Breaking: IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Calls Off Election Boycott

2/15/2019 02:14:00 PM 0
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has called off the election boycott order he had issued his supporters in the South East. Mazi Kanu, in a statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said due to “our terms and conditions had been met by those wishing us to lift the ban on voting, it was unanimously agreed that the boycott should be lifted.”


The statement partly reads thus: “It’s important we notify the world at large and the indefatigable global IPOB family in particular that our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has called-off the election boycott in Biafraland. “After a brief emergency session of the Directorate of State late last night presided over by our leader, it was determined that all our terms and conditions had been met by those wishing us to lift the ban on voting, it was unanimously agreed that the boycott should be lifted.

“The signed document agreeing to IPOB terms and conditions are in our possession and will be made public in due course. “We can, therefore, state with utmost sense of responsibility and pride that IPOB has accomplished what no other people or group has been able to do in the history of our people.

Without prejudice, this will go down as the defining moment when the irreversibility of the restoration of Biafra was firmly entrenched in the subconscious of all and sundry. As a result of which we can state categorically that Biafra is a lot closer than we think as a result of this.”

5 Creative School Interior Designs That'll Wow You

2/15/2019 01:53:00 PM 0
Interior designs they say, has a way of impacting positively in the life of students, whether at home or in the school. That explains why schools try as much as possible to put the best kinds of designs in the school premises.

However, these schools went extra mile in their quest for a great school designs, and you know what ― we love them! And that's why we've made a compilation of the most creative school designs.

1. The Book Lockers



Well, these kids must count themselves lucky that they attend a school where the authorities thinks about creativity. This school painted the lockers of the student into books to encourage them to read.

2. Vending Library

 We'd say that this school's creativity is topnotch, they provided the student with a vending machine that has books in it instead of drinks. The students would have to 'earn' free tokens for them to have access to those books.

3. The 'Little Village' Hallway 

Back in the day, our hallways were filled with names of our crushes, rubbish stuff and immature drawing all on the wall, but in this school, they made sure to convert this regular hallway into a little village leading to the woods — a masterpiece!

4. Reflector Mirror For The 'Back Benchers'


They made sure that every student is carried along — even the 'back benchers'. The mirror is strategically placed above the table in front, in such a way that it perfectly reflects what's on the table to the rest of the class — especially those at the back of the class. Great innovation right?

5. The Basket Bin

We all had fun doing this where we used to imagine a trashcan as a basketball goal and we literally threw our trash in that way. This school however, went out of their way to install a basket ball net just above the trashcan, to encourage the students to always use the trashcan. After all, trashing waste shouldn't be boring, a little fun won't hurt.

Weird Scientific Excuses Why Humans Haven't discovered Aliens Yet

2/13/2019 05:19:00 PM 0
Aliens! Aliens!! Aliens!!! We often hear about them and the space exploration for the discovery of alien life on other nearby planets. But each passing day, brings fourth no answer to quench our thirst for answers on where and how we can actually find alien life and then 'scientific' excuses to back it up.



Nevertheless, a phycist who goes by the name Enrico Fermi looked up into the sky, about 60 years ago and asked, "where is everyone". He was talking about aliens.

Today, scientists know that there are millions, perhaps billions of planets in the universe that could sustain life. So, in the long history of everything, why hasn't any of this life made it far enough into space to shake hands (or claws … or tentacles) with humans? It could be that the universe is just too big to traverse.

It could be that the aliens are deliberately ignoring us. It could even be that every growing civilization is irrevocably doomed to destroy itself (something to look forward to, fellow Earthlings).

Find Some OF The Reasons Below:

1. They May Not Be Detectable By Sound and Light Waves


In a small study, the researchers asked 137 people to look at pictures of other planets and scan the images for signs of alien structures. Hidden among several of these images was a tiny man in a gorilla suit. As the participants hunted for what they imagined alien life to look like, only about 30 percent noticed the gorilla man.

In reality, aliens probably won't look anything like apes; they may not even be detectable by light and sound waves, the researchers wrote. So, what does this study show us? Basically, our own imagination and attention span limit our search for extraterrestrialsy. If we don't learn to broaden our frames of reference, we could miss the gorilla staring us in the face.

2. Humans will kill all the aliens (or already have).


The closer we get to finding aliens, the closer we get to destroying them. That's one likely eventuality, anyway, said theoretical physicist Alexander Berezin.

