Sounds like I have been somewhat misinformed?
In particular, I'm thinking of Cryptonomicon. I enjoyed it, and I do intend to read Anathem, but in Cryptonomicon we have pages and pages devoted to the Proper Engineer's Method Of Eating Captain Crunch. It was funny for the first couple paragraphs. But it kept going. It was, if I remember correctly, the entire chapter. And it stopped being funny. Eventually, it started being an obsessive justification, an insistance that this really was The Way To Eat Captain Crunch if you weren't an idiot.
