Bryan Caplan, author of Selfish Reasons to Have More Children, responds to the joke in my review about how I hope that people who like his book have more children and people who prefer watching the Kardashians on reality TV have fewer by asking: "What did stupid people ever do to you?"
Professor Caplan's previous book was entitled The Myth of the Rational Voter: Why Democracies Choose Bad Policies, so I think he may have already answered his own question.
Meanwhile celebrity news website What Would Tyler Durden Do was so impressed by Dr. Caplan's presentation of twin and adoption evidence on the crucial question of nature versus nurture, that Brendon applies those genetic insights to what we can learn from Lindsay Lohan's life. (Scroll down to final paragraph.)
It’s kind of sad. Maybe [Lindsay Lohan] could have been more than she is, but she was born to two white trash retards and this is what you get. This is why we need to take away kids' bike helmets and hand them lit fireworks taped to a dodge ball. That stuff used to kill or at least maim all the clumsy, slow witted dumb asses. The rope swing was their natural predator. Now they grow up and have 8 f'n kids all exactly like Lindsay.
In another post on WWTDD, Brendon points out:
Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes got married Friday night, and while they’re no doubt out somewhere celebrating that fact today, Cibrians ex wife Brandi Glanville unpacked at her new (smaller) house ...
Nonetheless, she’s still the winner in all this because she’s way way hotter than Rimes. Cibrian is an idiot. It’s like he just traded in a 2011 Maybach for the passenger seat from a 98 Accord, and the seat smells like urine and periodically fires a spring into the back of your balls.
I'm sorry, Brendon, that your test ride didn't turn out wholly satisfactory, but I specified in my Craigslist ad, and I quote: "98 Accord, may have certain aesthetic and mechanical issues." So, don't say I didn't warn you. Look, do you want the Accord or not? I'll knock $250 off the asking price, but that's it. Your whining about it on WWTDD won't make me go any lower.
