( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

CHANTING STEPHEN'S NAME]

>> STEPHEN: WELCOME TO THE

REPORT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NATION, TONIGHT IS THE THIRD AND

FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE

BETWEEN FORMER GOVERNOR MITT

ROMNEY AND FUTURE FORMER

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.

[ LAUGHTER ]

I'M TIVOING IT, SO NOBODY TELL

ME WHETHER THE MODERATE OR

CONSERVATE ROMNEY KICKED THE

LETHARGIC OR ENERGETIC OBAMA'S

ASS.

LOVE LAUGH A LOT OF OPTION

THERE'S.

-- OPTIONS THERE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OF COURSE, THESE DEBATES MAY NOT

MATTER AT ALL.

BECAUSE THERE'S ONE ISSUE THAT

COULD INVALIDATE THE ENTIRE

ELECTION.

>> VOTER FRAUD IT'S A BIG

CONCERN IN THIS CASE.

>> VOTER FRAUD ALLEGATIONS.

VOTER FRAUD?

>> STEPHEN: YES, VOTER FRAUD.

NOW, I'M NOT GOING TO BORE YOU

WITH ANY SHOCKING EXAMPLES OF

VOTER FRAUD BECAUSE IT IS

VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT I SAY WE CAN'T BE TOO

CAREFUL, FOLKS.

ANYBODY VOTING THAT I DON'T

PERSONALLY KNOW IS KIND OF

SUSPICIOUS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THANKFULLY, THERE ARE SOME

HEROES OUT THERE TRYING TO KEEP

THIS PROCESS PURE.

>> A REPUBLICAN WORKER IS

ARRESTED FOR VOTER FRAUD.

>> HE IS A CONTRACTOR.

>> SOMEONE WORKING AT A BUSINESS

IN A LOCAL G.O.P. HEADQUARTERS

BUILDING SPOTTED A MAN DUMPING

VOTER REGISTRATION FORM.

THEY FOUND 8 COMPLETED FORMS IN

THE DUMPSTER.

>> STEPHEN: SO, SOME VOTER FORMS

GOT DUMPED.

THAT'S HOW THE ELECTORAL SAUSAGE

IS MADE, FOLKS.

AND LIKE WITH SAUSAGE, IT'S

OFTEN TAINTED, AND ONCE IN A

WHILE AN (bleep) GETS IN THERE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

GROUND UP.

[ LAUGHTER ]

FOLKS, I CONDEMN THIS MAN'S

ACTIONS.

YOU DESTROYED VOTER REGISTRATION

FORMS, BUT ONLY EIGHT?

[ LAUGHTER ]

WHAT'S THE MATTER, WAS THE PAPER

STOCK TOO HEAVY?

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND WHY DIDN'T YOU SHRED THEM,

OR BURY THEM, OR BATTER FRY THEM

AT THE STATE FAIR?

[ LAUGHTER ]

FRANKLY, I'D HAVE EXPECTED

BETTER FROM THE ALBINO MONK FROM

THE DA VINCI CODE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW, OF COURSE, THE VOTER

WATCHDOG SPOILSPORTS AT THE FEC

WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE THAT

TAMPERING WITH VOTER

REGISTRATION IS A "FEDERAL

CRIME" JUST BECAUSE "IT IS."

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT I SAY, IT'S ALL PART OF THE

GAME -- THE DEMOCRATS TRY TO

REGISTER VOTERS AND BUS THEM TO

POLLING STATIONS.

AND THE REPUBLICANS ARE JUST

PLAYING DEFENSE, BIG D, 'CAUSE

THAT'S WHAT WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS.

OH, BY THE WAY, SOME POLLING

PLACES WILL HAVE LINEBACKERS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SO WEAR A CUP.

BUT FOR ANY DEMOCRATS STILL

WORRIED THAT YOUR VOTER

REGISTRATION FORMS MAY HAVE

ENDED UP IN THE GARBAGE, DON'T

WORRY, YOU HAVE A SPECIALLY

DESIGNATED POLLING PLACE:

THE DUMP.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OKAY?

OF COURSE, IF YOU CAN'T GET TO

THE DUMP ON ELECTION DAY, WHICH

REMEMBER, THIS YEAR IS ON

NOVEMBER 32ND.

