Would Glenn Rather Fight a Hundred Duck-Sized Horses or One Horse-Sized Duck?

For a bit of levity during the first 11-hour questioning of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, several Republican senators inquired about some lighthearted topics. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), whose family texted him with potential questions throughout the process, settled on a question from his teenage son: Would Judge Gorsuch rather fight a hundred duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck? Naturally, this led to a philosophical conversation on The Glenn Beck Program.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm going for the 100 duck-sized horses.

PAT: Yeah, but one shotgun blast through the horse-sized ducks head, and it's over. Right?

STU: If we have heavy arms, yes. This is a different discussion.

PAT: It's pretty easy. It's pretty easy.

GLENN: No. But you could take the duck-sized horses. What are they going to do? They can't trample you.

Judge Gorsuch, on the other hand, jokingly pleaded the Fifth.

GLENN: One other thing that happened yesterday that I thought was great -- and can I ask you, is there a certain senator from Nebraska that might be angling for a 2020 or 2024 run?

STU: I hope so.

PAT: Yeah, he's -- I mean...

GLENN: I mean, he's just -- he has just played every card exactly right in the -- in the last two years, three years, since he's gotten there.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And he had the bright spot yesterday. Listen.

SASSE: My wife also sent me a text a little bit ago and said -- and I'm sure she didn't expect me to read it. But how in the world is Gorsuch able to go so many hours at a time without peeing?

(laughter)

SASSE: I won't make you answer, but the SCOTUS bladder is something the whole country stands in awe of. So you're over halfway through your 11 hours today.

GLENN: The SCOTUS bladder.

PAT: Very good.

GLENN: Ben Sasse from Nebraska.

STU: Yeah, there's actually a couple of funny moments throughout this. What was the Reddit thing? Did you see that too? Do you have it, Pat?

PAT: Yeah, it's this.

FLAKE: My family has been texting me throughout this process, asking me to ask questions that they would ask. I ask a few of them for suggestions, and my son Dallin, a teenager, said, ask him if he would rather fight a hundred duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?

(laughter)

FLAKE: I never heard it either. Apparently it's a question on Reddit a while ago. Anyway, that's where it's going from here, I think.

FLAKE: You can tell me I'm very rarely at a loss for words, but you got me.

FLAKE: I will tell him, a teenager stumped him there.

STU: You're going to go with duck-sized horses. Because you can kind of kick them --

GLENN: Hang on. I was going to go with, this is really the problem. Isn't it? That -- I mean, they have nothing really to talk about, and so they're talking about this. They're wasting everyone's time.

JEFFY: And theirs.

STU: Blah, blah. But, I mean, I would go -- I think duck-sized horses. A hundred is a lot, but a horse-sized duck -- you're in serious trouble, just one-on-one.

JEFFY: You're in big trouble. Yeah, you're in trouble.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm going for the 100 duck-sized horses.

PAT: Yeah, but one shotgun blast through the horse-sized ducks head, and it's over. Right?

STU: If we have heavy arms, yes, this is a different discussion.

PAT: It's pretty easy. It's pretty easy.

GLENN: No. But you could take the duck-sized horses. What are they going to do? They can't trample you.

STU: And horses like don't have -- where a duck -- I mean, it can peck at you. If it's the size of a horse --

GLENN: Ducks are nasty.

PAT: But there's a hundred of them. That's a lot. That's a lot.

STU: Right. But what are they going to do?

GLENN: Am I in space? Do I have open space to run, or am I in a room?

PAT: We don't know that variable.

GLENN: We don't. So I can't answer that question.

STU: But you've been in a situation before, where you're walking by a pond, and there's a flock of let's say ducks.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And you look over there -- but you don't -- you're not intimidated by them. If you get into close quarters with just a horse, that could be very intimidating if the horse is aggressive.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: So here, I mean, if you put a giant bill on that horse, and that could peck you at any moment --

JEFFY: Yeah.

STU: -- you're really going down a dangerous road there.

GLENN: Again, I believe we solved this earlier in the week and we can stop talking about this. If you have 100 horses, you have 50 pair of horse roller skates. You tie those horses to your feet.

STU: Yeah. Okay.

GLENN: And they take you wherever you want to go. And with a hundred, it's like a borax team. I mean, you can move Jeffy. I'm just saying.

PAT: Oh. It would be --

STU: That would be ridiculous. Now you took a real conversation -- a Supreme Court conversation and made it ridiculous.

GLENN: Yeah.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
