Right. Here I had in mind the queue data structure rather than queuing theory.

Not only do few people have experience with science as a work in progress, they do have experience memorizing the results of long-settled science, and they confuse the former for the latter.

Good point. I think the difference between reality and fiction may be greater for science than for things more people have direct experience with.

We should say “reduced to theory“ rather than “reduced to practice.” For example, a Turing machine is a computer reduced to theory.

The phrase "reduction to practice" is backward. Should be "expansion to practice." Practice is bigger than theory, not smaller, because it takes more into consideration.
