Came across this and had a pretty good lol.

The Less You Know, The More You Make
"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 a mathematical equation based on the following two postulates:

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

As every engineer knows:
Power = Work / Time

Since:
Knowledge = Power
Time = Money

It follows that:
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.

In fact, that explains another Peter's Law: The effective working time extends to the dead line.

Give a worker a job to do in 1 hour; he will make it in 1 hour. Give him a day, and you will find him working on it even during the last 5 minutes.

but one could argue that that is extremely efficient time management :D
