 One deck. Fifty-two cards. How many arrangements?  Let's
 put it this way: Any time you pick up a well shuffled
 deck, you are almost certainly holding an arrangement of
 cards that has never before existed and might not exist
 again.  Yannay Khaikin explains how factorials allow us
 to pinpoint the exact (very large) number of permutations
 in a standard deck of cards. Click 'HERE' to learn about

 created by German mathematician David Hilbert. It's about a
 hotel with an infinite number of rooms.  What if it's completely
 booked but one person wants to check in?   What about 40?

Subj:     How To Give 103% (S249b, S454b)
          From: Joke-Of-The-Day on 10/31/2001
      and From: auntiegah on 9/25/2005

 We have all been to those meetings where someone wants
 "more than 100%."
 Well here's how you do that.  Here's how you can
 achieve 103%. First of all, here's a little math that
 might prove helpful in the future. How does one
 achieve 100% in LIFE? Begin by noting the following.

 IF :

     A = 1      B = 2      C = 3      D = 4      E = 5
     F = 6      G = 7      H = 8      I = 9      J = 10
     K = 11     L = 12     M = 13     N = 14    O = 15
     P = 16     Q = 17     R = 18     S = 19     T = 20
     U = 21     V = 22     W = 23     X = 24     Y = 25
     Z = 26


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


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

     But interesting (and as you'd expect),

     A  T  T I  T  U D E =
     1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%..... This is how you
     achieve 100% in LIFE.


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

 So, it stands to reason that hard work and knowledge will
 get you close, attitude will get you there, but bullshit
 will put you over the top.

 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 now you know what all those high-priced
 consultants, upper management, and motivational
 speakers really mean when they want to exceed 100%!

Subj:     Has Couple Found Formula To Win Lottery? (S607b)
          From: WNBC.com on 8/23/2009
 Source: (Removed from wnbc.com/money)

 MADISON, Wis. -- A double-lottery-winning couple in Dane
 County doubled their winnings again.  Verlyn and Judith
 Adamson of Mount Horeb each claimed a $350,000 jackpot
 this week for having the winning numbers in the state
 SuperCash drawing last Saturday.  But they didn't mention
 at the time that they also held two more of the winning

 They claimed two more $350,000 jackpots Thursday.  All
 four were purchased at different locations, but with the
 same numbers and for the same drawing.  The total winnings
 increased to $1.4 million, or about $955,000 after taxes.

 The Adamsons left a voice message on their phone saying
 they wouldn't have any public comment and referring any
 questions to their lawyer Scott Thompson.

 Verlyn Adamson, an accountant, said earlier in the week
 that he's a big fan of math puzzles.  He claims he
 developed a formula for lottery picks, but his winnings
 have been small until now.

 Thompson said the Adamsons are "exploring patent
 protection" for the equation.

 But Steven Post, a mathematics professor at Edgewood
 College in Madison, said there is no way to devise a
 strategy for finding the winning numbers in a game that
 uses randomly generated numbers to determine the winning

 The only proven strategy would be to "buy all the tickets,"
 he said.
