    and just to add on, let's take it to Snopes...

    Some Rules Kids Won't Learn In School:
    Claim: Bill Gates authored a list of 'Rules Kids Won't Learn in School.'
    Status: INCORRECTLY ATTRIBUTED

    ...

    This list is the work of Charles J. Sykes, author of the 1996 book Dumbing Down Our Kids: Why American Children Feel Good About Themselves But Can't Read, Write, Or Add. (Sykes' list was published in numerous newspapers, although it did not appear in his 1996 book. It did, however, form the meat of Sykes' 2007 book, 50 Rules Kids Won't Learn in School: Real-World Antidotes to Feel-Good Education.)

    note that you are arguing an outright lie is more "believable" than the truth