OKAY?

[ LAUGHTER ]

I BELIEVE THAT'S A THRENSDAY,

WE'LL CHECK ON THAT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

YOU CAN JUST WRITE YOUR VOTE ON

A PIECE OF LEGAL SIZED PAPER.

OKAY?

PUT YOUR VOTE THRON.

AND THEN, DON'T FORGET TO DEPOZ

IT-6--- DEPOSIT IT IN

ONE OF THESE HANDY HOME BALLOT

BOXES.

SO CONVENIENT!

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

POINT IS, IT'S YOUR

RESPONSIBILITY TO HAVE YOUR VOTE

COUNTED ON ELECTION DAY.

UNLESS YOU VOTED FOR OBAMA IN

2008.

VOTING FOR THE SAME GUY TWICE IS

A FEDERAL CRIME.

[ LAUGHTER ]

FOR OBAMA, AFTER THE WAY HE HAS

CYNICALLY ENGAGED IN CLASS

WARFARE.

>> WHEN GOVERNOR ROMNEY SAYS HE

HAS A FIVE-POINT PLAN-- GOVERNOR

ROMNEY DOESN'T HAVE A FIVE-POINT

PLAN, HE HAS A ONE-POINT PLAN.

AND THAT PLAN IS TO TO MAKE SURE

PEOPLE AT THE TOP PLAY BY A

DIFFERENT SET OF RULES.

>> STEPHEN: OH PLEASE, MR.

PRESIDENT, EVERYONE PLAYS BY THE

SAME SET OF RULES, AND AT THE

END OF THE GAME, THE RICH FLIP

THE BOARD OVER AND YELL "I WIN."

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW, LUCKILY, SOME OF AMERICA'S

TOP CEO'S ARE ASSURING A ROMNEY

VICTORY BY DOING THE

UNTHINKABLE: TALKING TO THEIR

EMPLOYEES.

>> DAVID SIEGEL IS THE OWNER OF

THE LARGEST PRIVATELY HELD

TIMESHARE COMPANY IN THE WORLD,

A BILLIONAIRE.

HE SENT THIS E-MAIL TO HIS 7,000

EMPLOYEES SAYING, QUOTE, "IF ANY

NEW TAXES ARE LEVIED ON ME OR MY

COMPANY, AS OUR CURRENT

PRESIDENT PLANS, I WILL HAVE NO

CHOICE BUT TO REDUCE THE SIZE OF

THIS COMPANY.

THIS MEANS FEWER JOBS, LESS

BENEFITS AND CERTAINLY LESS

OPPORTUNITY FOR EVERYONE.

>> THIS IS AN EMAIL FROM ARTHUR

ALLEN, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF ASG

SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS.

SUBJECT: WILL THE US PRESIDENTAL

ELECTION DIRECTLY IMPACT YOUR

FUTURE JOBS AT ASG?

I CAN TELL YOU IF THE US

REELECTS PRESIDENT OBAMA, OUR

CHANCES OF STAYING INDEPENDENT

ARE ARE SLIM TO NONE.

IF WE FAIL AS A NATION TO MAKE

THE RIGHT CHOICE AND WE LOSE OUR

INDEPENDENCE AS A COMPANY, I

DON'T WANT TO HEAR ANY

COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE FALLOUT

THAT WILL MOST LIKELY COME.

>> STEPHEN: YEAH.

IF THESE CEOs OR THEIR COMPANIES

HAVE THEIR TAXES RAISED, YOU

EMPLOYEES WILL LOSE YOUR JOBS.

WHICH WOULD BE TERRIBLE, BECAUSE

THEN YOU COULDN'T WORK AT THAT

GREAT PLACE WHERE YOUR BOSS

THREATENS YOU!

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW SOME CALL THIS CEO

BLACKMAIL.

BUT, FOLKS, I JUST CALL IT

EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WHY WASTE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS

OF DOLLARS ON SUPER PAC ADS THAT

MAY OR MAY NOT BE EFFECTIVE,

WHEN YOU CAN DELIVER A MESSAGE

THAT WILL REALLY HIT HOME --

"VOTE FOR ROMNEY OR YOU'LL LOSE

YOUR HOME."

