Making The World Better, Part MCIX:

Dear Screenwriters,

I understand that you learn interesting bits of trivia while researching, and you like including them in scripts to add "realism," but Computer/IT people do not constantly remind each other that data "is all just 1's and 0's." We do not. Do you have chefs always point out that food is virtually all water and carbon molecules?

So knock it off. Please.

Respectfully,
-Evan
