Cobra would probably have taken him when he was in his 30s. It is hard to maintain that much strength at around 50, plus he only weighs around 170. The match was pretty close, in a month maybe Cobra wins.
I was more suprised in how Underwood handled Craig Tullier. Craig hits extremly hard. The on...

The show is pretty fake. I used to armwrestle and trained with Craig and Cobra. Most of the guys in the show on the different teams are good friends with each other. The Louisiana team has some better armwrestlers than Jerry, the 3 finger guy, and turbo, but they are kind of quiet normal looking guy...

10 year old cheaper 4 ton outside unit.
I have a leak where the pipe comes out of the compressor. I had a leak repaired in the same spot 4 years ago. The compressor starts hard because the inside and outside system don't match and the vibration is causing the joint failure.

I have a p3 pro. It works as advertised, but it is a pain to tape up clubs so the sensor can detect it.
If its more for a man cave than instruction, I would just get the new Xbox with the Tiger Woods golf game.

Driving it could make it worse. Usually there will be some sort of change in the driving characteristics before total failure. I wouldn't ride around with the radio loud so you can pay attention to your truck. If it shakes or gets a lot worse rapidly, pull over.

You are in a tough situation. You really don't have any good options. You can fight the grade change, but even if you win the admins will try to push you out.

They are very limited in changing grades. They can only change grades if they can prove teacher error or if a student wins an appeal. There is a process and everything must be documented.
This happened at West Feliciana High about 10 years ago. A teacher's grades were low and an administrator ch...
