24 things people say to justify making mistakes/ bad decisions

 

Has a friend, family member ever raised an eyebrow at some SHADY move you are about to make?

Plus when you are about to make a bad decision, what’s the most likely statement you will make? Did I hear something close to ‘ Sh*t happens’?

Yup, that one.

Sometimes deep down, we’re aware that the choice we’re about to make isn’t the best decision. Yet, rather than stop it, we come up with the flimsiest statements to justify what we’re about to do.

Talk about digging your hole deeper. Here are 24 phrases we use to justify our mistakes

1. “Welp, might as well”

This is an all time favorite of some of my friends who end up saying  “F**k it”

2. If I die,I die.

3. “Oh well, it is what it issss”
4. “Oh well, at least I’m not murdering anyone”
5. “I’m here for a good time not a long time”
6. What’s the worst that could
7. “if you don’t do it, someone else will get it done”

8. Well sh*t… let’s go
9. Yolo
10. My time is now not tomorrow
11. I was born one day, I’ll die another Face with tears of joy
12. Life is for the living
13 If I die, I die
14. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
15. Who wants to live forever? and
What’s the worst that could happen?
16. “god please forgive me for this” 
17. “I mean, why not?”
18. “We’re all gonna die anyways”
19. “It is what it is”

“There’s only one way to find out”
20. I’ll get paid again.
21. “You only get one life”

“If it’s meant to be.. “

“God, Protect me”
22. “I’m allowed to make stupid decisions!

The excuse here is that one doesn’t have to be perfect.”
23. ‘So what?’

this really works
24. “who gone say sum? nobody”

The argument here is that “its my life” or worse that “if it goes down south that’s fine too”

Celebrities who’ve spoken out about not wanting children

The truth is some women are just not interested in motherhood.  Not every woman with a uterus desires a baby and that is something that society will just have to wrap their heads around.

1. Oprah

She once said in an interview that “I never had children, never even thought I would have children. Now I have 152 daughters; expecting 75 more next year. That is some type of gestation period, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy, 2007.

2.Miley Cyrus

In an interview with ELLE US in July 2019, Miley admitted that current state of climate change has affected her stance on having children. “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women,” she said in the interview. “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-shit planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.”
3. Blackish actress Tracee Ellis Ross

She plays a mum of three in the reality show, but in real life things are different. She confessed her feelings in a Times interview in 2018 that

“I’m constantly asking myself questions, reminding myself, ‘Are you making that decision for you or someone else?’ The husband and the babies are the expectation of what’s supposed to happen at a certain point, and people fall back on, ‘Well, that’s the point of the human species, procreation.’ And I’m, like, ‘I think there are a lot of babies, isn’t that part of what’s going wrong, there’s too many?’ Some people could be working on the world being a better place, or just being happy.”

4. Actress Jennifer Aniston

She divorced her second husband Justin Theroux, and has no children. The former Friends TV star said in the Today show in 2014 that

“I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done and if they’re not checked then I’ve failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth or my value as a woman… Y’know, I’ve birthed a lot of things. I feel like I’ve mothered many things. And I don’t think it’s fair to put that pressure on people.”

This particular hobby does not look great on your CV but for arguments sake let’s look at what this person decided as a good thing to do.

The crazy and bizarre traditions associated with Kenyans

The moment you realize how many of these bizarre traditions Kenya has, you will realize why Kenya is not only unique, its also full of weird traditions .

Having 42 tribes in Kenya, it also means that cultures between the tribes are different and we will tell you why.

Here are some of the bizarre cultures Kenya has.

1. Communities that kill twins

In the past, some communities would dump twins or triplets in the forest or immediately kill them .

This was because bearing of twins was considered evil and the mother would then be made to attend a cleansing ritual to put out the evil.

In some communities in Kenya still practice this away from the hawk eye whereby they still believe that first born twins or more children for that matter are an omen.

In addition to this, children whoa re also born already having teeth, those  born with their feet first, children born with both the female and male private parts and boys born with one testicle are also  considered as bad omen.

2. Wife Inheritance

This is a tradition that has been there among some communities in Kenya.

Women are usually forced to remarry to the family of the deceased. In many cases it is the brother of the deceased who inherits the widow and provides for her.

This is a tradition that is not common to the rest of the world.

 3. Sleeping with dead bodies before funeral

Have you ever heard that in the past, customs required widows in the community to sleep in the same room with their dead husbands before burial?

