"Dilbert's Salary Theorem"
and scientists can never earn as much as business executives and sales
This theorem can now
be supported by a mathematical equation as follows:
||Knowledge is Power
||Time is Money
|As every engineer knows:
||Power = Work / Time
||Knowledge = Power
||Time = Money
||Knowledge = Work / Money
|Solving for Money, we get:
||Money = Work / Knowledge.
As knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of
the amount of work done.
The less you know, the more money you make. (ask any CEO or MBA)

people are not aware of the best reincarnation of Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle's most famous character. Starting in 1984,
Granada Television in the UK
spent an enormous amount of money to recreate a section of London England (circa
1895-1905) right down to the carriages, gas lanterns, and costumes. They only
used stories by Doyle so you won't find Holmes fighting the Nazi's as we have
seen in other incarnations from Hollywood. Jeremy Brett plays Holmes and is
the most believable of all to date. Granada even goes so far as to end certain
scenes with the actors standing in the same positions as the illustrations as
in The Strand Magazine. The
series is always running on PBS in North
America and you can now purchase all 41-episodes as part of a DVD collection.
