This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 yrs. experience. It has an indisputable mathematical logic.

 

This is a strictly …..  mathematical viewpoint… and 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 whileHardwork 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.

 

Now you know why Politicians are where they are!

 

I’ve never seen a better explanation than this formula. .

 

TO ALL INTELLIGENT FRIENDS:

I am showing this only to smart friends.

See if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common?

1. Banana

2. Dresser

3. Grammar

4. Potato

5. Revive

6. Uneven

7. Assess

*****************************************************************

*****************************************************************

ahhhhh, your peeking !! 🙁   go back and check the words again!!!!!!!

*****************************************************************

Answer is below!

Answer:

In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word. Did you figure it out? No? Then send this to more people and stump them as well. Then, you’ll feel better too.

Kid’s sense- funny…

 Why it is tough to be a teacher of the young.  These are young ones who listen closely to how a question is presented and answer appropriately.  Sharp kids…………

Kids make a lot of sense  …

  • Out of the mouths of babes…..
  • Teacher:  How old is your father?
  • Kid:          He is 6 years.
  • Teacher:  What?  How is this possible?
  • Kid:          He became father only when I was born.
  • (Logic!!  Children are quick and always speak their minds.)

_____________________

  • TEACHER:  Maria, go to the map and find North America.
  • MARIA:        Here it is.
  • TEACHER:  Correct.  Now, Class, who discovered America?
  • CLASS:        Maria.

_____________________

  • TEACHER:  Glenn, how do you spell ‘crocodile?’
  • GLENN:       K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L’
  • TEACHER:  No, that’s wrong
  • GLENN:       Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell it.
  • (I love this child.)

_____________________

  • TEACHER:  Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?
  • DONALD:    H I J K L M N O.
  • TEACHER:  What are you talking about?
  • DONALD:    Yesterday you said it’s H to O.

______________________

  • TEACHER:  Clyde, your composition on ‘My Dog’ is exactly the same as your brother’s.  Did you copy his?
  • CLYDE:        No, sir; It’s the same dog.
  • (I want to adopt this kid!!!)

___________________

  • TEACHER:  Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?
  • HAROLD:    A teacher.

The Card Stacker

Don’t Sneeze Or Slam The Door ….

Have you ever seen “a house of cards” that didn’t collapse?
Well, here it is…

Bryan Berg is a professional “card stacker” who builds houses of cards on a very large scale.
Trained as an architect, Bryan Berg is the only known person to make living building structures with freestanding playing cards.

He uses no tape, glue, or tricks, and his method has been tested to support 660 lbs. Per square foot.

Berg has stacked cards for corporate special events, public relations campaigns, and science and children’s museums in many U.S. Cities, Canada, Europe and Asia.

Berg’s clients have included Walt Disney World, a Lexus commercial, Procter & Gamble, American major league baseball and hockey, and the San Francisco Opera among others.
He also participated in a music video by The Bravery, playing a lonely man who builds a fantasy world out of cards.

In 2004, Guinness created a record category for World’s Largest House of Freestanding Playing Cards to recognize a project Berg built for Walt Disney World, a replica of Cinderella’s Castle.

In 2010, the record was renewed by him using 4051 sets of cards, over 218,000 cards, and built in 44 days, a replica of the Venetian Macao.

Will Rogers Sayings

Will Rogers, who died in a 1935plane crash in Alaska with bush pilot Wiley Post, was one of the greatest political country/cowboy sages this country has ever known. Some of his sayings:

1. Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.

2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman, … Neither works.

4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

5. Always drink upstream from the herd.

6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.

8. There are three kinds of men:

The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

10. If you’re riding’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.

11. Lettin’ the cat outta’ the bag is a whole lot easier’n puttin’ it back.

12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral: When you’re full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

ABOUT GROWING OLDER…

First ~Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know ‘why’ I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren’t paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it’s such a nice change from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable and relaxed.

Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it’s called golf.

And, finally ~ If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you’re old.

Southern Life

 

 Florida

A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the
dealership. Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the
wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

“Amazing,”
he thought as he flew down I-95, pushing the pedal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Florida State Trooper, blue lights
flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then
120.  Suddenly he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this!” and
pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.

Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked up to the
Corvette. He looked at his watch, then said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes.  Today is Friday.  If you can give me a new reason for speeding – a reason I’ve never before heard – I’ll let you go..”

The old gentleman paused then said, “Three years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper.  I thought you were bringing her back.”

“Have a good day, Sir,” replied the trooper.

Georgia

The owner of a golf course in Georgia was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help.

He called her into his office and said, “Y’all graduated from the University of
Georgia and I need some help.  If I wuz to give yew $20,000, minus 14%,
how much would you take off?”

The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, “Everthang but my earrings.”

