* Dirk Nowitzki became a very curious case in the NBA in regards to this. His style of basketball is very different from the standard seen in America - he never showboats, he does not risk fouls, he does not make flashy moves - but he can score practically ''anywhere'' within range of the basket. And draw a foul in the process. He also rarely misses free throws.

Added DiffLines:

** Efficiency: young Michael Schumacher didn't have much money. To get the most out of his seriously limited funds, he preformed his practice rounds on the go-kart track when no one else want to use it - when it was raining. No wonder that he became a legendary "rainy weather" Formula One driver. He could not only handle unstable behavior of his race car (regardless whether he was racing or wet or dry tracks)...this was actually his preferred setup. Other drivers considered his car's behavior uncontrollable and simply insane.

** When the people behind the ICE had to decide on a color-scheme various colors floated around, but none got majority support. Ultimately someone said: "Guys, if you can't agree on anything, we're gonna take white". The prototype was delivered in white with a single crimson stripe along the entire length. More than twenty-five years and four generations of [=ICEs=] later, the only thing that has been slightly modified is the color of the red stripe. The overall white design has stuck and earned several design awards.