"What if the first life that reaches interstellar-travel capability necessarily eradicates all competition to fuel its own expansion?" Berezin wrote in a paper posted in March to the preprint journal arXiv.org. "I am not suggesting that a highly developed civilization would consciously wipe out other life-forms.

Most likely, they simply won't notice, the same way a construction crew demolishes an anthill to build real estate because they lack incentive to protect it." (Whether humans are the ants or the bulldozers in this scenario remains to be seen.)

3.The aliens couldn't evolve fast enough (and died).


File another excuse under "the aliens are dead already" category. The universe may be teeming with hospitable planets, but there's no guarantee they'll stay that way long enough for life to evolve. According to a 2016 study from Australia National University, wet, rocky planets like Earth very unstable when they start their careers; if any alien life hopes to evolve and thrive on such a world, it has a very limited window (a few hundred million years) to get the ball rolling.

"Life may be rare in the universe not because it is difficult to get started, but because habitable environments are difficult to maintain during the first billion years.

4. The Effects Of The Dark energy

The universe is expanding. Slowly but surely, galaxies are moving farther apart, with distant stars appearing dimmer to us, all thanks to the pull of a mysterious, invisible substance that scientist call dark energy.

Scientists speculate that within a few trillion years, dark energy will stretch the universe so much that Earthlings will no longer be able to see the light of any galaxies beyond our closest cosmic neighbors. That's a scary thought: If we don't explore as much of the universe as possible before then, such investigations may be lost to us forever.

5. The Plot Twist 



What if we're the aliens? What if the aliens we've spent billions of dollars looking for, has been us all these while? What if the 'real creatures' found us 'aliens' first and has had us under surveillance for ages and has, in some way, been manipulating our politics, lifestyle etc? Scary right?

Well, in a nutshell, the hypothesis says that much of the life we see on Earth today didn't originate here but was "seeded" here millions of years ago by meteors carrying bacteria from other worlds.

Proponents of this theory have variously suggested that octopi, tardigrades and humans were seeded here from other parts of the galaxy — but unfortunately, there's no real evidence to back up any of that.

One big counterargument: If bacteria carrying human DNA evolved on another nearby planet, why haven't we found traces of humanity anywhere besides Earth? Even if this hypothesis turns out to be plausible, it still doesn't help us answer Fermi's nagging question … Where is everybody?

Man Falls Off Cliff After Completely Putting His Trust On Google Map

2/13/2019 02:05:00 PM 0
Sounds really weird and funny right? Well, it does to me too.
A widely known thought or notion about male drivers is that they’re loath to stop and ask for directions when lost.

The stereotype has just been made concrete by a truck driver named Agus Tri Pamungkas, 23, who recently became a victim of Google map, was tasked with the transportation of a payload of rocks from Banyuwangi, East Java to Singakerta village in Ubud, Bali.



According to a report by The Jakarta Post, Agus lost his way upon reaching Ubud, and then he figured consulting his phone instead of the locals was much better(we all know better now), and then faithfully followed the directions provided by Google Maps.

Unknown to him, the route he was taking was meant only for light vehicles, such as motorcycles.
Despite realising that the road he was on was very narrow, Agus pressed on and even traversed a rickety bridge over the Wos River near Banjar Gelogor (hey, who is he to question Google Maps?)
Agus and his truck miraculously made it to the other side of the bridge, but the road – which was poorly maintained – suddenly turned into a steep, uphill climb.

Perhaps realising that it had been bamboozled by Google Maps, the truck decided to rebel. It stalled, slid backwards over the cliff and plunged into the Wos River.
Incredibly, Agus survived the horrific crash and was rescued and taken to hospital by residents of nearby Lodtunduh village.
Note to all motorists – having blind faith in an app is as potentially hazardous as a blind person consulting Google Maps (and driving!).

8 Ancient Inventions Far Ahead Of Their Time And Beyond Modern Understanding

1/26/2019 07:47:00 AM 0
The ancient times were further ahead than we presume them to be there has been many discoveries that proved that the ancient Greeks, Romans, and other civilizations had devised numerous technologies to accomplish day-to-day work. Our imagination is what takes us to the first step of advancement and our past generation is a good example of how we became so advanced using the technologies and all the creativity.

However, historians are digging up evidence that shows some ancient humans had their shit together in ways modern humanity can still barely manage.

