Tyler Durden's picture


When Nigeria, yes "spam email Nigeria", is getting out of Dodge, it's game over. From Bloomberg: Nigeria May Reduce Euro Holding to Minimize European Risk.

We have nothing to add.

OK, but you have failed to include the variables "blood alcohol level" and degree of "blue balls".

I contend that if blood alcohol levels are high enough and balls are deep blue in hue, that nothing would be off limits for our viewing pleasure...

Nigeria has a TON of money.  They are likely approaching their peak oil extraction rate, but they are a long way from precipitous fall.

The photo that accompanies the post it seems unfair and even racist. Beyond that, I thinkthe news is more important than most people realize. Like it or not, the world is changing.While ALL Europe faces a major economic crisis, and here, in U.S. we are struggling to solve our problems, other countries are living their best years.
A few months ago trip to Asia and breathe plenty. Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and India are showing impressive growth. In April I was in South America and found that Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru are progressing rapidly. Know what the government deficit in Chile, Colombia and Peru?. Zero ... Yes, zero. Have fiscal surplus. Do you know that debt is the size of their government? ... Zero, in effect, have no debt.
The world is changing very quickly. Those who realize, may benefit. Those who do notrealize ... are condemned.

This is a traditional "afternoon tea" ceremony in Nigeria. The three young lads are prepping the cucumber and fish sandwiches while warming-up milk for the tea. The British introduced them to this tradition during the colonial period.

Yeah the Lads are moving to more prosperous locales such as Burkino Fasso and Mali.

This is the annual Nigerian 'Cucumber Hokey Pokey' festival. 

The single indvidual must jump over the other two, without using his hands (thus the holding of the fishes).  He mustn't spill

the 'milk' containers.  If his towel drops, he wins, however.

Dear Nigerian Scammer,


I am a Greek Prince desperately trying to get my money out of the country but because of restrictions on the amount of money one can take out of Greece I'm worried my vast wealth will disappear when my country is booted out of the Euro.

I need you to let me transfer the sum of 38,000,000 Euro into your bank account as a matter of great urgency.  I am willing to pay you 75% of this deposit in return for your help.

If you agree to help, please send me your bank account details and your sisters vital statistics.  You will have to send me the transfer fees of 76,000,000 Euro or the bank won't put the money in your account.  Do this immediately, my terminal illness will prevent me completing the transfer if you don't send me all your money now.

Please hurry, my fortune is vaporising quickly.

I Love the site... but it does appear questionable in taste this one.. it is not entirely clear to me, apart from being some idiocy that us whites are also equally capable of, in fact as the masters of the economic system who just handed the whole handgrenade to a black Pres to hold when it blows up... I would say far more damaging than a bit of drunken clowning about in downtown Lagos..

Black people are hardly a minority in Nigeria. Christians are a minority there and they are being slaughtered for it.

"the masters of the economic system who just handed the whole handgrenade to a black Pres to hold when it blows up.."

I actually hadn't looked at it from that perspective before. It would be an excellent way to ensure dumbass American voters will never elect another negro...


Edited to add: And now that I think about it, it also possibly explains why Mittens is just going through the motions and not trying to actually get elected. This gets more plausible by the minute.
