Se dipendesse da voi ……

What’s up?

First off, I’m proud to inform you that we have over 200 readers on this blog (clap), the endorsements and advertising deals are soon popping in!

We have also got more readers leaving comments, yeeeeii…..although this numebr is still small, I know this because I have enough time to reply to all of them.

If it was up to you……..;

If it was up to you, would you go to school? Well I think I’d definitely go only when I really have nothing else to do and depending on a particular stage of my life. Then may be I’d grow up and regret for the rest of my life or may be not, may be I’d make people who promptly attended school regret for the rest of their lives or may be not.

If you devoted all the time you put into education to a particular skill, would you be perfect at it by now? would you be richer? would you be happier?

How many people do you know have made it huge in their lives without going through the typical education system? I’ll tell you some;

1.   Carlos Slim Helu – The 2nd richest person in the world with a net worth of USD 60 Billion, his education status says N/A, which means not applicable. He owns a wireless Telephone company most probably bigger than MTN Africa and his education background is unclear.

2. Bill Gates – The 3rd Richest person in the world with a net worth of USD 58 Billion, he is only 3rd richest by the way because he used some of his ka money to merge with Yahoo in a bid to dominate the internet world, sadly for him his share value fucked him up and dropped by 15% since the Merger. His Education status says University Drop Out.

3. Ingvar Kamprad – The 7th Richest person in the world with a net worth of USD 31 Billion, He peddled matches, fish, pens, Christmas cards and other items by bicycle as a teenager. Started selling furniture in 1947. To show you how stupid and hopeless you corporate fuckers are, Mr. Kamprad here avoids wearing suits, flies economy class and frequents cheap restaurants (That’s a bad mother fucker right there) and guess what, last year he was awarded the Global Economy Prize by the University of Kiel for his contributions to society (You have nothing on him). His Education status says N/A.

4. KP Singh – The 8th Richest person in the world with a net worth of USD 30 Billion, Singh is now the world’s richest real estate baron! A former army officer, known as K.P., he joined his father-in-law’s Delhi Land & Finance in 1961 (Typical target worker). Singh later built his own city called DLF in a place called  Gurgaon(India), this was his showpiece township on the outskirts of Delhi (Bad mother fucker). Over time, he transformed it into one of India’s biggest real estate developers. Now boys and girls, if you are strategic enough, get a Visa to India and pick up an interest in golf, you know why? i’ll tell you why, this bad mother fucker here is a  keen golfer, he now leaves son Rajiv and daughter Pia to run the business. Guys are to Pia as Girls are to Rajiv (Fuck homos!). His Education status says N/A.

5. Karl Albrecht – He is the world’s 10th and German’s Richest man. After World War II, Karl and his younger brother, Theo, developed their mother’s corner grocery store into discount supermarket giant Aldi, which now has more than 8,000 stores and $67 billion in sales and they didn’t need University degrees or such shit to figure it out. Little known about this bad mother fucker other than that he apparently raises orchids and plays golf (Fuck soccer, I am becoming a golfer now).

Now, when we look at the list of the Top 10 richest people in the world, we see that one of them dropped out of university, four probably never stepped into school and the other five went to school (Most of them inherited family businesses though). There are very many wealthy people who have made it without school or education, could be even more than those that have made it because of education, some have even become presidents (Idi Amin Dada,UG ), Mayors (Nasser Ntege Ssebagala,UG) and some have even done much greater things in these positions than those who went to school.

Now if I can ask you again (of course I can, it’s my blog), if it was up to you, would you go to school, from kindergarten to high school and all the way to University or even sometimes go ahead and do Masters???

School is good, no doubt, but in my view it is over-rated, I mean if  a person is naturally good at something, why not take time to perfect it, instead of being taken through a system that will eventually fuck up your natural abilities,to end up behind a computer from 8am to 6pm sometimes to 7pm, 8pm, 9pm…. from Mon to Fri, Sat, Sun…..Every week, depending on where you work?

