2 Ponderables


...Burj Dubai..under construction


...................................


...Taipei 101



................................

Number 1
I remember watching Superman/Smallville...and in one episode Clark's father tells the young superman honestly, "Son, no matter how strong you are, there will always be someone stronger than you."
With the exception of God, and while limiting the context to this world, "there will always be a bigger, better, faster, taller, more beautiful, richer". If you doubt, just ask Bill Gates..now he's no 2 richest. But more interesting is the new world's tallest building...the burj Dubai which is taller than the one in Taiwan, which was taller than the one in China, which was taller than The famous Twin towers in Malaysia, which was taller than the ones Osama blew off in 2001 in New York. Interestingly, after being acclaimed as the new world's tallest, the chairman of the developing company then issues this statement, "Its a fact of life, someone will build something taller than yours at some point". Quite profound.. I doubt if the tower of Babel would have come close to any of these four buildings i have posted.


...Jimao Building, China

................................

...the twin towers in Malaysia...(thats me n Oguchi)

Number 2
Pls take a very good look at this moron below:



..........................

this criminal was a governor of Taraba state, Nigeria up until a few months ago. Name is Reverend Jolly Nyame. Well on investigations of corruption, His Highness, this so-called reverend actually confesses to looting/stealing over 2.25 billion naira (well over 18.75 million US dollars ) of his people's money. He hopes that by confessing, he may just be forgiven. What did he spend the money on? well just a few aircrafts and other things he cannot remember....maybe we shld play nice and be good christians and forgive our dear Reverend...yeah right!!! No way! This crook should be dealt the highest punishment possible to serve as an example to the others. Yes there are many others, but we are happy to deal with this son of a *** first. Sorry Rev, appeal rejected. Read full story here
Geaorge Bush wouldnt dare go this low, neither would Abdullah Badawai or Tony Blair or GB so u guys (non-Nigerians)...ur leaders could be a lot worse

See the power of money,even a Rev. can't resist!
That's life,there is only one constant thing in it and that's change,so the guy is 100% correct,taller buildings will come up in the near future,maybe even before they complete the dubai building sef

Yeah thats a fact od life but the folks over at dubai are really breaking grounds in construction.

No matter what we think we are today,there will always be someone greater/better/richer and so on.
My Mum always says that the beautiful ones are not yet born.

All the thieves (ex-naija govs)are being prosecuted one by one now. They are all berating Yaradua for going against the 'Gentleman's agreement'.
As far as am concerned, the thief shall pay back in seven times seven fold.

I remember when the Sears tower was the tallest building (in Chicago). It is third tallest this very moment.

About the Rev - we can forgive but still hold one to his obligations to pay for his crimes.
