Turing complete

How good is it that the people we work for in IT don't know what Turing complete means. They haven't heard of brainfuck and they certainly don't know what Big-Oh notation means ("Oh, is that something to do with .NET?" - certainly not you stupid fuck). This is why google is kicking arse.

UPDATE: Actually this is a perfect question to pose to prospective employers at the close of an interview.

Big Wig: Right Jones, do you have any questions for us before we consider your future with us?

Jones: Yes, actually, I do. What does Turing Complete mean?

Big Wig: Ahh, Turing Complete? Umm.. Turing Umm.. Ke?

Jones: C'mon man, Turing Complete. Surely they taught you this in high school computer science?

Big Wig: Ahh, no.

Jones: You're fired!

Big Wig: What? I'm fired! Get out. How dare you.

Jones: You're fired you fucking moron!

Big Wig: Get out! Security?!

Jones: HaHAahAHaHA You fucking MORON

Big Wig: SECURITY! Get this man out of here. He's a threat to national security

Jones: Eat this (bends over and pulls /dev/null out his arse). BAAANG!!!
