1. In my old job I'd say: 'Rocket science? It's not even *railroad* science.'
Worked for a railroad, you see.

6. They pretty much got it all figured out by 1869 (invention of air brakes)
Just tweaks after that. ;-)

4. I know a brain surgeon
and he told me that any idiot who goes through school could be a brain surgeon, it really takes no brains, just the ability to memorize a bunch of shit

10. yes, well the man ended up going quite mad...
he had issues with the way he made his money, and it ended up effecting his psyche. He made millions only operating on rich people, and it took its toll on him. He ended up getting sued for discrimination and lost most of his money.

9. I actually knew some people who could rightfully claim that....
...in my previous place of employment.

And I can tell you this, an actual rocket scientest is way too intelligent to ever say anything like that.