Find some of them below

1. The 1,600-year-old Roman chalice, the “Lycurgus Cup,”

The Roman artisans were nanotechnology pioneers. Scientists believe that the Romans may have been the first ones to come across the colorful potential of nanoparticles by accident, but they sure perfected it! This amazing property of the Lycurgus Cup puzzled scientists for decades when the cup was acquired by the British Museum in the 1950s. It was not until 1990 that the mystery was solved.

Researchers studied broken fragments of the cup under the microscope and discovered that the ancient Romans had created the glass with silver and gold particles that were ground to be as small as 50 nanometers in diameter.
This suggests that the Romans knew what they were doing, meaning they had knowledge of nanoparticles!

2. The Sunstone and Uunartoq Disc That served As A Compass For Ancient Vikings

Often regarded as ruthless robbers, the Vikings were also impressive mariners capable of traversing the North Atlantic along a nearly straight line. Now, new interpretations of a medieval compass suggest the sea robbers may have skillfully used the sun to operate the compass even when the sun had set below the horizon.
The remains of the supposed compass — known as the Uunartoq disc— were found in Greenland in 1948 in an 11th-century convent. Though some researchers originally argued it was simply a decorative object, other researchers have suggested the disc was an important navigational tool that the Vikings would have used in their roughly 1,600-mile-long (2,500 kilometers) trek from Norway to Greenland.

3. The 2000 year Old Computer “Antikythera mechanism”, Developed by Ancient Greeks

The Antikythera computer was used to predict the position of the planets and stars in the sky depending on the calendar month.
The mechanism is like a great astronomical clock — or like a modern analog computer which uses mechanical parts to save tedious calculation. The logic behind calling it an analog computer is that similar to a computer, the user can provide an input and get the desired output based on some calculations.

4. The Ancient Refrigerator

During the winters, the Persian people used to bring ice from nearby mountains and store them in pits they created in the middle of the desert. The ice pits, known as “yakhchal,” were one of the most ancient refrigerators known to mankind. They were also used to keep food cool and healthy during the intense summers.

The structures were as tall as 60 feet. Below the dome lies a large underground space with excess storage area. The underground space was as large as 5,00 cubic meters. The underground space was connected to a “qanat,” or wind catch. The wind catch consisted of multiple windcatchers that had the ability to bring down the temperature to frigid levels during the summers.

5. The Ancient Roman Concrete

This is not a modern-day concrete but a 2000-year-old Roman concrete which is stronger and better than the ones that are used nowadays. Not only is the Roman concrete is more durable than modern cement, it even gets stronger with time!

Modern concrete is a typically a mixture of silica sand, limestone, clay, chalk and other ingredients that are melted together at insanely high temperatures. The final product is made inert so that no chemical reactions can take place that might lead to erosion. This is the reason why concrete does not last as long as natural rocks. On the other hand, ancient Roman concrete was created with volcanic ash, lime, and seawater. The Romans took advantage of the chemical reactions they may have observed in tuff rocks, which are naturally cemented volcanic ash deposits.

6. Drills and Natural Gas Pipelines in Ancient China


Salt was a highly valuable resource in the ancient world, both as a preservative before refrigeration and as the only weapon keeping the slug people away. The Chinese had no choice but to dig down into the ground in search of that savory white gold.
Their drilling methods weren't just ingenious, they were also sophisticated. They designed a whole catalog of drill tips for different circumstances, and even had a protocol for repairing cave-ins underground from the safety of the surface.

7. Ancient Baghdad Batteries

The artifact – thought to be a 2,000-year-old electric battery – was found in 1936 by railroad workers in the area of Tel Khujut Rabu, south of Baghdad.
Most sources date the batteries to around 200 BC, but the first known electric battery – the Voltaic pile – was not invented by Italian physicist Alessandro Volta until 1799.

The bottoms of these mysterious cylinders were capped with copper discs and sealed with bitumen or asphalt. Another insulating layer of bitumen sealed the tops of the pots and held in place iron rods suspended into the center of the copper cylinders.

8. Advanced Ancient Chinese Robot

Researchers discovered ancient Chinese highly advanced robots that could sing, dance, act like servants and perform many other surprising tasks.
Some of these remarkable robots are even said to have possessed life-like organs such as bones, muscles, joints, skin and hair.

It’s a quite remarkable considering it is only recently our modern civilization has started to develop human-like robots.
There is no doubt mechanical engineering in ancient China reached a very high level.

