[joke]: 11 rules from world’s sexiest geek

I received this post from one of the group I joined, it’s maybe.. true haha.. (not trying to defend geek here)

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

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

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
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
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 (Don’t like this one but so true)
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up *working for one*.
