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.
