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 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.

Facts of life.  Schools might focus a bit more on these aspects - most kids could need to be made aware of this before reality bites.

Uncle Billy does make some good points, but even he doesn't have much concept of reality. He was born rich and had his life handed to him from the get go. All he did was take the free time he had on his hands, (which was waaaay too much) and dabbled in computer code. Don't get me wrong, Billy boy did alot for the US economy, but his "innovations" created a generation of lazy pple that veg in front of their computers waaaay too much.   Razz

Actually, the internet came about in the late 60s for military use. Al Gore simply played a big part in turning it into the  World Wide Web.   Wink

I read in an article a long while back something funny / interesting. They surveyed today's younger generation and asked them how they planed on making money after school / college. I can't remember the order but here are the top three.
1. Inherit it
2. Win a law suit
3 Win the lottery

Hard work was way down on the  list Laughing  Laughing  Laughing  Our tomorrow leaders
God help us!

TK I was just making a joke about how Al Gore said he invented the internet.  It was a cheap shot at that tree huggin, carbon credit selling, left wing jackass.

hahaha, Yeah you are right abt Al. Him saying he invented the internet would be like Bill saying he invented the computer operating  system.  Neither of them can really take credit for those things. Laughing
