  1. Global warming is real (the ice caps are melting, Grandpa… at an alarming rate, they say). 
  2. Equality is the fight of the century (salaries, pro-life, racial, gender, sexual, tribal etc. It is bigger than the Pac and Floyd fight. If Uncle Paul were here today, he would not have to live his whole life in the closet *sad*). 
  3. Donald Trump is hated by all yet he is fast on his way to becoming the next American President (Yes, Grandpa. The 2016 US Presidential elections has become a joke to the rest of the world) 
  4. Oil price hits an all time low of $20 (and rose and fell, then fell then rose…then many people lost their jobs…and it keeps rising and falling…many job losses…and it keeps ri…). 
  5. Males (females) can now become females (males)….(Does that make sense to you Grandpa? Caitlyn Jenner, Laverne Cox etc…). 
  6. Terrorism affects almost every country of the world (the world is fighting back and will win but it is truly sad, Grandpa. People are dying).

  8. Airlines now charge for carry-on bags (even our purses are not safe…our clothes’ pockets too). 
  9. NASA plans a manned one-way trip to mars (good luck future Martians!). 
  10. The friend zone (hmm. Grandpa, you will never understand this term so let’s move on…). 
  11. Pastors now own private jets (I know Grandpa. In your days, they walked from village to village, right? Witches keep defying gravity and flying though. Who is the boss now?).
  12. Baby mamas and Baby daddys (like cockroaches, you find them everywhere). 
  13. Netflix and Chill (I do not know what this means and neither will you, Grandpa). 
  14. Robert Mugabe is still President of Zimbabwe (He is 92. “Not so long now and he joins us”, says Grandpa …..) 
  15. The Kardashians are the world’s first family (The world keeps denying this). 
  16. The Kardashians prove you can become a business Mogul from a sex tape being famous (Grandpa, even though you are dead, I cannot discuss anything sexual with you. So please, do not ask me to explain what “sex tape” means).

    Grandpa thinks they look good. I think so too
  18. Bill Cosby is accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women (Is “several dozens” worse than one or two women?). 
  19. Robots Aliens Social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat,Whatsapp) sneaked into the world and have taken over all Humans (I’m sorry. “My Space” did not make it). 
  20. Computers have become smaller (I swear…as small as my palm. It is amazing, Grandpa).
  21. Remains of a dead Dragon has been found (Yeah Grandpa. Those suckers are real…..)
  22. Hey! Hey you reading this! If you believe #19, you just became the 20th wonder of the 21st century.

I think I just gave my dead Grandpa a heart attack

I promised you 10 wonders and gave you 20. I am super awesome!…. Please, accept my grocery basket building (below) as a sign of my apologies for giving you 10 extra wonders in your life. You look like you might need them. (My Grandpa said your Grandpa sends his love to you as well)

This picture does not make sense, right? I know.
Who designed it?? It made the list as a world wonder!


    1. Thanks Udeze! At times, I do not understand why I write posts like this. One minute, I am thinking of something….the next minute, it has become a full-blown blog piece 🙂
