Dilbert's Salary Theorem - Proved

Back to Fun Stuff


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

As every engineer knows: Power = Work / Time
Since: Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, then Knowledge = Work / Money
Solving for Money, we get: Money = Work / Kowledge

Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of work done.

Conclusion: The less you know, the more you make.
