I Would Like To Share Some Interesting Information With My Readers, Regarding “Swagging” In Our Society.

I don’t know why I never really made an effort to find out where the word Swag comes from and what it means. And I must say, I found some pretty interesting things when I did some digging. A lot of guys are probably gonna get a fit when they read this. Especially those who refer to themselves as someone with Swag. Do you even know what the word Swag means?

For those who do not know the meaning …I am not surprised. Unfortunately in our experiencing journey of following trends, we lack the wisdom in knowing what we are following. We do what others do, but do we really know what it is that we are doing? We fail to ask questions, it seems, and just do what others do.

Even so with what we wear. Do we really know what we are wearing; what the person who made it stands for and what the clothes we have on say about us as individuals? I will leave that topic for another day, though…

Anyway, the way I fell down laughing when I did some research on the word Swag! And I am sure after this read, some guys are definitely going to refrain from referring to themselves as someone with Swag. Unless, of course, you are cool with being associated to a piece of cloth or a thief? Ha ha!

Dictionaries around the globe have so many meanings. Some describe it as illegally obtained goods; free stuff; a decorative garland; a valance (an item of window dressing).

The most interesting theory on the net now is that the term Swag was invented in the early 1960s by a group of gay men in Hollywood. It has been said to stand for ‘Secretly We Are Gay’ and most frequently used as code on posters announcing gay orgies.

Other shared theories on the origin of the word include: ‘Souvenirs, Wearable And Gifts’; ‘

Stuff We All Get‘; ‘Stuff We Ain’t Got‘; ‘Stolen Without A Gun‘; ‘ Sold Without A Guarantee‘.

So there are quite a few connotations to the word Swag which we so easily use in our every day conversations.

Another theory is that the word Swag is a corruption of the Scandinavian savage meaning “to rock unsteadily or lurch” and that this word entered the English language in the 13th or 14th century. Over time, its meaning evolved into that of ‘hanging loosely or heavily, to sag’ and by 1794 picked up the additional meanings of ‘booty or plunder’ and ‘a hanging wreath or garland’.

Perhaps the ‘hanging loosely or heavily, to sag’ refers to baggy jeans and big shirts and all that so easily thrown on a day out? That is my assumption.

However, there is not much out there that really con notes the word swag with a specific attitude or style of dress as is done by all local ‘Swaggers’. When somebody says “I got swag”, it is associated to the way he dresses, the way he speaks and his attitude.

And when I dug a little deeper, I found that mostly the word swag is connoted to many other things other than attitude and a dress style.

The only definition (out of the many that I have come across) close to what people locally perceive swag to be is one that says it is a slang originating from the Scottish word ‘swagger’ which was a description of the way some Scots walk (in a swaying motion). The word was altered in American language to mean “the way one presents oneself”.

However, the definition mainly found in almost all dictionaries would give you one related to a curtain or piece of fabric fastened to hang in a drooping curve, or money or goods taken by a thief or burglar, or a traveler’s or miner’s bundle of personal belongings.

So the next time you use the word swag or you say “I got swag”, at least now you’ll know what you are con noting yourself to.

Believe it or not, we are what we wear. Or at least society has a way of figuring out a personality or character just by looking at what the person is wearing. That’s life.

Just thought I’d share these findings with you on a word so profoundly used in society.
Just like myself, I trust many more are now a little bit cleverer

