Most Nigerians have at least two cellphones. Keep in mind there is nothing like “contracts” so you either have cash to buy a phone or you don’t. Simple. Credit card really does not exist. Big telecommunications company are making so much money in most African countries. Although their networks are terrible (MTN network is hellish) these companies charge so much to make calls, or use the internet. You either have a debit card or cash. Mortgage is slowly coming up but not popular. What does that mean? Although some Nigerians buy brand new houses, it is not as popular as building your house. You buy your land with cash. You hire an architect with cash. You do everything from the foundation of the house to the roof with cash. Some Nigerians will look at you crazy if you say “credit card” or “mortgage” it is just very foreign to us. Now, the banking sector is a bit crazy but that is a story for another day. Oh! Your money “suddenly” disappeared from your account? Sorry, you are on your own.

Harley is a gift from God.

The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.
