    1. Did LAX shut down because of your knowledge bombs?
    2. I would own at Water-Water-Shot-Shot. I used to work in China. Google “doing business in China at Karaoke bars.”
    2. Denny must be your Marketing Guy. So so eloquent re: subbing heavy lifts for skill work.
    3. See you in November. I want to be the Grand President Ruler of Things.
