> Dilbert's " Salary Theorem " states that " Engineers and scientists
>can never earn as much as business executives and sales people. " This
>theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation based on the
>following two postulates:
>Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power.
>Postulate 2: Time is Money.
>As every engineer knows: Power = Work / Time
> Knowledge = Power
> Time = Money
> Knowledge = Work/Money.
>Solving for Money, we get:
> Money = Work / Knowledge.
>Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity,
>regardless of the amount of work done.
>The less you know, the more you make.