Well, reportedly, this was part of a cleansing ritual to purify such women in readiness for inheritance.

These are some of the old customs that may have been put aside but old habits die hard as you might find some of these habits continue to happen in the rural most remote areas in some of these communities.

 4. Night running

The nocturnal practice of running around communities is carried out across Kenya’s Western region.

The main purpose of night running or what the night runners do is , run naked and terrify people.

Night runners in Kenya term it as a sport.

5. Death in the forest

In nomadic communities, the sick or aged were not allowed to die in the home.

Instead, they were removed and taken into the forest, hillside or lay abandoned by the river.

A certain belief in a future life is indicated by burial of a calabash of milk beside the corpse and by the fact that the name of the departed is never mentioned lest the spirit should regard it as a call and come back.

This may be a tradition that still continues to happen with these communities.

4 things to do with leftover wine

It’s Friday and that means Wine O’clock for many Kenyan girls, but what happens when you don’t manage to finish that two litres of wine? I found some pretty interesting ideas on what to do with leftover wine, that most of us never knew.

Instead of letting that half empty bottle go to waste or sit in your fridge for a ridiculous amount of time, try repurposing it in one of these creative ways.

a. Use to cook with it

Yup, use that wine to enhance the flavor of your food. Please do not use it on pilau njeri, rather use it to meat, poultry and seafood sauces and some veggies.

b.  Bake with it

c. Make a face mask

d. Freeze it as wine cubes. Awesome for a hot day, and that’s assuming the good weather we are experiencing holds up for a bit longer.

So tell us Classic 105 fam, are there other creative ways you use leftover wine?

Drop your comments below and we will be sure to include them in our articles.

A list of the drugs used to spike drinks in clubs

 

Which drugs do people use to spike drinks at social venues?

The Star took out to investigate.

ROHYPNOL

For Stephen, the drug that was used on him is called Rohypnol.

These drugs are in the form of tablets and can be crushed and snorted up the nose or dissolved in a liquid prior to drinking.

Also known as bugizi, rape drug, forget me drug, circles or lunch money drug it is a colourless and odourless pill.

It retails at Sh850 at local chemists and online pharmacies.

The pill is preferred for its colourless and odourless characteristic when added to drinks or food.

The liquid form can also be applied to women’s breasts and sucked by men.

A police source who asked for anonymity says criminals prefer to have them in powder form for ease of spiking.

“The pill is grounded to powder and can be added to drinks or food without one noticing for it’s colourless and odourless,” he said.

According to Dr Faith Mwangagi, the drug causes sedative effects.

The action of the drug is experienced 20 minutes after administration and can last for six to seven hours.

For some, the effect can last for 12 hours or more after administration.binge-drinking-

 

“The action of Rohypnol appears in 20 minutes after administration and lasts six to seven hours,” she said.

If wrongly administered she said it causes slurred speech, inability to concentrate, poor coordination, dizzy feelings, lack of inhibition, nausea and amnesia.

Rohypnol may also be used with other drugs of abuse, such as alcohol or cocaine for various effects.

Rohypnol can increase the intoxication of alcohol or may be used to lower the irritability and anxiety linked with excessive cocaine use (binging).

VALIUM

Dr Geoffrey Mutuma says Valium at lower doses helps ease pain, reduce anxiety and relax muscles.

He said short term use is generally safe and effective.

When misused it causes some to sleep and feel out of touch with their surrounding.

“Valium is a sedative. It relaxes muscles but if misuses it makes one oversleep,” he said.

He said Valim does not kill when used in overdose but instead makes one sleep for even two days.

KETAMINE

Ketamine helps sedatives work and may help people need fewer addictive painkillers, like morphine after surgery or while caring for burns.

When misused, ketamine can change your sense of sight and sound.

Colleagues drinking together in bar
Colleagues drinking together in bar

“You can have hallucinations and feel out of touch with your surroundings and even from yourself, “Mutuma said.

He said Ketamine can make it hard to speak or move, and it’s been abused as a date-rape drug.

He said its overdose does not kill.

It can reduce bodily sensations, prompting a floating feeling which can render you immobile – an experience which is sometimes referred to as “entering a k-hole” in instances when the drug is taken recreationally.

It can also provoke hallucinations, panic attacks and memory loss.

The effects can begin after five minutes of taking the drug and a “trip” normally lasts between 30 minutes and several hours.

