    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 I 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, and bullshit will put you over the top.

    But, look how far *** 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%

    Working in an office environment, I agree 103%! I won't show it to the big boss, though. :D
