If I had a dollar for every patient I lost in Surgeon Simulator,
I could buy another copy...

I dunno, if the price is right it might be worth it. I can't imagine paying full retail for brain surgery...

Our hot air balloon operator was ready with a subtle joke when asked how many times he'd done this.

"Counting today?..."

Hey Subby... where exactly are brain surgeons expected to get experience that don't harm your sensibilities?
2022-11-19 2:49:30 AM  
Well, if the brain surgeon is hot, and brain surgery isn't what I'm their first at, we can talk...

In all seriousness, modern surgeries involve a team of doctors. By design, any "first" surgery a surgeon performs is alongside several other surgeons who have years of experience not just with surgery-in-general but with whatever that particular surgical procedure is.

Same with airline cockpits. Even if the movie trope of the pilot and co-pilot both going unconscious during a flight, the remainder of the flight crew has the skills and experience to land the plane without incident.

So....yeah, turns out professionals do things the exact opposite way Musk "runs" Twitter.
