I Built a Sweet Model Airplane and I Want to Beat My Friends

So my friends and I started a model building contest. I won’t deny that we occasionally are complete spazzes. And yet, we are upstanding men who have careers and aspirations. We do not live in anyone’s basement, we are respected by family and friends, and, unlike many adult men who assemble model kits, we have known a woman’s tender caress.

But none of that is important! What’s important is that my friends challenged me to a contest and I couldn’t back down. So if you see this before 3 a.m. EST on Tuesday, Jan. 6 (midnight Monday for the other competitors on the West Coast), please click HERE and take a look at the site, look at the slideshows, and cast your ANONYMOUS vote. (It only lets you vote once.)

I’m not asking for you to vote for me, specifically. That would be unethical. If my model of the B-58 ‘Hustler’ is to win, it must happen on the skill of my build alone. I can’t ask you to vote for me just because you’re a loyal visitor to my page.

See, none of my friends has a blog. That would be unfair. They just… run entire newspapers and have bigger extended families and more Facebook friends than I do. But again, not important. HOWEVER, if you happen to be a long lost friend or former student who’s been Google-stalking me, feel free to remember all the good times we had. You know, in case you can’t figure out who to pick.

UPDATE: I lost.
