"This would be considered hate speech." No, not really? You put literally zero hate into this so by definition, no it's not. In fact I would doubt anyone would consider this as get speech? Also I did the research, bill gates never said any of this besides the thing about nerds. In fact when he heard about this he showed support for "political correctness," and donated a sum of money to a bullying donation.
@Youtuber, Um, I think it's just trying to say that people nowadays have skin thinner than paper and would then consider this hate speech.
@Steven guy, More like "I want to be an unadulterated ass and not have anyone tell me I'm a jerk."
@Youtuber, granted you're right, but in today's world people will label anything they disagree with as hate speech. And while he didn't say these things, they are all true. Schools tend to be focused on telling you that you're special, when the working world will not care and only want results. And I don't think kids are learning that these days.
@Youtuber, though he didn't say it doesn't make it less true and in a world where people's skin is thinner than an atom where the word no is feared and self esteem before actual accomplishment is the norm no it would be considered hate speech because people are fvcking morons
Bill Gates didn't say these things, though.
@UmActually, doesn't make them any less true
@kyleywyote, uhhhh ...wow much?
@MrTrivia, why the fvck r u getting offended? Lmao
@UmActually, the only one I know he said was the one about being nice to nerds, but he did not say it at a school.
So Yea, it's probably fake.
@Sim0nSays , lol. Wow.
What? This reads like some terrible Facebook meme/email forward that your grandma would send. Or something that someone who complains about how "millennials are killing the *INSERT HERE* industry" would post. Get this stupid shjt outta here.
Do you know anybody who expects 60k out of high school? I don't.
Do you know anybody who hates their parents because they're 'boring?' I don't.
Do you know anybody who thinks minimum wage at McDonald's is considered an 'opportunity?' I don't.
Do you know anybody who expects to have every summer of their life off? I don't.
This whole post sounds like an 80 yr old man yelling at the kids to get off his lawn, but it's actually a bunch of squirrels and the old man is on acid
@VibratingButtChomper, edgelords gunna edge
@VibratingButtChomper, I had a $60k job once, it was 3 years out of high school though and I ended up leaving to pursue a job I wanted more
@VibratingButtChomper, I'm a junior in high school and I know tons of people like that
@VibratingButtChomper, I know many people like this, I am in high school
@VibratingButtChomper, when I was in high school, numerous "aggies" expected to become welders and make $100,000+ almost immediately after high school. They all believed they would go to welding school for 18 weeks, then become millionaires over a 2 year period. Now they all hang around town doing nothing besides having sex with the same 5 girls and drinking beer because that's all they can afford to do without work.
@EnteiLord, Having sex with 5 girls and drinking beer should be a life goal, not a failure. But your example sounds more like a problem with a few individuals rather than a large community problem that needs addressing
@Fix Your Grammar, "If I say 'Men are stronger than women,' and you point to me one man who is weaker than one woman; what do I do? Oh god is dead I suppose."
@VibratingButtChomper, yep makes sense to me
@VibratingButtChomper, do you know anyone with a car phone? I don't
@VibratingButtChomper, as an employer who's staff is comprised of about half high school and college kids I have this to say. I have had first time high school job applicants laugh at me when informed the position I'm hiring them for pays minimum-wage. Minimum wage at McDonald's may not be an opportunity to someone in their 30s or 40s but to a snot nosed 16-18 year-old, it's an position that puts both money in their pocket and gives them job and work experience. You know all those part-time students I employ? Half of them become" unavailable" to work a lot of shifts over the summer, especially weekends, because they want to go to the beach and they want to have fun and go on trips that mommy and daddy pay for, then they whine when their hours get cut back and new people get hired to fill the void. I will also say that I'm 40 years old and I agree with every word spoken in this post, as would most 80-year-olds who know what it means to actually work for a living and not just coast.
@Malice211, Minimum wage is $7.25? I don't think there's a job in this country that I would work at that pay. My first job in 2009 was at a hardware store and my pay was $9.00/hr, and I think that was fair for someone as inexperienced as myself.
But what you're saying is that you hire children and then you're surprised that they act like children? That's not a strong enough argument to suggest that you should view a broader world through the perspective of these rules.
Where is your cutoff age? Everyone above the age of 30 is a rational hardworking person? And everyone under 30 is a "snot nosed" kid who wants to go on trips "paid by mommy and daddy?"
So my ultimate question for you: do these rules represent a large number of people and it's a serious problem that needs to be addressed? Or do these rules reflect a minority of people and we're, in reality, probably getting mad about nothing in the long run. ----My stance is the latter
Also for rule #1, how dare we dream of a world where life IS fair? How dare we try to make the world a better place?Life isn't fair, we know, but we want it to be.
@Fight Club, well it never will be, that is the point when people say that. Dream all day it won't change it
@Scottles, we don't dream it, we Think it up and WORK to make it real! That's the point! Why settle for this world of imperfection and injustice when we can work and sweat and cry and crawl our ways to something better, and not only come out as better people, but a better society
@liberachi , I didnt say we shouldnt, but that is the point of that saying. And most people don't actually work toward it they just whine
@Scottles, the funny thing about calling people out for whining (not @you just in general) is when you call people out, usually you end up doing it yourself
@liberachi , that's true it's all whining, I'm not trying to I'm just saying, but it's all whining no matter what
This bears a passing similarity to a speech he gave about 20 years ago. He mentioned the bit about being nice to nerds, but most of the rest is exaggerated or fictitious.
@Truthcat, and it's ridiculous to say that kids like that should be more respectful of their parents. If you actually are a student who thinks that way, then you have horrible parents who don't deserve respect from you or anyone else.
Is it sad the thing that what jumped out at me was the car phone part? What car has a phone in it anymore? How old is this?
@Oujosh29, I had a '96 Accord with one in it. She was blue, and I called her the TARDIS
Even though it's facebook, these views are pretty spot on with what I believe
Uh oh, grandpas off his meds again
Thanks for the post Grandma.
Seriously, if I wanted shjt like this I'd go on Facebook.
