Had to laugh about shaggorama's comment on this reddit post.

I saw something like this on Hacker News, "Build a multiplayer NES emulator server in 47 lines of Go". (I don't remember the exact headline, but the number of lines was ridiculously low.)
This is similar fallacy to the people who are like, "we rewrote our app in Node.JS and now it's 47 times faster!" ignoring that it's probably faster because they rewrote the app, not because of some specific computer language. Gee, rewriting the app from scratch when you know the actual requirements, common edge-cases and gotchas, and the result was faster? YOU DON'T SAY!
