Just wanted to collect some of the best lines from the paper here. Feel free to add your own in replies.

  • "We question the need for Digital-to-analog converters"
  • "In the end, we conclude"
  • A graph measuring latency in bytes
  • A graph directly under the last measuring latency in celsius

Update: This reminded me of a prank one of my English teachers pulled in college. He and a group of friends strung together a bunch of large, incomprehensible words out of a dictionary to write a lecture. They then hired an actor to give the lecture, who presented himself as a professor from an ivy league school (don't remember which one).

While most of the audiance stood in awe, one professor standing the back caught on about 5 minutes in, and spent the rest of the lecture trying not to laugh.

After it was over, the president of the University offered tenure to the "professor".
