Ownership Mentality In Family Starts With An Adventurous Male Seeking A Desired Female. Then He Finds Her And Tries To Convince Her. Finally To “acquire” Her, He Follows Traditional Dictates By Paying A Bride Price. The Reality And Legitimacy Is Confirmed During The Marriage Ceremony; The Priest Asks “who Gives Out The Bride” Then Her Father Replies “i, Hercules … Do”. He Then Hands Her Over To Her New “owner”.

There Are Times When Lying Is An Act To Another Person To Re-paint An Embarrassing Moment, Event Or Situation One Wishes To Forget. The Lie Re-paints Situations Or Events In Other To Make The Liar’s Involvement Blameless Or Make Their Position Less Embarrassing So That They Can Still Have Some Dignity Left. It Is Therefore A Lie To Have Honour. These Types Of Lies Are Therefore “cooked” To Achieve The Stated Effects. There Are Accidents In Which The People Involved Usually Refrain From Telling Others The Real Way They Had Sustained Their Injuries Because Of The Attendant Embarrassment They Would Suffer If The Truth Was Known....

The Definition And Purpose Of Life Had Encouraged Many Thought Patterns. None Is Wrong Yet They All Postulate Different Viewpoints. Life Therefore Is A Mystery So Daunting That Some Have Seen The Face Of God Through The Inexplicable Complexity And Artistry While Others Try To Convince Their Shortsightedness With Their Self-agreeing Supposition Of A Chance Event Embellished Further With An Evolving Logic. No Denigration Intended Here....

Valuable Things Come In All Shaded Of Materials. Some Are Perishable Or Biodegradable When They Come In Contact With Certain Elements. Some Are Non-biodegradable But Could Scratch, Peel, Fade Or Rust, Soiled, De-colour And Much More Confirming That Nothing Lasts Forever. Value Rating Therefore Is Relative Within A Class Of Interests And Expectations. The Famous One Died Recently Of A Rare Disease And Was Buried In A Golden Coffin And At A Marked Grave. But Suddenly, Importance Was Uneasily Shifted To An Unmarked Grave Of The Other Nobody Who Has No Name, No Identity And Had Died So Many Millennium Ago And Buried Even Wi...

Knowing That Female Magazines Are Usually Edited By Fellow Women, I Ventured To Find Out What Women Like To Read From Fellow Women’s Point Of View. My Expectations Were Fashion, Shopping, Food, Love And Romance, Most Of All Gossip About Fellow Women And Judgment On Men.in This Same Fashion, I Have Reasoned That A Male Magazine Must As A Necessity Include Naked Women Sampling Of Steroid Induced Muscles, Exercise Regime, Cars, Dangerous Life Styles And Adventure. In My Opinion, The Content Of Male Magazine Cannot Be The Same With Female Magazine....

The Psychology Of Being Nakedwilliam Nimeniboclothes Enhance The Quality And Class Of Persons While Being Cloth-less Mimics Raw Animal Level Of Primitivism. The Impression Clothes Impinge On The Wearer Is At Times Different From Its Effect On An Observer.
