From physics, we know that:

Power=Work/Time

Now, if we accept the postulate that knowledge is power, we get the following equation:

Knowledge=Work/Time

Accepting a second postulate that time is money, the equation becomes:

Knowledge=Work/Money

Instead of solving for knowledge, let's apply some basic algebra to solve this equation for money:

Knowledge( * Money)=Work/Money ( * Money)

Knowledge * Money=Work

Knowledge * Money ( / Knowledge)=Work ( / Knowledge)

Money=Work/Knowledge


Try graphing this equation for yourself. You'll note that, as Knowledge approaches 0, Money approaches infinity!

Thus proving that, the less knowledge you have, the more money you'll have!

I think you left out one part of this. Namely, that as KNOWLEDGE approaches zero, MONEY approaches infinity _regardless_ of the amount of WORK done. Or, in words stolen from another web page: "The stupid rich do little or no work."

Here's another one:

Re: balducci's post

If the amount of WORK done IS zero (constant), then MONEY doesn't approach
infinity as KNOWLEDGE approaches zero. (In this case, MONEY approaches
zero as KNOWLEDGE approaches zero.)

If the amount of WORK done APPROACHES zero (as KNOWLEDGE also approaches
zero), then MONEY doesn't necessarily approach infinity. (To determine
the value of the limit here, we'd need more information.)

Nitpickingly yours,
