Real life: they spend their time watching DragonballZ, messing about with their mobiles and copy their homework from wikipedia.

I have here a pile of of obligatory schoolbooks which have no creases in their backs at all.
He just (thanks to the lowering of educational standards because they adjust them each year to the common level) graduated electro technical something french.

I remember a year ago he came home with a BOOK he had to read for french language. Well he failed that test, he read exactly 2 paragraphs. TWO, as in 2.

I take offence to this!!
I am 16, Hate DBZ, only text and ring my girlfriend from my mobile and write 2000 word essays for my english literature class on Dylan Thomas's "Under MilkWood"

What you have there is a harsh steryotype of generation Y.
I enjoy making stuff in my spare time eg.. On the weekend just past i made a case for one of my USB drives out of Lego. Mighty Epic if you ask me.

Just my two cents worth.

Now where were we??

Please, FullyLoadedMan, please don't take this too seriously: I had to smile when I read first your post stating that you are 16, and then checking your screen name. Nice contrast!

Im not belittling your accomplishments, but when I was your age, I was doing latin to english translations ... one year later, and I had to translate Ciceros' orations against Catiline from greek to latin to english ... and in those days we didn't have leggos ... Lincoln Logs were the rage..

Dedecus in aevum quod in suus potissimus!
Shame on the age and on its principles!

Ciceros' first Oration against Catiline 258 BCE

My uncle on my mom's side was the President of the Interior Decorator's Association of Puerto Rico for many years - he was very good at it and also very, err, happy or something like that .

I'm newly liberated from work - I'm a free man (in every sense of the word) ... but I've been a software developer / designer / architect since school days many, many years ago in a galaxy far away, first independently, then for a semiconductor & system manufacturer, then for many, many years in a Big (4?5?6?) Auditing Firm, then for several years for a Cable & Comm Corp, then 1 year for a sat & cable programming provider ...
