Every time someone asks me if Ann Coulter says what she says “just for shock value” (which is 100% of the time New Yorkers discover I know her) I respond, “Please tell me one sentence from any of her books that is factually incorrect.” It’s called “The One Sentence Test.” MORE»
I don’t really know much about Gavin McInnes other than he’s the Godfather of Hipsters or something and he’s funny and an asshole. I read this interview with him today and I really liked what he had to say about going to the brain gym:
“Suffering isn’t easy but there’s joy derived from it. Look at working out. People put their bodies through pain to get stronger and lose body fat and replace it with muscle. Why can’t they do that with their brain? For me, arguing is like going to the brain gym.”

I know I’m biased but every time I read a review like this, I think it’s from someone who hasn’t really lived. Like, what are the odds this guy has been in a fight or tried heroin or even witnessed a threesome? I can’t even imagine him getting a tattoo. I’m not saying these things make you cool. There are plenty of losers who have lost themselves in each one, but I’m always suspicious of people who go out and tell people what’s good and bad about life when they don’t really carpe the diem themselves. Of course, there’s also the possibility the book is awful. Anyway, Paul here was not thrilled with the book and seemed to find the potential for sexism especially disturbing.