People who go to school all the way up to University should be the ones with no viable natural abilities, so that they can be trained in areas like Accounts (Miserable fuckers), Finance (They think they are lucky but they are the biggest losers, hard on money that’s not theirs), Human Resource (Fuck those snitching bastards), Operations (what the fuck do they operate, fuckers) to go and manage  wealthy people’s businesses.

If it was up to me, I wouldn’t have spent that much time going to school, all I needed was basic training in English Grammar, Mathematics, Some History and a little bit of Religious studies, for not more than 9 years, and I’d be good to go!

A big Fuck you! to all the corporate idiots and intellectual fuckers, especially those who will still go and do masters in some shit after reading this, FUCK YOU!!!

Todays Special Feature:

Dar-Es-Salaam;

Formerly Mzizima, is the largest city in Tanzania. It is also the country’s richest city and a regionally important economic centre. Dar es Salaam is actually an administrative province within Tanzania, and consists of three local government areas or administrative districts: Kinondoni to the north, Ilala in the center of the region, and Temeke to the south. The Dar es Salaam Region had a population of 2,497,940 as of the official 2002 census. Though Dar es Salaam lost its official status as capital city to Dodoma in 1974, it remains the centre of the permanent central government bureaucracy and continues to serve as the capital for the surrounding Dar es Salaam Region.

Downtown Dar es Salaam includes many small businesses, many of which are run by traders and proprietors whose families originated from the Middle East and Indian sub-continent — areas of the world with which the settlements of the Tanzanian coast have had long-standing trading relations. During the daytime the heavy weight of traffic, office workers, busy merchants, street vendors and restaurateurs of the area lend it a frenetic and slightly claustrophobic air. However, after nightfall the area is relatively quiet as much of the city’s nightlife is located in more residential districts away from the city’s mainly commercial centre.

The sprawling suburbs furthest from the city centre are generally populated by Tanzanians of African descent, with the exception of Oyster Bay, where there is a large population of foreign expatriates. Although there is no racial hostility, the various ethnic communities of Dar es Salaam do not tend to mix heavily.

Due in part to the growth of the expatriate community and the increasing importance of tourism, the number of international restaurants has risen very rapidly over recent years. The city now offers a surprisingly rich and internationalised diversity of cuisine, ranging from traditional Tanzanian barbecue style options such as “Nyama Choma” (roasted meat) and “Mishkaki” (Shish Kabob – usually barbecued and served with salt and various hot peppers on the side) and the long-established traditional Indian and Zanzibari cuisine, to options from all corners of the globe including, Chinese, Thai, Turkish, Italian, and Japanese food.

There is also a lively music scene in Dar es Salaam which is divided among several styles. The longest standing segment is live dance bands such as Kilimanjaro, Twanga Pepeta and FM Academia.Taarab which was traditionally strong in Zanzibar has also found a niche but remains small compared both to dance music and “Bongo Flava“, a broad category that represents the Tanzanian take on Hip Hop and R&B, which has quickly become the most popular locally produced music. This type of music is especially strong among the youth and it seems that its pull is reducing the interest in performing and hearing dance music. Songs by artists such as Ferooz name check Dar districts such as Sinza. Traditional music, which locally is used to refer to tribal music is still performed but typically only on family oriented occasions such as weddings.

This Rap scene has been present and growing for the past ten years as City life has drawn much of the youth in surrounding areas have made the trek into a more urban lifestyle in search of a new better beginning. [9]

Being situated so close to the equator and the warm Indian ocean, the city experiences generally tropical climatic conditions, typified by hot and humid weather throughout much of the year. Dar es Salaam features a tropical wet and dry climate, with two different rainy seasons. Annual rainfall is approximately 1,100 mm (43 in) and in a normal year there are two distinct rainy seasons: “the long rains”, which fall during April and May, and “the short rains”, which fall during October and November.

Don’t be fooled by this somewhat fucked up weather, Dar is the shit! If you ever want to go to a not so expensive holiday destination, Dar is your city.

The people are extremely friendly, the food is super, the beaches have pure white sand, the biggest population are moslems so there’s more than enough alcohol for every focussed person like yours truly……Dar is the shit.

See pictures below:

Like I always say, no one is paying me for this shit so bye.