ONLINE DATING AND FAKE MONEY LAUNDERING

Online Dating Sites and Fake Scam Money Laundering Syndicates: I would like to share once more ANOTHER DISCOVERY Regarding Online Dating Sites. Recently I joined another Dating Site Called Badoo. Copy and Paste like Netlog. They both are full of FAKE People. Indeed I was playing with My BlackBerry Phone beginning of March 2013, when I came Along at this Badoo App. I then decided to download the App and Testing it Out since it Mentioned about “Making New Friends”. The First Week I received a number of “Interested Male Friends”. They All Apparently Liked My Profile and Profile Picture. 80% of them eventually “Fall In Love” with me! I just decided TO PLAY ALONG and entertain them just TO SEE THEIR INTENTIONS! They All Started and Asked Me Exactly The Same Questions: 1. What are you actually looking for at this Site? 2. How long have you been on this Site? 3. Did you ever TRY DATING on this Site? 4. Tell Me More About Yourself. 5. Almost 90% got Interested in My Job once they heard I was Working In the Finance Division, some even asked My Salary wow Unbelievable! I told them all that “I joined this Site for the Sole Purpose TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS” and that I Believe in Freedom of Association. Thus No Need to Explain WHY I JOINED Badoo! Then I Met this Fake Guy from USA telling me he is Head Over Heels In Love with me. He asked for my phone number and started calling me regularly. Very Much In Love and even promised TO MARRY ME! The Second Week in March 2013 he told me about his Only Son which “WAS VERY SICK” doing some Missionary Work in NIGERIA, Africa. Immediately I became Alert and Vigilant. AGAIN NIGERIA just like in Netlog! He told me that he received some phone calls from the Doctor Treating his Son in the Hospital in Nigeria. Informing him that the Condition was “Very Serious AND THAT HE HAD To Travel to NIGERIA”, thus Needed Some FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE from me! He told me he spent all his money on his Businesses, thus in Urgent Need of Money to Fly to NIGERIA to check on his Dying Son. I told him unfortunately I don’t have money to assisted him. He then kept on Pressurizing me to Make Any Plan to Raised Some Funds, because the boy is also now my New Stepson! Then for ONE WEEK He kept On Ignoring Me very much Upset for My Failure in Providing Money to him. The Next Week I Contacted him AND THIS WAS HIS RUDE REPLY TO ME! Gone were the so-called Undying Love he had for me. Wow! Quoted: Lengthy Conversation, but to show to My Readers How Crooked this Online Money Laundering Guys can be, so please bear with me. “Hey Lady, you don’t know what I am going through okay, my house is on loan and my cars too. You know i need money for my son sickness and you there telling me you are in the hospital with bronchitis. What are you going to do to help me since my whole properties is on loan because i have no help. You make me sad always okay. You tell me things i don’t like to hear. Why are you giving me stress up on the stress I am on?. So I feel the only way to stop our Relationship is by ignoring you. You are not A Good Wife to have okay, your just self-centered okay! Wow Unbelievable! Then I Confronted him as follows and he Remained SILENT UNTIL TODAY! “The last time I remembered you told me you arrived at the hospital in Nigeria, but NEVER TOLD ME About the CONDITION of your Son. You just told me you want to take him back home to get better Treatment in USA. The Next Day you told me you lost your Purse on the Airport and the Securities and Police were looking for it. The Next day you told me you have nothing to eat and the Hotel might throw you out for Non-Payment. Then you told me your Phone also got lost together with your Purse, so I don’t know how you managed to call me that day if your phone were lost in a Foreign Country Nigeria; but you’re online all the time day and night?” “When I asked you whether you managed to contact the American Embassy and the Red Cross in Nigeria to Assist you, you get Angry and shouted at me “HEY you wanna tell me my job?” Wow is this how you Treat a Woman trying to Morally Supporting you? So up to now I don’t know whether you are still in the Hotel or on Street or even having something to eat. You told me that the Securities saw Two Men on Camera but up to know I don’t know whether you got your lost PURSE and STOLEN PHONE back or not. I asked you whether you bought A Return Ticket back home, you said YES. So WHAT IS YOUR ACTUAL PROBLEM NOW! You also told me you Raised Enough Funds to take your Son back home with you. I THOUGHT THAT PROBLEM WAS SOLVED! Only the Pending Problem with your Missing Purse and STOLEN PHONE. Nothing To eat and paying of Hotel Bills that’s what you told me the last time on SKYPE! Now today you are Again Back to your Sick Son Story? Honestly I am totally Lost NOW! You told me the last Time on Phone I AM GOING MAD HERE Honey please I have nothing to eat and the Hotel to pay. I don’t know what to do My Princess. Still I can’t Understand. You are 24/7 ONLINE but your PHONE AND PURSE both GOT LOST? Where did you get Internet Access from in Nigeria Africa if you don’t have practically something to eat?” No Response from him Untill today. How Stupid did he think I was to fall for all his Lies and Stories, even at many times Contradicting themselves? Never Judge A Book By Its Cover! Rather Read the Book and Get Used with Its Content before Judging. My Profile On BADOO and All Over Clearly Stated: “I AM A VERY INTELLIGENT, OBSERVANT And ANALYSING Woman.” What also triggers me is exactly like those Fake Guys On Netlog. How can you just met A Stranger for one or two weeks and start asking Monetary Assistance, even ending up screaming yelling insulting the Person because they can’t send you money? VERY IMMATURED and IMPROPER CONDUCT. After two weeks All My so-called Online Serious Relationships Died A Natural Death and the Men who were SO IN LOVE with me Disappeared into THIN AIR looking for the Next Innocent Victim or Start Ignoring me why? Am I Too Clever for them or they only Need Money from me? ALL ROADS LEADS TO ROME thy said! USA, UK, Ghana and Nigeria Proofed themselves The Master Mind Online Scam Gangsters in Money Laundering!

Why did Women Cheated on their Spouses?

It is very SAD to catch your Wife in your own bedroom with another Man.

More Often it has been found that Women are Cheating on their Working Husbands.

Wives monitored their Spouses movements. working hours, long shifts while the Men are trying their level best to earn income to Sustain the house hold and pay the bills. In return their Wives are cheating on them with other Men or even more worst with the Spouses Best Friends.

Some Women really seems to lose focus and want to make “extra money” by sleeping around with other Men, whilst their Husbands work long hours to fulfill in all her Needs.

The “Most Targeted” Group of Men are Mine Workers, Fishermen, Men in Uniform (e.g. Soldiers, Navy, Air Force and Business Men (most of the time route). Honestly speaking, why should people be so greedy to want more in life just for selfish reasons? in some cases their might be also other contributing factors e.g. some Spouses focuses too much on their work, money and status and neglect their Wives failing to give them more Love and Comfort. A Women Needs Love, Nurtured, Valued and Appreciated which some Men fail to fulfill. Indeed there are always “Two Sides” of a Story!

Word of Advise: Women try to talk to your Spouses explaining them what makes you unhappy in the Relationship or Marriage. Seek for Professional Assistance Marriage Counselors, Pastors or Other Services). Some Men might also be very Arrogant or Abusive!

Lastly, Women please remember that “Our Bodies are the Temple of God and that we should honor and treat it so. How will you feel if you find out your Men are Cheating on you? Never do Bad to others and Treat them in the same Manner you want expected to Treated!
