A Math Lesson

  1. 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
    100%. How about achieving 103%?
    Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these
    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>
