Sorry if this has been posted already and I missed it.
I thought it was interesting.

Summary:
Source code size can be compared in different ways.
in terms of Lines-of-code (LOC), in bytes,
or after compression which gives a rough estimate 
of complexity because it filters out things like the
length of keywords.  Interestingly, while some languages
show very different ranks before after compression
Ruby code is among the very shortest, both before and after 
compression.
