Top 5 Oldest Presidents in the World

As Charles Caleb Colton said, 'Power will intoxicate the best hearts, as wine the strongest heads. No man is wise enough, nor good enough to be trusted with unlimited power.' This is very true. That is why all but one of the people on my list of oldest presidents in the world have held the position for more than ten years.

Below is the list of top 5 oldest presidents in the world.

5.  Abdelaziz Bouteflika (Algeria)
Bouteflika was born 2nd March, 1937. He is 79 years old and has been the president of Algeria since 1999. Like former president Olusegun Obasonjo of Nigeria, he fought for a third term in 2006 after his two terms in office. But unlike Obasonjo, he won the bid, and went on to win the elections. He even stretched things further by fighting for a fourth term and again winning the bid. He has been ruling Algeria for 17 years now.

Countries With the Lowest Age of Consent in the World

What is the meaning of age of consent? It is the legally defined age at which a person is deemed legally competent to consent to sexual activity. Do you know what statutory rape means? It means, if you as an adult have sexual relations with someone who is not up to the age of consent of the country you are in, you can be charged to court for statutory rape. Yep! Even if the girl looks like an adult, and willingly had sex with you, you would have committed a crime. So, today, I decided to look into the list of countries with the lowest age of consent around the world.

Most nations have age of consent between 16 and 18 years of age, but there are some that go really low...as low as 14. Those are the ones I would be listing today. Checkout the list below.

Britain- 16

Norway- 16

Switzerland- 16

France- 15

Is It Possible for a Man and a Woman to be Just Friends?

Yea, that's the question of the day; Is it possible for a man and woman to be just friends? Is it possible for a man and a woman to be just friends without some form of emotions creeping in? Nope...I don't think so. Well, that's just me, but I will speak on why I think it is impossible.

Throw a woman and a man in house, and restrict them from leaving the premises for one month. It is almost guaranteed that they would start to develop strong feelings for each other, even if they never found each other attractive the first time they saw each other. This is the same reason why there is a lot of sleeping around among coworkers; being in close proximity with someone day in day out over a long period of time makes people develop feelings for each other.

Top 6 Religions of the World

When you ask a layman on the street to name the religions he knows, the two that would immediately pop out of his mount would be Christianity, and Islam. After which he would go, 'Ehhhhh' and look up in the sky like the answer would drop from the clouds. Most people don't know that there are more than a dozen religions in the world, and Christianity and Islam put together represent only half the religions of the 7.5 billion people on Earth. I have put together this article to shed some light on some of the other religions of the world. So, below is the top 6 religions of the world, with size (population) as the criteria.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Muhammad Ali

One of the greatest boxers of all time, Muhammad Ali died two days ago (June 3rd, 2016), at the age of 74.. May his soul rest in peace. Apart from being a great boxer, he was also very good with entertaining his fans during his fights. This is one of the reasons why he was more than just a boxer. Today, I have taken time to compile 5 things you might not know about the great Muhammad Ali.

1.  He Was Married 4 Times
Even though, through the first few years of his boxing career, he kept no female company, and never was once seen with women (some even thought he was gay), he ended up marrying 4 times. He is survived by 7 daughters and 2 sons.

2.  He Married His First Wife Within 4 Weeks of their First Meeting 
At 22, in 1964, Ali he met cocktail waitress, Sonji Roi, and in approximately one month after their first meeting, they got married. But their marriage ended within two years. One of the reasons being  the fact that Sonji wasn't comfortable with some Muslim customs concerning female dressing.

3 Weird Traits of Most Geniuses

You would see I said "most," not all. Through my research, and using myself as a guinea pig (yes, I consider myself a genius too), I have come to notice some distinct traits that are common with most geniuses. By the way, according to Webster online dictionary, a genius is an exceptionally intelligent person or one with exceptional skills in an area of activity. So, please, don't look at a genius as just someone like Albert Einstein. There are literary geniuses like William Shakespeare and Chimamanda Adichie, or you could be an entrepreneurial genius like Warren Buffet. Geniuses are found in all works of life.

Anyway, today, I am going to be looking at the dark side of geniuses people don't look at. Thorns might surround a beautiful rose, but it doesn't reduce the beauty of the rose. I believe it even enhances the rose's beauty. This is why believe people need to understand that intelligent people, great people, geniuses have some weird, maybe dark traits common to them, which a normal person might find repulsive, but it is part of what enhances the creations of these geniuses.
