    Vettel's driving style gets the most out of the Red Bull because the car was designed for him , not Webber's driving style

    I'm totally serious , the car has been refined to his driving style over the last 4 seasons

    The amount of money and energy dumped into doing that must be tremendous, and a closely held secret. I've been impressed by the research that goes into crafting bicycles for Tour de France favorites, and that's just tailoring a relatively simple machine and some clothes for someone. The RB9 is an amazing machine.

    Red Bull's F1 budget for 2013 is purported to be $250 million , the smallest team Marussia is at $65 million

    Larry Ellison's America's Cup team spent a reported $300 million. How many cars/drivers in the Red Bull stable?

    Be careful. I wouldn't want you to fall out of your assigned recliner.

    Yeah, but you can still do swiftwater training. I'll also bet that if you were called in to work, you'd do your job and keep your aches to yourself. Many of the youngsters I work with need more personal attention than any girlfriend I ever had. Whether it's day care issues or a stubbed toe, it's a big deal that everyone needs to know about. Generation Facebook.

    Haha... That actually made me laugh but you make a valid point. Kind of sad actually when you think about it.

    Compare that to the WWII vets that often refuse to talk about any of the incredible things they saw and did. As you know, that can be unhealthy, too. I believe there's a time for thoughtful discussions about personal events, but it appears that a high level of narcissism drives a lot of behavior. Nothing new, but social media has allowed it to be amplified beyond anything seen previously.

    Btw, anyone interested in PTSD might find On Combat (Grossman) worth their time. Grossman's first book, On Killing, is also interesting, but I found On Combat to be a better read, and more useful, since it goes beyond identifying causes for PTSD and suggests methods for avoiding it in the first place.

    It's a good read.
