What I Hated the Least Today 157/365: Optimal Tip-to-Tip Efficiency (NSFW)

A model for male audience stimulation

*The following contains no explicit material, but sexual implications are involved.*

Have you ever wondered, hypothetically, how you could jerk off the audience of a full lecture hall within a ten-minute presentation? Neither have I. Until I watched what is so far my most favourite episode of the Silicon Valley TV series. It’s a geek/tech comedy which is as funny as smart—not all of the time, but sufficiently so to make it worth a try. You’re likely to like it especially if you prefer entertainment that exposes popular clichés as being just that—meaningless rhetoric.

Besides Making the world a better place and Putting people first and Making a difference (I feel ridiculous only typing this nonsense), the show features a start-up at a competition where they have ten minutes to present their app, impress the judges and entertain the audience. That’s what happening in the following video, which considers the optimal efficiency for male audience stimulation. Based on this scene, a perfectly legit looking research article on the subject has been produced under the names of the show’s characters.

  1. I know how you felt when you typed up those sentences. I shudder to think of that nonsense too.

    But this other nonsense was HILARIOUS, and so well carried out. That research document certainly looks legit enough. 😂

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only who finds the video hilarious 😀 It may look perverse, but so is the Schrödinger’s cat thought experiment, for example – I mean, poisoning a cat? Even if an imaginary one…

      1. Yeah, I found it very funny, but I have a hard time seeing how it’s received by the US audience. I’m under the impression they’re a lot more sensitive about … certain stuff LOL

        1. The series seems to be critically acclaimed and popular among viewers as well. I find it mildly puzzling because it’s not exactly mainstream. This was probably the only explicit-ish scene in the series’s three seasons, so it’s not a representative sample of how the show looks like, but still, I also thought that rather daring for a US TV show. We know the rule of the thumb that graphic violence is OK but sex is a no no. * shrug *

  2. Its mind boggling isn’t to contemplate the actual physical implementation of such a premise…..who would evaluate it, keep records and measurement. Would that person be then disqualified from participating, what strategies would need to be employed to cater for the guy who was not stimulated and how might that alter the expected results what might happen if the stimulator wanted to be a stimulant?
    What if a woman in the audience demanded equal opportunity? To be either I should say though being the stimulant would create a whole bunch of different equations that would I’m sure send the mathematical stimulators into a climatic frenzy, so the speak….
    I’m sure you found this whole exercise stimulating in a very academic way.

    1. Oh dear, did you contemplate an actual implementation of this? I took it more as a thought experiment too appalling to reproduce in real life 😉 I did find it extremely amusing though. “Climatic frenzy” sounds about right, this concept should be implemented into the model as well!
