I don't know if this is win or fail or just evil. You know those totally horrible segments in shows and movies where they try to talk about some technology thing and they get it horribly, horribly wrong?

Examples:
(click to show/hide)

Turns out, the writers are trolling us and trying to one-up each other. Which on one level is pretty awesome, but still its so cringe worthy it hurts!

And if thats not win, then the fact that Castle gets it right is totally win.

Supposedly journalists try to one-up each other all the time by including pointless puns and coming up with funny headlines.

They are all bad, but that CSI one is a whole other level of bad:  "I'll create a GUI interface in Visual Basic.  Maybe we can track an IP address."  And the lady on Jericho might have more luck if she typed an IP address that wasn't impossible.

As for Dexter, what the fuck is up with this recent "winning" thing?  It seems to be related to Charlie Sheen, but Jennie swears she was seeing people post on Facebook and Twitter about winning before his meltdown.  I completely missed the boat on this one.

I can't figure out what is funnier, the fact that TV shows pawn that stuff off as real science or that people actually believe it.

CSI: "I'm gonna make a GUI in VisualBasic and see if I can trace his IP."

Good God.. It's pretty hilarious that the writers managed to pas sthat off without anyone else noticing. I get that I only recognize it because of my inherent Geekhood but come on! I expected the average compuer-using human to know what a GUI is by now!

I need to pass that along to my brother.  He always gets too angry over the infinite-resolution photos on these shows, particularly when they come out of a security VHS tape.

Finally, a product that shows us everything that's wrong with the world but at the same time everything that's right.  Microwaveable duality of man, brought to you by Jimmy Dean.

That's not my site by the way.  Just the first one with the image I needed.

I got it at first, but then I got confused because of the guy right behind Jay Z who looks like he got into a fight the night before.
