Tiger Woods a victim of domestic abuse?

Tiger Woods, 33, was transported to the hospital early Friday morning after crashing his cadillac escalade into a fire hydrant near his residence in Windermere, Fla., outside Orlando. It was only yesterday that reports of his affair with another woman hit the headlines.

Below is the story of what actually happened according to news media TMZ.

Tiger Woods did not suffer facial lacerations from a car accident. They were inflicted by his wife, Elin Nordegren — according to a conversation Woods had Friday after the accident. Tiger has yet to be formally interviewed by the Florida Highway Patrol — that should happen this afternoon. But we’re told Tiger had a conversation Friday — with a non-law enforcement type — detailing what went down before his Escalade hit a fire hydrant.

We’re told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We’re told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV — but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club. We’re told Woods became “distracted,” thought the vehicle was stopped, and looked to see what had happened. At that point the SUV hit the fire hydrant and then hit a tree.

We’re also told Woods had said during the conversation Friday he had been taking prescription pain medication for an injury, which could explain why he seemed somewhat out of it at the scene.

This is the woman Tiger was allegedly dating, but she's since denied the affair.

 Domestic violence against men is not prevalent...but I have a feeling this incident with Tiger and his wife (if the story is true) will give it more prominence now.

If he really did cheat, that would have made her extremely mad...but mad enough to pick up a golf club?
What's your thoughts on this?

VP Goodluck Jonathan under pressure to resign

Story by Punch Newspapers

There were strong indications on Friday that the Vice President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, may be under intense pressure from some of the country‘s power brokers to resign.Those behind the move, sources say, want to ensure that the delicate power sharing arrangement between the North and the South, which some military chiefs and politicians agreed upon in 1998, is preserved. Under the zoning arrangement agreed upon by the politicians of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, power is expected to rotate between the two regions at the end of two presidential terms.

Saturday Punch investigations on Friday revealed that the pressure, which started when the President made his first medical trip abroad in 2007, increased this week after the President departed for Saudi Arabia for another round of treatment.

The plan of those pressurising the VP, Saturday Punch learnt, is to create a situation where he would resign for the Senate President, David Mark, to take over for three months and then organise elections, in the event that the President is unable to complete his term.

However, at about the time that Saturday Punch completed its investigations on Friday, the Presidency issued a statement saying that Nigeria‘s president will not resign despite currently undergoing treatment in Saudi Arabia.

Thoughts on this?

Is silence really the best answer?

I was accused of doing something...that I didn't do by the way. But instead of defending myself, I decided to ignore it.

Now I'm told the reason I kept quiet was because I was guilty. My accuser could not understand why I would not defend myself if I was innocent. I really am innocent...lol.

You all know I talk a lot but I just decided to shut it this time 'cos I believe that some things are best left alone, especially if it will lead to more anger and confusion. I also knew that whatever I said would be repeated and the nice thing about silence is that it can't be repeated...abi?

But my silence was misinterpreted. Now I'm told that if I had explained my own side of it all, it would have eased a lot of tension, and brought a calm end to the problem. (Hmmm, you are damned if you talk. You are damned if you don't talk).

So here's my question: When you are having problems with someone or you are accused of saying or doing something you didn't say or do, or they write some horrible story about you in the tabloid...you know negative stuff like that...what's the best reaction?

Silence because it's golden?
Speaking up because you give yourself a voice ... and be heard!

Kaduna prostitutes offer free sex...lol

The kind of nonsense you read sometimes..;)
Read the story below and be amused.

Kaduna prostitutes offer free sex
-As male prostitutes take over business
-Pay one round, get one free
-To form prostitutes union

Female prostitutes in Kaduna have commenced a two month “free sex bonanza” expected to end on December 31st 2009. They claim that the male prostitutes are bent on taking over the age long profession from them, the traditional “owners” of the trade.

The female prostitutes who operate from a part of Kaduna metropolis, popularly called obalende on Maduguri road, claim the free sex would shore up and improve their business, which has nosedived for some months now.

To let people know that these prostitutes mean business, already they have began to create awareness for their sex freebie offer, by putting up banners and posters along their “territory” intimating customers of their offer, including other services on offer.

