    Maybe you just pick a topic at random, say CSMA/CD (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/...) and learn just enough to confuse the hell out of someone and say you wouldn't have a clue with apps because you're only interested in that very specific branch of networking technology!

    If I say I work on a debugger and profiler designed for superxomouters, they'll just stare blankly.

    Instead I say "I write stuff that makes it easier to make special supercomputers apps" and they're like "ooo supercomputers..."
