Yes, it was snarky. Yes, it wasn't really an answer, but, as the comments have noted, it's the best answer of the bunch (as evidenced by the 100+ upvotes it has).
Moreover, it's the only answer that states—if in a snarky, circuitous way—the fundamental problem with the original question: OP's code is dominated much more by the IO than with the speed of the respective languages.
I'd just like to also point out that, as
@thirtydot says, whatever problems this answer suffers from are more than made up for with the comments beneath it.
