Forwarded from somewhere else: ----------------- Here's the answer to the question "why is my salary so low?": Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business executives. Now a rigorous mathematical proof that explains why this is true: Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power. Postulate 2: Time is Money. As every engineer knows, Work -------- = Power Time Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, we have: Work --------- = Knowledge Money Solving for Money, we get: Work ----------- = Money Knowledge Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of the Work done. Conclusion: The less you know, the more money you make. ----------------- Figures there was a mathmatical proof for my pathetic salary. - Steve
