The other half of the battle

Even if you’ve never seen an episode of the G.I. Joe cartoon that aired on TV in 1985 and 1986, you’ve likely heard the expression, “Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.”

So you’ve possibly wondered—in a quiet, contemplative moment of repose: Just what the heck is the other half of the battle?! Fifty percent of the battle is accounted for, but another full fifty percent is undefined(/undefinalized). That ends here and now.

It should come as no surprise that the other half of the battle is not one thing. Frankly, it’s really quite astounding that knowing alone composes a full half of the battle. That’s really too much of the battle for any single thing to make up. To the contrary, the remaining 50% is a conglomeration of no fewer than eleven different things, as follows:

Knowing is graph the battle

Knowing is graph the battle.

  • Cooking (5%)
  • Cleaning (5%)
  • Popping (4%)
  • Locking (3%)
  • Singing in the rain (2%)
  • Watching cartoons (6%)
  • Solving crossword puzzles (5%)
  • Fighting (16%)
  • Running (2%)
  • Hiding (1%)
  • Crying (1%)
  1. so–where is the knowing half of the graph? i must be missing something.

  2. i should have known.
