And the truth shall set you free...

A post called 'Sweet, bitter truth' at Sweet Jesus, look who it is. made me chuckle and nod my head in agreement.

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: 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%
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, you 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.

And the truth shall set you free...
