It doesn’t take much to be a rocket scientist

Filed under: Funny — hindumommy @ 3:04 pm

Rocket scientists, long considered the gold standard in intelligence among all professionals, are not nearly as smart as originally thought, according to a controversial new study published today by the American Association of Brain Surgeons

“It does require a superior intellect to function as a rocket scientist,” the article concedes. “Having said that, though, rocket science is not brain surgery.”

The article drew an immediate rebuke from a spokesperson for the American Society of Rocket Scientists, who blasted the study as “state-of-the-art pro-brain surgeon propaganda.”

“As rocket scientists, we take offense at this naked attempt by a devious cabal of opportunistic brain surgeons to supplant us as the smartest people on the planet,” the spokesperson said. “If rocket science is so easy, we’d like to see these so-called brain surgeons give it a try one of these days.”

  1. I’m by no means or definition a rocket scientist, but I still have acquired way more book knowledge than the average dude my age. Yet, I must confess, it is random, useless facts, statistics, quotes, numbers, opposing views and whatnot…still, I like people to think I am some sort of genius. Too bad I was always average to below average in english throughout high school (my grammer sucked, it wasn’t due to slack, like my peers’s grades were due to).
