I will talk about Kenya. Again. A country full of very intelligent and gifted people who prefer to use their creativity and God-given inner genius on pitiful engagements. Clever tweets, trending topic, football jokes, very intelligent insults, clever MeMes etc. Sad. lemmi give a few examples.
The Miguna Fella
One of the MOST hated people in Kenya right now. What did he do? What most Kenyans would never dare to do. He grew balls. While most of us just have scrotums, Miguna has balls. Big, round ones.
He exposed corruption and greed. But he becomes a NATIONAL ENEMY. Never given a chance to be a hero he might, probably, be. Ask yourself a few questions:
- Does anyone in the Media or #KOT have proof that Miguna was wrong in his report/accusations?
- Why are we all passionate and blindly DEFENSIVE of leaders who have never improved our lives/country one bit?
- Was there any quote from Miguna that the reason he went to Canada was political asylum? Or is it just assumed that if you grow balls, you must RUN? So he MUST have run?
- Is it enough to just turn ANYTHING in the news, no matter how deeply it affects us, as a joke and laugh all day about it while our country gets raped? Daily? By the SAME people?
Just asking. I am a coder. Not a politician. That is why I never watch news. 85% politics, 10% political sports, 5% ads.Waste of time.
The Van persie genius
If I was a player who was in a club for 7 years. Only averaged 10 games a year because my legs are made of powder. Then, accidentally, I manage to stay ONE season injury-free and given the quality of midfield In my team, I manage to score a bagful of goals, still earning a little over GBP100k per week. Then, if I was in a club that thought alot about expenses and, nearing my 30s, I needed a BIG pay for one season, because the injuries will surely be back and worse. Then a team, deep in debt with a manager who cares nothing about the team’s financial health came around and was willing to pay me more than DOUBLE, despite my scaringly bad injury records, I would also move.
Van persie, as greedy as Adebayor, got this one right. It is all about the money in football nowadays. The EXACT opposite of the Olympics. People will get hit, injured, bleed for their countries in Olympics. Ohh no! Not in football. It is no longer about courage and being a legend. It is about the MONEY. Had Rooney not received a HUGE payrise last transfer period, he would be a Chelsea player today.
Forget legends. There will be no more Rauls. No more Henrys. No more Giggggggggsssss. Just a bunch of over-paid players. And blind supporters.
I am sure 90% of the Man Urinals blind fans are ecstatic about the purchase. They care nothing about the team. They just want big names. I sat with part of the sane 10% who can do maths and they classify this as the ‘most stupid risk ever, that they wish will pay off’. Getting a sick-note player for 72M (20M to Arsenal then 250K per week for 4 years) is not a gamble. It is stupidity. Further proof that Fergie is, officially, senile.
This is the EXACT reason you will never see me do ANYTHING meaningful in life with a ‘Man U Fan’. Blind, loud-talking short-sighted idiots who will never be able to sustain a long-term business relationship. All I do with them is maybe share a drink and a game of pool. Period.
That lecture about ball
I was once told by Kelly, “Salim, remove that Arsenal sticker from your laptop”. People will judge you before you even start doing a system demo. I removed it. Ball is only 90 mins per weekend. Not my reason for existence.
I have no problem with a female hurling insults and talking about football all day at the office/twitter etc. She is just being herself. But when a male, someone in control of their emotions and intelligence starts insulting the VERY people they will hope to meet later and talk biz, just to be popular on twitter, I found this pitiful.
Supporting Man Urinals of Barca or Spain does now make YOU a winner. You are NOT related in any way. it just means that you googled enough before choosing a team and you are such a loser in your life, you need to derive joy from other people’s successes. Team Kubwa jersey with 50 bob in your pocket.
Supporting Arsenal does not mean YOU are a loser. It just means you have enough patience to see a team develop slowly using a STRONG financial model. A debt-free establishment who make more ticket-money than ANY club in England per game. Means you understand business. Patience and focus on what really matters.
I would be lying to say a trophy or 2 would not be nice, but if we need to Spend GBP 72M in the hope of winning something, then this is madness.
Acha ball ianze.
Err… Nisiambiwe nimetukanana.
Back to code!
