Simple Maths - What Makes 100%

  1. A little something to lighten up an otherwise dreary day at work:

    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 questions:

    If: each letter is represented as a number:

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

    Then: H A R D W O R K
    8+1+18+4+23+15+118+11 = 98%

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

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

    And, B U L L S H I T
    2+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 conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it’s the ******** and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.
  2. Too funny, math can always provide a solution to the great mysteries of life ! ;)
