Pied Piper Pic: Behold, A Pale Unicorn!


“And his name that sat on him was Erlich, and Profligacy followed with him!” (With apologies to Revelation 6:8.)

Sadly, Erlich’s Bachmanity boondoggle has led to his being unceremoniously bucked off the Pied Piper unicorn, stock-and-Board-seat-wise. (Chin up, Erlich—head of PR makes a lovely consolation prize!)

  1. I love your guys very much, especially Richard and Jared.
    And audience in China wants to see Jian’Yang more often.
    Have a nice day!

  2. Intrigued by the sitcom. It’s like the movie about how Facebook got started but with a comedic twist. Sure shows how even if your smart enough to make such a thing someone that has no interest in it can screw you over. Crisco Oil & Eburnt would have given it 2 middle fingers up! Nice work everyone on the show, writers, producers, etc. Great comedy. Oh and “Sir Bachman”, nice job dumping that stock! ??

  3. Fantasy Island:
    Actually, one can theoretically compress truly random data, however the
    time it takes can be very long. The idea involves encrypting that data
    into a form that happens to contain many duplicates, or patterns that
    can be radically exploited for compression. This duplicate/pattern rich
    encrypted data can be compressed again. Sometimes, the new result will
    be smaller than the original. So, if we can store the key for the
    process that creates the duplicates along with the new compressed result
    in a way that is still smaller than the plaintext, then we have just
    compressed random data!


  4. Unicorns only let virgins ride them. It seems his business acumen isn’t the only thing Erlich exaggerates.
