This is an old and well-worn example of a television attempt to incorporate IT security into a plot-line
It amuses me that Hollywood writers seem to believe that hacking and IT Security are some form of online, multi-player “Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing.” The portrayals tend to revolve around a scenario that goes something like this: “Oh no, our firewall is being hacked by an elite typist! He must be hacking at 90 words per minute, or more! Our only chance to block him is to type EVEN FASTER!”
I was watching a show about a special police task force in South Africa that was gallivanting around the countryside finding and destroying illegal arms caches. When they found a cache, they’d pile up all of the weapons and blow them up right there. The EOD specialist who was setting the explosive charges to destroy the weapons was wearing a shirt with a good tip. It said “I am a bomb technician. If you see me running, try to keep up.“
Many believe that foil hats are an essential tool to protect against government oppression via brain wave reading/manipulation. A study from MIT examines their effectiveness, and shockingly concludes that the foil hat craze may have been *created* by the government in a cunning example of misdirection, and they may actually increase the ability of the men in black to control the minds of the wearers. A True Believer©, however, has issued a rebuttal calling the the study into question.
