The Slack thread that would not die

Abstract:

A handful of Julians get nerdsniped into a ridiculous benchmarking spat with all the other languages.

After a 1000+ slack thread that defied numerical stability, common sense and message quotas, our intrepid Julians won nothing but a few lost days of productive heckling.

It was beautiful.

Description:

Nothing about this benchmark makes sense, but we all had a kick of fun participating in it.

Hopefully you will as well from this whimsical little gem of a corner of the Julia community.
