    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%.

  2. Opportunity; A Commodian Wit

    You can spin any concept to play an integral role in life, but for this round I'll spin one that's always fascinated me; opportunity. My relationship with it is strained.
