Men, Women And Money Appeal

Published

on

Women are the same sharing the same fear, hopes and dreams. This proves exceptionally true when it has to do with their perception of their dream men.

One thing stands out. Women irrespective of their religious and cultural difference, admire men who have money. They seem to believe a man with money can easily find his way. Apart from money, they rated behaviour above looks.

Although they played down  on the physical looks, a man need neither be a Mr. universe nor an ape. But it seems an unattractive man stands a better chance of winning a very beautiful woman’s heart if he has the money than a poor handsome man. Tonye Philips, married with two kids said, “the man doesn’t have to be rich. He must be comfortable with potentials to be rich afterwards.”

Simply said, “he must have Adamma Cash.” Gladys Brown who is into a steady relationship was more explicit. She said, “He should have serious potentials of being wealthy”, she measures this potentials from his attitude to work. Gladys believes that if a man takes his job, which is his means of livelihood, seriously, it shows that he can take care of his family.

Closely related to money is ambition in a man. Women can’t stand men who simply float along. Biobele said, “a man must be ambitious, Marian share her views. Betty David said a man must have a sense of direction.

From women’s point of view the behaviour of a man is very, very important. Betty David, admires an honest, down to earth and an understanding man. Marian said a man should not be afraid to show love, beloved women, appreciate the little gestures that go with love but do not see it as a sign of weakness as most men are wont to believe.

In addition, Tonye Philips said a man must be confident and capable of remaining calm especially in tough situation.

From Bridget Briggs eyes, a man should know how to take care of the needs of a woman. She said it is indecent for a man to wait for a woman to make request of him.

Although looks in a man did not take a prime place, it is necessary for a man to look attractive to woman, abhor, fat, flaps and folds in men. Marian captures the pictures . When she said, “I admire a perfect broad shoulder, slim waist man. But, he needs to look like Mike Tyson.”

Christy Miebaka said almost the same thing, “A man should have a well built body and not fat.”

As part of his looks, the hair is very, very important.

Today, women adore fashionable men. Men who have an eye for what is beautiful and neat such as a low cropped hair. Details such as his eyebrow, moustache, beards and

underarms must be very neat.

Betty David, spoke against dirty fingers and toes they are repulsive. On neatness Obika

who is married with a child said a man must be neat up to his pants, she said, “Some men

do not wash there underwears, socks etc.”

A well groomed man knows it. He should be clean and definitely walk with confidence.

Philip who is a devoted Christian said the bottom line is a well packaged man whom the woman can respect and be proud of.

Amogst the things women find hard to tolerate in a man are foul smell, unkempt look, womanising boastful or idle talk attitude. Chrity Miebaka said, “I can’t stand a man with body odour, or bad breath. Men who are too full of themselves, fault finders, wives beaters and mummy’s boys aren’t my type”.

Gladys also detests strong attitude to the extended family. She explained that in a relationship, the man must price her higher than the extended family. She simply said, “I should be first not the extended family.

Besides, Gladys said “ a man should act more rather than talks”, talking too much sometimes tends to nurture gossip.

Briggs Bridget agreed on this, in this category are men who carry their shoulder in a shoblish way. Acting as if they are better than others. Women can’t stand them.

Biobele said she finds extreme jealousy hard to cope with. Although a man needs to display little traits of jealousy. When it gets to extreme, Biobele said it can be suffocating.

Gladys does not find dirty fingers, toes and seat stained under arms appealing. Another turn off is a man who wears loose under pants, ironically, Biobele finds men without under wear exciting. In the eyes of Uche Sam a man who could not express himself fluently is a turn off. Other women were not different in their views.

Above all, women find an athiest a turn off.

Phoebe desired a man with the fear of God. Tonye feels same I don’t like a man that is not Godly, A man without the fear of God is devoid of conscience to take good care of a lady. Although most women shied away from the physical side of the relationship Tonye spoke on behalf of all. When she stressed that a man that is not good is bed in unaccepted.

Turn ons on Women are as follows money, neatness, fine body and caring attitude.

Turn off can be excess fat, unkept looks, nagging and womanising.

So women the choice is all yours.

Good luck.

What to Look for in a Marijuana Smoking Device

Published

on

Though there are various ways to enjoy marijuana, smoking remains the most popular way to get high. This method also happens to have the most devices available.

When buying a smoking device, you must get a high-quality product. Not all apparatuses are made the same way and provide the same doses. Various studies prove that the device you use is equally important as the weed itself and can make the overall smoking experience better.

Buying a suitable smoking device is all about understanding your preferences and tailoring accessories accordingly.

The Main Types of Pipes

There are many ways for cannabis users to smoke marijuana. A hand pipe, also known as a dry pipe or bowl, is a convenient and easy method to smoke weed, especially for people who occasionally smoke. Featuring a small chamber, a hand pipe delivers harsher hits than other types of marijuana pipes.

On the other hand, a water pipe or a bong is ideal for experienced users. From small designs to large, water pipes, unlike hand pipes, contain specific chambers to hold water and deliver a smoother experience.

The one-hitter is a tiny and discrete pipe designed for a single inhalation or, as the name suggests, one hit. One-hitters are popular because they help users control the dosage of their marijuana intake.

And then, there are portable vape or vape pens that offer a smoke-free experience. Vape pens are a discreet way of getting your fix when on the go.