Sources gathered that how this offer works is, if you pay for a round of sex, you will get another round free. Also, the prize has been categorized into two, which are: petrol instant/ per night sex and gas instant/ per night sex. Anal sex is described as gas sex, which has been increased from N20,000 to N50,000 per night, while the normal sex also called petrol sex has been increased from N5,000 to N15,000 per night.

One of the female prostitutes in the area, who goes by the name “Presido”, and who claims to be a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, told sources that they can no longer afford to provide to people at the former price, due to Inflation. More importantly, they claimed that the male prostitutes are now trying to take over the business from them. Sources gathered that more people now find the male prostitutes less expensive, hence, the shift in patronage to them. Big boys and girls now pick these male prostitutes between 10pm to 2am, along a very popular hotel by Rabah and Mando  road, Kaduna .

Pay one round ... get one free???

20 truths about men

Relationship doctor, Bob Grant, wants every woman to KNOW this 20 truths about MEN. He says this is what every man has in his head...
Check it out...

1. I’ll do anything for sex; even commit to you for life.
2. I hate arguing with you. I’d much rather find a compromise.
3. Please don’t ask me how you look unless you’re willing to trust my answer.
4. My eyes notice other women a lot more when you are upset with me.
5. If I don’t feel I can make you happy, it makes me feel like less than a man.
6. If you can’t stand up to me when I’m a brat, you’re too weak for me to open up to when I’m upset.
7. I don’t read minds. Remember, I’m not a girl.
8. You may know fashion, but I wish you’d dress to please me, not other women.
9. I hate being told what to do when I don’t ask for help. It makes me feel like you’re my mother.
10. Being respected is more important to me than being loved.
11. I’m more insecure than you think. Why do you think I need your respect so much?
12. When I’m upset, I am very tone sensitive. How you say it is more important than what you say.
13. I hate it when you minimize/ignore my compliments. It makes me want to stop giving them.
14. I want every guy to envy me when we arrive as a couple. Please don’t let yourself go.
15. I don’t always know how I feel. That’s why I don’t tell you.
16. If I do one thing and say something contradictory, go with my actions—that will always tell you what’s in my heart.
17. I really don’t want to hear about any of your ex-boyfriends, regardless of the point.
18. Don’t ask me, “Are you going to wear that?” when I’m already dressed.
19. A gentleman should always be respected by his lady in public, even if she is disagreeing with him.
20. If you cheat on me, it is nearly impossible for me to get over it.
The End.

Hmmm I see, so you hate it when we cheat on you, but you do it to us all the time. What, you think we like it?  We don't. In fact we hate it. 
But there's something we do like. SPOIL US. If you can afford it, buy us things we need, things we want, and things we only need just to show off to foes friends that we are living the good life...lol
But on a serious note, we'd like for you guys to listen to us more. And look us in the eye when we are talking to you DAMMIT!, instead of acting like we are boring you to death! :-)
Also, we don't nag, we just like to talk...a lot! You men believe that there is no need to talk unless you have something to say. Yeah well, we women believe that if you have nothing to say then you need to talk about why you have nothing to say. Lol.
Nah, just kidding, we are not that petty
Oh yes we are! Lol!
And finally, we women generally don't like it when you guys spend more time grooming than we do. It's a huge turn off...right ladies? RIGHT!!!
What other truths do you think men should know about us women? And men is that what you guys are really thinking or is Dr Bob generalizing?
Oh by the way guys, we are not your mothers, so don't hold us to their standards. *wink*

Lilian Bach on why she's still single

"I have a Polish woman’s mentality. I’m not married, not because I have not been having marriage proposals. I have to look before I leap. It’s not easy for me, having advances from (left, right and centre) different angles. If I don’t get it right…. I don’t want to have this record of divorce in marriage. I said to myself, ‘If I gonna go into it, only once, till rapture comes. Let me put it that way. It’s not as if I have not had some bitter experiences along the line, But I thank God that it’s easy to break up a relationship, but not in marriage. I thank God for those past experiences, because if I have been married today, I wouldn’t know what would have come out of it."
