Yeah car wash guy definitely isn't average and has above average levels of aptitude. Some D students will end up managing and owning the car wash. Most will end up just washing cars though.

Spoiler:
We've been over this many times, but since some people like to pretend we haven't, I'm using my sig as a place to list the fairly obvious examples of treating whites as superior to others.

Now, when lazy and disingenuous people try to claim ignorance, I'm 100% entitled to dismissing them as lazy or disingenuous. Hope it helps!

The short list

What he didn't say was his dad owned the car wash when he was a kid.

This fictional character from an anonymous board certainly doesn't appear average now, but he was average in school and avoided all of the stress of the grades game. There is much to be said about having a low stress life and keeping things simpler. I think there is also a point here that an "average" guy can succeed, as long as one's definition of success isn't an impossible moving target. Let other folks save the world from Donald Trump and godlessness and Thursday Night Football.

There are too many (middle-class) students playing the dumb HS game the exact same way. I'm all for doing something different and easier (and better). But try telling that to my wives.

I really think we need to reset the parameters of this discussion.
