Carmack being Carmack

He tweets:

I can send an IP packet to Europe faster than I can send a pixel to the screen. How f’d up is that?

Someone asks about it:

Transatlantic ping faster than sending a pixel to the screen?

Then it gets back to him, he creates an account (rounding error for ‘2 days’) and answers.  I’m not going to paste any of his answer here – go read it yourself!

It’s been a long time since I’ve had any kind of interaction with him, but this is Classic Carmack. 🙂

It’s also amusing to see his stats on the site after only answering a single question. 🙂
