    i ams ure lots of you have already read this...


    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 Ė get used to it!

    Rule 2 : The world wonít 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
    wonít 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, itís not your parentsí fault, so donít whine about
    your mistakes, learn from them.

    Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents werenít 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 think you are. So before you save
    the rain forest from the parasites of your parentís 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 theyíll
    give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesnít
    bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

    Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You donít 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 youíll end up working for one.
