It’s Friday, so it’s time for Dick’s Details from today’s podcast. Dick’s Details is a bunch of totally unimportant stuff for you to stuff in one ear, so you can squeeze the important stuff that’s making you crazy out the other ear, and you can go grab a grin and win. The smart guys in the white lab coats tell us that one of the differences between men and women is that far more men than women are color blind. Seems to me that there are more fun ways to tell the difference between men and women. Those same smart guys say that gold fish will turn white if they are kept in a dark room. I guess they’re afraid of the dark. If the answer is “De-calfanated” what is the question? I’ll tell you in a minute. An average announcer can get about 58 words into a 30 second commercial. In the case of some drug commercials it seems like there are gusts to at least 158 words. Sound does not travel through a vacuum. But hopefully the dirt on your carpet does…travel through your vacuum…unless it’s not making any sound in which case it’s broken. If the answer is “De-calfinated” the question is what do you call a cow who has just given birth. Hey, a little bull never hurt anybody. Dick’s Details, they take your mind off your mind. Some house cleaning here: if you like these podcasts , or the spoken word story CDs at dicksummer.com or my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot at amazon.com, please tell a couple of friends because they might like them too, and you’d be doing me a favor. Thank you.

I think my friend Angela is going to beat the beast. And she does too. And that goes a long way to making it happen. I was frankly amazed that so many of you sent power and prayers to help her. It’s in today’s podcast. THANK YOU.

Big time worries in today’s podcast. Angela is a friend to both my Lady Wonder Wench and to me. Here’s what my Lady Wonder Wench wrote about it:

All right, now, listen up all you Louie Louie Lasses, and get your Wonder Woman mojo working ‘cause Louie Louie Lass Angela (she of the long fingernails and exquisite back scratch fame) is in the hospital in Brooklyn. Angela is in the hospital where she used to work and the folks there intend to take very good care of her. Now some of you will remember the night on live NBC radio when Dick was doing a commercial and Angela came into the studio behind him and started one of her famous back scratches – and the Lad said something like “gazorninplatz” instead of what was actually written for the commercial. So here’s the deal, Angela: do as you’re told and follow instructions to the letter. I know it will be tough, Angela girl, but please do what they tell you to do in the hospital. And keep those fingernails ready. We want you safe at home as soon as possible.

I have a back scratcher. It looks like a small hand on the end of a stick. I call my back scratcher, “Angela.” It’s in honor of the lady with the most talented fingernails I’ve ever experienced. The lady involved has a beastly problem. And today’s podcast is asking for your help to beat the beast. I’m not looking for money. Please listen, and help. You can do this.

Angela is a special lady. My Lady Wonder Wench and I have known her for a long time. I call her, “Angels.” She has a problem with “The Beast” right now. This is a huge, hairy beast with sharp claws and hungry teeth. She can use whatever prayers or positive power thoughts you can send her. So please do. I originally did today’s podcast about her years ago. It’ll give you an idea of the truly funny way we met. “Angels” is a good, tough, Brooklyn lady. If anybody can beat “The Beast” it’ll be Angels. But she can use all the help she can get today.

Results from the “Voice Only Test” from last week’s podcast: Just like the experiment done at Albright College, far more positive results than expected. I was sitting in my living room looking at a picture of my Lady Wonder Wench in a plastic covered frame during the test. She was wearing a light colored sport shirt in the picture. The two best answers: Carole Manion said, “You were looking at LWW or a picture of her while sitting in your ‘manly black leather poppa chair.” And from Bill Killeen…”You were looking at your lady in a light colored sportshirt accessory, an ascot?” Wow. You guys are good. No lie.

That was fun. Today’s podcast is not. And I really need you to listen…please.

Today’s podcast is about the difference between a hunch and a guess. A guess has a lot of figuring out involved. A hunch just hits you. There are bunches of important hunches in our lives that we usually don’t notice…sometimes because we don’t understand how the information is getting through to us. Can it be transmitted just through the sound of your voice? Maybe. What a shock that would be. Or maybe not. Maybe professor Hughes successful experiments were just a coincidence. But to be honest…a coincidence?… personally … I think not. That’s only a hunch of course. Give the podcast a listen please. You might/might not agree with me. Most people and some flowers always have to do things differently.

Dick’s Details…a bunch facts that defy authority from today’s podcast. Dick’s Details is a bunch of totally unimportant stuff for you to stuff into one ear, so you can squeeze the important stuff that’s been making too much noise banging around in your head out the other ear, and you can grab a grin & win. The zoo guys tell us that guy pandas have a distinct way of marking their territory. To prove that they are the most dominant, they stand on their heads when they urinate. The one who makes the highest mark wins. Guys…don’t do that. If you stand on your head in the men’s room and try to leave your mark as high up on the wall as you can, I doubt if the other guys in there will elect you as their leader.  If the answer is “a centipede with a wooden leg,” what is the question? Don’t know do you. I’ll tell you in a minute. The smart guys in the white lab coats have just explained what’s going on in Washington these days. They claim that humans and bananas share about 60 percent of their DNA. Finally an explanation for the people in our Congress. And here’s why nobody wants to kiss a turtle. There are some turtles’ species that can breathe through their anal cavity and urinate through their mouths. So I guess kissing a turtle would not be a beak experience. Yeech. If the answer is “a centipede with a wooden leg” the question is, “What goes 99 thump, 99 thump, 99 thump.” A centipede with a wooden leg. Wouldn’t want to take a nap with one of those guys running around on the floor in the apartment upstairs would you. Dick’s Details. They take your mind off your mind. A little housekeeping here. If you like these podcasts, or the spoken word story CDs, or my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot please tell a couple of friends, because they might like them too, and you’ll be doing me a favor. Thank you very much.

The difference between a hunch and a guess is that a guess usually involves some logic. A hunch just…hits. That’s what today’s podcast is all about. I think we’ve got to start paying more attention to our hunches. Because we need help. Seems like some big stuff is heading directly toward us.

There’s a fascinating test in today’s podcast. It’s based on some research from Professor Susan Hughes of Alright College in Pennsylvania. Professor Hughes ran some tests that seem to indicate that just from the sound of a voice, people can pick up all kinds of clues about someone who’s speaking. Give the podcast a listen and see if you can find out something about me just from the sound of my voice. Professor Hughes test seems to indicate that if you even think about cheating on your mate, your voice may give you away.
