Dilbert's Theorem

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dilbert's Theorem states that "Engineer's can never earn as much as business
executives and sales people." 

Theoem supported by 2 postulates

Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power.
Postulate 2: Time is Money.

As every engineer knows: Power = Work/Time
Since: Knowledge = Power, than Knowledge = Work/Time
Since: Time = Money, Than 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!
