Not sure if everyone has seen this:

Apparently Erlang is just above Awk in the totally arbitrary
ranking of langauges based on memory, cpu usage and lines of
code to implement the pointless tests.  :)

Interesting to note our beloved tool ranks down with the likes
of bash and awk.  :-(

Also interesting to note not one of the tests even beings to
show Erlang's strengths.  I guess Erlang does need better PR.
