oh, but this is wonderful

NewMexiCan has posted this video of a professor's warning to a student who stole his laptop. Skip ahead to 48:40 or so, though the rest of the lecture is pretty interesting, too.

Rachel & TRP - now we just need to get jobs as consultants.

By the way, I've just brewed a perfect pot of coffee.

Hey Lemm, the video has been edited so the warning has been removed. Can you sum up? Humorously, of course...

Nevermind, I found a transcript here.

Clearly, a student who steals his prof's laptop is in a world of hurt.

Just as clearly, a prof who "loses" a laptop with pre-IPO biotech data is going to see his name go right to the end of the rolodex of consultants.

And just as clearly, the nice folks at the SEC are going to have a very close eye on Mr. Professor's financial data for the next few years. And there'll probably be more to go through than some broke 20 year old's bank account.

So there's a few reasons he might have been so mad... the word "bluff" does come to mind.

Ding ding ding! Give Joe a prize. He was, apparently, bluffing.
