A Math Lesson

Below is a mathematics lesson you were probably never taught in school.

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this:
What's 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over
questions: What makes up 100% in life?

If:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
are represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4 + 5 = 100%

B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T
21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you

A-S-S--K-I-S-S-I-N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can then conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While, Hard work and knowledge will get you close,
and, Attitude will get you there,
Bullshit and Ass kissing will put you over the top.

I agree, this isn't. But some of the technical advice I see given
here has me ROTFLMAO to the point I bust my gut. <g>

This is most exellent Gary, thanks.