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND IT'S ALSO GREAT FOR THE

EMPLOYEES.

AS WESTGATE TIMESHARE CEO DAVID

SIEGEL TOLD BLOOMBERG BUSINESS

WEEK, QUOTE, "I'VE ALWAYS LOOKED

OUT FOR THEIR BEST INTERESTS.

WE'RE LIKE A FAMILY.

THEY'RE LIKE MY CHILDREN, AND

I'M THE JEWISH MOTHER TELLING

THEM TO EAT THEIR SPINACH AND

VOTE FOR ROMNEY."

[ LAUGHTER ]

EXACTLY.

A CORPORATION IS LIKE A BIG

FAMILY AND DAVE SIEGEL IS JUST A

JEWISH MOM TELLING YOU "EAT YOUR

SPINACH, BUBALA, OR I WILL

FINISH THE JOB THE MOHEL

STARTED.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

AND NOW THANKS TO AN AUGUST FEC

RULING, JOB CREATORS HAVE AN

EVEN MORE POWERFUL TOOL AT THEIR

DISPOSAL.

SEE, BACK IN 2010, TWO EMPLOYEES

OF THE UNITED PUBLIC WORKERS

UNION WERE ALLEGEDLY FIRED AFTER

"REFUSING TO COMPLY WITH A UPW

REQUEST TO SIGN-WAVE, PHONE

BANK, CANVASS AND CONTRIBUTE TO

DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL

CANDIDATE COLLEEN HANABUSA'S

CAMPAIGN."

THAT IS SHOCKING.

IT'S POSSIBLE TO GET FIRED FROM

A UNION JOB.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THE CASE WAS BROUGHT TO THE FEC,

WHO DEADLOCKED 3-3 ALONG PARTY

LINES WHICH, BY FEC RULES MEANS

IT ISN'T LEGAL OR ILLEGAL, WHICH

REALLY MEANS IT'S LEGAL.

SAME WAY THAT IF YOU SAY

(speaking rapidly)

"MOM-CAN-I-HAVE-A-COOKIE?" AND

SHE SAYS, "WHAT?" THAT MEANS

YES.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW, THE REPUBLICAN COMMISIONERS

WROTE THAT IN A POST-CITIZEN'S

UNITED WORLD

"REQUIRING EMPLOYEES TO WORK ON

INDEPENDENT EXPENDITURES FOR

EITHER THE UNION OR A SUPER PAC

IS NOT A VIOLATION OF THE ACT OR

COMMISSION REGULATIONS."

WHICH MEANS, A CEO CAN NOW

REQUIRE HIS EMPLOYEES TO

CAMPAIGN FOR THE CANDIDATE OF

HIS CHOICE, AND THE EMPLOYEE HAS

NO CHOICE.

IT'S JUST ANOTHER JOB DUTY.

LIKE "HAVE THAT REPORT ON MY

DESK BY FIVE."

"CHANGE THE PRINTER TONER."

"GO TO OHIO AND STAND BEHIND

ROMNEY WHILE BEING BLACK."

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW, FOLKS --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

BIG FANS OF BEING BLACK TONIGHT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW, FOLKS, I'VE GOT A STAFF OF

ALMOST 100.

MOST OF THEM ARE HIPSTER

BROOKLYNITES WHO NEED OBAMACARE,

BECAUSE INSURANCE CONSIDERS

STUPID MUSTACHES A PRE-EXISTING

CONDITION.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT THANKS TO THE FEC, THEY'RE

NOT HUMANS, THEY'RE JUST COMPANY

ASSETS THAT I MAY LEGALLY

DONATE.

JAY, GET YOUR ASSET OUT HERE.

JAY THE INTERN, EVERYBODY.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

THANKS FOR COMING.

ALL RIGHT.

GREAT NEWS, JAY!

I'M NOW PAYING YOU--

>> OH, AWESOME!

>> STEPHEN: -- TO GO TO OHIO AND

KNOCK ON DOORS FOR MITT ROMNEY.

>> WHAT?

I'M VOTING FOR OBAMA.

>> STEPHEN: SHH!

NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE

VOTING FOR.

THE SECRET BALLOT IS THE BEDROCK

OF OUR LIBERTY.