Peace!

Arthorious.

  1. yaeah..am the first :)damn school….i know am noy getting any richer even with my masters…he he he….dar es salam…i like,its really beautiful..arthorious you have out done your self…given me some thing to think abt

  2. oh dear…not again, I would like to say that i agree with you on education but i DONT…in fact i feel so strongly about this that at this moment, i cant express all my feeling at once…so might have to come back and rant some more. First of all, yes, you can make it if you never went to school, of course you can….just as you can smoke 40 cigs a day and never get cancer, or binge drink every night and never destroy your liver (cough cough). The fact is, you’ve listed 10 rich people in the world who have made it without much education or even no education, but there are over 6 billion people on this planet, we need to be educated, not just to earn alot of money, but to develop our world. Education is not going to make you rich, but its going to give you the knowledge of how things work, not every1 has got a natural ability, and if you have it, how can you use it to its maximum if you havent got the knowledge?….as an experiment, why dont you go to the street, pick up someone who has never gone to school, ask them to read this and comment….can they read? can they write? have they even got an opion? can they tell you what their natual ability is? do they know how to go out there and get what they want? do not take what you’ve got for granted, you said “if it was up to me….” well its not because the decision is made by our parents and i trust them to make the best decision….discuss 🙂

    • Hehehee, it’s nice to have back ibs, it’s even nicer to know that your determination to fuck with my opinions is undeterred!
      About your uncalculated statistics of there being over 6 million educated rich people in the world…… you will realize that I took a sample group of people (Top world’s richest), checked out their education backgrounds and out of 10, I got 5 that weren’t that much educated, that is a 50% possibility my friend, perhaps I should have continued to check the out the rest in order to have a bigger picture.

      Of course we need education and if you carefully read my article I said it, everyone should have a certain degree of education, no doubt, however my problem comes when education stands in the way of what you would been best at and instead tries to impart some sort of knowledge of stuff you were not cut out for. If you have an eye for art & designs and your imagination can take you places for then why don’t you work on that natural ability and grow it into some substantial instead of sitting in class for 20year and end up being an accountant? You will be happiest doing something that your whole being was naturally cut out for. My argument is that if you cannot see any viable natural ability within you, then by all means you need guidance (education) such that other people can assess you (examinations & tests) and decide for you what you are good at. Then they will employ you and make you work for them for I don’t know how long. They will also go ahead and set for you your limits (targets) and also decide what kind of success you’ll archive in your lifetime. Then when you will grow old beyond their favorable age, they will lay you off and look for another victim. Eventually you will die and the only measurable success you will leave behind is an ordinary house, car and maybe some kids.

      Of course education is not going to make you rich, neither will knowledge, what will make you rich is wisdom in something and this you can’t get from school. You need some bit of education for guidance and to generally point you in the right direction and to also assist you to be able to read and write.

      One of the best architectural structures in the world was the Egyptian Pyramid, this world wonder was built with perfection which even some of the modern technology can’t cope with, did it’s architects and engineers first go to class? No!
      Of course the decision of going to School is made by our parents, not to say that they made a wrong decision, but we should not get stuck in the traditional schooling system, we might miss out on archiving great things.
      I mean when is the last time you heard a theory like “The law of demand states that, if all other factors remain equal, the higher the price of a good, the less people will demand that good” OR “Resources flow to where they are most paid” being invented? What have you invented? And you are EDUCATED!

  3. “To show you how stupid and hopeless you corporate fuckers are”, why so much beef?
    But seriously Ingvar Kamprad is spot on (from what you’ve written about him). It doesn’t matter how many degrees u have or what schools u went to, all that matters is how much money u have.
    And these corporate fuckers that are now so common in Kampala are just a bunch of broke indebted fuckers who can’t survive without their jobs.

    • Fowler5, It’s not beef, it’s reality.
      I used the words stupid, hopeless and fuckers because I couldn’t think of any better words to describe these fools.

  4. i really like your blog……this semi-debate had just made my morning……now i fell like i’m having a slightly more meaningful day……….yeah that’s how bad my day is!!!!
