Default OT: Why dropouts end up becoming millionaires

You must have noticed that going to school does not really guarantee you anything. The only thing it guarantees you is a middle class lifestyle. Yet we see dropouts becoming millionaires and making a living in business. This is the reason why:

Make sure you follow this model and ensure you understand every step because it gets complicated and clumsy very quickly.

Knowledge= Power

Money = B*Time

Power = Work/Time


Since Knowledge is Power;

Knowledge= Work/Time


Substitute Money= B*Time into the equation;

Knowledge= Work/Money


Multiplying both sides by Money and dividing by Knowledge,

Money = Work/Knowledge.

From the equation above, if knowledge goes down then money goes up everything being equal. In fact, lacking knowledge makes you the richest man in the world.

your logic is flawed. yes, drop outs like dell or gates go on to become the richest ppl in the world, but the percentage that actually make it is tiny. education = security. dropping out = huge gamble that more likely then not crap you out.

Yeah, why get an education when you can drop out and make millions of dollars. What the hell was I thinking.

all women are evil. As women = Money x Time and Time = Money thus Women = Money squared. And since Money is the root of all evil, Girls = Evil.

Money is the root of evil. Money isn't evil, so girls will be the square root of evil by your logic. So they're not quite there.

The list is way longer than that. There are many millionaires who didn't go to college.

Well Gain=Risk*Hardwork. So I advice you take the risk because without risk, there is no gain from the equation above.

some of the dropouts make it because they have nothing to lose, and that mindset helps them succeed. it takes the pressure off of ending up a failure...because currently they are in the same place if they HAD failed...nowhere to go but up.

risk can also leave you bankrupt, and so your saying that hardwork has no benefit, doesnt make sense to me...
