Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
Who is more intelligent, a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon?
A rocket surgeon is by far the most intelligent. Rent the movie “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension” and you’ll see what I mean. If you (and your entourage—-The Hong Kong Cavaliers) can build a rocket car and drive it through a mountain and then fix a lesion in an Eskimo boy’s brain so that he can throw a harpoon again . . . Well, that’s pretty much the pinnacle of existence, isn’t it?
Not that there’s anything wrong with being a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon; some of my best friends are rocket scientists and brain surgeons, but if you can do both . . .
The next big step in human evolution will be the creation of a being that can do both simultaneously.
