    Wow this is huge. I wonder if China was opposed to this. It could mean less reliance on China. Maybe it would mean more because of the need to improve infrastructure.

    Maybe explain how they can impact the world? I feel like it shouldn't be vastly different to guys. I just graduated but I'm not a chick, so take my advice with a grain of salt

    Yeah totally. Honestly, I think a lot of the complaints about F1 are valid, but I usually listen to F1 and not watch it. The commentators usually do a much better job than the race directors so I end up having a great time listening to the midfield battle and gasly. Obviously this race was a stand out. This has probably been one of my favourite races in the Hybrid era. Another one was last year Monaco, how daniel pulled it off still amazes me.

    I agree, Gasly was phenomenal just last year. Maybe its the pressure? I don't know, and I don't want to spread rumors. But maybe getting demoted and working his way up would be the best bet for his future in red bull. Right now the grid is absolutely packed with great drivers, except imo Stroll and Kubica.

    Didn't use the same title for spoiler reasons. But honestly what a great race. Just from yesterday's Quali session there was a good chance it was going to be a great race. The Top 5 also felt like such an accurate depiction of the next generation of this sport. I really wish the most success to all teams, competitive races are the best. While I was supporting Daniel, I am still appreciative of these kinda races. I hope Renault can compete to Redbulls level next year. Again, what a race. Defs going to be on the Netflix at the end of the year lol.

    Ps. I hope Gasly gets swapped out next year: he sucked ass the whole season. He was a head of Verstappen at the start of the race then ends up being lapped... Daniil seems the best candidate.

    Ah ok. I couldn't care less about punishing them, so I guess I'll stick to ad blocker.

    More interesting if you care for the tbh. Basically he was cut from Sauber at the end of last year even though people believe he performed well. He is being invited back but not as a F1 grid driver, but on the testing side. His replacements have done well: Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovanasi.

    Side question: why can't they just import medicine? Are there regulations stopping you from buying from foreigners?

    But thats the whole point of exploration right? It is new territory and you are naturally going to have few people at the start. But actually that might not even be true. If your product is good enough, it might become mainstream quickly. Look at the Wii Fit mat/board. There were games based on that, and it was pretty successful.

    Thats not what I mean. These festivals you are mentioning are not celebrating they are indian or chinese. They are celebrating an occasion. If you are solely talking about celebrating what you are Indian/Chinese/Gay/Straight/etc. yes I think we need to be at a point where we don't have to celebrate what they are. If you are talking about celebrating your history or a heritage, then that is completely fine, everyone should be able to do that, doesn't matter if you are a minority or not. There is a distinct difference between the two, in my eyes at least.

    All I am trying to say is we should be at a point where we dont have to celebrate or emphasize someones gender/color/sexual orientation, it should not be a big deal.

    Right, so I was looking at the link you said and it makes complete sense. But here are some of my counter arguments:

    1. More and more people are living in urban places, which is naturally going to be more cramped than a house in the country side. So you are going to be closer to your screen. Source: https://www.un.org/en/development/desa/news/population/world-urbanization-prospects-2014.html
    2. People are buying bigger TVs, so like the chart shown in your link, you need higher resolution. Source: https://www.statista.com/chart/3780/tv-screen-size/

    Please note: I am not gay or anything, but that doesn't mean I am out to offend you or your choices, you do you, whether you are a person or a company.

    I absolutely dont care for pride months or any month/week/day of any group. I personally past these things because it suggests a lack of normalization. Like, the fact that we have to have something like this means we haven't truly accepted it. So I'm not saying get rid of it because its an eyesore or anything, I want to get rid of it because it shoudn't be a big deal. Its the same way I feel about those first female/asian american/ black/ etc. to do x.

    I recommend you go in blind for the best experience, it is a British comedy with romance and mental health big parts of the focus.
