Why Do Some Brides Show So Much Cleavage on Their Wedding Day?

Every time I attend a wedding ceremony, this question crosses my mind- why do some brides show so much cleavage on their wedding day. I am not a moralists or anything, I am just curious. I have seen ladies who never did that on a regular go all the way with it on their wedding day. Is there some sort of ritual there I don't know about?

Nothing in Life is Free

I know people like to say the best things in life are free, but really, if you take time to think about it, nothing in life is free. If you didn't pay for it initially, you will pay for it later. And if you don't get to pay for it later, then you probably paid for it in the past without knowing, or someone is currently paying for it. And even if you get something for free from someone or a company, you are probably paying with a more valuable currency- TIME.

A lot of people overlook this fact, but really, your time is limited, so it is a more valuable currency than money. If you spend time in line to get something free, or you let someone control your life cos she or he is helping with some handouts, you really ain't getting that money or service for free, cos you have paid for it with your time. So, you see, whichever way you look at it, nothing in life is really free.

The Story of the Alleged "7 Year Old Boy" That Was Burnt Alive in Lagos

The story of a supposed 7 year old boy who people claim was burnt for stealing a cup of Garri has been all over the Internet lately. When I first saw the story, even though the picture of the boy looked like that of a toddler, my brain didn't just want to accept the story. 'How can sane human beings beat and burn a 7 year old boy to death,' i thought to myself. So, I decided to do a little research.

After watching the video, I saw that the person that was lynched and burnt alive was actually a man with a small body; At least, 20 years and above. He had been beaten to a pulp (the type of beating a 7 year old body can never withstand), and his face and head had bumps all over from the planks and stones people had used on him. This happened in Alafia; a community in Orile (Lagos, Nigeria), where people say is notorious for deadly robbery attacks at night. According to people, this particular thief didn't wait for the cover of the night to perpetuate his act; he tried to rob a woman in broad day light, and when someone standing close by tried to stop him, he started stabbing the man in multiple places, but he was overpowered by the other people passing by.
