I so wish I could take credit for this one but I can't. Alas, I leave you this to enjoy on your own...

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We
have all been to those meetings where someone says they want over 100%. So,
for those looking to achieve, I present a little math that might prove
helpful. What makes life 100%? Want to know the secret? If we change each
letter to their corresponding numbers, A - Z are represented as: 1 - 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, but bullshit will put you over the top.

And look how far this will take you...

A S S K I S S I N G
1 + 19 + 19 + 11 + 9 + 19 + 19 + 9 + 14 + 7 = 118%
