    Yep. Interesting. It was all a crapshoot for everyone. Some gained spots, some lost. IIRC the people who went onto inters early were something like 10s slower than the guys on slicks & it was looking like they were getting it wrong or at least had jumped too quickly. It was all going great for the guys on slicks while the rain stayed light. McLaren told Lando the drizzle would continue, so he stayed out. The Alpine pit wall told Alonso the rain was decreasing, so he stayed out. He's the one who made the call to come in on the next lap. It was also a risk well worth it for Alpine & Alonso, because if the gamble paid off, he was getting probably P2 at worst. As it is they tightened their grip on P5 in the WCC. Then the bottom suddenly fell out of the sky. There's no way to accurately predict fluctuations in rain intensity in small areas moment to moment, so everyone was just guessing. Had the rain stayed steady, the guys on slicks would have been the heroes. Some guessed right, & some guessed wrong. Fun stuff.
  2. Finally watched The Bodyguard. Just awesome. so well done. Richard Madden was fantastic.

    Yeah it was really just a dice roll for everyone. Alonso woulda had P2 had he pitted one lap earlier.

    Oops ... *He would have likely finished P5 or higher without the rain, but P6 is fantastic for that car.

    Heh, yep. It's usually easy around Bottas.

    Smart move though, and he gave the spots back. Great race by Alonso, esp in the wet on slicks. He would have likely finished P6 or higher without the rain, but P7 is fantastic for that car.

    Yeah, it has to do with lighter hydrogen molecules displacing heavier nitrogen molecules, so the air is actually lighter. I know it's counterintuitive. It's not a big difference, though.
  9. Self Awareness. The rest of the football world thinks many Texas fans lack self awareness. OK? The thing is I'm not talking about Texas's ranking, esp compared to some of the other stupid shit in that ranking. The point is that if the very first p;oll was today, it would look far different from these polls that were released today.

    Just fyi, all other things being equal, a ball actually travels better through humid air than dry air. Not much better, though.

    How fitting is it that Tuck breaks the NFL FG record with a got damn Game Winner? Just amazing.
  12. Yep. He was absolutely right. I've been lucky (or unlucky?) enough to compete with and against pros in 3 sports, and I can tell you that's exactly the trait that they all had in common. Losing is the worst thing imaginable. Winning is the only remotely acceptable outcome, preferably while crushing your opponent in every imaginable way.
