LIONEL PODCAST: The Power and Magic of Wonder and True Awe.

Hacking Zeus. Who says particle physics isn’t knee-slapping good craic? Look carefully at this. This is the password of Gawd.

The child is the perfect human unit. And there’s nothing as important as this idea. The child’s mind is the perfect model for the acceptance of knowledge. Children are fearless, funny, open-minded. They don’t know hatred or bigotry. They want to play and playing means learning. They’re not embarrassed at failure or even getting hurt. In fact, parents teach them to cry. Parents’ looks of horror reinforces the connection between fear and sadness and terror. The human being is perfect up to the age of six (6). After that, learning kicks in and it’s all downhill until death. And that’s why when they are hurt, it should be full and open warfare against those who’d dare to harm them.

Gotta love a physics joke. Better yet, you have to love physics. It’s not a subject; it’s the rules.

Dark matter matters? Scaffolding.

For the first time, a team of astronomers has “observed” a filament of dark matter connecting two neighboring galaxy clusters. Dark matter is a type of matter that interacts only very weakly with light and itself. It’s very nature is mysterious. Mapping the dark matter filament’s gravity was the key to the breakthrough. The result is considered a crucial first step by scientists. It provides the first direct evidence that the universe is filled by a lacework of dark matter filaments, upon which the visible matter in the universe is distributed like small beads. Gizmag

LIONEL PODCAST: Stop Questioning God, Country and Official History. Do As You’re Told.

We need a new word for lie. Why do you believe anything anyone on news commentary shows says? My favorite is the idea that MSDNC with everyone’s favorite neo-sage Ms. Maddow is somehow immune from bias. You’ve got to be kidding me. Just once I’d love to have her address just why and how I’m supposed to overlook the fact that she’s the rodeo clown for GE, a defense contractor and major recipient of TARP money. Immelt was in bed with Barry O but we’re not so sure now. I chortle hyena-like when she gives me that stern, knitted brown thing and actually thinks that I don’t get the fraud. She’s a nice enough person, sure, but come on, Rachel. You’re a shill for 44 and just once I wish you’d stop leaning forward and come clean. And what ever happened to that “lean forward” shite?

Control and order. Friday was the 13th. Remember, triskaidekaphobia means nothing. But every news monkey will make some reference to it now and then and especially when the news is slow and for reasons we’ll never know. But it’s no more ridiculous than any other belief in a control system that exists externally. As Deepak Chopra would say . . . oh, for Chrissakes, who the hell cares what Deep Pocket says. And if you’re in need of random, baseless cosmic consciousness blather here’s your own Random Deepak Chopra Quote Generator.

LIONEL PODCAST: Nescience. The American Way.

My, how they love to laugh. It’s the universal response to anything different scary or challenging. With the 65th anniversary of Roswell, the usual suspects laugh and chortle out of, frankly, nervousness. And absolute nescience. Look no further than 9/11 mythology. Some of the stories that have been woven and constructed are absolutely ridiculous: impossible concoctions of manufactured fact. But, alas, why bother. Myth gives people comfort. Laughing away that which ails you. That which is discomfiting, bothersome. Don’t feel bad. It’s the American way.

App-solutely scary. You’re under complete and total surveillance. At all times. Everywhere. So, wouldn’t it make sense to record the government ad cops. Well, Sparky, how naive are you. Well, the ACLU has come up with an app for smartphones. Sorry, iPhone, this is for droids only. The app allows you to chronicle and memorialize police encounters, especially stop and frisk moments of temporary custodial interrogation. Let’s hear it for freedom.

LIONEL PODCAST: Staring at the World Again

Shaw ’nuff. George noted, “A man of great common sense and good taste – meaning thereby a man without originality or moral courage.” I defy you to find a more beautiful thought. It’s tough being unique and original. Just ask the Kardashians. I kid of course. But this posed fascinating point. Being nice and accommodating and the like often involves capitulation and resignation. And that’s anathema to the creative, bright spirit.

Insanely obvious. The idea of having requisite specific intent nullified by insanity confounds many. And I can understand why.

