Big Ball of Mud maintainer (mostly Java, C++, and SQL - Perl, Python, and JavaScript as necessary) currently living in Charlotte, NC. I also tutor Java, Python, and JavaScript part-time at Franklin University.

Great examples. If you haven't watched it in a while, they really scaled back the use of that stupid holographic display on Bones after the first couple of seasons. I can't remember the last time they used it.
