I'm ready to go we do have some key differences actually for one thing -- There's a case on this phone and a wrist strap because my worst fear. You're like me and didn't know until bunny -- a field -- -- cool yeah. So I have like -- what is the mine has a ballistic and I think -- cases zero no rights on the off chance that we do drop let me -- like supplemented by tape taped. And I was making front commercial convict I didn't have a phenomenon but I'm neither like -- -- He had gloves right we're not doing gloved hand because you can't operate the phone with gloves on now I have -- go probe right here. It's going to be a lot of footage -- -- -- perfect and you weren't allowed and I share the always on crew -- taking side bets on who's gonna get the benefit. It's past it's now it's gonna be me don't bet against manner boxes and a little bit. -- -- Okay. -- And. -- -- -- -- -- And -- -- -- -- Has a good idea. -- It's totally -- I got to set up Baghdad.
