Ian --- I only meant that you cannot get an ordinarily skilled person to do the work of a surgeon over a longer period of time, as you can get an ordinarily skilled person to do the work of a bricklayer, though over a longer period of time ----------- Paul ---- Are surgeons then from a different species? All trades, that of surgeon included, involve a time acquiring the skill. Thus over a longer period of time you can get any person to do it - provided that you set aside the time for them to gain the skill. This longer period also applies to bricklaying - if it is to be done soundly rather than making a botched job of it. The time to aquire some skills is shorter than others but there is not a qualitative difference.
