future. Just thinking..

    Which post particularly was duplicated? Some post were ‘recalled’, but I haven’t noticed any duplicated post. Duplicated means that the person must have copied the post and made it seem like a completely new post, which I haven’t noticed anyone do here. So you have to be specific @samson.

    Is it even legal for a doctor to withhold such information about a person’s health from them? To what end exactly? Does this even happen? Because it would be ridiculous. If I go to a doctor for diagnosis and he withholds it from me how can I pay him? Or does the doctor want to use the person as test-case or what?

    I don’t think that the excuse of “I don’t have” should be enough reason. If you are jobless, then who do you expect to feed you? Is the other person making enough money to feed themselves first before they start thinking of you? If you are jobless, get up, look for a job, volunteer somewhere for something, train until you are skilled enough then start getting paid somehow. Don’t just sit in the house and tell me “I don’t have”. That is not enough. And don’t blame your joblessness on Buhari.

    I also think everyone should try to contribute domestically whether you are working or not.

    The truth however, is that whoever wants to find fault with you will do even if you do all the right things. Infact, they hate you even more when you try to do right. You can never please human being, especially if you are scotting (living under their roof. I’m not sure I got the spelling right.)

    People should stop serving food/souvernirs at funerals unless it is a ‘celebration of life’. In this part of the world we’ve grown so fond of eating at burial ceremonies that our conscience towards it is non-existent else explain why you would go to a place of grieve and still have the stomach for food. How can you see people mourning and crying over the death of a loved one and still drag for rice and stew? Some even drag sourvenir. As far as I know, when you visit a grieving person you should give something to them not collect from them. Anything otherwise shows that you came to eat only and that you are happy for the death of the person.  Food and sharing of gifts (souvernirs), as I know, is meant for celebration not for grieving times.  Loved ones of victims should stop it first so that Nigerians can learn something from it.

    Great at shanks. Education is both formal and informal. Not all has to occur in a classroom. It is well known that many of the world’s revolutionaries were self-taught/informal or couldn’t/didn’t finish college; Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Steve Jobs, etc

    The problem in this part of the world is that we are solely focused on formal education as if it is the only means through which a person can become to the point where those who didn’t go to college are either looked down on by others or do themselves the injustice of looking down on themselves.

    Yes, formal education is very beneficial to a person, as one gets to meet and collaborate with others who are either smarter or as good as them, but I’ve found that the most intelligent even in the formal world are still persons who spend time outside the classroom developing their own skills and knowing, proving what they were taught in class for themselves and deriving their own knowledge from it. So it doesn’t really make a difference whether you went to college or not. Learning and growth is dependent on individual drives.The world though has become so paper-minded and that is truly affecting the creativity of a lot of persons.

    18 for is too old, because at that age the child would have already had some sexual experiences (not necessarily intercourse) and have formed what sex/sexual education is for themselves. Some of them would have already made wrong choices especially in this present century where sex sells. At the early age of twelve, most children’s sexual activeness manifest. They notice a certain body reaction when they see something sexual like kissing, romance of all sorts. They know definitely that it has to do with sex. If they aren’t properly educated before about what sex is they would find out for themselves following their own urges which is risky business; some get infections, diseases, early pregnancy, etc. So to avoid all this, parents should start as early as possible. Age 5 is a good number.

    Parents could also get to notice each child’s growth, attitude towards sexual encounters, and use that to determine when it is right to start educating the child this is cause all children don’t grow at the same rate.

    First of all, lots of men are naggers too, do why are you making it a woman thing, as if it is a character trait of women? It’s a human problem ok. It’s just that some persons have learned to control it more than others.

    Secondly, there’s no excuse for why a man should hit his wife. If you check, he probably nags too but it only becomes a problem when she does it? This is how people make excuses for rapists, claiming that the victims were dressed provocatively (so man cannot learn to control his own body again abi). Excuses like this make the culprits believe that there are certain reasons permissible for them to commit their crimes and get away with it. This should not be condoned.

    Usually a fool is someone who refuses advice, knowledge and wisdom; someone who has to be right always even when wrong, and discards others wisdom; what they want to do is always what they’ll do. So let them be and let them continue in their error. You let experience become their best teacher.

    Someone people will never take correction no matter what you say.

    Constant communication destroys tension and gives no room for resentment towards one another to fester. And while spouses are communicating they should learn to not pick faults in every tiny their partner does. Sometimes one party thinks the other person knows that what they are doing is wrong and is doing it intentionally so they start making faces and stop communication based on that assumption. That is wrong. You will be surprised to know that you partner doesn’t know or consider what you see as wrong that way. So you must ket them know and make them understand why it is bad for you. Don’t assume.

    Also, if you notice you spouse avoiding you or making faces address it immediately. Don’t join him/her to start making faces thinking: make I see who go tire first na. That is so silly.If you the spouse making faces is asked by the other the reason for your behaviour, do not snob them. Answer apprioprately and deal with the situation there and then. Don’t let it escalate into something so big, becasue it could lead to seperation and divorce (afterall humans are very proud people).

    Then, for the wives, don’t always wait for your husband to tell you sorry over every thing. So annoying.

    One military guy slapped me (don’t worry it wasn’t that bad) one time because I spoke for a keke driver who he was bullying. There was heavy traffic on the road. Cars were jammed. Road safety were trying to clear the road for everyone. Then comes the military man in his motorbic. His girlfriend was with him. He saw that traffic was bad, yet still tried to force his way into the lane of the kek driver who was just about to move and collided with the driver. I think the keke’s side mildly hit his girlfriend, so he came down from hi bic giving commands,

    “Come down here now, quickly!” That’s when I spoke oh!

    Next I saw, He charged to where I was in my Keke (My driver couldn’t speed off because of the traffic), commanded me, driver and other passengers to come down and whaaam. I sensed he regretted the act after because he just let me go immediately after. Maybe he just did it to cool his ego or whatever.

    Now, everyone there saw that he was wrong yet everyone minded their business. So yeah, some people are above the law.

    When I was your age talk makes me laugh so much. This is what my older sister did to me in my Primary School/Junior Secondary years. She would say, “I used to come first all the time in class. People look up to me” blah blah blah. Then one day we were doing a thorough search in our palour for a document. I found her primary school result and guess what I saw – 19th. Chai. I couldn’t believe it. A whole my sister getting 19th. Well I mockingly confronted her with it and I and my other sblings had a good laugh about it. Lol. (Now this my sister was actually very brilliant and did come out first several times but she made it looked like first is the only position she had ever taken in her life so I couldn’t believe that score that day hence my reaction).

    However, I realized that her constant criticism pushed me and made me read more so I could pass more and prove to her that I was as good even better. And I did just that. After her criticisms of my previous performance, I saw myself coming out 3rd, then 1st. After coming first, I realized just how cool it feels to know so much that you become the 1st in the class. I began to love knowing more, and to love reading more. I began to love that position.

    So sometimes their criticisms can be tough and even lies but I believe they have our best interests at heart. They just want us to do better than what we already do – to do better than them.

    The people that love us and the people that we love are the ones that keep us strong and moving when the busy world begins to take it’s toll on us. We must learn to know them and hold on to them tight. We shouldn’t let the business of the world keepus far from them. Else when we fall out of pressure and stress we would have none to lean on to.

    They are all thieves because they all took something that doesn’t belong to them. The only difference is their methods. One used his brains whereas the other used his gun. This shows that brains trump all.