NOW GET IN THE CRATE.

GO ON.

COME ON, GET MOVING.

GET IN.

ALL RIGHT.

DON'T WORRY.

THERE YOU GO.

DON'T WORRY, JAY IT'S SECOND-DAY

AIR.

OKAY?

GOT SOME AIR HOLES FOR YOU

THERE, BUDDY.

OKAY?

[HAMMERING]

HOW ARE THOSE AIR HOLES, JAY?

>> FINE, BUT THERE'S NOTHING IN

HERE TO EAT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> STEPHEN: GETTING HOT IN

THERE?

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

SAVE YOUR RECEIPTS!

THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS.

THANK YOU, FEC OR WHOEVER

EMPLOYS THE FEC AND MADE THEM

VOTE THIS WAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

WELCOME BACK.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

NATION, IT'S NEVER BEEN EASY FOR

A CONSERVATIVE LIKE ME TO LIVE

IN NEW YORK.

IT'S THE POSTER CHILD FOR THE

LIBERAL AGENDA, FROM PUBLIC

TRANSPORTATION TO LEGALIZED

BROADWAY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND THINGS ARE ONLY GETTING

WORSE, THANKS TO DEMOCRAT

GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO WHO HAS

ANNOUNCED THAT HE WILL NOT

APPROVE A RAISE FOR STATE

LAWMAKERS UNTIL THEY

DECRIMINALIZE MARIJUANA.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

NATION, I'VE SEEN STONERS TRY TO

TURN A LOT OF THINGS INTO BONGS,

BUT NEVER AN ENTIRE STATEHOUSE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

FOLKS, MARIJUANA USERS MOVE ON

TO HARDER STUFF LIKE WEED,

GRASS, GANJA, YAY-MAN, OPTIMUS

PRIME-LEAF, DUTCH ARUGULA,

GROMP, ZUFF, CHONK, NOOP, AND

MEXICAN LUNG CONFETTI.

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND I MADE HALF OF THOSE UP.

PLUS, POT CAN MAKE YOU PARANOID.

YEAH, I'M TALKING TO YOU,

[ LAUGHTER ]

SITTING THERE RIGHT NOW WATCHING

THE SHOW WITH YOUR PARENTS.

THEY KNOW-- WE ALL KNOW.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

FOLKS, PUFF THE MAGIC GOVERNOR

IS THREATENING THEIR RAISES

BECAUSE HE WANTS TO CHANGE A

QUIRK IN THE STATE'S MARIJUANA

LAWS WHERE IF YOU POSSESS POT

IT'S ONLY A TICKET.

BUT IF IT'S IN PUBLIC VIEW, SAY

AFTER YOU'VE BEEN STOPPED AND

FRISKED BY POLICE, THEN IT'S A

CRIME.

>> HE SAYS THE AIM IS TO AVOID

UNNECESSARY CHARGES AGAINST

THOUSANDS OF NEW YORKERS WHO HE

SAYS ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY

BLACK AND HISPANIC YOUTH.

>> STEPHEN: OH, I SEE WHAT'S

HAPPENING HERE.

WHAT IF WE LIKE -- (bleep).

NO, NO, NO, NO!

WHAT IF, LIKE, WE LIVED IN A

WORLD WHERE OUR POLICE RESOURCES

WERE ALLOCATED MORE EFFECTIVELY,

AND DIDN'T REFLECT THE ENDEMIC

RACISM OF THE SYSTEM, MAN?

GROW UP, BURNOUT!

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

CLEARLY, THIS WHOLE

"DISPROPORTIONATE TARGETING OF

MINORITIES" BOONDOGGLE IS JUST A

FIG LEAF SO CUOMO CAN EXERCISE

HIS DOOBERNATORIAL POWERS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THERE'S A PERFECTLY GOOD

EXPLANATION FOR WHY NEW YORK

POLICE OFFICERS ARE STOPPING AND

FRISKING SO MANY YOUNG

MINORITIES IN POOR

NEIGHBORHOODS: BECAUSE ALL THE

WHITE KIDS IN WEALTHIER

NEIGHBORHOODS AREN'T CARRYING

WEED.

