I’d just like to put it on the record that I wasn’t upset at Azza’s comment about me and it shouldn’t have been edited, it was funny.

John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I've been a member of this community for over 15 years so it's only fair to share my new found wealth with my comrades. I mean, what the hell am I going to do with 10 million US dollars. Sure, I know my lovely wife would have no problems finding a way to spend it but when I think of the less privileged in my community I immediately think of my poor fellow Raiders fans.

Haven't seen one of these for a while. Have at it lads, do your worst.


Beloved,

I extend to you this notice of blessing with greetings in the name of God, and I trust that this message has taken you by surprise. I have chosen you from among numerous individuals worldwide, and I hope the Almighty God will bless and guide you through this mission as you carefully read and comprehend the following message.

Before I proceed, allow me to share a brief overview of my life. I am Mother Mary Louis, a 76-year-old woman and the widow of Late Sir Jean Louis. He, along with our only child, tragically lost their lives in a plane crash on Monday, the 7th of September 1998, at GMT 14:22 UK time while flying from New York to Geneva. For more information, please visit the following link (removed)

Following the demise of my husband and son, I assumed responsibility for managing his investments. Recently, the doctors at the Cancer Center, Christie Hospital NHS Trust UK, have informed me that I may not live beyond the next two months after my upcoming surgery. Before my husband's passing, we had planned to use the remaining days of our lives to donate half of our wealth to the less privileged and charitable organizations, while the other half was allocated for ourselves, family, and close friends. Unfortunately, my husband is no longer with us, and my weakened state due to cancer, combined with the doctor's prognosis, has led me to undertake this philanthropic endeavor on behalf of both of us.

Currently, almost half of our assets have been bequeathed to various charity homes and less privileged individuals in different countries. Despite our commitment to aiding the deprived, we also agreed to extend support to an unknown individual, inspired by the anonymous help we received when we were young. Regrettably, you will never have the opportunity to meet me as I have fulfilled the assignment my husband and I agreed upon before his untimely demise. You are now the beneficiary of our last will, regardless of your previous financial status, and I kindly ask for your acceptance of this offer.

I have instructed my bank manager to assist any person I introduce to him as the beneficiary of the last will, with the sum of Ten Million United States Dollars (10,000,000.00) held in my bank in Nigeria, the FIRST INLAND BANK NIGERIA PLC. I am doing this unconditionally, recognizing that my time is limited.

To conclude this request, please provide me with your information, which I will use to draft a Letter of Authorization on your behalf and submit it to the bank as my new Next of Kin.

Full Names:
Physical address;
Age:
Direct telephone number
Occupation

I request that you do not thank me or show gratitude, as a similar act of kindness was shown to us. Instead, when you receive this fund, use 15% for yourself and use the remaining amount to assist the less privileged in your community and country. This is the only way to immortalize us when I am gone.

Kindly respond to my private email: mrsmarylouis173@gmail.com

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Mary Louis
Cancer Center: Christie Hospital NHS Trust
(Manchester, UK) North West of England

What would I do without you gangers? Based on that I'd say it was Campo that inspired me to join? Either that or my love for GE.

Gangers has superiority here
The spiral of silence refers to the idea that when people fail to speak, the price of speaking rises. As the price to speak rises, still fewer speak out, which further causes the price to rise, so that fewer people yet will speak out, until a whole culture or nation is silenced. This is what happened in Germany.

If you do not speak, you are not being neutral, but are contributing to the success of the thing you refuse to name and condemn.

It turns out I have a hernia, which has put a dent on my exercise regime. 😕

Mrs Fui just yelled at me, saying “Are you even listening to what I’m saying?”

I thought that was an odd way to start a convo. Can I report her?

Report her for a logical flaw.

Either you are listening and it’s unnecessarily aggressive, or you’re not listening and you’re not going to hear her anyway
