Theory of computation (Turing machines, automata, computational complexity, algorithms, NP completeness, big-O) is ...
  • The crowning achievement of humankind
  • Awesome; the PCP theorem makes me weak in the knees
  • Pretty cool; I've even applied some of those things in practice
  • Interesting, but hard to understand
  • Something I've always wanted to learn more about, but never have the time
  • Something I don't think I'll ever really understand
  • Irrelevant for me; Never used it, never will
  • In theory the same as practice, but in practice it's not*
  • Something I barely survived in school and never want to think about again
  • Best left to someone other than me
  • A necessary evil in computer science
  • A tactic employed by CS departments to make their students miserable
  • A bunch of useless, self-important, academic jibberish
  • Too impenetrable and abstract to even make up my mind
