But that's normal, isn't it? Everybody does that, don't they?
Years ago on Barney Miller, a genetic engineer came in to reclaim a container of DNA that had been stolen from his lab (or to report the theft; I forget which). The writers of the show had the cops react with total and complete ignorance so that the character would have to explain to them -- for the dumb audience's benefit -- what DNA is. I complained about that at work, that they had such a low opinion of their audience. I mean, everybody knows what DNA is. And I had to be reminded that, no, not everybody knows what DNA is, since most of the audience had completed high school biology before 1960, the year that DNA was discovered.
Sometimes I do feel like a geek... especially when people around me seem to be lost in space about a certain issue and I say to myself "Gosh, it's so obvious! It's easy!"... I feel like a geek sometimes even here...
I used to be a total geek before I discovered Salsa! Now I am on the right track...of curing! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
