    Whenever I can't understand something really simple, half of my friends say --- "Damian...

    ... it's not exactly rocket-science..." and the other half say "Damian, it's not exactly brain-surgery..." [Sympathetic, aren't they? :-)]
    So which is more complicated... Rocket science or brain-surgery?

    Well, I do not know.  But if I needed brain surgery, I would not hire the cheapest surgeon available~~

    I would say brain-surgery is more difficult because every person's brain is different and one slip of the hand can cause irreversible damage or even death. I've heard that brain surgeons study for many many hours before each surgery to perfect what it is they're doing. The brain is the most intricate part of the body to "fix" so I would not trust it to just anyone, definitely not a rocket scientist! smile

    A brain surgeon can't build rockets and a rocket scientist can't perform brain surgeries. Both of them are complicated in their own ways.

    In terms of risk, more people would die if a rocket fails. Only one person die in a brain surgery.

    Which is harder? My pick would be brain surgery because i'm an engineer.

    I would definetly have to go with "brain surgery". Rocket-science, at least in it's basic form, isn't exactly... well, brain surgery, lol. It's more or less basic chemistry and physics. The human race, in one capacity or another, has been successfully playing around with "rocket science" for centuries. Not that we haven't also been playing around with brain surgery for centuries, but... I guess the key difference would have to be that whole "successfully" thing.

    I dunno about those, but if you want a real challenge, try rocket surgery.
