11 Things You Did Not and Will Not Learn in School

Not sure where I found this, but definitely worth repeating...

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.  [MY PERSONAL FAVORITE]

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.

CAPT Mark Kelly USN RET / Astronaut / Academy Graduate / AR-15 "Assault Rifle" Owner / Hypocrite!

Normally I do not comment on the politics of the elitists in Washington, D.C. - this is an exception - because there is nothing worse than a hypocrite. Captain Mark Kelly USN RET, is married to former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Ms. Giffords was shot by Jered Loughner, a person with questionable mental problems, in January 2011. Captain Mark Kelly USN RET is a hypocrite - he unfortunately graduated from the same academy that I did - USMMA (US Merchant Marine Academy). I was once proud of Kelly - now I am ashamed of his blatant sham hypocrisy. On 5 March 2013 the hypocrite went into a gun store in Tuscon Arizona and purchased an AR-15 and M1911A1 pistol. AFTER he got caught making the purchases, Kelly fabricated a phony story about how he was showing the world how easy it is to buy a so-called assault rifle. Read the Facebook comments - allot of people agree - "hypocrite" is the appropriate word.
