Science

I've long used the expression "real science, so called because it can only be found in books and movies". From a talk at Pycon 2014:
The ideals reality of science:
  • The pursuit of verifiable answers highly cited papers for your c.v.
  • The validation of our results by reproduction convincing referees who did not see your code or data
  • An altruistic, collective enterprise A race to outrun your colleagues in front of the giant bear of grant funding
H.T to Daniel Lemire.
