There’s this Igbo saying, ‘it’s always good to have a stupid person in the community, but who’s household will he/she come from?’
Have you ever wondered why we have different people with different characters? People who come up with innovative ways to amaze you or annoy you each passing day. People wired to be different in a ways you can’t fathom? Relax. Don’t waste your strength engaging in mental exercises which you have absolutely no chance of gaining anything useful from; when you could easily channel that strength into sleeping.
Brethren, it’s simple we can’t all be normal. It’s impossible for everyone on planet earth to be normal. Nope. Simply impossible. I mean, what kind of a world would it be without the likes of bobrisky? I can’t even deal with that. I don’t want to believe that we’d exist in a type of world where everyone is normal. Nah. You see, we have to have the psychotic ones, the intellectuals, the idiots, the ones that light up your day with their smile, the lazy ones, the unrepentant optimists, the ones with sole the aim of leading you to hell with them, the anti-social pessimists, the full-time loner, the professional liars, the part-time fools, the unabridged nitwits . . . ( I could go on and on ).
My point is, we shouldn’t bother ourselves wondering why people behave in certain ways or try to figure out why people do what they do. God had a reason for sowing confusion in the midst of those people that tried to build a tower to heaven- it was boring hearing a million people speak the same language. That way, it’d also be boring to have seven billion people exhibiting the same character. Everyone sounding intelligent at the same time? Tufiakwa!
My dear, the next time you see someone exhibit an unprecedented level of stupidity, don’t join issues. Nah. Just take a deep breathe and whisper to your soul ‘we all can’t be normal’.

I lost hope in humanity a long time ago. Now sarcasm is my only defense.

  1. Man can influence his life through his own conduct, and that in this process conscious thinking and wanting can play a part. … Those who are striving to improve the lot of man may ground their hopes.

  2. From the above picture we wholeheartedly deduced and conform in the philosophy of the existentialist who conclude that man is the arbiter and architect of his life on earth.however the fact remains that human rules their world since we lost interest in humanity.now we understand that neither tradition nor certain unseen forces are responsible to man’s inability on earth.therefore,it is wife we bear in mind that manner can not fall from heaven without physical struggle.
