    Rule 10: Reference to F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (1994-2004).

    So this speech is anywhere between 8 and 18 years old.

    I think it`s a bit too outdated to "speak" to anyone in their teens today. I could be wrong of course.

    More importantly:

    Make sure to be born into privilege. This is no guarantee for success, but you will inevitably share social circles with lots of people who`s parents can decide who gets hired. This being the all important factor in getting a good job. Not your academic level, intelligence or achievements, but the character of your social network.

    The list is accurate EXCEPT for one part at the bottom. It is a pet peeve of mine "if you can read this thank a teacher". I call BS! I read to my daughters EVERY night before bed. They were reading BEFORE they went to school.
