Starting with 2 well-known and widely accepted maxims:

1. Time is money
2. Knowledge is power.


Power=work/time

Since time=money: Power=work/money

Since power is knowledge: Knowledge=work/money

Rearrange: Money=work/knowledge

Therefore as knowledge approaches infinity, money approaches 0.


Rumour has it Bill Gates stumbled across this proof in Havard Maths and that's why he dropped out!

It's nice to know that Bill Gates found another hobby than trying to divide words and not numbers, no wonder he dropped out of Harvard.
Oh well at least now I can be happy with my Windows

Oh, I see. How stupid of me. Obviously that makes all the difference!
But I thought it would have been needless to type it also.

You can't reason formally with informal languages such as English. Perhaps this is why lawyers seem at such pains to create their own little legalese... when really they should adopt a strict syntax and symbollic notation (not that it matters as long as it is formal).

Well we don't need an equation to prove that men are idiots. It's just a simple tautology.

Footballers seem to make more money because people can sell their exploits. Men are stupid, ask any woman. Men love to make grunting noises while a bunch of other men are running around in a paddock chasing a little ball. Then they act all technical and stuff stating that the ball has to be chucked a certain way, and place in certain spots etc. To top it off, you can't get drunk watching a physicist at work.