Study Shows That Men Who Marry Smart/Intelligent Women Live Longer

1/25/2019 07:59:00 AM 0
Encouraging  men to value a female’s brains over her beauty is a tricky business. This has long been an important feminist issue, and one that is well understood by most people. Up until now, only men were expected to be educated and working. But the time has changed and the need for women's smartness is equally important. It is finally time when men should look beyond beauty and search for brains in the girl.

Let's discuss how smart women help men to live longer and happier.


Helps Stimulate And Prevent Some Mental Diseases

Researchers revealed that intellectually challenging games such as crossword puzzles can help to ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s by stimulating the brain, so it would make sense that a wife who engages and challenges her husband’s mental faculties could benefit him in the same way. Shockingly, some men who were married to these clever women even showed physical signs of dementia in a brain scan but didn’t suffer from any symptoms of the disease. In fact, they were determined to be “highly intelligent” and fully functional.

Mind Stimulation

If you marry a smart woman, she'll have a way of stimulating your mind when you engage her in intellectual conversations. She can always have a good conversation with you. You'll always feel a sense of comfort and relaxation whenever you feel stuck in a situation ― because you're rest assured your wife will always have a smart contribution and a possible way out.

Helps to reduce stress

We all feel stressed at some point in time. The burden of family and work life often causes severe stress. However, if you have a smart and intellectual wife, she will understand you and will try to handle the things in a better way. She will guide you the way to reduce your stress.

A Sense Of Independence and Responsibility

The study also revealed that intelligence can make your partner look at you with pride and being smart can make a woman more responsible and independent. This is because a smart and intellectual woman will always pay attention towards your work or hers. She will never ask you to neglect your work and will understand the priorities in a better way.


Good support system

We all need a supporting partner in our life. If you marry a smart woman, you get that support without even asking. She will be there by your side in all the ups and downs of your life.

This Is What Happens To Your Poop When You Defecate In A Plane's Lavatory.

1/24/2019 12:36:00 AM 1
If you've flown before, I can bet my right balls that you've at one time thought of where your poop finally ends up when you flush it. Or perhaps, how the toilet on a modern aircraft work? Aircraft lavatories have come a long way since the early days of commercial air travel. Early flyers used slop buckets, and WWII pilots tossed piss-filled bottles out of unpressurized windows.


Train lavatories still adopts this method of poop landing directly on the ground when you flush, but we sure are not here[on this post] to talk about trains - so back to our planes.
Airplane toilet has a machine that goes to waste management system and here we will be explained how it goes.

The Airplane Belly


Airplane belly is just one of several tanks found inside the plane. These tanks get filled with waste, through the use of suction. Pressing the flush button in the airplane's toilet is the first step of the process. Pressing that button opens a valve on the bottom of the bowl, which in turn exposes the contents of the bowl to a pneumatic vacuum.

The Suction and Holding Tank

There are two types of tanks in the plane - suction and holding tanks.The suction tank is the tank that the waste first lands the toilet is flushed. This tank can't hold a lot of waste. When the suction tank filled, the holding tank then takes up from where it stopped, thus the name.

The brain behind the invention  

All innovators need to be remembered by name, and James Kemper is no different - he is the guy that invented the vacuum toilet system used in modern airplanes. He invented the system during the 1970s, with the system still being in use today.

The blue liquid used in the airplanes toiler system is called Skykem, and it works as a deodorant and purifying the waste. The liquid is non-sticky, which helps the suction process to properly "grab" all of the waste you drop in the toilet.

How The tanks Are Cleaned And Maintained

For every land the an airplane makes, there is always a crew with a lavatory service truck that hooks up with the tank and empties its content into the truck.
What happens to the excess waste that is poured into the truck? Unfortunately, that answer is a mystery.

ASUU Strike: ASUU Denies Reaching Agreement With FG

1/09/2019 08:11:00 PM 0
President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi has today, Wednesday, 9th January, denied claims by the Federal Government, asserting that they[FG] finally reached an agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over their long disagreements ― TribuneOnline Reports.
According to Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, the negotiations between them and the FG is still indecisive, as the team that represented ASUU at the meeting has no final say concerning the decision making, as a body, on matters with such magnitude.

The Professor went on to explained that what they had on ground now is a proposal from the FG, which ASUU insisted must be written down showing her plans of action ― unlike the prior meetings that the FG always made verbal proposals.

