Dude what’s your Weissman score?

I admit I had to use search-injuns to find out that there is a Tsachy Weissman (short of Itschak, or “Isaac” — maybe pronounced like “Socky”, like sock puppet) at Stanford but the Weissman Score for compression is just a gag.

Wall Street Journal got there first, but had a lower Weissman Score.

(not to be confused with Irving Weissman….stem cell dude, likes hoops)

To be clear, of the five people I reference here, I’ve met two of them a total of maybe 5 times…

This is a gag, a sight gag, from Home Box Office and Mike Judge “Silicon Valley”:

edit to add, a couple days later: Michael McFaul is back at Stanford, and has been since the Sochi Olympics, which I learned of by watching a Charlie Rose show I had taped and ignored for about a month. Michael McFaul who I had met twice, 30 years ago, well before either of us had even a touch of gray.
