They aren't even ballpark representations of what a language is
capable of, except for the narrow domain of tasks for which you need
to stick a lot of data into a hash table and then make a bunch of
lookups on it. So, if you have a task where this is the bulk of what
you'll be doing, the results might have some slight real-world
applicability. Otherwise, it's just a silly game.
