I've spilt battery acid (which is sulfuric acid, and fairly concentrated) on my clothes a few times and although my clothes had permanent scars, I didn't. Once it's dried it's pretty harmless, and the fabric holds its structure until you wash it. It's certainly not something you'd want to get in your eyes, though.

I would agree with Himanshu_Gupta, that sulfuric acid, concentrated or diluted, is certainly not anything to play around with. If your room mate had decided to wear those dirty jeans another day he would have had some nasty acid damage and sulfuric ion poisoning. Probably not fatal, but very uncomfortable and with permanent scars. Some attempts at pranks are a very poor choice.

Did he know now about your prank and did he kick your a** later? Man, conc sulfuric acid is no prank material after looking at the ugly pictures that lab assistant make you look at.

I was only wondering if you had to buy him a new pair of jeans?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
