The Devil and the Deep Sea- Clinton vs Trump

Well, this was how they looked during the debate.
Maybe Trump a little more funnier and Clinton a bit more freaky. Thats it.


After Barack Obama , I really can't imagine either of them being called Mr. or Madam President. Well, I saw the debate. There are two differences that I found between the ones held in my college and the Presidential Debate.



#1.- Us- We fight like mad people. Literally screaming to get ourselves heard over the other's
               nonsense.
       Them- Hillary Clinton was giving a freaky smile, showing all her 32 teeth ( i am just assuming,                      there may be less) the whole time while Donald Trump was the improvised version of                          Donald Duck himself.

#2.- Us- We talk to the point.
       Them- They spoke in circles.

Similarities ?

We take everything personally and so do they.

Okay. So here is the summary.

The debate was of 90 minutes, divided into 6 segments in which they would discuss various topics. The questions were not known to the candidates and were entirely Lester Holt's. That was the part I thoroughly enjoyed partly because I was fresh and the thought of seeing a "Presidential Debate" had me charged up. I rather Holt was one of the candidates himself and not the moderator.


Coming to the "Presidential Debate".
A 2- minute video was put up on Snapchat which prompted me to see the whole debate. Both parties spoke well. But they are speakers. That's part of their job. No points on that. Clinton reminded me of my numerous teachers who would complete one topic in 45 minutes by just going on in circles about the same thing. Only she went a step further. She managed to do this for 90 minutes.  The whole thing was basically about job opportunities.

I became a fan of Trump's expressions from the very beginning. When Clinton became monotonous, the screen would shift to Trump. See, even the cameraman knew.  But looks are deceptive. Trump actually got Clinton to talk on a topic she didn't know about. That's the reason behind all the Job Opportunities stuff.

One difference between the candidates:
Trump kept on referring to America as "our" country.
Clinton said "you" and "us".
 *impressive*

I would close by adding Scott Adams' conclusion to my article:

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.


 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…

1st road trip – 1314kms – Mumbai-Goa-Mumbai

The journey is more important than the destination. I learnt driving 2 years ago (enrolled for a driving class 3 days after my 18th birthday) and since then I’ve driven on every possible type of road. But I wanted more. Flying by air didn’t excite me. I wanted to look out of the window to trees and open roads; not clouds. 2 weeks ago after lots of pleading or logical reasoning (as I like to put it), I finally convinced my parents to accompany me on a road trip to Goa. At first, they were a bit apprehensive of the length of the journey (owing to previous bad experiences with bus travelling), but then again, you gotta do what you want to do.

The route we selected was Mumbai – Pune – Satara – Kolhapur – Amboli Ghat – Baga, Goa. We only did one stopover for the night at Pune. The rest was a continuous drive with only a 45 minute halt for lunch before the start of the 73km long, 3.5 hour Amboli Ghat.


Note: Just after the food mall at Lonavala and before the start of the ghats, is a small s…

I went to Goa with my parents. And trust me, it was fun. For one, you really don’t have to worry about money when you’re out travelling, shopping, eating or drinking. Secondly, you have a 90% success rate of going to all the places YOU want to go to, instead of compromising for the sake of your friends.

Now I stayed in Goa for 4 nights, two of which were in Baga and the other two in Candolim. Both places were booked via Airbnb. One advice: Avoid booking a hotel room, even if it’s near a beach (I don’t understand people’s obsession with beaches; they’re quite dirty and crowded). Instead,.......
