Absolute Moral Authority

Because plain old moral authority just wasn’t good enough — a mesablue production

Advancement

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 8, 2007

Robot doctors, as Insty points out are a staple of Sci-Fi, not because they are an easily recognizable future in science, but rather because Sci-Fi authors tend to focus on engineering and physics, and spending time in MRP or Med-bay tends to be boring unless you can engage in character development.

Well, it turns out (via insty) that someone made a robot medic which, has so far, shown some promise.  Why kind of promise?  Well, Kim Cattrall, doesn’t seem to be having any problems with it so far.

Brett Giroir, director of the research agency’s Defense Sciences Office also announced that the system, called Trauma Pod, has successfully “treated” a mannequin during a test, with no complications.

I should THINK there wouldn’t be any complications with a mannequin, can you imagine the lawsuits if even a mannequin were willing to sue you for malpractice?  I mean, thats just plain a BAD doctor if you screw up surgery on a mannequin.

One time I smacked a mannequinns ass without any indication that the mannequin would accept it, and I got off scott free!  Really I was expecting a law suit, good thing he had a good sense of humor.

SHE!!  I meant SHE! or it! or. . . . I’m so screwed.

    I heard a comic somewhere say something in the same vein about being a Medical Examiner. Something like ‘How easy is it to be a M.E.?? Doing surgery on dead people?? Even if you come in cross-eyed drunk and fumble-fuck EVERYTHING up, what’s the worst that could happen?? They wake up??’

  2. A mannequin joke, wonderful!
