You'd think MIT students would know better, but I guess they're just letting anyone in these days. Or maybe they're just not studying Newtonian physics anymore. Either way, it's pretty embarrassing when you try to pull a boat out of the water with a pickup truck and then have to get the truck towed out of the water.

Massachusetts State Police posted these photos on their Facebook page with what happened Sunday night in Somerville, Mass.:

The MSP Dive Team was called out to the Mystic River tonight to assist with getting a Ford Ranger out of the Mystic River. MIT students had been testing out a remote controlled boat, weighing over 1,000 lbs. Apparently this Ford Ranger could not easily pull the boat out.

Oh well, live and learn.
