Liar, since they are in the bottom 99% for almost certain, and HP for continuing with this idiotic "I BUST MY ASS OFF"ery that somehow is supposed to make you superior to everyone else. Seriously, shut up, no-one cares.

Delusional, and nearly impossible to replicate. Also, impractical to expect anyone to follow exactly. Plus it ignores certain unfortunate circumstances that happen to everyone and can't always be avoided.

First of all, it's almost impossible to graduate from a US College debt free without some help. And, how are you supposed to balance a good education and a 30 hr/week work load? People should have some free time, especially at that age, for the good of someone's psychology. Not everyone thrives on working all the time. Obviously this person is an idiot for not considering that.

Secondly, it's stupid to think most teenagers would start saving for college at 17. And in reality, it would be smart to start saving earlier than that. But, at that age, people don't tend fully understand things like financial planning enough to have everything organized perfectly.

Oh, so you got a scholarship, eh? Well, good for you. Not everyone can keep up with a 90% average, you elitist f**k.

I do agree with some points though. People with large personal debt can mostly blame themselves, depending on their circumstances. If you eat out a lot and shop a lot, this can happen to you, and you shouldn't blame wall street for that, per se. But, that's besides the point. The economy is largely controlled by the emotions of a few wall street people, and that is truly a recipe for a disaster. No amount of saving in the world can prevent you from an inevitable f**k up in the market.

I managed to leave college debt free. Mainly because here I don't have to pay tuition.

Of course now I'm unemployed and living off government assistance (and that of friends). Yay!

Working hard is not necessarily a virtue, kids.

How so? The whole point of him posting that is to show his superiority to everyone who doesn't fit into that particular box he sets himself. Why else boast of going to be in the 1%? I mean who does that, really?

     I understood his "I am not the 99%" bit to be declaring that he does not feel solidarity with the occupier crowd, not necessarily that he is the 1%. Of course, such subtleties can be difficult to communicate over the internet.

     The way I see it, so many people today suffer from a need for instant gratification & an inability to take responsibility. His lifestyle demonstrates a great deal of self-control and responsibility. I'll admit that his tone is slightly patronizing, but I still find his story to be something intensely admirable.

Among the many, many lies, exaggerations, misinterpretations, misrepresentations, and ignorance is the simple issue that while this person may have accomplished something that should definitely be a point of pride, most people around college-graduate age grew up with an inflated sense of wealth and opportunity during the '90s. Being taught from an early age that you're going to have to start working as soon as you can in order to accomplish something like graduating college is almost verging on a luxury. There are far too many kids that grow up being told what to do and exactly what will happen and how, but were then faced with the issue that they never had to fend for themselves or struggle to get by before. How can a 17 year old be expected to know better than their parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and society in general enough to plan for struggling through college? It's a pompous, ignorant, spiteful, and resentful thing to tell kids that they deserve what they've been handed by the generation before them, whether that be an education or an introduction to a lifestyle they have no chance of maintaining or understanding how to change. Our parents' tendencies towards fiscal excess and living beyond their means has put the vast majority of a generation in the extremely difficult position of being deluded into thinking they'll be fine forever and don't have to worry about saving or working for what we want.
