# OT: what is 100% (humour)

Not DIY but it gave me a chuckle:
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 the latters A to Z are represented by the numbers 1 to 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%
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 then conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and knowledge will get you close, and, Attitude will get you there, Bullshit and Ass kissing will put you over the top.

Another old classic[1] in similar vein goes like this:
Start with two postulates: (1) Knowledge is Power, (2) Time is Money.
Since (in physics) Power is the rate of doing Work, we can write (ignoring minor details such as differentials):
Power = Work / Time
From the postulates, Power = Knowledge and Time = Money. Substituting, we get
Knowledge = Work / Money
Re-arranging,
Money = Work / Knowledge
Hence Money will tend to infinity as Knowledge approaches zero, regardless of the amount of Work. An elegant explanation of why ignorance rises at high organisational levels :-)

and then
X = time * money
time is money, threfore
X = money^2
money is the root of all evil, therefore
X = evil

That should be love of money is the root of all evil, therefore
evil = money+love

Don't you mean that evil = money ^2
