GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. Glad you're here. So I had dinner last night and I had this big business meeting. I went to dinner, and I go to this place. I've never been there before. Really good restaurant, and I walk in and I'm like, oh, jeez, this is one of those snotty places. I hate those places, you know, where everybody where you've got like 400 waiters and then you're like, I don't know. Because you're like, I don't know what the tip can I just leave you a 5? What do I so anyway, we go to this place and George Soros sits right behind me.
GLENN: Yeah. The waiter comes up and luckily I really thought, when I walked in I thought, oh, it's one of those snotty places. Because it wasn't somebody was taking me to dinner. And so I go to this place and my wife is waiting for me and I'm like, honey, I've got to go to this dinner. So I'm just like, okay, let's go to dinner. And I get there and I walk in and, you know, they made me take off my Converse sneakers before I went and I'm like, why? I always wear Converse. And they're like, Glenn, you don't understand this restaurant. I'm like, oh, no! And I walk in, but the waiters are really, really cool. You know, the waiters are just like, hey, let me tell you something. Let me tell you what's going on. And then when they get to the table, they're like, so we have some nice fish for you? So anyway, the waiters come up, and when I'm in the appetizer, one of them leans down and he says, so how is everything with the appetizer, Mr. Beck? Do you like it? George Soros is hitting right behind you. Is everything a ll right? And I said, you've got to be kidding me. And he said, no. So I did, you know, he walks away and I'm like doing the yawn thing. I'm like, oh, my gosh: It's George Soros.
STU: You're telling me that you had dinner on Earth Day.
GLENN: On Earth Day.
STU: With George Soros.
GLENN: With George Soros well, not really with George Soros, but let's just say a couple of things. First of all, if you're invested in things that he's invested in and he's got anything to do with running things, you might want to reconsider that. He doesn't look well. It's like he had just like a touch of the Ebola virus. You know, when I looked at him, I turn around and I look at him and I'm like, oh, my gosh. You know, I wanted the waiter to go up, "Could I get you another cocktail or maybe a trip to the hospital?" I mean, he really
STU: Well, there's a lot of pressure in running the entire world.
GLENN: I know. He's got to tell the president what to do and everything else. So it's really but he didn't look a touch of the Ebola, his eyes were all red, I mean like blood shooting out of them red. I really thought it was like a I don't know. It was like, you know, a statue of the Madonna where she's, you know, crying blood and stuff in those horror movies. That's what it was like.
STU: Is it possible he got Earth day confused with 4/20?
GLENN: May have. It was really red, Stu. I really think he may have had to dab his eyes just a little bit from the blood. Have you ever seen that James Bond movie from the guy who was playing poker?

EPA’s Cleanup and Disposal Guidelines for Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs
GLENN: Yeah, it was kind of like that. It was like, okay, he's bleeding from his eyes; that's spooky. And he's George Soros. Double spookout!
STU: Now, did he order meat? Because as we know, it's bad for the environment.
GLENN: I didn't ask.
STU: It's worse than transportation.
GLENN: I didn't ask.
STU: For the globe.
GLENN: I didn't ask.
STU: I'd like to know that.
GLENN: Yeah, I didn't ask. I wasn't facing him. I should have asked. I should have asked. I wasn't facing him. So I don't know because I was just catching glimpses. Didn't look good. But what the nice thing was, as soon as I found that out, my table started talking about global warming. Wow, this global warming thing sure is a scam, huh? Whoa. I mean, think about all the money that's being poured into global warming campaigns, and the poll numbers on it just keep going down.
GLENN: I'm just glad I don't have any money in that because, boy, that's a scam. Yeah, I was just trying to see I'd look at the waiter.
STU: If you do nothing else in your career but ruin one George Soros dinner, I think I
GLENN: May I say I can die a happy man today. I can die a happy man today. You know what matters, well, media doesn't matter. Media doesn't matter. Oh, wow. Move on!
So anyway, then I get home and my wife says, you got an e mail from somebody. They want you to see something. And it's, I think it was from Media Matters. Did you see this, Stu? It was an alert that Media Matters put out that I had threatened somebody's life to kill them on the show last night?
GLENN: Yeah. You didn't see this?
GLENN: Oh, you have to see this. Did you see the show last night? I know you were getting ready. You were part of the show last night.
