In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
What a build! My birthday was this month. Anyone want to give me that as a birthday gift?

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
Looks like it hasn't even been tested. I would love to see that thing flex.

It looks like that because it went through a big revamp in 2021. It’s been on rubicon, fordyce, the hammers and many more.