Recall that their last meeting happened to be the seventh time they held meetings over their differences without tangible outcomes from the prior meetings.

Prof Ogunyemi went further to say thus:

“It was just yesterday (Tuesday) that government sent the proposal to us without waiting for feedback before going to the public that we have reached an agreement. ASUU does not operate in that manner.”
“The ASUU team that met the Federal Government,” he noted, “would have to consult our principal over the proposal which we are already doing.”
He disclosed that the said principal represents various organs of Asuu who will in turn pass any resolution at that level on to the National Executive Committee and then, final decision can be made.
“So, ASUU cannot make pronouncement on a mere proposal. Until our principal agrees, there is no agreement. And that is what we have always emphasised to government that we are going to consult our members and if after consultation, our members think the proposal is good enough, we will get back to government and tell them that now, we have taken a decision which becomes an agreement.

But so far on government proposal, we have not taken a decision. And our strike is still ongoing,” he said.
But when asked if there were grey areas in the proposal that would need consultation, he said ASUU might not bother about further consultation on issues that are very clear.

Giving examples, he said: “If you say you are going to set up a committee and you have set up that committee, that one is clear. And if you say you are going to pay certain money for certain purpose and you have paid, that will not also cause further argument.

But where we said you should release certain amount of money in five tranches within certain period of time, and you are saying well, you have paid N20 billion, or you have paid N2 billion or N15. 4 billion, it means you haven’t started.

“So, that is the level we are now. And we don’t have a final say on any proposal that is controversial. But for areas that are not controversial as I had mentioned, we will only need to confirm payment. If paid, fine. It then means that one is settled and we now move to another one that is yet to be settled. And the one that is not settled we will need to take feedback to our members and that is the position we are at the moment.”

R. Kelly Plans To “Sue Everybody” Involved In The New “Surviving R. Kelly” Documentary

1/07/2019 03:42:00 PM 0
Following the release of Lifetime’s six-part documentary series, ‘Surviving R. Kelly’, which ended on Saturday, January 5, sources say R&B legend has revealed he'll be sueing everybody who had anything do with this, according to a report by TMZ.

Despite not watching any of it, Kelly is allegedly “disgusted” by the series and believes those who participated in it have a vendetta against him. He however claims he didn’t know half the people who were interviewed for the show and insists the other half hates him for personal and professional reasons. He says there were various people who wanted to defend him, but the producers wouldn’t allow it.

Surviving R. Kelly documentary is an in-depth look at the accusations made against the controversial artist, including claims that he has had s*x with underage girls, has physically abused numerous women, and even ran a “s*x cult” from his Chicago home.

Scientists Plan On Dimming The Sun To Resolve Global Warming - Stratospheric Aerosol Injection

12/30/2018 01:41:00 PM 2
Scientists are proposing an inventive, yet so far unproven approach to tackle climate change. 'How?' we hear you ask? Well, by dimming the sun, of course. That's right, and while that may sound like the plot of a low-budget action film, there is some science behind the idea.


Harvard and Yale universities scientists claims that the global warming could be cut in half by spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere. They believe the technology could help solve the problem of global warming to some great extent.
The research was conducted at Harvard and Yale universities, who published a paper in the journal Environmental Research Letters, claim this idea could cut the problem of climate change in half.

The Technique To Be Adopted For Spraying Aerosols Into The Earth’s Atmosphere

They are calling the idea 'stratospheric aerosol injection tactics'. According to the paper, this would involve spraying sulphate particles into the Earth's lower stratosphere.

For spraying, a special kind of aircraft, or large naval-style guns will be used. Though, the technology is still hypothetical with no existing aircraft suitable for mission.


The scientists made it clear that it's a cost effective project to save humanity, “Developing a new, purpose-built tanker with substantial payload capabilities would neither be technologically difficult nor prohibitively expensive.

And The Estimated Cost?

The total cost of launching a hypothetical system in 15 years’ time at around $3.5 billion, with running costs of $2.25 billion a year over a 15-year period.”

Below is a diagram, as illustrated by Nature.com
Worryingly, if people who believed in chemtrails were to see this, they'd probably go into overdrive about the implications of 'spraying' into the atmosphere, and we'd risk more inane and absolutely ridiculous conspiracy theories.


