Can you guess what this PSA is for?: "There are many dumb ways to die"

Glenn came across a very catchy Australian PSA this week that has gone viral all over the internet. The only thing is…until the ad gets to the very end, you have no idea what in the world the message is for.

Here are the lyrics:

"Set fire to your hair.  Poke a stick at a grizzly bear.  Eat medicine that's out of date.  Use your private parts as piranha bait. 

Dumb ways to die.  So many dumb ways to die. Dumb ways to die. So many dumb ways to die.

Get your toast with a fork.  Do your own electrical work.  Teach yourself how to fly.  Eat a two‑week‑old unrefrigerated pie."

"Any takers yet?" Glenn asked Pat and Stu.

They had a couple of guesses: a funeral home, seat belts, but none of them correct. And the ad continues.

"So many dumb ways to die.  Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die.

A psycho killer in sight.  Scratch a drug dealer's brand new ride. Use your clothes dryer at a hiding place. 

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die.  Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die. 

Keep your rattlesnake as a pet.  Sell both your kidneys on the Internet.  Eat super glue.  I wonder, what's this red button do?

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die.  Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die. 

So many dumb ways to die.  Dress up like a moose during hunting season.  Stir a nest of wasps for no good reason.  Stand on the edge of a train station platform at a level crossing.  Run across the tracks.

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die.  Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die."

"Here it comes…" Glenn interjected.

"Be safe around trains.  A message from Metro."

Glenn explained that the video has gone so viral that it was number two or three on YouTube the other day and it's even for sale on iTunes.

So the question Glenn, Pat and Stu have is: How many people have to die to get a three minute PSA ad in Australia?

Thinking that in 2012, surely trains are a serious threat to the human, Stu went searching for the stats. What he found was actually surprising.

Australia's numbers were actually smaller than most that he found, at only 50 people a year. So it's safe to say a three-minutes PSA is just a little over the top.

In the USA, Stu found a shocking 400-600 people being killed per year.

However that's nothing to the number he found in India. Australia may actually want to let India borrow this little jingle, because they have an alarming 15,000 people per year killed by trains, where there is over 40,000 miles of railway track. 6,000 of those are in Mumbai alone — that's about 16 per day.

Glenn had a few solutions, like a switching station. His best option was this: stop letting people think trains are the world's solution to the environment and use trucks, cars and bridges.

"We've got to worry about that. There's certainly no other problems on this Earth to take care of first. Let's worry about the 0.7 degree temperature rise when 15,000 people a year are dying by trains in one country," Stu sarcastically said.

If you go back and listen to the jingle one more time, it's actually hard to believe that more people die from trains than some of the things listed in this song.

As Glenn and Pat jokingly pointed out, he's gotten his toast out using a fork before and tried to do his own electrical work. Although, he definitely hasn't done quite a few things on this list.

Long story short: Have a lovely Thanksgiving AND be safe around trains.

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
