When does 99+1 = 60?
- Things need to be done perfectly. If one only finishes 99% of his/her tasks correctly but fails to finish the rest 1% correctly, he/she fails to pass. However, when he/she can do the rest 1% correctly, he/she can pass (Assuming 60 is the score to pass).
- There are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour. We can say 99%+1%=100%=60.
- Edison said Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. However, 99% inspiration and 1% perspiration result in a normal people (60 points).
