I think it has to do with Trump being worth much less. Remember Tim O'brien reported Trump's net worth to be only about $100M~$200M and Trump sued without success. Also Trump disclosed financials claiming he is worth $10B by inflating his assets as much as possible, but I would imagine the nature of tax returns are that he would do the opposite and try to report at the lowest possible creating a big gap between his publicly inflated net worth and private.Also the returns...
I think with wagyu it just comes down to preference. IMO western beef is more unforgiving in the range it still tastes good...if you cook it too rare it's not good and if you cook it medium or above it's not good either. On the other hand Wagyu tastes great raw/sashimi, you can cook it very rare, medium, or even well done and still have a good result (it depends on the meat you're working with though). I notice most Japanese steakhouses cook their meat about medium rare...
Seems like he was pretty evenly matched against Ricciardo though. Also Verstappen vs Saintz is pretty evenly matched despite Verstappen getting most of the attention. It's not like Verstappen was always much faster in qualifying or much better in the races. I think it would have been better to have Verstappen develop until the end of this year, then move him up, but I guess something else is going on behind the scenes.
Trump vs Republican Candidates & ClintonTrump was painted as a non-serious candidate doing it just for fun or publicityTrump was painted as a misogynistTrump was branded as a racistTrump was painted as promoting violenceTrump was branded as being a loose canon and unpredictableTrump had some big gaffs...Trump still won and will probably continue to win despite more negative branding and painting
Not a problem for me this time, because the race was a bit boring, so I watched at 1.5x speed and the cars looked much better
I'm not so sure Rosberg is actually on top of Hamilton speed-wise. The .5sec gap in Q2 could have been due to problems with Hamilton's car, and up until that point Hamilton was consistently faster than Nico. Also if you look at past qualifying so far this season Hamilton was faster than Nico in all of the qualifying sessions except for one session. Even in Q1 for this race, Hamilton was faster. So if you look back at all of the qualifying sessions (excluding China and Q2...
Actually I think SoCal is one of the best places for dressing in suits because there is virtually no humidity. I never felt too hot dressed in a suit there. The temperature really doesn't matter that much when dressing, as you can just adjust the material according to the temperature. It's the humidity that's the problem so dressing in a suit in places with high humidity is actually limiting.
Not including last season when it didn't matter, Hamilton is 2-0 in qualifying against Nico, so unless you expect Nico to win from 2nd place all season long and Hamilton having problems with his start all season long, I don't see any difference in performance between the two. The dark force may be Vettel. He should have won Australia and judging from the sluggish start of both Mercedes drivers, he could have won Bahrain...and even if he didn't win Bahrain he should have...
If Hamilton was slower than Nico in qualifying, I think the argument that he has peaked could be true, but actually it seems Hamilton is back to form with the new season start. Remember he qualified ahead of Nico by a pretty big margin in Australia, and edged out Nico under pressure in Bahrain (in other words, he's faster than Nico). The 2 loses in the races are all just down to the start/clutch not working as planned for Hamilton, and not really reflecting his actual race...
I agree. At the end of last year, Nico was beating Lewis in qualifying and the race. Now Lewis is back to form in qualifying, but it's just the start/clutch that is not working so good for him.