Tips on how to remain healthy, avoid neck and back pain while working from home

 

With thousands staying at home during this pandemic, most people are either using their computers on a regular table or using the laptops in bed as they work to meet their daily professional needs.

Some people also use a lounge chair on their balcony as they breathe in fresh air across the estates.

But the worst mistake and the bad news is that you may be on the road to potentially hurting your back or injuring your neck.

For you to avoid this; You are expected to follow these tips to still remain healthy during this time

Avoid using your laptop in bed

Unless you sit straight on the side of the bed, sitting in the sleeping position may injure not only your back but also your neck and shoulders.

If a bed is your only option, put a pillow behind your back to rest against the headboard and put your computer or a laptop on a cushion in your lap.

One is also advised to get a low table for the laptop to go over your legs so you can type at a comfortable height without straining.

Sit straight on a chair

Don’t try to sit upright and don’t hunch forward in your chair as your lower back curves in toward your belly.

You should ensure that your arm is at your side and that your nerves are not being compressed. If your nerves are compressed the more your neck and shoulder will be strained.

Make sure that you can sit back on your chair so some of your body weight is being supported by the chair back and sit close enough to comfortably reach your keyboard.

Raise your legs

When sitting, rest your feet flat on either the floor or use foot support.

For those who have recliner seats, you can recline to ensure that your feet are up there.

This will not only allow the flow of blood on your entire body including your feet but will also enable you to sit down comfortably.

How toxic relationships affect your health

Avoid prolonged standing for computer work

Standing to work requires more energy than sitting and puts a greater strain on the circulatory system and on the legs and feet.

Standing for extended periods of time also increases the risks of varicose veins.

To avoid this, sit, stand, stretch and take a 10-minute exercise before going back to the seat.

Do not stand for it will not only injure your back but also it will affect the flow of blood.

Things your fingernails try to alert you about your health

View any documents with a straight neck.

Don’t read from an iPad or papers that are flat on your table or your head will constantly have to move up and down.

If you need to go back and forth between a laptop or computer screen and separate reading material, use a vertical document holder or put iPad on a stand.

Here’s a TBT to high school games we all loved

 

I miss high school to be honest. Not the learning part but the extra activities we did outside schoolwork. The games, the bullying and those “funkies”. Today I want to just take a look into the high school games that rocked back in the days:

1. Draughts

It was a mental game. Buying a brand new draught was expensive and students had to be creative and drew the checkers on paper or a cardboard and used bottle tops as men. This game was more fun when money was involved. This is what brought life to this game. It was a two player game where a player moved the bottle tops towards the opponent and hoping to reach at the end of the board and become a king. Been a king was the killer move as he could move in different directions and trap the men. You ended up losing the game when all your men were knocked off the board or if you ended up been trapped and could not make any move but only surrender.

2. Chokora mti

This was one of the roughest games played. It involved holding a small stick with a lump of soil and everyone had their turn to remove little bits of soil until the stick lost support and fell off. If the stick fell off as you removed the soil you had to run for your life as the other guys would run after you hitting you really hard until you touched what acted as the stopper. It could be a teacher, a tree, a specific girl or a wall.

3. Mgongesho

This game involved knocking a coin on the wall and hoping for it to hit your opponents coin that lay on the ground. In case it hit the coin, the player took that coin and owned it. These coins were mostly 10 shillings. The gurus of this game would rake in good money and buy snacks at the cafeteria for their break time tea.

8 ways smoking can negatively affect your health

Smoking can occur in two ways which are passive and active. Passive involves taking smoke from the environment while active involves direct inhaling of smoke to your body. However smoke has negative impact to your body especially the lungs.

Picha inayohusiana

 

Other effects include;

Lung cancer

Smoke is the greatest threat to the lungs. This is because it infects the oxygenated air leading to breathing problems.

Smokers of light cigarettes suffer same fate as those who use traditional ones

Infertility

This negatively affects men ability to perform in bed, while it can cause cervical cancer for women.

Blood clotting 

Smoke can cause blood clotting as it invades the blood vessels. This lowers the rate at which blood circulation occurs in the body.

Kamba gospel singer denies introducing Rose Muhando to drugs

Blood cancer

Smoke contains some bacterial substances that once they invade the blood, it becomes infected. People who smoke a lot are likely to get leukemia compared to those who don’t smoke.

Dental infection

Most smokers normally have brown or yellow teeth. It can also lead to other tooth related diseases like tooth aches, dental inflammation and tamper with fresh breath.

