Garrett:

From your pictures, you look way too young to be blowing out a hip. Get well soon!

Count me confirmed to attend this testing day. I'll bring my $15 cash.

Definitely too young to fracture a hip, but it taught me a major life lesson.

Don' forget the Extra Class question pool changes at the end of June. So If you are planning on extra the question will be different beginning next month.

You were close last time. Crunching may be all you need.
