Math Tricks
Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump you.

1. Grab a calculator. (you won't be able to do this one in your head)

2. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the area code)

3. Multiply by 80

4. Add 1

5. Multiply by 250

6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number

7. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again.

8. Subtract 250

9. Divide number by 2

Do you recognize the answer?

At the end of this, you are asked a question. Answer it immediately.

At the end of this, you are asked a question. Answer it immediately. Don't stop and think about it.

Just say the first thing that pops into your mind.

This is a fun "test"... AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give it a try, then e-mail it around (including back to me) and you'll see how many people you know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2%. You'll understand what that means after you finish taking the "test."

Now... just follow the instructions as quickly as possible.

Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the previous one..

This is not a cumulative test. Each section question is separate.

You do not ever need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind.

You'll be surprised.


How much is:

15 + 6

3 + 56

89 + 2

12 + 53

75 + 26

25 + 52

63 + 32

I know! Calculations are hard work, but it's nearly over..

Come on, one more...

123 + 5


Scroll further to the bottom...

A bit more...

You just thought about a red hammer, didn't you?

If this is not your answer, you are among 2% of people who have a different, if not abnormal, mind.

98% of the folks would answer a red hammer while doing this exercise.

If you do not believe this, pass it around and you'll see.

Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2% and send to everyone, including the person that sent it to you.

I picked a blue hammer

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint


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:  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.
