Ha!
Being different is one thing,being silly,outdated and ultimately stupid is another. :glasses

uhhh Vince, na me and my former classmates you dey call 'ultimately stupid' plus including my former teachers and head-mistress( hate that denotation ) not to mention my little cousins when still dey nursery school, and their teachers and head-mistress/master who are right now teaching them to clap in that manner.

I guess it's music for some -- you know, an ordered arrangement of sound that is pleasing to the ear :music-smi

@Vince.
Either your sense of comprehension is very poor or you're blatantly refusing to face the music and dance. In any case, let me first say...please keep your hat on and chill. Relax. Let me help you comprehend certain points YOU raised and also help you understand MY responses to the things you raised in your previous posts.

Firstly...in response to Lady_vexy's initial post you said and I quote as I have done in the past but u kinda missed or didn't understand it.


I responded by saying, if clapping the way u despise is not in your words relevant and does not contribute positively to their lives, how is clapping in your own way relevant??? And I also went on to say.. regardless of which way you clap, it does not add to or remove anything from your life or experiences. And my dear, believe it or not...whichever way you clap, be it what you refer to as normal or as local, it doesn't make a difference... you are who you are. You keep bantering on about children being made into robots etc May I remind you that whilst you( perhaps as being members of an elite few) who went to private schools did not clap that way in your school,
and whilst by your own admission you made fun of those of us who went to schools were they clapped in that fashion... None of us ever had a challenge
either with clapping your way or the other way and we certainly are not demented, disadvantaged, disoriented or have no meaning to our lives. Cos we do have our lives together, even after clapping the local way in public schools. At least I know I do.

I have never seen any child or adult who went to such schools who suddenly got out and got shocked that people clapped differently when they left school. The fact is, when we were in school that's how we clapped, when we were home and went to church with our parents... we clapped differently... there was no confusion...One was dicplined and orderly....the other was just the way we clapped. There was no NORMAL or ABNORMAL way as you are implying.

You said the clapping was devoid of emotion..I am very curious to how you would know this seeing you never clapped that way and didn't go to a school where they did! Or are you psychic? I clapped that way back in school and I can certainly say I don't agree with you. When we were in classrooms....we'd clap for someone the teacher asked us to clap for and we'll do it with a lot of umph and gusto! On prize giving days we clapped differently...again no confusion. So really, I don't see what your point is.

You say in your response that the normal way of clapping makes children look human...and by that you imply that those who clap in the manner you clap
don't like look inhuman or look like robots. You say that like when you see these kids... what you see is a group of aliens or robots doing stuff. Well, I really wish you could see me man...cos I am as human as they come!!! And never have been otherwise. Pleasego back to your drawing board and start again.

You said my reference to money management is so out of context.... I am kinda disappointed that u didn't get the context in which that was said...or that you just decided to take it out of context. But nonetheless I'll help you. The point I was making was....clapping your way...or what you refer to as the "local" way does not add to or make a child better either physically...
educationally...financially or otherwise. If you realise, I asked the question in response to your saying clapping the local way is stupid, irrelevant and
does not contribute positively. So I asked, how does your way contribute positively? Is your way what makes kids brighter, make them Financially stable, is it what makes then good parents, husbands, wives colleagues, businessmen or women or responsible when they grow up??? My point it...both ways of clapping (going from your mode of argument) contributes nothing whatsoever to a child's education. Get the context now??? Cos if you don't... I sure shouldn't even be discussing with you.

You say which modern school in Nigeria adopts that style?? To be honest, I haven't the foggiest and I am the least concerned about what style they adopt. Whichever style they adopt is not what makes the child any better. Cos saying that you'll be saying..that you are better than those of us who went to schools were they clapped in the "local" way. And I seriously doubt that. Again I don't know which modern school in Nigeria adopts what you term as the local way...but then again..I don't know what modern school in Nigeria now...offers the same quality of education I received from the schools I went to when I was in Nigeria back then. And yet, we clapped in the so called "local" way.

You say clapping the "Normal" way as you put it...accustoms our children to normal human behaviours... That's about the laziest and shallowest argument any one can give. So you didn't clap that way when you were in school and I did...you saying I wasn't accustomed to this so-called "normal" way of clapping??? Man...you better get with the program. That is so not correct. The truth is "CLAPPING IS CLAPPING". Whichever style you choose, it does not affect your outlook on life. At least it didn't affect the thousands
of us "locals" who went to "local" schools who can still dig clapping one way or the other. Don't knock what you've have not tried or experienced!!! I have tried and done both..and i say..it doesn't matter whichever way you clap, it does NOT ADD TO or REMOVE ANYTHING FROM one's life!

Remember that my taking up this point with you is not about saying clapping your own way is wrong...It's about you saying clapping in a different way from what you know and like is "Stupid, irrelevant and devoid of anything positive" That's what I have a beef with. And that's wrong. I think I have said my piece on this issue. however if you need me to explain any of the concepts I discussed above...please do holla! But please read it, assimilate it and try to comprehend it. And please don't quote me out of context.

WHICHEVER way you clap....you express emotions and it is enjoyable. One is used in our schools (i.e. the ones you refer to as locals) to maintain order and instill some discipline... the other is just clapping without any order or togetherness...and oh by the way...There are loads of ways of clapping.
All ways are equally effective... I have had the pleasure of clapping in both forms...and didn't have a "mechanical" experience as u put it, and I
certainly didn't leave school ignorant or demented or whatever. You get my point???? I soooo hope u do..but even if you don't...please please
KEEP YOUR HAT ON and don't get worked up!

This whole essay you just posted up there was nothing other than just a blind sticking up for the way you did things in whatever school you went.I did not see one single solid arguementative point in that long write up,but that is ok,i guess we all have to be loyal to something,even if it is blind loyalty.
No point pursuing this further,'cos i already made my points very clear as day.
Moving on! :spiny:

@Vince & OlaMichael,aaw you guys,don't tell me the show is over already just when i was beginning to enjoy it.

I still think clapping the other way is 'local' but i don't think whichever way we clap ultimately affects our development as normal, well adjusted human beings.

There is nothing more to discuss.The arguements have turned stale and boring,as far as i am concern.

Remind me not to cross your part. Wow, you sure can maim a person. (Well I think I'll be able to hold my own if that ever happens) All in all good points and great arguments. :action-sm.

I agree, clapping one way or the other doesn't make much difference.
