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:

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

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…
