The Prof Confessions

Remember Professor Jasper Rine of UC Berkeley whose laptop was stolen recently by someone after exam data? What the Prof had to say after the incident indicated that the thief was in for some serious consequences. (You may read the transcribed Professor Rine's speech here.)

However the Prof has admitted that all he was trying to do was to scare the thief into returning the laptop. From The Inquirer:
In fact a University spokesman told ABC that Rine had indeed made the whole thing up to scare the student into handing over the laptop.
Seems like the thief knew more about technology than the Prof did!

My theory is what Rine said was all true, but he forgot to mention there was also LANL nuclear weapons research in the laptop. If not for that, surely they would have found the thing.
