This was forwarded to me at work, and I couldn’t pass up putting it here.
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this:
What Makes 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%? What makes up 100% in life?
Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these
If:<samp>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 is 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.</samp>
Then:<samp>H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%</samp>
And:<samp>K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%</samp>
But:<samp>A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%</samp>
And:<samp>B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%</samp>
And, look how far ass kissing will take you.:<samp>A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%</samp>
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.
