       Ahh [Ian], I see your point. You see, it would be for everyone, so, the cost would be divided, and we could get many kinds of implants and tweaks cheaply.

       dead bodies (to practise on) cost a fortune.

       Yes, but you can always make one yourself.

       Children running around with knives, what could possibly go wrong?   

       This could work for veterinarians--they go to school forever currently. With the numbers of feral cats running around we should raise experts.

       From the description I'm thinking that a better title for this Idea would be K-12 Surgery.

       I'm missing the entire "12K" reference here. Is the theory that it should cost $12K to train a surgeon? Or is this an attempt to train the citizenry in survival skills in anticipation of the eventual Y12K catastrophe?

       I have taken the liberty of posting the youtube transcript below. The idea is redolent of halfbakededness. But the air of sincerity about it gets my bun.   

       here is the suggestion teach surgery in elementary schools and save millions of lives which will need organ transplants in the near future when their supply will outgrowth the supply of doctrines   

       take practical survival or into the approach used to mastic animals intended for would like hands sheep et cetera and plain cybernetic replacement game placing organs with artificial 3d-printed parts and reviving animals back to life after replacements   

       let kids into this with the mentality of saving lives and not exploring the anatomy the goal being not to disassemble but to make minimal damage and be able to me has some ball   

       surely take measures to save two concerning the contamination of blood at Sentara   

       use modern tools for holding the body parts tight under surgery it's not that hard but you need tools for precision not to hold parts just like when you're repairing the car on your own if you can learn to repair a car chances are that you can also repair human body just like kids can learn to hack computers because they have a computer from an early age they had access to the right tools and equipment from parking page   

       even if minimal equipment just like that one hundred dollar laptop is compared to supercomputer they could learn how to do the practical tasks that with the arrival of artificial organs and cybernetic implants will become increasingly irrelevant and need it perhaps to similar or higher degree to which today the dentists are needed   

       moreover these are the kind of tasks requiring human pattern recognition spatial awareness and hand dexterity unrivaled by computers not all kids are gifted with math abilities and this could be and area where significant population of otherwise get that people could excel it could create stable the long-term jobs that would be among the last to be replaced by robots

       If we could require the robots to somehow pay the living wage of the people whose jobs they replaced, that'd be cool. Not sure how you do that though...

       // supply of doctrines //   

       [bungston], youtube transcriber is broken. It was originally "doctors", not "doctrines". :'(   

       (Ah, and yeah, you made me laugh a lot with this transcription. Not even wrong.)   

       // K-12 Surgery //   

       [Vernon], fixed. :)