There will be also the chances of potential risks including coordination between multiple countries in both hemispheres would be required, and Stratospheric Aerosol Injection techniques could jeopardize crop yields, lead to droughts or cause extreme weather, said David Archer from the department of geophysical science at the University of Chicago.

The Origin And History Of The Greeting, "Merry Christmas"

12/29/2018 11:44:00 AM 0
Nowadays, it’s common people to wish each other a “Merry Christmas” on the 25th of December, or every other day during Christmas season. The origin of this practice is a little unclear. But however, the term is believed to have been used by an English admiral in an informal letter, circa 1699. In the same era, the phrase was used in non-relgious Christmas song ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’, which is still popular up until today.


In 1843 Charles Dickens' published a Christmas Carol and it was around that time, in the early part of the reign of Queen Victoria, that Christmas as we now know it, was largely invented. The word merry was then beginning to take on its current meaning of 'jovial, and outgoing' ― and, let's face it, probably mildly intoxicated.  Also in 1843 the first ever Christmas Card was produced for purchase, which contained the the popular phrase! It was a perfect storm of popularity for “Merry Christmas” and the phrase became an instant hit for Christmas Greetings all around the world!
Above, the first ever commercially produced Christmas Card, which is still a very popular tradition.
Until references to Christmas became politically incorrect, it was interestingly in America (the great puritan bastion), that "Merry Christmas" was more frequently used — Britons preferring the more sober sounding 'Happy Christmas'.


Notwithstanding its vast origin, “Merry Christmas” has become a sort of universal term to communicate joy and good wishes during Christmas holiday season. "Happy Holidays" has also always been associated with Christmas as well as "Seasons Greetings", to share your holiday wishes. The term Merry Christmas doesn’t need have any religious bias and is often used by people of all races and religious backgrounds, during Christmas time.

Your Dreams And It's Hidden Psychological Meanings

12/27/2018 07:12:00 PM 0
It's no secrete that we all dream whenever we sleep, even though we sometimes tend to forget it just as we wake up. Nevertheless, some dreams have a lot of hidden meanings attached to it. Just imagine if the dream you had last night, contained the answer that you have been looking for? What if we could actually look at our dreams as a roadmap to our anxieties, hopes and fear?


Believe it, dreams are one of the most fascinating and mysterious parts of the human experience, and interpretation of dreams can give us a good indication of what may be currently happening in our subconscious mind!

The dreams explained in this post are going to cover some of the people reading this, so if you’ve been having a weird dream and you don’t know what it means, stick around and you’ll find the meaning here.

Here are the 12 most common dreams and their meanings.

1.  The Dream Where You’re Being Chased By Someone Or Something:

It indicates that you are avoiding issues in your life instead of addressing them. May be, your brain is trying to send you the message that you need to address the problem. OR That you’re just feeling
endangered  or under pressure. You might need to look at what’s stressing you out most in life.

2. Falling From A Height

This seems to be the most common dream, It simply means that you are losing control of yourself and you have fear of failure OR It’s believed to be a sign that something in your life is spiraling out of control, whether that’s your job, your finances, your marriage or relationship. It also means that no matter how hard you’ve tried at something, you keep failing at it and you need to let it go.

3. Being naked

A dream of being naked (particularly before a group of peers) is a sign of insecurity, humiliation, shame or feelings of vulnerability. Some psychiatrists are of the view that dreaming of ourselves nude may be a message to become liberated, get a taste of true freedom and break out of the ties that keep us chained.

4. Dreams About Failing Your Exams



If you are a student then obviously these dreams are a part of the exams related anxiety. But, if you have graduated many - many years ago and still having the dream/nightmare of being back in college and worrying that you are going to fail in this particular exam. Then, usually, these types of dreams relate to your job. When you were in college, school was your main occupation, so dreams about failing out of school can usually be traced back to your fear that something bad is going to happen at work.

5. Seeing large water body

This can mean you’re over your head or in lots of financial trouble. It could also symbolise stress or the feeling of having LOTS of big responsibilities.

6. Dreams Where You Can't Run 

The dreams where no matter how hard you try, you can’t run, your life depends on running, but somehow you are either running in slow motion, or it feels like you’re trying to run through an invisible barrier and failing ― is said to occur when you’re suffering from low self-esteem or a lack of self-confidence. You can also have them when you’re going through a current situation in which you feel powerless!

7. A Dream About the dead
