My Note and/or Query answered...

Over on the Guardian's Notes and Queries page, I asked 'What's harder - brain surgery or rocket science?' I thought this was mildly funny, and was hoping for someone to be on the same wavelength and answer 'Come on, Anna, it's not brain.. rocket... never mind.' I didn't get that answer. I got proper answers. Ah well.

Rocket science, I'd imagine. Brain surgery is performed hundreds of times each day, worldwide, whereas only a few rockets go up into space each year.

Good question but that's a bad answer. He's talking about economics. And a rocket launch isn't rocket science per se, is it?

rocket surgery, i think. those rockets are always zooming around space, popping their rocket-shoulders out of joint and thus requiring rocket-shoulder-surgery when they finally touch down again. but getting them to stay still long enough to actually perform the surgery? forget it!

I thought that was cool. I want to think of a good question now.
