Noah and the snakes

Here is one I read in Scientific American many years ago.

It's after the flood, the waters have receded and the ark has grounded. Noah kicks down the ramp and says to the animals "Go forth and multiply!" All goes well until the snakes come to the door. "But Noah, we cannot multiply, for we are adders."

Noah is irritated. He grumbles, then grabs his axe and goes off toward a nearby forest. He chops down enough wood to make a crude table. Then he goes back to the ark and says to the snakes "Behold, I have built you a table of logs. Now you adders can multiply!"

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.
