My experience is: line 2 is wrong! I assume, time=1/money. Always if I have time, my money disappear! I have only money when I have no time to spend it... But the conclusion is also interesting: doesn't matter how big your knowledge is (only >0)! You can always have enough money if you avoid working too much... Ok, I'll finish my work for today now!
