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  Eat medicine that's out of date.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.

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