Severe coughs

Cigarettes contain too much nicotine and many other harmful chemicals. This tampers with the respiratory system causing constant coughs.

REVEALED: Creative ways students use to smuggle drugs into schools

Immunity

Smoking can lead to low appetite as it affects the loss of sense of taste. This hence makes ones body to become weak due to lack of food. Once the body is not well fed, the immunity lowers making it difficult in fighting diseases.

Impairment

Smoking while you’re pregnant can cause serious problems, too. Your baby could be born too early, have a birth defect, or die from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Why the act of sending naughty photos is on the rise

Most probably 7 out of 10 readers of this post have sent a nude or semi-nude at a point in their life.

It’s the new culture amongst people of all ages. Over the past few years nudes and sex tapes of favourite actors, musicians and public administrators have leaked and done rounds over the internet.

Some were photo shopped as the victims claimed.

Technology has played a major role in the rise of this act.

It’s of essence we look into why this act is gaining popularity among the populace:

1. Sexual empowerment

With the rise of feminism and women taking pride in their bodies sending nude comes as a form of sexual empowerment. University of Arizona researcher, Morgan Johnstonbaugh, in his experiment concluded that for most women, sexting and sending nude was empowering to women because they can create a space where they feel safe expressing their sexuality and exploring their body. Desire is what drives most women to send nudes. It emerges in response to rather than in anticipation of sex.

2. Spices up relationships

With most relationships being short lived, extra activities must be put into practice to keep the fire burning and sending nudes happens to be one of them. Nudes adds flavour in times of sexting as the pictures are tantalizing and creates a sense of anticipation where sex is expected in the near future. With women generally wanting to feel desired, the act of sending nudes is majorly an issue played with them. The response given by most men- wanting to get freaky with them- is what creates the dire need for women to send the nudes.

3. Self esteem

With nudes been sent from a point of positivity, at times the reverse can happen. With majority of the youth suffering from self-esteem, sending nudes acts as a feel good feeling. With the recipient thirsting over the nudes, the sender feels good about themselves as someone somewhere desires their bodies. With nudity been one of the highest levels of intimacy, acts of sending nudes acts as a way of boosting self-esteem. With heterosexual women sending nudes to satisfy requests and prevent them from losing interest bisexuals and lesbians send them to feel empowered and gain confidence. Women bodies are commodified in the dating market in ways that men’s bodies aren’t.

4. Peer pressure

This has to be one of the most common reasons why most people send nudes. Everyone’s sending nudes, so why can’t I. It’s becoming okay for people to take pics of their body naked and send them to the waiting recipient. One of the unexpected reason for sending nudes had to be most women trying to prove a point when men turned angry if they withheld sending them at first. In return most women found themselves victims of this selfish act.

 

7 Agonizing things about dating a man shorter than you

Why is height still a factor when it comes to dating?

There’s nothing wrong with dating a guy who’s shorter than you, but it does come with its challenges.

Here are 7 very real truths about dating a guy who is shorter than you.

1. People will always make comments
Friends, or even strangers will always remind you of the height difference, and you will always remind those irritating moments. You will hear questions like ‘What’s it like’ or Does he mind it’ or someone telling you they couldn’t date a short man. It may sadly take years for you to continue hearing about the height difference even though to you it doesn’t make any difference.

2. Forget heels
Even though you are crazy about him, there are moments when you really want to wear those heels, but you will tower over him awkwardly and not feel great at all.

3. He is constantly trying to compensate
He goes out of his way to do things for you to make up for the height difference.

4. You’re very strategic about taking photos together
Selfies won’t be a thing for such couples. You may have to be strategic about taking photos for instance when sitting he should stand, or you should both sit and take that pic or else everyone will notice the height.

5. You find yourself justifying why you’re dating him
It’s a reality that you cannot deny. You will find yourself defending your choice of a bae by saying things such as ‘ he’s really sweet’ or ‘ height is just a number’ or you guys don’t know what a sweet guy he is’.

6. You feel like it’s all anyone ever sees
When you’re out in public and people look at you, you wonder if they’re thinking that you’re a girl with a short boyfriend. It’s like dating in interacial relationships, you wonder whether people judge you for dating that white guy.
You try to ignore it, but it’s just always an issue. It never goes away.

7. It makes you self-conscious about your own height
You will keep shuffling your feet whenever you are standing next to him owing to insecurities, because you fell like a giant next to him. If you are stressed out about it sis, put your heels away.
