I read more of the guy's blog. He has some good points, but most of it is just plain common sense. His PUA tips only apply to guys that women consider to be in their league or dating material. But none of it applies if girls don't think you are their type. Here are some of his interesting articles. ... -and-clubs

PUA blogs are about as useful as toilet paper. You wipe your ass once and you never see them again.

Most Americans don't even know that the very Interstates we drive all came from Europe (Germany). President Eisenhower signed the Federal highway act of 1956 after an extensive visit in Germany to see their roadways were all military accessible. I don't knock the US for its man power being able to build such a pass way across such a mass piece of land! Its the idea and no originality but gauck at the rest of the world as if it originated from the loins of the USA!

While I appreciate the effort it took to write all of that, most of these generalizations just pander to American stereotypes. Personally, I couldn't find a single point of argument that applied to me. While I can think of a couple of people that I know that might have a couple of these misconceptions or qualities, I cannot think of anyone that has more than a few at best. Generalizing about a country of 300+ million will always fall flat. There are countless incredibly dynamic, intelligent, well traveled and well educated people here. Although, I do know that certain groups are foreigners do get riled about the USA, and do think that all of these things are true about Americans. And it's usually my 'uncultured' and 'unmannered' ass shaking my head in polite silence as the 'cultured' and supposedly better-mannered Brit that I just met rants pointlessly about American stereotypes in front of me.
