The last is like I saw a LONG time ago, where a physicist wrote that a 386/25 was faster than a Cray.

The 386 took 24 hours to run his problem. The Cray took maybe 100 milliseconds.

BUT....

It took him 26 hours to get those 100 ms on the Cray, so the 386 was done 2 hours earlier than the Cray.

Notice there are no more Crays.
