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 [sic]?
                                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
                                but they misunderstood
                                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.
