Death by vending machine

 Pop quiz, kids, so you have change in your pocket and you are hungry at work, what do you do? 

The answer is pretty obvious, you spend that change on some sugar coated, processed to the core, wrapped goody that will not add anything positive to your life, let alone your teeth.

Then you sell yourself on the idea that the chips flavored and  colored to your satisfaction is healthy for you because it has salt not sugar.

Then there is soda, the seductive enemy of water. As if we are zombies, it tells us " water has no taste, try this new soda WAZAM!!!" pump that straight into your blood stream and brain, "what a rush!!!". We are all guilty of this manipulation that is unavoidable. Go anywhere and a vending machine is there to collect your small change gladly and hook you forever.

Kids, adults, it does not discriminate, it will own you and forever condemn good food to a slow death. 

Why spend hours preparing a meal that can be consumed in seconds???

Does China really need the US?

President Trump thumps his chest and tells the American people "guys, the Chinese are struggling worse than we are"...or something to that effect. He of course is referring to the trade war between China and the US.  An action that is supposed to stop the unfair trade balance that has heavily favored China.

But the question is....Does China really need the US? China has a strong foot hold in Africa. A continent mocked and ridiculed for being a "shithole", but has purchasing power and a consumer culture, that masks the everyday strife of living in Africa.... Not happy, go buy a new I phone....No light, no wahala....lets go buy a new car.....

Don't take our word for this, check this article out as a sample China+Africa= Kaching!

Founder of Alibaba and owner of Brooklyn Nets weighs in on NBA China problem

General Manager of NBA's Houston Rockets just caused a major stir. He tweeted his support for the protesters in Hong Kong. Hong Kong, which is not a sovereign nation and is part of China,  has been protesting for a little over month against mainland China and how they are being ruled.

To understand this fully, you need to read up on Hong Kong when it was under British rule and then handed over to China..... We can't do everything for you!!!! Google it!!!

Morey's unnecessary tweet has caused China to liquidate its very profitable relationship with the NBA and the Houston Rockets. To appease the Chinese, Houston Rockets star James Harden and the owner have apologized for the gaff. Even Morey himself has deleted the tweet and apologized.

It remains to be seen if it works.

Dinwiddie vs NBA

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie would like to convert his NBA contract into a platform that people can invest in. Sounds, innovative and trailblazing, but the NBA, who seem to be gradually morphing into the NFL, said no.

NBA sights the collective bargaining agreement that prohibits the transfer of a player's money to a third party. Dinwiddie is arguing that is not the case and is not letting go.

Should he be allowed to use his money anyway he seems fit? What happened to the NBA that was about the player and his innovation?

 Christopher Dodson wrote an informative piece on this for Forbes. Please click the link below for a better understanding.... Very educational

Disney is getting very greedy

"Why should Sony give in to Disney when they own the property and they allowed Marvel to use their property to enhance their universe? Boycott my ass, I ain't boycotting shit, liked Raimi's Spidermans better than this emo iteration of spiderman. Disney has become super greedy, how much money does Mickey Mouse need?????"                                        Yapdem

Latest rumor about Disney vs Sony ( the battle for Spiderman) 

P. S.  Spiderman will stay with the MCU for at least a movie or two, as Industry reports confirm a deal between  Sony and Disney, Marvel's parent company.

YAPDEM tv presents Who knew Chinese detergent could wash blackness away?

When Robert Downey jnr (RDJ) was rumored to be wearing " blackface" for an upcoming movie, at the time, there was an uproar.

The movie was Tropic Thunder and back then, we didn't even need to see the movie..." Iron Man in blackface??????"
Then we watched the movie and we all laughed. It was brilliant and spoke to the genius of RDJ. No other actor could have played it without going overboard.

Then we have the above Chinese commercial that is implying that a black man is filthy and dirty and just by putting him in a washing machine, with their special detergent, will be cleaned of his dirt. He comes out shinny, clean and Chinese.

If this is a satire or a skit on a Saturday Night Live type of show, its still pretty offensive. Why didn't they use other races like Arabs, Indians or other people of darker persuasions? Why the black guy? How much did they pay him to knowingly disgrace his own race?

Hope it was worth it. Hope he built a big house with the money and is happy, because how he got the money is an act of blatant disrespect for who you are and who you represent.

Paul Biya v Yoweri Museveni

Will the youth (40 and over) ever see the light of day? Will they ever be given a chance to apply what they have learned to current problems? Africa is rich in knowledge, but illiterate in application. If my cell phone is having issues and I need someone to fix the minor problem that it is having, will I go to my grandfather and say " hey pops, how do I change my phone settings to the default setting"? 

These dinosaurs of African existence have literally gone into full "vampire mode". They wont step aside for younger, more innovative leaders and won't go away. So essentially they are holding their nations hostage, without regard for future generations. 

Yoweri Museveni is almost 80 years old and yet he has been deeply involved in everything Ugandan since the 60s and 70s. He has gone from hero to.... ..the best analogy would be if Superman saved the world and just keeps hanging around...he wont let Batman play, he wont let Wonder Woman play and for sure he will not let Aquaman sniff anything above water. Uganda is known for what exactly? Chelsea Handler once used Uganda in the title for her stand up show...guess the title..........Uganda be kidding me


Paul Biya is almost 90 years old and has been Prime Minister or Prime Commander since Cameroon's independence....Are you trying to tell me that no one else in Cameroon is smart enough to rule? How can he be the only one that is qualified enough to fail? Every citizen should have a chance of running their country; they might fail, but what if....they succeed and drag Cameroon out of the stone ages...India just sent a rocket to the moon, Cameroon hasn't even sent an astronaut.

