Earlier this year, it got another update to include WRC and MotoGP history as well.
Now I’ve included Formula E. As the viewership numbers of F1 are sharply declining, I believe that the electric circus might be the next contender for the crown of motorsport. It has already overtaken F1 in the US.
My country is experiencing another massive wave of protests. This is time it is the diaspora that came home to express their frustration with the current occupiers of our Parliament. It is the same diaspora that helped put our current president into office back in 2014, with high hopes. Yet the “thieves” (hoții in Romanian, the slogan of the protests) in the Parliament have been working diligently for the past year to create a plethora of contorted laws that will make it next to impossible to make them pay for the suffering they have caused. Yesterday’s (and today’s, and the past year’s..) protests are the crying out loud of a generation. An entire generation that was let down by its country and forced to live in exile, often on the brink of Europe’s luckier countries. Millennials, my generation.
It doesn’t get into my head why train travel in the UK is just so expensive… Often it is cheaper to fly to Asia than to take the cho-cho 200 miles south.
Maybe the low-cost airline market (a truly privatized industry with fierce competition) works the magic of the invisible hand better than the monopolized Virgin-khm.. West Coast railway? (yeah, yeah I know, it’s not monopolized… of course it isn’t)
