Friday Link Dump: Russian UFOs, Sandwichgate, McManus, and the Extinction of Las Vegas Coffee Shops

Here are a few links to get you through your Friday.
Did you see the "cloud" over Moscow? Sci-fi geeks are jizzing themselves because they believe it's proof of an UFO. You decide. The truth is out there. Trust no one. (NY Daily News)

During the EPT London at the Vic, brooding Luke "__FullFlush1__" Schwartz caused an uproar when he refused to pay for a sandwich. This wasn't the first time he's gotten into a pissing match with Grosvenor Casino properties. They decided to ban him from all properties after his sanwich stunt. The EPT repsonded and also said he was persona non grata for the rest of the season. The brash Schwartz was quoted as saying, "Who fucking cares about a £5 sandwich? It should be free." Anyway, Marty Derbyshire has the lowdown on the now infamous Sandwichgate. (Poker Listings)

And the masses react to Sandwichgate. (2+2)

Sandwichgate is so big that the gang at Melted Felt interviewed a doctor to get to the bottom of the drama across the pond. FullFlush Banned From EPT - Our Sandwich Psychologist Speaks is a must read. (Melted Felt)

I forgot to link up an educational piece from Jim McManus titled What Poker Can Teach Us. (The Chronicle)

Bye Bye Coffee Shops... Say it isn't so? Yeah, it's true. The 24-hour coffee shop/diner was a Las Vegas institution that is slowly dying out. I was angered when the Gold Coast got rid of their shithole of a coffee shop and whored the space out to TGIF. The old coffee shop was a sentimental place and the location of the Keno crayon incident. (The Die Is Cast)
That's it for now. Have a good weekend. Hope you get laid. Try not to kill too many braincells.
