Part personal, part overall.
The squat is a much more useful exercise in your everyday life. You pick shit up, walk, run, and jump a lot more than you push stuff away from your chest. Pretty much everyone I know in the armed forces thinks the bench is a vanity statistic for this reason.
Second, the squat is much more full-body than the bench. Yes, a very heavy technical bench press involves the whole body and a ton of stabilizers, but the squat involves even more, with more muscles directly used.
Lastly, someone who focuses on the bench may think their big-ass pecs and tiny legs look super sexy, but any knowledgeable athlete will recognize them for the poseur they are. Someone with big legs and a small upper body at least has a useful physique.
The core stabilizes in both, but in one case it's just keeping you steady. In the other, it's preventing your back from collapsing under hundreds of pounds. Both use the core, and I'm sure the bench press benefits greatly from a strong core, but the muscles are much more engaged in a squat.
I think your last thing is completely true, but I would expand it out to just about anything where you really push your limits. Everyone should try to do this at least once.

Does anyone actually know whether downs syndrome people are really strong, i always thought they were. Are they banned from the olympics?
Hurrah! Did seven pullups. Could do five when I begun exercising roughly half a year ago.
It will take years to get to the 15-20 I though I could aim at. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
Just do a lot of them. I maxed out at 7 in highschool, took a few years off of serious athletics, got back into lifting and went from being able to do 2 to 15 in about 8 or 9 months. Do them to failure, then use assistance of some sort to keep doing them. Don't make them easy with assistance, use just enough that you can do it. I used to just put a box behind me and put my feet on it with my knees bent. I've also used those huge-ass rubber bands they have around gyms, though it's harder to tailor that to being JUST able to pull yourself up over a long set. You'll improve quickly.
Pullups/Chins are great, especially weighted.
they have their own Olympics
I hope this isn't serious...
I can't find any videos of special needs athletes performing Olympic lifts with a quick search. However:
A cursory search turns that up as the special Olympics record for DL, which I believe substitutes powerlifting for Olympic lifting. That lift is well over 300 pounds off of the world record. So, no.
Not to talk down special needs athletes, but Olympic lifting requires unbelievable coordination and technique. I'm pretty sure that most conditions that make someone a special needs athlete prevent or make it very difficult to achieve that level of coordination.
