Glenn and Stu recap several stories that seem too INSANE to be true, starting with the tragic situation regarding the OceanGate submarine which went missing during a trip two miles down to the Titanic wreckage. The idea was ‘nuts from day one,’ the guys say, especially considering the weak mechanical parts the submarine used to function. Plus, Glenn details an interesting new Toronto restaurant, and for some reason, he’s not THAT surprised about potential aliens landing in one Las Vegas backyard…
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Well, CNN has their new -- what was that plane that crashed?
GLENN: The missing plane.
GLENN: MH280. Something like that.
STU: It sounds right.
GLENN: And it is now the Titanic sub. They ran out of air today. And so we believe, unless they are above water some place and haven't found them.
STU: I don't even think that matters, honestly. Because I was watching a video on how this was built. They screw them in from the outside. So they could be floating the whole time. And I don't think there's any way they're getting out of there. I could be wrong on that. Maybe there's a hatchet or some way they could escape in an emergency. I don't know.
GLENN: Can you imagine? Did you see the inside of that?
STU: Oh, my gosh. It looks terrifying. Even if it was working, I wouldn't want to go inside of it.
GLENN: I know.
STU: It's this little tiny tube. You can't stand up. It's basically, you're scrunched up in this little tiny cylinder, that's 2 miles down on the ocean. It was nuts from day one.
GLENN: No way. Yeah.
STU: And did you see the clip they had from 60 Minutes? Where they are like, yeah. We bought this part at Camping World. Camping World!
GLENN: That's nothing against Camping World.
STU: It's a great organization I'm sure.
GLENN: But 2 miles under the ocean. Probably should -- I would feel better --
STU: We have the clip. Oh, we should play this. Because have you seen how they control it?
STU: Oh, you got to watch this.
VOICE: It's an experimental, submersible vessel, that has not been approved or certified by any regulatory body. And could result in physical injury, disability, emotional trauma, or death. Where do I sign?
VOICE: Oh, take your shoes off. That's customary. Okay.
VOICE: Inside, the sub has about as much room as a minivan.
VOICE: So this is not your grandfather's submersible?
VOICE: We only have one button. That's it.
VOICE: It should be like an elevator. It shouldn't take a lot of skill.
VOICE: The Titan is the only 5-person sub in the world that can reach Titanic depths. 2.4 miles below the sea. It's also the only one with a toilet. Sort of. And yet, I couldn't help noticing how many pieces of this sub, seemed improved.
VOICE: We can use these off the shelf components.
VOICE: I got these from Camper World. We run the whole thing with this game controller.
STU: Come on! Now we run it with a game controller, and it's not even the name brand. It's like a knock-off game controller. It is not even like the real PlayStation controller.
GLENN: Could we at least get one by Sony? Even if it's a Sony with two Y's or two N's. That would be Sunny, but it will be closer.
STU: Really, it was nuts to go down there in the first place. And they -- this CBS 60 Minutes report, they try it a bunch of times. They can't get it to work a bunch of times. They eventually do go down and come back up. It did happen. They were talking several of these times, they would lose contact underneath the water. They would be underneath for three hours. They would lose contact for two and a half of them.
GLENN: It looks dangerous enough. I don't need that stress.
STU: Yeah, and to see a boat.
GLENN: There's a lot of them up above.
STU: Lots of boats. Go anywhere near water, you're going to see them. And look, I understand.
GLENN: If you're signing that. If you're signing that kind of release, that he read at the beginning.
You know, they all knew. That doesn't lessen the pain. I can't imagine what horror they went through.
STU: I don't even want to think about that.
GLENN: I don't want to think about that.
STU: You saw the inside and how they were sitting. You can't even stretch your legs. You're in this little tiny cylinder. Just being down there for hours and hours on end, would be really tough to deal with, then knowing all this is happening. It's a terrible story. Of course, CNN is exploiting it for every single advertiser dollar. You know, they're doing everything they can here to talk about it constantly.
GLENN: It's crazy.
STU: It's really dark.
GLENN: Hey, there's a couple of things I want to discuss. One is, you know, I've said, we just need to look at things and say, hmm. I'm excited to see how that works out.
You know, if I would have seen that clip before they went down, I probably would have said, hmm.
That's going to be exciting to see how that works out with that game controller. Here's one. Toronto, the Casey house is a specialty restaurant now with swanky multi-course dinners, and specialty cocktails. And all of the food, everything is prepared by people living with HIV.
Now, I mean, unless they're bleeding on the food, which I don't think is happening.
GLENN: But I don't know. It doesn't seem like something, you know, that you -- would be a big selling point. You know what I mean?
