Hahaha...very funny. While everyone thinks Germans are the most hardworking, Greeks believe they are the most hardworking.

Default Re: Food for Thought

I Have discovered that at the heart of Existence should lie LEAVING A LEGACY. Be you a DAD or a MUM raising up kids, a RELIGIOUS, POLITICAL or BUSINESS PIONEER or LEADER. We all will be dead longer than we 've lived, so from today STOP living for SELF and the PRESENT, START living for TOMORROW and POSTERITY, BUILD always with a LONG-TERM Perspective. - a thought on leaving a Legacy ( Author Known to God).
" Every of our ACTIONS is a SEED that is sown...and the HARVEST is always MORE than the seed, so we should be careful the seeds we sow bearing in mind that there will definitely be an harvest" - Dr. Mrs Kehinde (My revered lecturer at UNILAG in Philosophy of Science, and an expert in the field of Epistemology).

Quote:
But skin-lightening is not just a fascination and obsession of women. Congolese hair stylist Jackson Marcelle says he has been using special injections to bleach his skin for the past 10 years. Each injection lasts for six months. "I pray every day and I ask God, 'God why did you make me black?' I don't like being black. I don't like black skin," he tells me.

"I like white people. Black people are seen as dangerous; that's why I don't like being black. People treat me better now because I look like I'm white," he adds.

In the 1980s, Yu Youzhen was merely an ordinary vegetable farmer in Wuhan City Hongshan District Donghu Village Huojiawa who, after years of building and additions, came to possess three 5-storey private buildings, most of which were rented out. In 2008, Yu Youzhen chanced upon [government policies for] the requisition, demolition, and redevelopment of land [mostly takes place in rural areas, where when a peasant’s land is expropriated by the government and the peasant is compensated for it with new houses or apartments in other locations] and was successively given 21 apartments [for her previous property]. Yu Youzhen personally witnessed some of her fellow villagers not engaging themselves in decent activities after being compensated with multiple apartments, falling into gambling, and even drug use. In order to set a good example for her children, from 1998 onwards, the now landless Yu Youzhen went to Wuchang District Chengguan Bureau to work as a sanitation worker, with a 1,420 yuan monthly salary, only one day off each week, and having to arrive for work 3 every morning.

Yu Youzhen is responsible for the sanitation of an approximately 3,000-meter long stretch of road, sweeping along its length back and forth 6 hours every day, wiping and washing 8 trashcans. Since it’s cold outside, a thin layer of ice forms on the surface of the trashcan that as Yu Youzhen just bent down to wipe with a wet rag.

Yu Youzhen is buying newspapers.

Interesting. But this wont work in Naija. If your children believe you are rich and then see you laboring here they would think you are fool. They may even speed up your death so they will take and enjoy the money.

I used to know a vendor on Broad Street in the late 90s with a stock portfolio that runs into tens of millions of naira way back. He still worked as a vendor delivering newspapers to offices on the Broad street. He has retired and the son has taken over the business.
