## Giving More than 100%

From Dave, If we take the alphabet (A-Z) and assign every letter a numeric value equal to their position in the alphabet (A=1, B=2, Z=26), we get some interesting results.

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. Never thought about it like that before, did you?
