What Elon Musk should have done

Canadian, South African American (rare tri-national) billionaire Elon Musk just recently sent his red tesla car to Mars. As in he attached his car to a rocket and boom shakalaka...

Musk, who sold Paypal to ebay for a nice chunk of change has already stated his future ambition to put humans on Mars in 2040. But we feel he has missed a better opportunity. Why not go FULL TONY STARK. This is what he should have done

1.    Get dropped off in Syria, Afghanistan or any worn torn country with nothing but a cell phone and dinner coat.

2.    Make sure you are taken captive.

3.    Convince your captors you can build a missile for them if they spare you.

4.     Instead use parts provided to build an iron man suit that you will use to escape and never take it off. Infact the suit should assemble itself on you upon command.

5.     Then pair up with Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote, Stan Kroenke and Oprah to form a super group and you can call yourselves the Billionaires League or something cute.

Sir Nelson Mandela? Make it happen Lady

Dear Queen Elizabeth II,

Congratulations on your 100th birthday or whatever your age is. We are all getting older, but you remain forever young. I just have one major question, why hasn't the late great African icon Nelson Mandela been awared a knighthood?

This is a man that gave up his freedom and most of his productive life to fighting the oppression of his people by white people, in his own country. During his time in prison, you did nothing to help get him released. He finally gets released from prison, runs for President, wins and unites. Then he does something very UnAfrican.....he does one term in office and hands over.

It has been years since his passing and still no knighthood. Does he have to be an old English, Welsh or Scottish actor or musician to be knighted??. Even David Beckham is begging for a knighthood. Please do the right thing, Sir Nelson Mandela has to happen.

Yours Sincerely,

Avo Bode and other African Diasporians

Better than Oatmeal and Grits

This is the best breakfast ever. Yes we said it and it's so easy a cooking novice can make it.


GOLDEN MORN (as seen in above photo)

MILO or any other powdered chocolate beverage


First you boil water. If you do not know how to boil water then please stop reading and go to a fast food restaurant.  For those who are still here, you are boiling about half a kettle of water.
While the water is boiling, get a big breakfast bowl and pour in your prefered amount of Golden Morn. Then pour in at least 3/4 amount (comparable to Golden Morn) of Milo or your prefered chocolate powdered drink. Then pour in 1/2 amount ( comparable to Milo) of powdered milk.

Stir contents till they are evenly mixed.

By now your water is hot and boiled. Pour the water into the bowl and stir lightly. If you want a thick breakfast, then pour less water.

It's healthy and does not have the excess sugar of today's cereal.

Please drop a comment and let us know what you think. It will not change our opinion that our breakfast is the best.

Black Panther (Review)

The hype is real, Black Panther is an absolute delight. The latest addition to the never ending Marvel catalog of films that tells an ongoing modern story in an alternate reality.

A story of an African king who is not ready to rule but has to, after the death of his father.A leader who selfishly wants to help only his people and not share the treasure and power they truly posses. A power so great, it will cause untold damage.

Chadwick Boseman leads a predominately black cast of well known actors and actresses from Forest Whitaker to Angela Basset, from Dana Gurira to Lupito Nyong'o and a charmingly roguish performance from Michael B. Jordan. Jordan plays the villain Killmonger in this movie and is directed by Ryan Coogler, who he worked with on Creed and Fruitvale Station.

This African story is a rich one that mirrors what several African countries have faced and continue to face
                           *  stolen African artifacts in an English museum
                           *  natural resources that attract foreign looters
                           *  relationship between Africans and African Americans
                           *  Leadership handed from Father to son without an election

The pacing and and comedic timing is excellent and you are left entertained without too much politics in your popcorn.