GLENN: Yeah. I had the fluorescent light bulb.
STU: No, I didn't hear. I was listening, but what happened?
GLENN: Well, I took Oscar, who's one of the cameramen.
GLENN: And I took Oscar. I said, come here, Oscar, right at the top of the show. He wouldn't leave his camera and I'm like, come here. So he left the camera and he came over to me, I grabbed him around the neck and I took the light bulb and I said, I mean it, man, I'll kill him right now! I mean it! I got a light bulb and I'll kill him right now! They put an alert out like I'm serious. These guys are so
STU: What a humorless group.
GLENN: Just, I mean and so I wish I would have known that while Soros was sitting behind me so I could say look what your people are doing. They're destroying their own credibility, of which they have none. They're destroying their do you know how much money you're wasting with these clowns?
STU: Well, yeah. You're just destroying credibility for these people. It's like what you were talking about with negative interest rates. You really can't go below zero, can you?
GLENN: I think they're trying. I do think they're trying.
STU: Well, I mean, I was put in an unhealthy work environment last night because you forced me to break
GLENN: Stu, I am not kidding you. They actually gave me a warning prior to. I mean, how big is our studio?
STU: Very it's a large studio.
GLENN: 2,000, 3,000 square feet?
STU: Probably, yeah.
GLENN: So it's a very large studio, but we're in you know, because of this studio, we're in the inside of the building. There are no windows or anything else. There's only two exits and there's no windows. And so we're in this gigantic space. There's probably eight of us on the floor at all times, and the director came to me, in all seriousness came to me prior to.
Now, remember this is Fox. So you can imagine what, like, crazy networks would, what kind of they would never let you walk out on a stage with a fluorescent light bulb.
GLENN: They came to me and they said, "Listen. There is a mask for you on the stage in case this does break. Please don't break this, but there is a mask on stage for you because if you drop it, you'd be the closest. Please put your mask on right away." And I went, "Yeah, right, I'm going to do that." And he just looked at me like, I ain't joking. And I said, it's a light bulb. And he said, listen, I've already instructed the crew, if you drop this, you're to put your mask on, they're to open up wide, leave the cameras on and leave the floor.
STU: That's unbelievable.
GLENN: Unbelievable, unbelievable.
STU: As you were talking and doing monologues, I was getting in my ear, look, are we sure we're okay with dropping this thing? I want to make sure that we done have any incidents here. I want to make sure everyone around you is safe. I'm like, what do you think I'm going to do? Throw it at a passerby?
GLENN: Did you see the people? They were outside and the people had to wear a mask.
STU: Yeah. You know, the crew and stuff was all lining up. Like they were, like, actually looking I swear this is true looking at the flags and making sure they didn't stand downwind.
GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Fox was not screwing around.
STU: They were not kidding. And I told them, I'm like, if you've ever seen 40 Year Old Virgin, in that movie they are all just sitting out behind, you know, the Circuit City type store and they've got those long tubular fluorescent lights and they are just bashing them over each other as a joke. I mean, you know, I know it's bad and everything else but to me, I don't think I actually took a legitimate risk but then I come in this morning and Joe is telling me about some special filter they had on the camera. Did you see this? This special
GLENN: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, it's unbelievable. I saw this. Oscar showed it to me.
STU: This is not
GLENN: When they blew when you took the light bulb and you smashed it, we're talking about again good for the environment fluorescent light bulbs, the ones that now by 2012 you, unless you've done what I've done I'm not burying gold. I'm not burying food. I'm stocking up on incandescent light bulbs. You're going to have to have these fluorescent light bulbs because they're better for the environment. That's what we're talking about, fluorescent light bulbs. When they broke it and we went into break, Oscar, the cameraman, he said to me, he said, "Glenn, come here for a second." And Joe, our researcher and attorney, was standing there with him. And he said, Glenn, you won't believe this. They had some special filter on the lens or something that could show all of and for some reason or another you could only see it in this weird blue screen or reverse. I don't remember what it was. So we couldn't show it on television. But it was some sort of a filter that could show all of the pieces, everything that had shattered, everything that had come out of that light bulb. You could see it on the screen. And Stu, you were covered in it, cove red in it. It was like, the ground, if anybody saw the show last night, you saw just a few pieces and you spent all the time cleaning it up. It looked like it was a pile of snow. You couldn't see the ground in that area around the light bulb. It was amazing, amazing.
