    Lightbulb Your Software

    Dayton White, a NASCAR racer in Logan Lucky, is interviewed during the film. This is what he says as he's shown exercising & eating in his posh mansion:

    "I'm not just a driver; I'm an athlete. Once I began sourcing really clean software, I noticed a total difference in my clarity and performance. Software is what I call my food, because when you think about it, your body is your Operating System. So when your OS may feel like it's working fine, a problem with your software can make your computer not perform properly and it will crash. So eating clean will make sure my software is working at an optimum level. All this will help you win."

    I think the computer metaphor is meant to be pretentious in the film (Soderbergh is always more sympathetic w/ the have nots), but I still think it's an interesting concept from a posthuman perspective.