Louisiana

A senior citizen in Louisiana was overheard saying, “When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana ..”

When asked why, he replied, “I’d rather be in Louisiana ‘cause everythang happens in Louisiana 20 years later than in the rest of the world.”

Mississippi

The young man from Mississippi came running into the store and said to his
buddy, “Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!”

Bubba replied, “Did y’all see who it was?”

The young man answered, “I couldn’t tell, but I got the license number.”

North
Carolina

A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road,
and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait.

A passerby studied the scene as he drove by, and was so curious he turned
around and went back.  He asked the fellow what the problem was.

The man replied, “I got a flat tahr.”

The passerby asked, “But what’s with the flowers?”

The man responded, “When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. I never did understand it neither.”

Tennessee

A Tennessee State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65. The trooper asked,
“Got any ID?”

The driver replied, “Bout whut?”

Texas

The Sheriff pulled up next to the guy unloading garbage out of his pick-up into the ditch. The Sheriff asked, “Why are you dumping garbage in the ditch?
Don’t you see that sign right over your head.”

“Yep,” he replied. “That’s why I’m dumpin’ it here, ‘cause it says: ‘Fine For
Dumping Garbage.’”


Y’all kin say
whut y’all want ‘about the South, but y’all never heard o’ nobody retirin’ an’ movin’ North.

A GERMAN WONDERLAND

AMAZING…

There have been little clips about this place for the past few years, it is still not finished but is growing to that conclusion as they will soon run out of space.  A short review…. it was started by two brothers as a place to show their hobby, it started growing by leaps & bounds.

 

Soon they were joined by other ‘Model Railroad Clubs’ and other craftsmen.  Some were electricians, model makers, carpenters, computer programmers, their wives would stop by to see what they were doing and usually bring them a lunch.  One thing led to another, 3 of the ladies had worked at a bakery,  several visitors would ask if they had a snack bar. The idea was planted, some of the carpenters came and built a nice restaurant area for the bakery and a kitchen too. If the fresh coffee smell didn’t get you then the bakery definitely would.  This was about 5 years ago. One of the Breweries came and furnished all of the tables and chairs, serving counter, etc.  Their latest finished area is the airport.  Planes look like they are flying and landing.

Colon

All the organs of the body were having a meeting,
Trying to decide who was the one in charge.

 

 


“I should be in charge,” said the brain, “Because I run all the body’s systems, so without me nothing would happen.”

“I should be in charge,” said the blood, “Because I circulate oxygen all over so with out me you’d all waste away.”

“I should be in charge,” said the stomach,” Because I process food and give all of you energy.”

“I should be in charge,” said the legs, “because I carry the body wherever it needs to go.”

“I should be in charge,” said the eyes, “Because I allow the body to see where it goes.”

“I should be in charge,” said the rectum, “Because I’m responsible for waste removal.”

All the other body parts laughed at the rectum
And insulted him,
So in a huff, he shut down tight.
Within a few days, the brain had a terrible headache,
The stomach was bloated,
The
 legs got wobbl y,
The eyes got watery,
And the
 blood was toxic.
They all decided that the rectum should be the boss
..
The Moral of the story?
Even though the others do all the work…
The
.. hole is usually in charge


Dementia-test your skills….

Trust, but verify! – humor

Comes a time when a woman just has to trust her husband …

 

A wife comes home late at night, and quietly opens the door to her bedroom. From under the blanket she sees four legs instead of two. She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can.

 

Leaving the covered bodies groaning, she goes to the kitchen to have a drink.

 

As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine.

 

“Hi Darling”, he says. “Your parents have come to visit us, so l let them stay in our bedroom. Did you say ‘hello’?”

Farmer Fleming

I don’t know about the good luck/bad luck part of this at the end, but the story is neat

His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.

There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death

The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.

‘I want to repay you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’

‘No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,’ the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.

‘Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.
‘Yes,’ the farmer replied proudly.

‘I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.’ And that he did.

Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

Years afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.

What saved his life this time? Penicillin.

The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill .. His son’s name?

Sir Winston Churchill.

Someone once said: What goes around comes around.

Work like you don’t need the money.

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

Dance like nobody’s watching.

Sing like nobody’s listening.

Live like it’s Heaven on Earth.

AN IRISH FRIENDSHIP WISH:

I hope it works…

May there always be work for your hands to do;

May your purse always hold a coin or two;

May the sun always shine on your windowpane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

And may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows you’re dead.

Now…..Make A wish!! I hope you made your wish!

THE TRICK IS TO FIND THE MAN IN THE COFFEE BEANS

This is bizarre – after you find the guy – it’s so obvious.
Once you find him – it’s embarrassing, and you think,
Why didn’t I see him immediately?
Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people.
 
If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein.
If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!

And, yes, the man is really there!!
