The season finale of Silicon Valley featured one of the best, most elaborate dick jokes in the history of television. That much we already knew. What we — a group of simple, math-averse television viewers — didn’t know, however, was whether all the talk of jerking and stroking and “optimal tip-to-tip efficiency” actually checked out.

Until now.

A team of Stanford nerds researchers ran all the numbers through various equations, and it turns out that, yes, Silicon Valley nailed it. I mean, I think. I got exactly two sentences into their 12-page scholarly report and my brain started going haywire and ringing alarm bells all over the place. Maybe you’ll have better luck than me.
