I enjoyed looking at the results.

The most interesting result, for me, was that inverting a matrix is
much faster in scipy than numpy. How can that be? I would have guessed
that numpy handled the inversion for scipy since numpy is the core.

The two calls were scipy.linalg.inv(m) and numpy.linalg.inv(m).
