Mathmatics

This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 years experience. It has an indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud. This is a strictly mathematical viewpoint, and 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.

Now you know why some people are where they are!

    I've seen it more times than I can count. =))

    • July 9, 2016 at 12:05 pm

      Me too Rosey, me too. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the logical explanation!

    • July 9, 2016 at 12:05 pm

      You're most welcome. πŸ™‚

    Have a very intelligent Saturday Sandee & Zane. See ya.

      You've always been very smart Paul. πŸ™‚

    hahahah! But what does prevarication add up to? Cheers and hugs!

    • July 9, 2016 at 12:06 pm

      I don't know. Good question though. πŸ™‚

    The Secret of Life explained in numbers. Thanks.

    • July 9, 2016 at 12:06 pm

      Yes indeed Jan. πŸ™‚

    Excellent, i'm forwarding this to my kids.

    • July 9, 2016 at 12:07 pm

      Forward away Joe. πŸ™‚

  9. July 9, 2016 at 10:13 am

    I think I will stick with being an underachiever.

  10. July 9, 2016 at 10:20 am

    Brilliant and so glad it was explained LOL I am totally useless ;-(

    Have a mathmaticaltastic day Sandee 😎

    • July 9, 2016 at 12:08 pm

      I'm totally useless too Steve. πŸ™‚

  11. July 9, 2016 at 10:25 am

    I'm with you 128%.

  12. July 9, 2016 at 11:07 am

    Not only ass-kissing, but having a great ass will get you over the top. If it takes a hen and a half a day and a half to lay an egg and a half; then how long does it take a rooster to lay a doorknob?

    • July 9, 2016 at 12:09 pm

      Yep, I've seen that work too. πŸ™‚

  13. July 9, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    I'm a firm believer in attitude because it's flexible

  14. July 9, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    Whoa!!! That's a lot of math. I agree, though. Attitude is everything. And, having worked in an office, butt kissing does seem to be what success is all about there.

    • July 10, 2016 at 7:13 am

      It sure does doesn't it. I watched it for years. πŸ™‚

  15. July 9, 2016 at 3:23 pm

    By the letters, it adds up πŸ˜‰

    • July 10, 2016 at 7:13 am

      It does indeed Mike. πŸ™‚

    Makes sense to me! Happy weekend boating!

    • July 10, 2016 at 7:13 am

      We're having a great boating weekend. πŸ™‚

  17. July 9, 2016 at 8:19 pm

    Perfect logic. Although clearly someone has too much time on their hands.

    • July 10, 2016 at 7:14 am

      Way too much time on their hands. πŸ™‚

  18. July 9, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    Works for me!

    • July 10, 2016 at 7:14 am

      We've known every one of these kinds of people. πŸ™‚

  19. July 9, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    Lesson learned: Don't trust the people who say they are giving more than a 100%

    • July 10, 2016 at 7:15 am

      I don't either. I'm guessing you feel the same. πŸ™‚

  20. July 10, 2016 at 4:18 am

    complex maths equation but easy to comply with.

    • July 10, 2016 at 7:16 am

      I agree. It was complex equations and I'd love to meet the person that came up with these. πŸ™‚

  21. July 10, 2016 at 10:24 am

    This truly gives us the meaning of life. Thank you oh Guru! This will save us a trip to the mountain top!

    • July 10, 2016 at 12:37 pm

      It really does. You're most welcome. πŸ™‚

  22. July 10, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    The secrets of life revealed…. Good thing I am not too good at the last two behaviors πŸ™‚

    • July 11, 2016 at 7:29 am

      Yes indeed Jen. We know some of these people. πŸ™‚

  23. July 11, 2016 at 11:37 am

    Those math minds had healthy senses of humor.

    • July 11, 2016 at 4:08 pm

      They sure do. I laughed out loud. πŸ™‚

  24. July 11, 2016 at 5:33 pm

    It adds up in all the wrong places.

    • July 12, 2016 at 6:07 am

      It does indeed Binky. πŸ™‚
