Yup.  That's a verbatim report of what he said.  Given he barely managed to get a B.A. from the University of PA, claiming any ties to MIT other than the fact that one of his relatives once taught there (an uncle if memory serves) is ludicrous.  I expect that if he applied there as a student, his application would go into the pile of joke rejects.

And sharks?  Nobody has been able to explain what sharks had to do with his failed teleprompter.  Perhaps it was the Las Vegas heat.  I hear his campaign was giving away free bottles of cold water.  He should have poured one over his head to see if it helped tamp down the incoherence of his babbling. 

What mystifies me is that people sit and listen to him patiently and take him seriously.  It makes us seriously consider emigration if he wins.

"So I said, let me ask you a question and he said, nobody ever asked this question and it must be because of MIT, my relationship to MIT. Very smart. He goes, I say, what would happen if the boat sank from its weight? And you're in the boat and you have this tremendously powerful battery and the battery is now underwater and there's a shark that's approximately 10 yards over there, by the way, a lot of shark attacks lately, do you notice that a lot of shark? I watched some guys justifying it today. Well, they weren't really that angry. They bit off the young lady's leg because of the fact that they were, they were not hungry, but they misunderstood what who she was? These people are. He said there's no problem with sharks. They just didn't really understand a young woman swimming now. It really got decimated and other people do a lot of shark attacks. So I said, so there's a shark 10 yards away from the boat, 10 yards or here, do I get electrocuted if the boat is sinking? Water goes over the battery, the boat is sinking. Do I stay on top of the boat and get electrocuted or do I jump over by the shark and not get electrocuted? Because I will tell you he didn't know the answer. He said, you know, nobody's ever asked me that question. I said, I think it's a good question. I think there's a lot of electric current coming through that water. But you know what I'd do if there was a shark or you get electrocuted, I'll take electrocution every single time"

OK - not SPAM, but an excerpt from a campaign speech by a current US Presidential candidate. Say what?

And surely the only the water between the 2 contacts of the battery would have and current. A bit like a taser. What is he going on about?
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.
