See those two pins? Well today I'm going to... stick them in you.

It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.
SE is a big game, isn't it? :D – Szabolcs

@Sjoerd Sorry, I missed your comment. I get 8000336 and 136 for output. What do you get? Also consider MaxMemoryUsed[] perhaps.

comment MatchQ-ing Associations (MMA 10)
@Taliesin Thanks for the clarification, however I'm afraid I don't understand it. If Assocation objects were standard Mathematica expressions then pattern matching would work by default, would it not? I realize pattern matching could be overloaded for an Atomic object as I believe it is for Complex, but I still think there is causation here. Am I mistaken? Also, can you Chat now?

@Schwarz As Michael said, the link to the original is inserted in the gray box above your question. You are not the first to ask that either. Do you have a suggestion for how that might be made more evident? (A matter of the design of Stack Exchange sites.)

@eldo I think that author was just trying to be funny, not negative or offensive. We usually welcome a limited amount of light humor around here.

eldo, you deleted your Riffle question. Are you planning to resurrect that (clarified, hopefully)? Do you have your solution?

Nice use of Riffle! That's my favorite way to double elements.