STU: Really creepy green CSI.
GLENN: Yeah, yeah. It was incredible.
STU: As we were doing some of the notes for that segment, I pulled out a couple of things we didn't get to on the air, that Maine has an acceptable mercury standard of 300 nanograms per cubic meter, okay? 300. In their tests they hit levels of 25,000, sometimes over this is a quote sometimes over 50,000 and possibly over 100,000 from the breakage of a single CFL. That's more than 300 times the acceptable standards. And they go on to say that the procedures, when they did all these cleaning procedures that I did last night, eight of them you saw how ridiculous. It seems so futile. Like they wouldn't even I had to use tape to pick up pieces of glass.
GLENN: If you saw the filter on the camera, you wouldn't pick it up with your hands, either.
GLENN: I mean, if you did you know, everybody just vacuums them up, just vacuums it up? That stuff is in you better throw your dust buster away.
STU: And they said literally if you get it on your clothes, don't wash them in the sink, don't put them in the washing machine. Throw them out. Literally says throw them out.
GLENN: If you saw you know what
STU: I've got to see these somehow.
GLENN: I have to break another one. I've got to take a picture of that picture. It was almost like an oscilloscope. You know what an oscilloscope is? It was almost like that. I mean, it was black and white. It was I don't know how to describe it, but it was incredible.
STU: This is and they said the State of Maine did a lot of studies on this and they said if you follow all the procedures that I did, all eight steps, it will produce visibly this is a quote visibly clean flooring surfaces for both wood and carpets but all types of flooring surfaces tested can retain mercury surfaces when visibly clean at levels more than 150 times acceptable. This has, quote, particular significance for children rolling around on the floor, babies crawling or nonmobile infants placed on the floor. So pick it up with tape; don't roll your baby infant around to pick up the pieces of glass. I guess that's but I mean, that's significant.
STU: You are talking 150 to 300 times acceptable levels from one bulb?
GLENN: You know, can I tell you something? Years ago I broke a thermometer.
GLENN: Yeah, broke a thermometer.
STU: Because that's even more serious, I guess.
GLENN: That's actual mercury.
STU: Mercury all over the floor.
GLENN: Yeah, but it all pools up. It's pretty cool to play with. Anyway, so cleaned it up and, you know, know it went into the wood floor because you had a little spot of you know, it just kind of discolored the floor. Oh, well.
STU: What are you going to do.
GLENN: Oh, well. If you told the state that that happened, oh, my gosh, you'd have to, you know, get rid of that floor, everything else. There's no way you could if I would have done that in a public place, there's no way. They would have quarantined that room, they would have taken up the floor. There's no way you could have done it. You know what? We all survive; let it go.
STU: Well, you think that now.
GLENN: I might I've either got mercury poisoning or I've got what George Soros had. Whew, he didn't look good.
So anyway, the great thing is if you look at the light bulb segment that we did, Stu had to go and drive to a recycling center to get rid of the light bulb and all of the stuff that he used to clean it up. He had to put it in a glass jar. Now, how good is a glass jar for recycling? What are they going to do? They're going to go in a landfill. They're going to crush it.
STU: Yeah, and one of the big things in reading this report was the way you dispose of it at the end, it's still, no matter what you do, it still lets off some mercury.
GLENN: And did you see that on the bulb, I checked, it had a caution I love the caution that it had on the bulb that you broke? Did you read those cautions?
GLENN: On the caution it says do not oh, I wish I had the exact phrase. Caution: Do not install something like where there is a direct line of water or something where it can be oh, so I shouldn't put this in my shower drain? Are we this stupid?
And then the other thing was it said underneath, made in China. These are made in China. Regular light bulbs are made here in Kentucky. Incandescent light bulbs are made here in the United States. So you're telling me that buying these things in China, putting them on a giant freighter ship, dodging pirates, you know those. They're feeding those slave children in China mercury: Here, have some more mercury in your soup, kids. You know that's going on. There's no standards over there. They put them on a train, they ship them to the sea yards, they then put them onto a cargo ship, ship it around the world to us and this is better? As I said last night, what is global warming? That's a total scam, isn't it? Is he bleeding from his eyes yet?
