What I don't agree with is the megalomaniac attitude. Case in point:
"Additionally, I'd say circ arrest is more analogous to Lazarus-esque God-mode..."
God mode = creating life
Surgeon mode = modifying life
Surgeons are highly technical and analytical, most of the ones I know anyways. But last time I checked they put their pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us. Simmer down guy or your head may not fit between the A-pillar and B-pillar of your M.
I was joking. As mentioned before, I am dependent on lots of people (almost all non-surgical) to do my job. Also, I still hate Tom Brady for the tuck rule, so I found that insulting. And most of the time I don't wear pants.
