For that particular useless benchmark, assuming linear scaling 
(it scales linearly up to 4 kNodes, but takes a 20% hit at 8 kNodes at
1/8th of the "mouse" on Blue Gene/L, whereas #1 is 64 kNodes), 
there's a factor of 3000 between a "mouse" and a "human", by 
just scaling up volume.

Notice the caveats (it doesn't work even now), and the 

Using more meaningless handwaving (Moore <mutter>, that puts
things at about 18 years away from us, or at 2025.
