^^ good point. Haven't thought of that. Edomae just means something like "Tokyo style" (Tokyo used to be called "Edo" in the samurai days). Today, the main characteristics of Edomae is that the fish are supposed to come from Edowan (Tokyo bay area) and each piece of fish is supposed have some work done it by the sushi chef (like curing or additional cutting, etc.). Also, the sauce is already put on by the chef rather than the customer dipping himself. The edomae rules are...
They should have given the teams more testing time this year. At this rate, it seems like many of the teams will still be in "testing mode" for half of the season so we really won't be seeing much of the field actually racing.
I`m not an expert either, but I bet the freezing is more for fish like salmon. Also most tuna is probably frozen at sea. I wonder if the other types of fish are actually better frozen though. I can't imagine all the little sushi places doing business right in the fishing harbors just so they can serve frozen. Also, unlike sushi places in the U.S. salmon is not a common fish for sushi. Well, it is common now in Japan too among mediocre and cheap restaurants, but it is rare...
^^ never heard of that before. Some fish doesn't taste it's best fresh from the catch, but I don't think most places serve frozen (aside from the cheap places).

(This is day 3 of the final test so the cars are running at full speed)
If you're driving from Vegas, maybe try turning off on the 74 around Palm Springs. Take 74 towards Idyllwild to 243. Some good elevation changes, mix of tight and long bends. The 78, 79 around San Diego county is also very good with barely any traffic.
Exactly, that's a good example. Why buy the sedan version when the wagon looks better and has more utility?
Some wagons actually look better than the sedan version, like the BMW 5 actually looks better in the wagon version. If you don't agree, I'm assuming you're from the States
Saw the clips too and was disappointed in the sound. Sounds more like a lower formula car now. Interesting that Boullier is going to Mclaren as it seems a good possibility Whitmarsh may go to Lotus. Also on the management side it will be interesting to watch Mercedes since Brawn left. I wonder if this expensive rules change is actually going to end up being the right move. It sounds like a good idea to go "green" and make F1 more relevant technology-wise, but I have...
It looks like a car for someone who can't make up their mind between a Maserati or Aston.
