Engineers and scientists

“Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business executives. Now we have a mathematical proof that explains why this is true.” (Un buen chiste, vía Douglas Wright.)

El link a la “prueba matemática” llevaba a Geocities. Como se sabe, en 2009 Yahoo cerró Geocities y borró para siempre los millones de páginas que contenía. Liquidó todo. Tierra arrasada. The Internet Archive (Archive.org) hizo un esfuerzo para copiar todo antes de la desaparición.

Ok. Dicho eso, tengo un link nuevo para leer el chiste.

Pero previendo lo que puede pasar durante los próximos diez años, acá va el chiste entero:

Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business executives. Now a rigorous mathematical proof has been developed 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 x Money

Solving for Money, we get:
Money = Work ÷ Knowledge

Thus, as Knowledge decreases, Money increases, regardless of how much Work is done.

Conclusion: The Less you Know, the More you Make.
