Some Math + Logic

Postby cooran » Sat Jan 30, 2010 6:17 am

Hello all,

I hope you haven't read this before - a friend sent it to me:


Some Math + Logic:
Here is a little something someone sent to me that is indisputable mathematical logic. (It also made me Laugh Out Loud.)

Remember, this is 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 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, one can conclude with
mathematical certainty, that while Hard work and
Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there,

its the Bullshit and

Ass kissing that will put you over the top




with smiling metta

Well ass kicking will take you to 104% :)
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
