How to get artifacts

Postby Adriorn Darkcloak » Wed Feb 08, 2006 8:36 pm

MATHEMATICAL VIEWPOINT

This is 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:

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 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 conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

A + D + R + I + O + R + N =
1 + 4 + 18 + 9 + 15 + 18 + 14 = 79

whereas

N + O + N + O + X =
14 + 15 + 14 +15 + 24 = 82

Therefore

Nonox > Adriorn.


Thank you.

Actually, Lilithelle's proven she can roll the numbers over and break stuff. And at 104 she owns all. Cuz we can't tell how many times the 100 was rolled :P
