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:<quoted text>
The true spelling is re-pubic-lick-un.
re-pubic-lick-uns read from black ops, making themselves sound important. However, most re-pubic-lick-uns have no hi skule deegreees, with upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc, & could never get a technical Bachelor of Science degree. IF they got a basket weaving deegreee, it was only due to a technicality.
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.
