    There’s something about Ronson’s delivery that is so disarming that he always leaves you with the impression of a total ingenu.  Even though the quickest glance at the guy’s resume demonstrates that he’s a total veteran pro.

    In a weird kind of way, Ronson accomplishes a lot of what Hunter S. Thompson did, although from a position 180 degrees away from him on the personality spectrum.

    It’s funny,I listened to this podcast on the 1st August,and Jon mentioned about mother’s getting superhuman strength and being able to lift cars off their babies,but he hadn’t heard of any real cases in the news. Today (August 2nd) I see this story in the news –
    “Daughter lifts cars off dad pinned underneath”
    ” An American woman is
    being lauded as a hero after she saved her father’s life by lifting a
    car off him when he became pinned underneath.
    Lauren Kornacki, 22, was leaving her parents’ home in Glen Allen,
    Virginia on Saturday when she saw her father Alec’s car collapse on top
    of him while he worked beneath it, WWBT reports.

    Ms Kornacki’s mother Liz said her daughter let out a “primal scream” as she told her to “dial 911”.

    But rather than waiting for help to arrive the 22-year-old literally took matters into her own hands.

    “I just lifted up kind of right here and just kind of threw it, shoved
    my body as hard as I could then I came back and dragged him out and
    started CPR,” Ms Kornacki said.

    Her lifeguard experience came in handy as she kept her dad alive while she waited for an ambulance to arrive.”
