LMAO! North Korea's internet is down. You go, USA!

If you've been following the Sony, North Korea and the US government saga then you should know what this is about. But let me give a brief summary because I'm about to board a flight.

Sony Pictures released a movie called The Interview, a comedy about a fictional assassination of North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un.. North Korean didn't find it funny and hacked into Sony's computers, rendering thousands of computers inoperable and forced Sony to take its entire computer network offline. That wasn't enough, they then threatened terror attack on US citizens if Sony doesn't cancel showing the movie, forcing Sony to pull the interview from theaters and losing almost $200m. Then the US govt got involved and told Sony to go ahead and release the movie, that they don't take lightly to threats and promised to retaliate for the attack on Sony. It looks like they've kept their to promise. North Korea is currently offline. Lol
"Internet connectivity between North Korea and the outside world is currently suffering one of its worst outages in recent memory, suggesting that the country may be enduring a mass cyber attack a few days after President Obama warned the US would launch a "proportional response" to North Korea's hack against Sony
North Korea, which has four official networks connecting the country to the Internet -- all of which route through China -- began experiencing intermittent problems yesterday and today went completely black, according to Doug Madory, director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research in Hanover, New Hampshire." Bloomberg reports.
I find this so hilarious! Moral of the story, don't mess with the US. Will be MIA for a few hours... traveling out of the country. See you guys soon!

Nairobi by Sujimoto

Article written by Sujimoto...
I braced myself for the worst owing to the unpleasant flight experience courtesy of a humid flight induced by the worn out aircraft to Kenya. I have never been in an aeroplane where I feel like I'm in a bakery in Badagry! For a second I thought I was in a flying “danfo” (commercial bus in Lagos), but arriving at the Kenyatta international airport blew my mind. Things started looking up. The efficiency of their immigration officials is truly commendable and I caught myself subconsciously comparing the airport and its services with some other international airports in Africa.

Photos: Another Florida police officer killed

Charles Kondek (pictured left), a 45 year old police officer and a 17-year veteran of the local police department was shot and killed yesterday Dec. 21st in Tarpon Springs, Florida, by 23 year old Marco Antonio Parilla Jr (pictured right), a fugitive wanted for a parole violation.

The married father of six was killed while responding to a noise complaint at an apartment complex. According to reports, Kondek arrived at the complex and saw Marco confronting another man with a gun in his waistline. When Marco spotted the officer, he immediately opened fire, killing the officer.

He then stole a car and ran over the cop he'd just shot but he then lost control of the car and hit a power pole. That was where he was apprehended by back up police.

Marco later told police he killed Kondek because he did not want to return to prison. He has now been jailed on first-degree murder charges.

Tank's message to fans after nobody buys his new album will make you feel bad for him

US singer Tank (I'm sure some of you are like, who's Tank? lol.. but he's been around for a while) released his 6th studio album recently and only 16 thousands fans bought it in its first two weeks and because of that, his record label decided not to 'waste' more money on promotion or shoot any video.

A visibly upset Tank took to his instagram page to vent at his fans for not supporting him, saying "Maybe I should have been born white then all my music would go straight to mainstream.”

Tank was so bitter about the outcome of this album that he claims he spent months to put together that he told fans they will never get another 'real' album from him. "Please enjoy my last real R&B album ‘Stronger’ cause you'll never get another one!”. What he wrote after the cut...

Let's talk about this N21billion that was raised for GEJ's campaign

So on Saturday Dec. 20th, PDP Governors, Senators, Business moguls, technocrats, multinationals and others donated a total of N21.27billion to support Jonathan's re-election campaign. (read here).

What happened is normal and done everywhere in the world...presidential candidates gather friends and associates to donate towards their campaign. But what I don't get is a private individual like Tunde Ayeni, the chairman of SKYE Bank donating N2billion. So, if you donate that amount to the president, is it for something you will get later from his administration or it's just goodwill?

Dear LIB readers: I do not want my father to walk me down the aisle

From a female LIB reader
I am about to make a very important decision and I would like to have your candid opinion on it. Its regarding my forthcoming wedding and me wanting to do my father the honor of walking me down the aisle or giving my hand out in marriage. We have had a very distant Father-Daughter relationship due to the kind of torture he put my mother through while me and my brother were young and how the maltreatment affected my mother so much she developed hypertension and died when I was 14 and my brother 9.

Why Pay So Much Monthly Just For Premium Satellite TV?

Since the inception of Satellite TV in Nigeria we have always had to pay through our noses to watch some of favorite TV stations like MTVBase, Nigezie, BBCWorld News, Nickelodeon, Aljazeera etc.

The most frustrating part is that more than 80% of us are never at home to watch TV. Yet at the end of the month your TV subscription would be over (whether you put on your TV for the whole month or not) and to have access for the next month "Maga must pay".

Don't you wish you just paid way less for access to the same TV Stations?
