I've listened to Art Bell since the early 1990s, and I was never too impressed with his intelligence. Until, that is, he started bringing in
George Noory to guest-host. That's when the show really went downhill.
See, Art Bell was no UFO aficionado — nether was he an expert on conspiracy theory nor cryptozoology nor anything else of a paranormal nature —
but at least Art made an effort to research his guests and their areas of interest, so he didn't appear to be a complete idiot.
George Noory, on the other hand, has consistently come off as a bumbling buffoon since Day One... I know the guy has worked in radio and television
for decades, but that doesn't mean he's intelligent. Judging from most of the crap on radio and TV, you have to be a bit of an arrogant,
self-aggrandizing moron to work in those industries, anyway.
Around the third time I heard Noory hosting Coast to Coast, he said something so inane that I couldn't go to sleep until I wrote it down.
This became something of a habit from then on — whenever I heard Noory uttering his nonsensical babble, I'd write it down verbatim.
Eventually, I had a list of "Nooryisms" that really makes you wonder if the man's brain is a burned-out cinder.
Here are just a few prime Nooryisms:
• "Mind control, what is it about the human brain that makes this happen?"
• "I watched 'The Last Samurai' with Tom Cruise, and ya know what, they were some pretty tough warriors!"
• "Is dehumidified water drinkable?"
• "So, can you explain how Creation evolved?"
• "There are a lot of thirteens involved with numbers."
• [In a discussion of electromagnetic pulse associated with nuclear detonations]:
"It's kinda like the little generators we used to put on our bicycle wheels, right?"
• "The United Arab Emirate is talking out both ends of their mouth."
• "In the early days of Mankind, you know, salt was considered a luxury — it was almost considered a spice."
• "Did dinosaurs and humans live together at the same time?"
• "I think our physical bodies are crucial in the growth pattern of our own existence."
• "Incredible claims require incredible efforts."
I think George Noory is a complete fool, but perhaps they gave him the mike for a reason... So as to never upstage the very mundane Art
