smart people work hard and get paid enough to travel, stupid people work hard and get paid nothing. im guessing from your profile pic and your ignorant statements that you thought homework was for suckers, right? you now perform a job that most people can do themselves (self-checkout lines). im sorry you ruined your own life, tony, but hating on these amazing people isn't going to help you.
If hard work was what made you rich, this country's 1% would be a bunch of 8 year olds in sweatshops. A lot of people work hard and get paid nothing, both smart and stupid, hence why the middle to low class comprises such a large percentage of the population. Spreading around that hard work is all it takes is only making it easier for people to justify that poor people always deserve to be poor and the rich always deserve to be rich.
A lot of wealth these days is inherited, or it's "earned" (I use the term lightly) by do-nothing brats who go to ivy league daycares and come out with a guaranteed seat on the executive board at mummy and daddy's company. A college degree doesn't guarantee anything anymore either...
All that said, you wouldn't really have to be RICH to be able to knock out most of the places on this list. At least, not as much as people think. Honestly, the baby is the multiple times more expensive thing else in the slide. Also this picture is cute <3