THEY'VE MOVED ON TO COKE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SO MAYBE INSTEAD OF TURNING THIS

STATE INTO GOVERNOR MAGORIUM'S

GANJA EMPORIUM, CUOMO COULD

REALLY HELP THESE KIDS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

HE COULD TELL THEM TO PUT DOWN

THE POT, AND FOCUS ON THEIR

LIVES: THEIR CRUMBLING SCHOOLS,

AND THEIR COMMUNITY'S HOSTILE

TREATMENT BY THE POLICE.

AND IF THAT UPSETS THEM AND THEY

NEED TO RELAX, THEY CAN GET A

PRESCRIPTION FOR XANAX.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BECAUSE REMEMBER: DRUGS ARE NOT

THE ANSWER, KIDS-- EXCEPT WHEN

THEY ARE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> STEPHEN: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MY GUEST TONIGHT IS A PROFESSOR

OF MATERIALS CHEMISTRY FROM THE

DEPARTMENT OF MATERIALS SCIENCE

AND ENGINEERING AT MIT.

I'LL ASK HIM WHAT THE HELL I

ZPSH I WILL ASK HIM WHAT THAT

MEANS.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

PLEASE WELCOME, DONALD SADOWAY!

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WHAT IS THAT -- MATERIAL

CHEMISTRY AND MATERIALS SCIENCE,

WHAT DO YOU DEAL WITH?

LIKE ODD STRANGE MATERIAL?

>> NO, IT'S THE SCIENCE OF

INVENTING NEW MATERIALS,

MATERIALS THAT INVOLVE NEW MIXES

OF ATOMS AND WAYS THAT GIVE US

PROPERTIES WE HAVEN'T HAD

BEFORE.

>> STEPHEN: CAN YOU TELL ME

HOW TO GET STIC'EM OFF A GLASS

THAT I BUY AT CRATE AND BARREL?

BECAUSE THAT STUFF WILL SURVIVE

REENTRY.

>> THAT'S A GOOD EXAMPLE OF

MODERN MATERIAL SCIENCE AT WORK.

>> STEPHEN: DO ALL MODERN

MATERIALS PISS ME OFF AS MUCH AS

THAT?

>> NOT INTENDED TO.

YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE STORE AND

GET THE GOO-OFF STOONCHTS SURE.

GETTING YOU ON THE BACK END.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SIR, YOU'VE GOT A DREAM.

TELL THE PEOPLE ABOUT YOUR DREAM

FOR A MORE PEACEFUL AND

PROSPEROUS WORLD, WHAT IT ALL

RESTS ON.

>> IT THINK A PEACEFUL AND

PROSPEROUS WORLD RESTS ON THE

INVENTION OF MODERN COST

AFFORDABLE BATTERIES THAT CAN

RESTORE THE GRID, ENABLE US TO

USE PHOTO WIND TO DRAW

ELECTRICITY FROM THE SUN WHEN

THE SUN DOESN'T SHINE AND ALLOW

US TO DRIVE CARS HUNDREDS OF

MILES ON A SINGLE CAR AND REDUCE

THE DEPENDENCE ON PETROLEUM.

>> STEPHEN: YOU CREATED THIS

LIQUID MET CALL BATTERY?

>> THAT'S CORRECT.

>> STEPHEN: THIS SAY PRETO

TYPE.

WHAT IS HAPPEN SOMETHING IN WHAT

IS THIS?

IT LOOKS LIKE A VERY

UNAPPETIZING GRILLED CHEESE

SANDWICH.

LA OF LAUGH.

>> IT'S INEDIBLE.

>> STEPHEN: REALLY.

IT'S INEDIBLE?

>> YES.

>> STEPHEN: SO I CAN'T EAT

THIS?

>> CORRECT.

>> Stephen: IS IT POISONOUS.

>> IT'S INEDIBLE.

>> STEPHEN: YOU WON'T GOOD SO

FAR AS TO POISONOUS.

>> THE METAL ON THE TOP IS

MAGNESIUM AND THE BODY NEEDS

MAGNESIUM BUT THE METAL ON THE

BOTTOM IS ANDIMOD.

WE SHOULDN'T INGEST THAT.

>> STEPHEN: WHY DO WE NEED

BATTERY SNRCHLZ THE BATTERIES OF

TODAY ARE FAR TOO EXPENSIVE OR

LAST LONG ENOUGH.

YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR

LAPTOP COMPUTER AND YOUR CELL

PHONE.

>> STEPHEN: I TAKE THOSE ABOUT

THEORIES OUT AND I BURN THEM.

[ LAUGHTER ]

YOU ARE A BRAVE MAN TO BE HERE

BECAUSE CERTAINLY SOMEONE AT

EXXON MOBILE HAVE MUST HAVE A

HIT OUT FOR YOU.

IS THIS GOING TO REPLACE WHAT

WE'RE USING NOW?

>> YES.

>> STEPHEN: IS THAT A PIPE

DREAM?

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

HOW DID YOU GET GUYS STARTED IS

THIS SOLYNDRA MONEY?

IS THIS OBAMA STIMULUS MONEY

THAT BUILT THE BATTERY?

>> THERE WAS STIMULUS MONEY.

>> STEPHEN: YOU JUST ADMITTED

IT'S STIMULUS MONEY AND THAT ALL

WENT TO SOLYNDRA.

PICK WINNERS AND LOSERS.

THERE'S A DIVISION OF DEPARTMENT

OF ENERGY.

>> STEPHEN: YOU ARE LAUGHING

BECAUSE I BUSTED YOU.

YOU ARE TOTALLY NAILED RIGHT

NOW.

>> NO, THERE'S A DIVISION OF THE

DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY THAT FUNDS

BASIC RESEARCH, WHICH I THINK IS

THE LEGITIMATE ROLE OF

GOVERNMENT STOONCHTS SPEAKING OF

BASIC RESEARCH CAN'T I MAKE THIS

THING BY PUTTING TWO NAILS IN A

LEMON.

STHNT A BATTERY?

>> IT'S A BATTERY IF THE NAILS

ARE OF DIFFERENT COMPOSITION.

IF YOU TAKE TWO SIMILAR NAILS

YOU WON'T GET ANY VOLTAGE, NO.

>> STEPHEN: SO YOU BUILT A

BETTER LEMON?

>> NO A BETTER BATTERY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> STEPHEN: WHAT HAPPENS IF I

TAKE A SLICE OF THIS AND PUT IT

IN MY COCKTAIL?

>> AH --

>> STEPHEN: YOU DON'T GET

QUESTIONS LIKE THIS AT MIT, DO

YOU?

>> NO, NO.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THIS IS A DIFFERENT LINE OF

INTERROGATION.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> STEPHEN: YOU SAY LIKE NEW

BATTERIES CAN LEAD TO WORLD

PEACE.

>> YES.

>> STEPHEN: HOW DOES A NEW

BATTERY LEAD TO WORLD PEACE?

>> ENOUGH BATTERIES EVERYWHERE

TO BRICK RENEWABLE SOURCES OF

EMERGENCY TO THE GRID AND USE

THAT TO POWER ELECTRICITY

VEHICLES, YOU GOWRING TO TOPPLE

DICTATORS, MAKE THINGS VERY,

VERY DIFFERENT WHEN THE PRICE OF

OIL GOES BACK TO $20 A BARREL.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> STEPHEN: WELL, SIR --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

SOME ARE OF US HEAVILY INVESTED

IN OIL COMPANIES.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> I'M NOT SAYING WE'RE NOT

GOING TO USE OIL I'M GOING TO

MAKE IT NO LONGER A STRATEGIC

COMMODITY.

WE WANT A BALANCE, A RICH MIX OF

OIL, GAS, NUCLEAR RENEWABLE.

IT'S NOT ONE SIZE FITS ALL.

WE DON'T WANT TO BE FULLY

DEPENDENT ON ONE SOURCE.

>> Stephen: YOU ARE USING

STUDENTS AT MIRKS, T AS YOUR

WORK FORCE RIGHT NOW.

>> YES?

YOU DON'T PAY THEM, DO YOU?

>> YES, THEY GET A STIPULATE

YEND THEY GET THEIR TUITION PAID

FOR.

>> STEPHEN: REALLY?

JUST TREAT THEM LIKE INTERNS.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

IF THIS THING TAKES OFF ARE YOU

A GAJILLIONAIRE?

>> MAYBE.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
