Today's Daily Joke

Dilbert's Salary Theorem:

Dilbert's "Salary Theorem" states that "Engineers and scientists can never earn as much as business executives, sales people, accountants and especially liberal arts majors."
This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation based on the following two well known postulates:
Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power. 

Postulate 2: Time is Money. 
As every engineer knows: Power = Work / Time.
Since: Knowledge = Power, 
then Knowledge = Work / Time, 
and 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.
