Are you sure today is the best time to talking about these things? HQ is going on pause today.

I am not sure if pausing a stream focused on FRC is the right thing to do or the wrong thing to do. FUN has been focused on providing the content that we have and I would have trouble remembering a time when content was created that had any focus outside of STEAM.

There’s no harm in postponing our content. We love our audience especially those who watch live during the off-season (that’s dedication). Knowing so I believe our core audience will watch us another day. I will follow up to when this show is rescheduled.

That’s kind of the point. Today, there is only a selected number of things which we should be focusing on, and this is not one of them. Good call on postponing - thanks for doing that.

Ask about Chezy Champs if it’s possible

The heat gun is surprisingly the smaller producer of hot air of the two hot air generating devices in that gif.

Are you telling me that Adam is a Pneumatic Device?
