Erm, fictional? It strikes me that this particular brand of evil is more the
norm than the exception. I think Bjarne Stroustrup put it quite well:
That said, I see nothing to suggest that such is happening here. I do have
objections to the shootout, but they're objections to the whole concept of
benchmarks in general, not to these particular ones.
