We've also forgotten to tell kids that it's okay if you don't want to be President of the United States and love working on cars. We need good car mechanics.

And, quite frankly, I know car mechanics who make more money than we do.

inflated at 3.5% over 40 years, $41k is $162k and $32k is $126k. these kids aren't that far off!

"getting rich takes effort" - tell that to Paris Hilton (and GW Bush for that matter)

"That's why lottery winners usually end up right back where they started" - usually? really? is that a fact?

Yeah, I thought of that as well, but I seriously don't think these kids were adjusting for inflation when asked the question! Do you really think they were doing that?

And I found that 1/3 of lottery winners later file for bankruptcy. Google "bankrupt lottery winners" to find tons of articles.