Nerds finally rule football with VAR

VAR ( Video Assist Referee) made its way into the news recently during the Premier League match up between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. With the game tied at 2-2, City scores a goal in injury time, for the win........ Not so fast,.... The refree decides to go to the monitor and take a look and see if it was a goal or not.... Upon further review, the goal has been disallowed..... Game ended 2-2, instead of a 3-2 win for City. In a season that can come down to a point, games like these hurt. For City, they got a point when they deserved 3points and for Spurs, they went from 0 points to 1 point.

Why is there a refree in the game if he still needs a computer to tell him otherwise?
Why not just play with no refs and let the nerds with computers, from the comfort of their stations, officiate the games?

What do you say?

Julian Assange arrested

The headlines will read,  Julian Assagne was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. But the real story is,  what was his exit strategy?  He was a wanted man that everyone knew where he was,  if he had no intention of running,  why not just turn yourself in and make a deal.   Instead he is dragged out of the embassy looking like Santa Claus on a bad day,  rambling like a wounded dog about to be put down. Did he think he would stay in the embassy forever?

TOP 5 impactful MCU movies (with explanation)

5.  The Incredible Hulk  (2008) TIK
Edward Norton hopefully is not hating himself for getting replaced by Mark Ruffalo. He was the HULK, especially when he played the alter ego Bruce Banner. The story was easy to follow and the action was non stop. You can argue that this movie, which was 2nd in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, set the tone for the continued growth of this universe. As soon as Tony Stark, played deliciously by Robert Downey Jnr (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!)….shows up at the end credits to talk to General "Thunderbolt" Ross about his "hulk" problem, the continuity was cemented and immortalized forever. If TIK failed, we don't get the Avengers End game.

4.  Ant Man (2015) AM
This movie should not have worked, but it did. It is the "Honey I shrunk the kids" for 2015, with a sprinkle of superhero dust. Nobody else could have pulled this movie off than Paul Rudd. An actor known for being the other dude in classics like "40 year old virgin", gets to be the man and play the same exact character he plays in every movie. This is as lighthearted as possible, even the word silly comes to mind. Thanks to a great supporting role by Michael Douglas, and you get a movie that should fail, but delivers a lot of fun.

3.  Iron Man (2008) IM
When Robert Downey Jnr RDJ was cast as Tony Stark, everybody except director Jon Favreau, thought he could play the playboy , alcoholic billionaire who becomes Iron Man. After all, RDJ had become a liability due to his numerous and well documented struggles with drug addiction, that almost derailed his career. RDJ stepped up and knocked it out of the park . He was charming, enigmatic and played the role like it was his last chance at redemption. When the movie did well, it was also a victory for life and second chances.

2.  Avengers Infinity War (2018) AIW
(SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!) 
Thanos is the big villain that promises to save us, by eliminating half the population. He also says you will thank him later. By the end of the movie, fans are in tears because a fictional character just wiped out a fictional population, along with some of our favorite heroes, by merely snapping his finger. When this megalomaniac is your villain, then you know that it will require a biblical response. It is an epic with several cameos and at this point must have the record for the most superheroes in one movie.

1.  Captain America: Winter Soldier (2011) CAWS
This movie was a spy thriller that James Bond wished he could star in today. The subterfuge was so hot, you could cut it with a knife. Chris Evans is at his best as the captain from another time, out from the cold, dropped in a modern era, to fight for truth, justice and the American way...He played it the way Superman was supposed to be played..., lovably naïve but powerful enough to overcome whatever you threw at him.

Then there is that old Hollywood icon, from "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid" and "The Sting" and my mom's favorite " The way we were" and the underrated " Spy Game"...….(drum roll please) ….Robert Redford. This old man acted circles around everybody and ….

(SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!)…. he is revealed to be the villain. who has secretly been working for Hydra for decades. Powerful and scene stealing. But wait, there's more.... Captain America's best  friend, Bucky, thought for dead, has been resurrected as a super powered assassin and only Captain America can put him down or save him.

Will Gucci Mane change his name?

In case you missed it,  overrated designer Gucci introduced it's new sweater.
Give it a second to sink in..........  Gucci and several closeted racists would have you believe that this is just a fashion statement and has nothing to do with something like this.........

 A clear image of a white man in blackface portraying a black man as a clown or less than human.  Wide eyed and a caricature used as a tool to remind the next generation and continue the vicious cycle of racism.  So our question is will rapper Gucci Mane change his name in protest or will he continue to be blissfully ignorant?

Why democracy in Nigeria is a waste of time?

This list is in no particular order...…

1. The current President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is also the Minister of Petroleum, because he is the only Nigerian that is incorruptible.... because he told us so. 

2. A person could go into a coma 20 years ago, wake up and the same candidates that the person remembered 20 years ago, will still be contending for leadership positions. i.e. Obasanjo, Buhari, Atiku

3. To live in Nigeria you need to produce your own electricity, because the government or state does not see the reason why they should provide it. But every candidate will promise they will.

4. If you are travelling to Nigeria for the first time, you better not land in Lagos past 9pm and you better have somebody pick you up at the airport. No candidate can guarantee your safety,

5. Almost all goods in Nigeria are priced in the thousands....10, 0000 , 20, 0000 etc.

6. Billionaires are many, but no accountability about how the money was made and nobody cares, as long as he is rich.

7. Other countries have female Presidents, Prime Ministers. Other countries have leaders in their 40s, filled with youthful enthusiasm and modern ideas. Nigerian candidates are old men who still think a woman's best rooms are bedroom and kitchen.

8. In a shock to no one, the Presidential election which was set for February 16th has been postponed till February 23rd......or until the desired result is achieved.
