Salary Theorem

March 6, 2013

Dilbert‘s “Salary Theorem” states:

“Scientists and Engineers can never earn as much as administrators and sales people.”

This theorem can now be proved mathematically:

Given:

Power = Work / Time and,
Knowledge is Power

Substituting knowledge for power, we obtain:

Knowledge = Work/ Time

If time = money, then:

Knowledge = Work/ Money

Solving this equation for money, we obtain:

Money = Work/ Knowledge

Therefore, as knowledge approaches zero, money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of work done.

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

(I’d like to give credit to the original author of this gem, but so far the origin of this saga remains unknown – if you know, please tell!)

Given:

Nothing beats a hard drive

A floppy drive is better than nothing

 

Therefore:

A floppy drive is better than a hard drive

 

Sadly (my personal addition):

My kids don’t know what a floppy drive is
