Dilbert's "Salary Theorem" states that "Engineers and architects
can never earn as much as business executives and sales weasels." 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
Since: Knowledge = Power
Time = Money
Then: 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.
Conclusion:
The less you know, the more you make. Thus, executives and sales
people make more money than the engineers and scientists.
