    MATHEMATICS : 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 a*s 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 A*s kissing will put you over the top.

    Hi Everyone!

    Hello GJeanne,

    I guess that is another way to phrase 100%. I prefer to state it as social engineering rather than networking lol. But the ol term of back side kissing still applies for sure.

    Instead of ass kissing...some call it networking and social skills. Depends on the job and the position....some call for that type of talent....and some don't. Just my opinion.

    Hi Everyone!

    WOW Miss Gigi,

    You are one knock out looking classy lady for sure sweetie! I am stunned for definately by your pure beauty my darling. I just can not get over your stunning looks, I am at a loss for words babe! As for the wink and comment, I definately got them, I just was not able to respond to such a beautiful lady as you, loss for words sweetie.

    Sorry, I will try to get my composure together to respond back. I bet you have all the gentleman swooing over you, I feel I am out of your league- I'm not good enough for your standards, lol (Chopped Liver) you know. Well, I will try to compete if you wish, as I am a lil flirt and tease, but be serious with me please as I am a beginner to you no doubt! Oh yeah sweetie, how creative would you like me to be? I can only say that I will give it my best effort. Take my pulse dear, is it high enough to meet your approval babe?

    Your such a cutie in my book, I am affraid of rejection, lol honey! You really impressed me too. Am I on a level playing field with all the other gentleman on MM to compete? Be honest to me as you stated in your field that your in and practice, lol? Level with me darling, do I have a chance of being your friend and going out with you?

    If so, and we are neighbors, would you like to possibly hang with me sometime? I do not usually hang with the Los Angeles locals because of attitude or issues, but I would be honored to try with such a beautiful classy looker such as yourself cutie! Let me know huh. Talk to you soon my dear!

    Hi Everyone!

    Well miss thereallovelia,

    I am sorry for not getting back to you earlier, but I have been traveling the last few months and unable to keep current with the MM forums. Again sorry!

    As for your theory on this subject, you need to focus on the percentages theory, lol. And if you concentrate you can be on top! or the bottom, as it does not matter. What ever makes you happy my dear, JK and lol. I do not intend that seriously, so please don not misunderstand me, I am just joking around, lol.

    As for Honesty and Straight talk sweetie, it gets you everywhere in my book, never mind the math, still lol. Remember that I am a lil flirt and tease, so take it lightly please. I really do enjoy kidding around my dear! Talk to you soon honey!

    Robtest...Being witness to some major Akissing years ago, I found it laughable & degrading for the 2 men doing it, like they had no sense of self-pride. A month later one was promoted, the other was transferred out of the department. They worked for a Bank. LOL That is the only work environment that I have actually oberved such behavior, and found it to be rampant! It is condoned by the superiors, because they had to do it, therefore, they expect those under them to do it! Pathetic & archaic thinking really.


    I've worked for a major bank Sharp1 and believe me I get the picture clear..lol..

    Unfortunately, depending on the person in charge, BS and Akissing sometimes will get you further than hardwork and knowledge.
