Really? Which measurements would those be?

Note that the above is rhetorical and intended merely to underscore
how full of crap you are; the salient point being that the risk
argument isn't a matter of "initial measurements" --- it's a matter
of the probability of the risk (which can be arbitrarily low if the
cost is high enough) and the cost of not preventing it (in which case
you'd have to argue with Bostrom, not me.)
