Also, you sorta need a college degree to be an investment banker...

Now, if you trade on your own account, that's a different story (you still wouldn't be called an investment banker, though...), but you didn't say you did, so...
Maybe he's the mailboy at investment banking firm. It's plausible they handle accounts that own large portions of those companies. I can't see any individual owning a significant portion of Berk but a fund? Sure.

I go to school. I'm almost 16. And If I had enough time for a job, I would certainly apply for one.

How I'm able to afford such an expensive rig? Years of saving from birthdays/Christmas, along with selling a ton of things I've received over the years.

I own my own little drywall remodel business and it seems to be doing pretty well right now. It comes and goes , but overall it's been pretty good to me. Also....I have raced motocross for about 30+ years , and for about 4 years 02'-06' I worked at , and ran a huge indoor motocross practice and training facility. I have trained probably a good 150 plus kids and adults over the years on how to ride a bike , practice , race , eat , maintenance and so forth. I had about 3500 members at my track at one time and I loved hanging out with just about all of them.

Long story short....I almost died in June 05' from a really bad wreck. Stepped away from the sport until last summer (August 2010 )....and now I'm back into riding again , and will probably start working with kids again this next summer.

So basically, he's embellishing a crapton even it there's an iota of truth to his post...Whatever. Also, he mentioned owning a stake in Facebook...Facebook is a privately owned company, so he can't own a stake unless he was a managing partner of one of the venture capital firms that gave Mark Zuckerberg seed money to start the business up about 7 years ago. Yeah, somehow I don't think that's true...