LIONEL PODCAST: The Beginning Is Near

The parallel universe. Welcome back, spiritual carpooler. Have you adjusted yet? Have you figured out that you’re starring in the most frightening reality show of its kind. This week with Higgs Boson verified I wept figuratively. The discovery was colossal. And yet my world stares in rapt attention as Chris Christie shreds the last vestige of a career hat was based on bluster, blather and air. And we laugh at this piteous churl and he just doesn’t get it. We can’t get enough of the emotionally tentative. And yet we found one of Gawd’s passwords and not a peep.

Synchronized nescience. When the Fourth rolled around the seals barked, sheeple were herded to stare, all while we celebrated a country who’s disappearing before your very eyes. Shhhh! They’ll hear you. Don’t wake them. They’re better off not knowing. Americans love to wave flags. That’s it. To pretend they get it. To imagine and truly believe that “patriotism” is a ceremonial dance. Bowing, gesturing and pretending. Pretending to understand.

A killer walks and the system works. You heard me, Sparky. It worked. Liberty’s a bitch and due process is her pimp. And yet the most amazing news, as stated supra, was all but forgotten, dismissed and ignored. Here’s my paean to the human mind and the seduction of discovery.

LIONEL PODCAST: The 236th Fourth of July and the Myth of Liberty

Happy Birthday, us! Note the exclamation point. Yes, I’m screaming it. You do the same. Please. Fireworks bore me to the core. Crowds do nothing for me. Have you ever seen a fireworks display and thought, “Now, that was really worth fighting the traffic and seas of humanity. I’m fulfilled now. I can die a happy man.” No, no one has.

Below please find my encomium and paean to that which makes us great. See for yourself and spread the word. Feliz cumpleaños, America.

LIONEL PODCAST: Two Huge Reasons Why July 2nd Is Significant: World UFO Day & the Inaugural of Lionel’s New PIX 11 Early Morning News Show

Morning becomes Lionel. As the video message supra indicates, there’s big news at PIX 11. Today, July 2nd, begins my new venture. I host the new iteration of the PIX 11 4A-6A News with the best coterie and conclave of news colleagues in the business.

You might have heard about it. It was in all the papers. News will never be the same. This I promise you.

And one more thing. Today is World UFO Day. They’re here. Ike and Churchill new. POTUS 34 was not exactly a loon.

LIONEL PODCAST: What the Hell Is Obamacare Anyway?

Why are we clapping, Rachel? Obamacare is constitutional. Not under the commerce clause, mind you, but under Congress’s inherent power to tax which POTUS Barry swore this wasn’t. Huh? And nobody has a clue as to what the hell that even means. I mean they talk a good game. Obama hatin’ Repubi-cons swear it’s the end of civilization. Obama acolytes and MSDNC types laud his brilliance, But both sides share one thing in common: nobody has a clue as to what the hell Obamacare even means. But look, Sparky, that never stopped you before and it won’t now. In less than a week this will be forgotten. Obama haters still hate; his disciples still fawn. The only ones to watch are the undecided and swing voters.

The definitive videos that explain all you need to know to appear mildly conversant. That about covers it.

LIONEL PODCAST: “Freedom, well, that’s just some people talking.”

Duck and cover, Jethro. You are a rat in a maze. You spin about crazedly and without surcease. In your little cage. Don’t feel bad, I do it too. But I’ve a better view. And, no, I’ve no idea what that means. But there’s a certain lyricism to it.

Royal pains in the arse. I’ve hit the saturation point as to those Royals. Royals?! Oh, puh-leeze. A bunch of inbred monozygotic trolls whose family tree looks like a Brussels sprout. This is one of my most watched videos. I think you’ll immediately see why.

LIONEL PODCAST: I Can’t Believe How Much This Guy Sucks. Seriously.

Let me count the ways. This is the worst lawyer in the world. Period. No one gets close to him. No one. He is the quintessential reference to “sucks.” He’s without peer in the sucking department. No one but no one sucks at anything more than this guy sucks at lawyering high profile serial rape cases.

We may be Penn State. But the university, the football team and Gawd knows what’s toast. I truly feel for the people who’ve tethered their souls to this hallowed institution. But now, thanks to Sandusky, Paterno and a Sgt. Schultz group of big wigs, it may all be over. No, this won’t bankrupt Penn State, but no one can even gauge just how badly the image and brand have been irreparably scarred. The lawsuits will begin in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1.
