A week in links (away from home version)

I'm not a salesman.  I don't have the talent to persuade people that they need something from me.  I could tell you how it's good for you and go the extra mile to find the best possible choice for you, but as for me being convincing, I suck at it.  Terribly.

I tried to convince a few of my local friends to go to a tournament.  Didn't pan out well — I tried to appeal to their competitive side and give reasons why they should consider, but they didn't want to and that was that.  What can you do…

So I'll be away from the computer this weekend.  I don't normally tear myself away from the keys, but this is a special thing that happens every once in a blue moon.  I'll be visiting some old chums again; looking forward to that!  It's always good to share a beer with an old pal.

When Kusanagi from SMAP did his public "stunt", various companies immediately cancelled their contracts with him.  As a result, a new mascot was put in his place…this is 2ch's various "interepretations" of the new character (and is hilarious as always).
