The Nigerian Professors and The Plane

This is a story.

The president of a Nigerian University sent air tickets to all the professors of the department of engineering, mechanics, and IT for a trip to Cape Verde, all expenses covered by the university.

They were 103 in total and checked in a flamboyant new plane parked near a big hangar.

A few minutes before the takeoff the captain announced: ‘ladies and gentlemen, “This is your captain Buhari Abacha speaking. Welcome aboard this new plane made by the students of the University of Kaduna. We will take off in 15 minutes…”

The captain did not finish his announcement before the professors started running out of the plane pushing each other, some falling, some wounded, some in severe commotion.

In a split second the plane was empty, the professors all out protesting furiously, afraid for their lives.

However, one professor kept his seat, calmly, unimpressed.

The president of the university went out of the cockpit and questioned the remaining professor.

“Why didn’t you run out like other professors?”

“Nothing to be afraid of. If this plane is made by our students, it won’t fly. Why be afraid.”

Most of our universities are pretending to teach, pretending to do research. They are mostly babysitting our grown-ups, feeding them theories they barely understand themselves.

    It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it
    is time to be happy. I’ve learn this post and if I may I desire to counsel you
    some interesting things or advice. Maybe you can write subsequent articles relating
    to this article. I want to read more things
    approximately it! Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and
    i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect against it,
    any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s
    driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours as of late, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and
    bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web shall be much more helpful than ever before.

      thanks Jane. About spam protection, I do not have any software or plugin yet, but I’m interested in one if there’s any. Spam isn’t a big problem for me, so far

    How long does a copyright last on newspaper articles?. . If a service copies newspapers articles and then posts it in a database on the Internet, is there also a copyright on the Internet content?.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
