Why don't you call his car 'rice' you seem to use that term alot

I did the smart thing and I'm buying a m5. Supercharging my 540i would cost just as much. I never understood why people like to be blown. I also am buying a spare S62 and in my spare time rebuild it with forged equipment for an eventual supercharge.

Successful people who didn't finish college are the exceptions - not the rule.

But I do understand what you're saying... there's definitely more dumb people with college degrees, than there is smart people without college degrees!

Oh goodness, this same speech gets said every single time something like this is mentioned.

Analogy: I can get up the stairs without legs...but it will be a whole hell of a lot harder. Those who became successful dropping out of college are one in a billion. In MODERN day, without a college education you're pretty much an expendable nobody. Let's be realistic, it worked different even 20 years ago.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not advocating anyone to avoid college, just don't go to college to "go to college".
