Dilbert's Theorem of Salary

Here's an interesting bit of science...
Dilbert's Theorem on Salary states that engineers and scientists can never earn as much salary as business executives and sales people. This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation based on the following three postulates:

Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power (Knowledge = Power)
Postulate 2: Time is Money (Time = Money)
Postulate 3: (as every engineer and scientist knows): Power = Work / Time

It therefore follows:

Knowledge = Work / Time

and since

Time = Money,

we have:

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 1: The Less you Know, the More you Make.
Conclusion 2: This is the reason why bosses are paid more than you!!!

Take note: you still have to work so that Money will not be zero, because if Work = 0, and if its divided to any number, the number will be 0, then

Money = 0. I wonder if you could replace Work with something different like "Pretending"?
