  1. He is right! My life has been a lie. I guess I will have to burn my engineering degree.

    1. Me too. And my PhD in computer science. Funny fact: watching Tron at age 6 is the reason I got interested in computers to begin with.

    2. ^This.

      Learning my freshman year that a logic probe is a simple physical tool and not some software construct like in Tron never stopped me or my lab partners from gleefully calling out, "Bring in the Logic Probe!" in our best Sark impersonations every time we needed one during an electronics lab.

  5. It may not be 100% authentic but I get the feeling that Master Control is pretty close to how Linux operates in the real world.

  8. Tron is was fun. Weird Science was the one that really sucked.

    The best was Real Genius, right down to the Hayes commands for the modem.

    1. YES! I love Real Genius, maybe still my favorite Val Kilmer performance.

  9. See- I don't really care about how computers work either way... I just don't like the Tron movies because they're terrible.

    1. Yeah, but the soundtrack of Tron Legacy, oh man.

    2. I got a vinyl record that's in the image of an Identity Disc that has Derrezzed/End of the Line on it. It looks friggin sweet but oh man it sounds pretty bad (almost like an over compressed mp3)

  10. We watched the original Tron in my computer repair class in high school. So I'm pretty sure knowledge of the inner workings of computers only adds to the entertainment, because it's so hilariously wrong.

  11. Anybody who actually likes "Alice in Wonderland" obviously doesn't get how rabbit burrows work.

    ReplyDelete
  12. And all those X-Men fans obviously don't get how mutants work.

  13. Anybody who liked Fringe obviously doesn't know how 1050's cowboy costumes or blankets made by grandma work.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Anybody who actually liked Chuck obviously doesn't get how electronic retailing works.

  15. SORRY but anybody who actually likes Back To The Future obviously doesn't get how flux capacitors would actually work.

    (OBVIOUSLY, you could only use a flux capacitor for teleportation, not time travel. Duh.)
