What makes 100%?

my mom emailed this to me and I thought it was too good not to share...

This is SOOOOO true.

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, it's the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

I'm loving every single post!
I'd comment on every one, but that would be kinda creepy...
The quotes are great and I WANT those chocolate chunk and pecan cookies!
Now....where'd you get that cute little Firefox link button? I've looked and looked. I'd love to put one on my blog....Firefox Rocks!

Hi Kimberley. I just wanted to let you know how much I love your jewellery & your blog. I've only been making jewellery for a year, so very early days yet. But I find your blog & your work very inspiring.
I've added you to my favourite blogs - hope you don't mind.
