"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."

Freaking right. Truer words have never been spoken.

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.

Very 90`s: car phone, and `leaving the coffee shop` is a reference to Friends.

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I think it`s a bit too outdated to "speak" to anyone in their teens today.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.
