What Michael Phelps learned

He didn't learn not to smoke pot. Give me a break! Working your body to an extreme is naturally accompanied by kicking back to an extreme.

No. He learned he can no longer trust his friends. Michael Phelps learned that, now that he is famous, "friends" will happily sell compromising photos of him to tabloids, tell the media that he lost at beer pong, and try to sell his party goods on e-bay.

He's 24 years old, and he's learned that fame and trust are mutually exclusive. I feel sorry for him.
