Exactly! Not underpaid, not overpaid. Not paid at all, and by choice!

This thread reminded me of the Salary Theorem, which states that "The less you know, the more money you make", which has been proven mathematically.

Here's the proof that I saw on the Web.
Fact #1: Knowledge is Power
Fact #2: Time is Money

We know that: Power = Work / Time
And since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money,
it is therefore true 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.

The IRS seems to think I have income, though (drat!). But still, I think retirement is the perfect job for me.

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.
