    Bill Gates

    Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this!

    Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things
    they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how
    feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids
    with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

    Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

    Rule 2 : The world won't care abou t your self-esteem. The world will
    expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

    Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.
    You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

    Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

    Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
    Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

    Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine
    about your mistakes, learn from them.

    Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they
    are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your
    clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were.
    So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's
    generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

    Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but
    life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and
    they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.
    This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

    Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off
    and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do
    that on your own time.

    Rule 10:
    Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to
    leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

    Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
    Success leaves clues. People who produce outstanding results do specific things to create those results

    Nobody cares what you did yesterday or what you are going to do tomorrow. What is important is what you are doing NOW to solve our problem

    THERE IS NO TOMORROW!

    Damn the sell by date on this has long passed, I see elementary kids with Bluetooth ear pieces for their cell phones all the time....

    Back in my grandparents time Burger Flipping was done at a respectable diner and a nickel could buy something.... Now days burger flipping is for immigrants and ex-cons, it's better to get an entry-level position as a salesman at Radio Shack or something related to a field you might be interested in, I guess if your dreaming of a Culinary Arts Degree, flipping burgers might look good on a resume.

    If you become a teacher you'll have summer vacations, if you become a writer or day trader you could spend all day in a coffee shop with a laptop tapping into a wireless hotspot.....

    If Bill had actually said this he would know about the technological breakthroughs that make being like a 1980's yuppie executive possible these days......
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Do you have a link for this?

    These statements do not sound like Bill Gates. His vocabulary and tone, and topics are often different.

    I've also heard some of these statements in chain email, before.


    If there's no link, you cannot verify who said this.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    -- Jack Lew, then director of the Office of Management and Budget, in Feb. 16, 2011 testimony before the Senate Budget Committee.

    yep- got it off email...thought it was decent thing, whether he actually said it or not...evidently...not.
    Either way, some good points of advice in there...
