I Think You're Fat
by possibly noteworthy at 7:28 am EDT, Jul 7, 2010

A.J. Jacobs:

Brad Blanton, a sixty-six-year-old Virginia-based psychotherapist, says everybody would be happier if we just stopped lying. Tell the truth, all the time. Oversharing? No such thing.

I have a theory: I think Blanton devised Radical Honesty partly as a way to pick up women. It's a brilliant strategy. The antithesis of mind games.

Janelane, on Dmitri the stud:

At least he had the courtesy to tell her he was good in bed so she knew what she was missing out on!

"Leonard Nimoy":

It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth?

The answer ... is No.

Paul Graham:

I'm not saying we should stop, but I think we should at least examine which lies we tell and why.


If you're going to be a schmuck, at least you should find some redeeming quality in it.

One of the best parts of Radical Honesty is that I'm saving a whole lot of time.

Penelope Trunk:

Stop talking about time like you need to save it. You just need to use it better.

Stewart Brand:

In some cultures you're supposed to be responsible out to the seventh generation -- that's about 200 years. But it goes right against self-interest.