How To Choose A Good Dry Pipe

Whether you are looking to get high at home or while hanging out with friends, pipes make consuming cannabis much easier and quicker than packing blunts or rolling joints. As they are practical, every marijuana user must have at least one good dry pipe. With so many different pipes available at various price ranges, you should consider multiple factors to find a suitable dry pipe.

The first thing you should consider is size. The size directly translates to portability. For those who travel a lot, a pipe smaller in size might be ideal. In contrast, if you plan to use the dry pipe as a tabletop centerpiece, you might want something bigger.

Additionally, smoking pipes are made from different materials. While commonly made from glass, marijuana smoking pipes can also be made from wood, metal, or ceramic. Typically, glass pipes are the best option for marijuana smokers as you will be treated to smooth and flavorful smoke regardless of the strain.

You should also take into consideration your budget when looking to buy a marijuana dry pipe. Remember that a low price doesn’t always translate to a low-quality product. You will still be able to land some great deals if you look around.

How To Choose A Good Water Pipe

To find a good water pipe, size is the first thing you should consider. If you are passing the bong with your friends, a larger bong might be a better option. On the other hand, if it is for more personal use, choose a smaller one.

Secondly, think about the material. Cannabis users often prefer glass as it provides the cleanest and the purest-tasting hits. However, it can easily break and is usually pricey. So, for a rowdier situation, an acrylic water pipe might be a better option.

How To Choose A Good One Hitter

If you are looking to buy a one-hitter, the pipe’s material is the primary concern as one-hitters are all generally the same size. The material can affect flavor and durability, so you must choose wisely. The common materials used to make one-hitters are glass, acrylic, and metal.

One-hitters made from glass offer an unparalleled flavor, while those made from acrylic and metal can make the hit less flavorful.

Furthermore, one-hitters highlight various features like a removable bowl, self-ashing mechanism, design that allows for easier cleaning, and heat resistance.

How To Choose A Good Portable Vape

Unlike desktop vapes, portable vapes are easy to carry around and use discreetly. What’s more, they tend to be less expensive and versatile, making them an ideal option for beginners. When looking for a portable vape pen, you should consider if they are made for vaping dry herb or wax.

The next thing you should consider is battery life. This factor is vital if you are on the go without access to a device charger. A few vaporizers come with external batteries, while others have long battery lives.

Furthermore, you should consider things like temperature control and the type of heating—conduction or convection. Also, see if the vape pen is easy to clean or not. Lastly, look at the price. As you will be holding onto your vaporizer for a while, it is a good idea to invest in a quality product from a certified seller like WeedSmart, a Canadian marijuana dispensary.

Explore the Arena of Marijuana Smoking Devices

With a wide array of marijuana smoking devices available on the market, it might be daunting to decide the one that’s best for you. The right choice for you will depend on your needs and what you think might be the best for you. If you don’t like a specific device’s feel, you can always look for other options.

Jack And The Beanstalk

Published

on

Once upon a time, there lived a poor widow and her son, Jack. One day, Jack’s mother told him to sell their only cow. Jack went to the market and on the way, he met a man who wanted to buy his cow. Jack asked, “What will you give me in return for my cow?” The man answered, “I will give you five magic beans!” Jack took the magic beans and gave the man the cow. But when he reached home,  Jack’s mother was very angry. She said, “You fool! He took away your cow and gave you some beans!” She threw the beans out of the window. Jack was very sad and went to sleep without dinner.
The next day, when Jack woke up in the morning and looked out of the window, he saw that a huge beanstalk had grown from his magic beans! He climbed up the beanstalk and reached a kingdom in the sky. There lived a giant and his wife. Jack went inside the house and found the giant’s wife in the kitchen. Jack said, “Could you please give me something to eat? I am so hungry!” The kind wife gave him bread and some milk.
While he was eating, the giant came home. The giant was very big and looked very fearsome. Jack was terrified and went and hid inside. The giant cried, “Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!” The wife said, “There is no boy in here!” So, the giant ate his food and then, went to his room. He took out his sacks of gold coins, counted them and kept them aside. Then,  he went to sleep. In the night, Jack crept out of his hiding place, took one sack of gold coins and climbed down the beanstalk. At home, he gave the coins to his mother. His mother was very happy and they lived well for sometime.
He climbed the beanstalk and went to the giant’s house again. Once again, Jack asked the giant’s wife for food, but while he was eating, the giant returned. Jack leapt up in fright and went and hid under the bed. The giant cried, “Fee-fifo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!” The wife said, “There is no boy in here!” The giant ate his food and went to his room. There, he took out a hen. He shouted, “Lay!” and the hen laid a golden egg. When the giant fell asleep, Jack took the hen and climbed down the beanstalk. Jack’s mother was very happy with him.
After some days, Jack once again climbed the beanstalk and went to the giant’s castle. For the third time, Jack met the giant’s wife and asked for some food. Once again, the giant’s wife gave him bread and milk. But while Jack was eating, the giant came home. “Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!” cried the giant. “Don’t be silly! There is no boy in here!” said his wife.
The giant had a magical harp that could play beautiful songs. While the giant slept, Jack took the harp and was about to leave. Suddenly, the magic harp cried, “Help master! A boy is stealing me!” The giant woke up and saw Jack with the harp. Furious, he ran after Jack. But Jack was too fast for him. He ran down the beanstalk and reached home. The giant followed him down. Jack quickly ran inside his house and fetched an axe. He began to chop the beanstalk. The giant fell and died.
Jack and his mother were now very rich and they lived happily ever after.
