We employed a grad a few years ago and he's a good Engineer. The problem is he's never read Hitchhikers. It had me absolutely gobsmacked and I nearly sacked him on the spot. The fact he's been otherwise brilliant was his only saving grace. The other day in an Engineering meeting the phrase "There can be only one" was said. Only two Engineers in about 20 got the reference. A subsequent audit revealed that our latest grad has not only not read Hitchhikers, but has never seen Highlander, never seen Bladerunner and FFS had never seen the Matrix. I wasn't even game to ask if he'd seen Starwars. How do these freaks even get into Engineering let alone graduate?
