    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 mathematical proof based on the following two postulates:

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

    As every engineer knows:
    Power = Work /Time.
    Since, by postulate1, we know
    Knowledge = Power
    Then, knowledge = Work/Time
    Since, by postulate 2, we also know 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.
