Speaking of nerds, we owe to their fantasies a great alternative way of resetting collective unconscious about science: knowing that everything  The Big Bang Theory suggests about science is a lie. A couple of episodes of the show is enough to expose you to a rather extensive and vastly redundant enumeration of the most common misconceptions about science readily on their way to very soon be as out-dated as the jokes about women and gays in Friends. (thank you netflix for enabling orgies of TV shows: they are making us quick at snapping out of the cliches they convey). Another thing you can do with  The Big Bang Theory is watch it as a documentary about academics. Just diligently replace in your head all instances you hear of the words “science”, “scientist”, “scientific” etc respectively by the words “academia”, “academist”, “academic”  etc.
