You know that feeling that something is off. It’s the feeling that things don’t quite add up. Something bugs you and you can’t quite put your finger on it. That is what detectives call your hinky meter.
We all have a hinky meter. The only question is what has your hinky meter been trained to detect.
Great auto mechanics can listen to a car and figure out what’s off. Doctors like House M.D. can suss out that a seemingly plausible diagnosis doesn’t quite make sense. And Hunter Maats a.k.a The Tutor of Death can quickly find holes in people’s mental game. That’s what sets his hinky meter off. And Fundamentalists drive his hinky meter wild.
However, just because you sense that something is off that’s not the same thing as putting your finger on it let alone fully revealing to people what is off. In this first part of a two part series, Bryan and Hunter unpack why people like Alex Jones, Tom Woods, Sam Harris, Donald Trump and Joseph McCarthy send our hinky meters wild.
Who sends your hinky meter wild? Tweet us and we miiiiiiight talk about them in part two.
