lactose intolerance

I wander about the 1st west African to get lactose intolerance. See, most West-African aren't cattle herder. We live in the rain forests (a.k.a jungle), and cattle seems to prefer to eat grasses, which is more prevalent in the Savannah region north of our abode. Therefore we choose to be farmers and hunters. Suites our environment better. Good soil, lots of animals and plenty of rain. This is why our bowel to this day can not adapt fully to milk.
So, imagine this first West-African to get Lactose intolerance. He had travel to a cattle herding society and drank this stuff which seems to be delicious. Now he is stomach is cramping and he is passing gas like crazy.

BOSKOP

So I read an article in Discover magazine about the Boskop Hominids. They are Hominids that lived in southern Africa about 30,000 years ago. What was so special about this hominids was the size of their frontal lobe. It was much larger than ours, which would mean that they have higher IQ than we do. This begs the question; if these hominids were smarter than us, how come they are extinct and we still exist? Apparently, in the world of 30,000 years ago, smarter doesn't mean you survive.

Infaliable

Remember when you are young and still look-up to your parents and they are like gods. It seems like they could do no wrong. Then suddenly you get older and all-of-a sudden discovered that they are actually human, and they make mistakes like everybody else. I remember the first and only time I saw my Dad cry. I was twelve and his sister had just died. I could not comprehend it, that this guy could actually cry like I do when he would whoop me sometimes for bullying my brothers or for tarrying too long on an
errand, when I will branch-off to the soccer field to play with friends.

Nigeria

I found myself thinking alot about Nigeria lately. With the 2011 election coming up, what Nigeria needs is good leadership. It doesn't matter where the leader comes from, we need a leader who is strong and patriotic. Nigeria has a chronic leadership problem that needed to be solved first before the nation can progress anywhere. We need a devoted leader that can tackel corruption that has almost become synonymous with the name "Nigeria." We need leaders that will be loyal to the nation and not their own pocket. Only after this can the nation move forward. Nigeria is the most populous black nation. We have over 150million people. We have the human power in number, we just need to harness it like China is doing. I've heard that one in every six black person is Nigerian, same as around one six human being is Chinese. We need to make the nation work and shut-up irresponsible people who are calling for the nations separation.

The Ache in my tooth

So I've been having this toothache for about two weeks and I've managed to keep the pain under wrap with Advil. That is until Wednesday morning when I woke-up at 4am with the most horrible pain I've ever felt in my life. I was almost in tears as I roll around the bed in totall agony for hours untill I can get hold of a dentist in the morning. I picked up the a phonebook a turned the page in hurry to the dentists page. I dailed the first number I layed my eyes on. I needed a dentist, any dentist. it doesn't matter and I dont care as long as he/she can pulled the stupid tooth out. The pain has subsided a little but my head still felt like a church bell was ringing in their. The pain was still unbearable allthough I had just taking Aleve few minute ago. The medication is ineffective. I had dailed three numbers before I could find a dentist that would accept a new walk-in patient with no dental insurance.
"Can you come in at 10:30?" The nice lady on the phone asked as I was contemplating trying another tablet of Aleve.
"Yes Ma'am!" I uncrossed my fingers and breath a sigh of relif. Thank you Jesus, especially because I dont have clinicals today.
Two hours later I was lying on the dentist's chair waiting for the result of the x-ray. The Doctor was probably in his late twenties. He smilled as he streched his hand towards me.
"Mr. Odedere, I am Doctor Andrews." He pronounced my name incredibly well
"Well, we will not be able to save your tooth, will you like me to take it out?"
"I really dont mind, as long as the pain stops" I said, still grimacing
He smilled "I know what you mean. Toothache is no joke. Give me a few minutes."
He stepped out of the room. I sank back into the chair as i get ready to say bye-bye to this tooth that has toutured me for so long.
