Formula One 2013: Singapore

So Super Softs and Mediums.  1.5 Seconds between them.  Hardly anything else really matters.

BTW Massa has retired.  Raikkonen is in at the Scuderia.  Big News?  We’ll see next year if Alonso is as good (.5 seconds a lap) as I think he is because Raikkonen is no slouch.

I’d rather focus on how fucked up the TV coverage is (you know, because it screws up my sleep schedule and I get really cranky).  Qualifying at 1 am after a day of college throwball?  I’ve gone on strike for less.

I’m at 6es and 7s about how to handle the Winter Olympics.  There is no doubt that Russia is engaged in a progrom on LGBTs and I’m conflicted because it’s a big part of my blogging history and I really like curling.  Shuffle board on ice, what’s not to like?

But there is no denying that Putin is playing the Russian Orthodox Church on the social issues card and it’s killing people.  This is something our president deals away to prove how “liberal” he is and I feel bad about disagreeing with John Aravosis on this issue because I’m not gay, but I don’t think it’s a substitute for how he’s killing brown people in Yemen with drones or brown people in Detroit with SNAP cuts.

Oh, you just think he’ll stand fast.  I’ll believe it when I see it.  And I choose Detroit for irony.

So not back to Formula One.  In other races where billionaires spend billions Larry Ellison is but a single race away from losing the America’s Cup.

As Atrios frequently says, things are fucked up and shit.

    I’ve spent all night trying to get timing and scoring to work and now the race is happening.

    Vettel is driving away (who could have predicted) and I’m strongly tempted to nap.

    make a small fortune in racing…

    You know that old joke:

    Q: How do you make a small fortune in blank racing?

    (horse,car,yacht etc.)

    A: Start with a large fortune.

    Safety car out.

    I’d care but it would go against everything I’ve ever stood for.

    It catches everyone up to Vettel so I suppose it’s good.

    Vettel 54 seconds over Rosberg on the restart after a single lap.

    So that’s $400 million gone.
