".. lying to the newspapers...." Can't happen. Clearly he must be lying to the police.

Let me go up in the loft and dust it off -- I've not used it for years now ... ever since "the incident"

Is it for left handed kangaroos, or left handed application?

"Anyone who can make a buck out of suckers I reckon deserves admiration..." Speaking of which, I have a left-handed kangaroo polishing kit for sale -- it's in very good condition and I could give you a great deal on it :-)

Probably not so silly, Max. The guy probably saw an opportunity to make money from "the faithful who were raptured" (read: idiots), and only when he found himself in legal hot water did he start protesting that it was a joke. I did a bit of googling and the best I could find was this: Richard McCaffrey, the compliance and enforcement counsel who delivered the subpoena, said the subpoena could be withdrawn but the investigation is continuing because of what he considers Centre's contradictory remarks. "He was either lying to the newspapers or he's lying now," said McCaffrey." at http://www.religionnews.com/faith/doctrine-and-practice/rapture-pets-business-owner-admits-its-a-hoax. I actually rather admire the guy. Anyone who can make a buck out of suckers I reckon deserves admiration, because he though of it first..... If you have your wits about you, you're not an idiot and you're not greedy it's very difficult to be seriously taken in by anyone.

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.
