Yes, funny but not.
When I was doing work on the "future of healthcare", a big uncertainty was the long term impact of the American penchant for seeking techno-fixes -- which recursively breed more fixes that fix the fixes, and so on -- versus more preventative and systemic solutions. But those are much harder. And we all have days when one of these suckers would be a life saver.
