ESSAYS — and some rattling rants worth reading

Life as a Cowboy Programmer (April 30, 2010 @Hanwa, Zaria) Cowboys have an independent (and sometimes reckless) character. They are lonesome, they take risks, they solve problems on-the-fly using whatever is available, they are heroic and generally do things their own way. . . How to Live to be 200 Years (By Stephen Leacock, 1910, Canada) From Stephen Leacock's humorous essays, "Literary Lapses", comes this hilarious masterpiece. . . The Damned Human Race (Mark Twain, "Letters From the Earth") Mark Twain's take on the dark nature of man as a lower animal, whose thoughts and actions not only ridicules it's own species but also endangers earth as a whole. . . I Love Pleasure, So What? (Dec. 11 1999, @State Library, Ilorin) To fulfil the purpose of life and realize the goal of existence, we must be bold enough to openly love the goodness and pleasure of being alive, and strong enough to feel no guilt whatsoever in enjoying the goodness and pleasure of being alive. . . Polytechnic Days (September 1st, 2001, @GRA, Ilorin) What does education mean to you? I contend here that true education is defined not by contact with books that require formal pedantry alone, but by variety of experience, which tampers temperament. . . Once More To The Polytechnic (February 2004, @Home, GRA, Ilorin) In this essay, I try to put mad things, mad people and mad circumstances in a revealing perspective; prompting you to take a closer look at some of the "normal" things you and other "sane" people in the society do everyday. On Education (July 4th, 2001, @GRA, Ilorin) What does education mean to you? I contend here that true education is defined not by contact with books that require formal pedantry alone, but by variety of experience, which tampers temperament. . . You Could Be Mad, Too! (Jan. 15 1998, @State Library, Ilorin) In this essay, I try to put mad things, mad people and mad circumstances in a revealing perspective; prompting you to take a closer look at some of the "normal" things you and other "sane" people in the society do everyday. Errors of Yesterday (Sep 15-16, 2001 @NDA, Kaduna) . . . and all ther other silly blunders not worth crying over! Faults to Ignore (2001 @Kwara Poly, Ilorin) If you were to be eugenically "doped" or scientifically "designed" before conception and birth, you'd probably be the most perfect human being on earth; but your conception and birth was faulty, or was it? My Death Song (April 23 2011 @Dogarawa, Zaria) From the moment you are born you begin to die. You think that you're living, but you're not living. . . you are dying! So the question is "How are you dying?" Is it a very long, meaningful, purposeful, and spectacular death, or an ordinary flop? Aristocratic Education (By Stephen Leacock, 1910, Canada) Another humourous blast from Stephen Leacock's classic collection in "Literary Lapses". . . The Legendary Tecumseh – Panther Across the Sky! The Hero in You (2000 @Kwara Poly, Ilorin) Life does not give you what you deserve, but what you demand! It is time to wake that hero up now and start demanding for your fulfilment in life straight away!
