imes are hard; everything seems to be going wrong for so many people. That makes it imperative for me to give my readers something to ease their minds. They say that "laughter is the best medicine". When we're in a tense or difficult situation; we need to suddenly burst into a fit of giggles to feel released or rejuvenated. According to Chopra, studies have found that laughter can have healing properties; and it's contagious.

The point here is:

Women defy color, culture and class! Women (other than a small few) are the same everywhere and always have been. Although, according to MarkyMark's blog, there may be more restrictions on their behavior in some places, but it's only a matter of time before that falls apart (even Muslim countries are feminist in a peculiar way since burkas and sexual harassment lawsuits are similar). On top of that, women have always been the same. There is plenty of proof of this:

"Tie yourself up with a woman, and like a chained convict, you lose all freedom . . . If you only know what women in general are! Egotism, vanity, silliness, triviality in everything. That's what women are when they show themselves as they really are…No, don't marry, my dear friend. Don't marry!"

- Leo Tolstoy, "War and Peace"

Leo Tolstoy lived in the 1800s before modern feminism in Russia. Yet, the problems he describes with women are the same that we have now. The only real difference is that women now have the weapon of government to use against men. This means that even if the weapon of government is taken away from women, it doesn't mean men are safe. It also means that finding a non-American or non-Western woman doesn't change much either.

On another note:

A group of Nigerian husbands gathered at a conference on "How to live in a loving relationship with your wife".

The men were asked:

"How many of you love your wife"?

All the men raised their hands.

Then, they were asked:

"When was the last time you told your wife you loved her?"

Some men answered today; some yesterday; majority didn't remember.

The men were then told to take their cell phones and send the following text to their respective wives:

"I love you, sweetheart".

Then, the men were asked to exchange phones, so each of them can read the other wife's response to the love message...

Here are some of the replies from 10 of them:

  1. Have you impregnated someone again?

  2. That was then, not now.

  3. You wan borrow money abi?

  4. What did you do again? I won't forgive you this time!
