Percentage Game
Born Dull?! Play the percentages game
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%.
How about achieving 103%? Here's a little math that might prove helpful.
What makes life 100%?
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 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
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%
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 * T
2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%
So, it stands to reason that hard work and knowledge will get you close, attitude will get you there, but bullsh*t will put you over the top.
And look how far a** kissing will take you.
A * * K I S S I N G
1 19 19 11 9 19 19 9 14=120%

Nice Calcluator...
S T U P I D I T Y
19 20 21 17 9 4 9 20 25 = 144%
(That's why some wise man said "Knowledge has limits but Stupidity & Nonesense is limitless)