Hey, your chef has HIV. Okay. I'm cool with that. He hasn't chopped a finger, has he?
You, but that's your -- that's your -- I mean, that's like, hey. Everybody in the kitchen has HIV. No.
I -- keep that to yourself.
STU: Right. Really any disease. You don't have to tell me about the diseases of anybody preparing my food. Please don't. Please don't.
GLENN: Yeah. Oh, man. Everybody has the plague, but they're all in space suits in the kitchen.
Okay. Can you get somebody else?
STU: This seems like a concept that's unlikely to be franchised.
GLENN: Well, I'm looking forward to seeing how that works out. Because maybe it does.
STU: There you go.
GLENN: Let me take you one thing.
Last night, and you can watch it on YouTube.com at Glenn Beck. I think you have to have at Glenn Beck.
STU: YouTube.com/GlennBeck. Let's put it that way.
STU: You weren't listening apparently to our long conversation about this, but if you do YouTube.com/GlennBeck, you should get there.
GLENN: I thought was listening to that. Anyway...
STU: That's what you always think. You always think you're listening, you just are not.
GLENN: What were you saying? Anyway, so go to YouTube. Watch last night's special. Our Wednesday night's special, it was very different for us. Stu and I were both on vacation.
And there's a lot of news, that, you know, we've been talking about all week. But I didn't know some of the other things that were happening. Because two weeks, no news. No news at all for me.
And wow, wow, just in two weeks. There were some things.
So we played, you know, two truths. One lie.
GLENN: And I think I did pretty well.
STU: You did incredibly well. I will say, they gave me the list of things to read you to. The first one was not highlighted on which one was fake. And I didn't know half of them.
GLENN: It's weird. I know the writers. Our writers well enough to know.
And I also -- I was only surprised by the press. That was the only thing. They asked hard questions, apparently.
A couple of times. And I couldn't believe that.
STU: That couldn't be true. That would be the press doing their job. That was really your analysis on it.
GLENN: Right. There was one we didn't get to.
STU: Yeah. This was two truths and a lie over the past couple of weeks. The US has 12 or more alien spacecraft.
US officials suggest Extraterrestrial medicine may unlock the future of cancer treatment. And crashed Las Vegas UFO witness terrified by 8-foot creatures in his backyard. Quote, 100 percent not human.
Which one is fake of those three?
GLENN: I hope that one is fake. Because that's the least interesting of the other two.
I could see -- I mean, I just read some place, about how AI is going to attract aliens. And they'll be able to communicate with us now. Because they're so smart. And AI will be communicating. And so we will get a lot of our medicine. So that could be possible.
The one, I will go with one that I hope is not true. And that is the 8-foot alien, but I bet you it is.
STU: Crashed Las Vegas UFO witness was actually in reality, terrified by 8-foot creatures in his backyard, claiming they were 100 percent not human. That is a real story.
GLENN: And what were they? Do you know?
STU: I don't know. I don't know what they were.
GLENN: Well, no need. Hey, producers, no need. When we're talking about 8-foot aliens. Well, I don't need any more information on that.
STU: No more information. The US does, in fact, have 12 or more alien spacecraft, say military and intelligence contractors.
Now, I don't -- again, we haven't seen these, but this is what the officials are saying. Kind of crazy.
GLENN: Okay. You know what is crazy? You know, as big as Hunter Biden getting off, these are huge epic, never before happened, stories in America.
Donald Trump being indicted. Okay? Huge. The government coming out and saying it has 12 alien spaceships, I don't know. I think that ranks high enough to be something that you might hear talk of. You know what I mean?
STU: You think. But no. Didn't even infiltrate your vacation.
GLENN: What is it about the alien thing that you just don't care about?
STU: It does seem like they're preparing us for something. Doesn't it?
GLENN: It does, doesn't it?
STU: It does. By the way, seven of our last 11 presidents were alien.
GLENN: I would be relieved. I would be so relieved.
STU: Oh. We already kind of dealt with it then. Maybe we're okay.
GLENN: And I would be like, that makes sense. Thank you.
STU: No wonder they acted that way.
GLENN: Yes. That makes sense. They are aliens. Great, you can eat me now. I'm fine.
At least I can be eaten.
Not screaming -- like, what the hell is going on?
I will know. It's an alien. And I'm food to him.
STU: And unfortunately, the one thing that you would be excited about, that some extraterrestrial medicine that was curing cancer. That's the one that is not real.
So we got the aliens here. They're 8-foot. They're in your backyard. But they're not doing anything positive for us.
