Excellent ideas.

Very insightful. Thank you

Finally a positive comment from you this year. Keep up :smiley:

I know how to tune your ovaries. Bonobos are not too hard to please.

White man used to say , “Good work @Ndindu, keep it up!”

Ndindu anajibu, “Yes massa , anything you want massa!”

Ndindu walks back to his fellow bonobos, " Si mmeona? Mkubwa anajua mimi ndio ninaelewa kazi. Ni kidogo tu aniachie hii mali yote akirudi kwao. Na ikiwezekana tuende na yeye kwao!"

Leta summary mdau. Mecho imechoka from watching “red” all day on my screen pale Kwa crypto. Portfolio iko mbaya but still couldn’t help but buy into the dip some more. Now I’m questioning my investment choices but what the heck.

Kumbe jamaa inakuanga na akili. Most other days is trolling here with nonsense


Ame copy paste. he doesn’t have the decency to acknowledge source, it is what is commonly referred to us copyright infringement
