Mathematical Facts of Life
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint 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:
HARDWOR K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
and
KNOWLEDGE
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
But,
ATTITUDE
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
And,
BULLSHIT
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%
AND, look how far *** kissing will take you.
ASSKISSING
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, it's the Bull**** and *** kissing that will put you over the top

It's a good oldie Rich. The amount of truth in it is amazing!
Just make sure the fanny you smooch doesn't belong to a corpse or other person with a TP insuffiency:

Nepotism? Why bring religion into it?

Religion....? Dang it, my sense of humor switch must be broken today. Help me out, Rich  let's laugh together! Tell me how you're linking nepotism and religion. Sounds like? Starts with?

Isn't an ism a religion? Budism, Judaism, Fredrickism...

Capitalism?
Check your dictionary. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
nep·o·tism: favoritism (as in appointment to a job) based on kinship

Joe  don't forget sum the hyphens as ASCII decimal 45 each instance. Of course, then one would need to add 64 to Rich's numerical equivs for the letters of the alphabet. Then, you would be better off in lower case.

An 'ism' is usually a set of guidelines a group follows. Defined in the dictionary as "a distinctive doctrine, system or theory". Capitalism, socialism, hedonism, terrorism, racism, cannibalism, etc. Nepotism is favoring your relatives above others.
