Bill Gates school speech...... very very good / interesting! 16:57 - Feb 8 with 488 viewsrosseden

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 doesn't care about 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.

The fact still remains he is right on pretty much every point...

It has been around a while but will probably end up good, timeless advice to school kids who think the world owes them a living.

Rule 12: Don't believe everything you read/hear (in the MSM, the Internet or otherwise). Did Bill Gates really say these things? These people think not:

It's not that important who actually said it.

Actually, the fact that they are (probably) not his words, takes nothing from them nor adds anything to them.

They actually read nothing like something he would say anyway.

More important things he has actually done recently include this:

Agreed. Illuminati-controlled pharmaceutical industry promotion is much more his thing these days.

I understand from some American friends that this story surfaces shortly after every gun massacre incident. Don't know/understand why, but apparently it does.
