OK, well here's another plug, because I also ... erm ... create stuff for Hogweed's site and am his partner and co-manager of the site.  I'm the one who did the daft restaurant adverts and the one for Geddy Lee's electrical repair service!!

I hear more sighs coming on ...

Cheers for the link, Hogweed...loved the jokes, especially the "watch for falling rocks"...LOLOL  :D
Thought that you might enjoy this...

We've all heard that cliché about giving more than 100%, but we all thought that up to now, mathematically, it was impossible.....However, whilst working on a sequel to Hamlet, an infinite number of monkeys have stumbled across a simple formula that can work out how to achieve more than 100% :-

First, number the letters of the alphabet from 1 to 26:

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
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, applying some basic mathematics using elements that one would imagine would be required to achieve success, add up the value of each letter in the word:

D  E  D  I  C  A  T  I  O  N
4   5   4  9  3  1  20 9 15 14    =    84 %

B   R   I   L   L   I   A   N   C   E
2  18   9 12  12  9   1   14   3   5    =    85 %

 K  N  O W  L  E  D  G  E
11 14 15 23 12 5   4  7   5     =    96 %

H  A  R  D  W  O  R  K
8   1  18  4  23 15 18 11    =    98 %

A   T   T   I   T   U   D   E
1   20  20 9  20  21   4   5    =    100 %

This proves that neither dedication nor brilliance is enough, but that knowledge and hard work will get you close and attitude will get you there. However when one considers a number of other elements that could be used, one gets a more truthful answer about working at more than 100%:


B   U   L   L   S   H   I   T
2   21 12  12 19   8   9  20    =    103 %


A   R   S   E   K   I   S   S   I   N   G
1   18  19  5  11  9  19  19  9  14   7      =     131 %


So the next time you hear someone trotting out the old cliché, remember that 100% is as good as it can get…!

I've seen something similar to Gelert's mathematical theorems before, can't think where.  No doubt our beloved and esteemed Chancellor Hogweed will make good use of the information!  8)
