  2. I didn't know this forum was capable of skepticism when it comes to religion!

I remember few years ago it was different and included things like Somalis running a marathon in the pavement whenever they see a dog and someone with A-level maths being held as highly educated and respected among Somalis. It's much funnier now, of course.
  4. Goodness, what's the big deal? It's not like they are shagging in public.
  5. Remember the 'don't mess with Somalis' thread? Wait for people preaching as to how treacherous it's to find funny some website 'dissing your people'.

Working to earn a living, however small is honourable so I dont get the 'poor me attitude' Unfortunately, the attitude is a shared one among inner city kids, they have already assumed because they come from challenging enviroment [with free house,food,school, hospital] they are 'low' thus why aim high, why have pride or self respect. I work in an inner city school, changing the 'low' self view has been a challenging task so far. ps.Last summer London riots was the evidence of how corrupted their thinking is [i mean the youth] - causing havoc because they feel someone owes them something, whilst wearing designer gear claiming their not given They should see a 20yr old walking the length of London in Dar es salaams hot afternoon selling socks - now that is a tough life. Oh, I see what you mean. I couldn't agree more with your last paragraph.
  7. To anyone below me: pics or you will not have beaten me!

I actually felt sorry for them, they felt they were low class here in UK, thats was enough to erode any sense of self respect or love they have for themselves. I couldnt relate to that, as a diasporan born and bred, we have always had a sense of belonging with our families, community and nation even though we were miles away from Somalia. Marka maa fahmo ciyalkaan qurbaha jooga why feel inferior or low class? I thought majority of Somalis in UK are from working/lower class?
  9. Xoor = bubbles (usually milk bubbles) Ismiidaamin = taking the plunge Mirqaan = getting high Dubaab = drug bugs/delusional parasitosis. Qalaafyo? Faruuryo?
  10. Having so many children you know you cannot feed then watching them die of starvation is disgusting! Even those who manage to feed them are usually unable to provide a better quality of life for them than they could if they had fewer. People get dogged against contraceptives but lack the moral imagination to see the impact of uncontrolled birth rates -- especially in countries like Somalia.
  11. I wonder what Ziggy Sobotka would do!

  21. I'm not trying to spoil the thread, but in my part of Somalia jinac has nothing to do with macaan jecel or dhuxun ku reeb. Sakaaro = dikdik.
