We had expects its not coming up. The moment troops out now probably gonna. To -- both. -- couldn't select -- because it was so crested ever thanks. -- -- -- It's doing this this new. Though. The battery died look at did not think that common. Now this went in there. More and then about two thirds of the way charge so that's kind of interesting that the battery seemed to have suffered we will charge it up for a little while let it stop.

I gotta say though it's not broke in its source so gonna conductor extreme test. Now we happen across CBS interactive president inland -- -- gods was never. Going to say -- to the opportunity to throw the -- on forest on the stairs and and I don't know com. The three starting over and over to restart itself. -- Can't -- see any chips. But it won't -- can credit -- pretty dirty. Guarantee you those might actually be totally broken very happily did some damage to its -- -- have a little chip as I can thing of the -- will. Better nestled -- effective. -- for results that. Think this is. And this happens to this -- -- him. It's a pass fail grade anything Sylvester fail well I think this -- a little bit of a baby -- her. It's pretty good now in general we definitely we took a little couple chunks out of it but aren't -- the -- -- -- run over. -- -- -- -- -- -- Right time for the -- test here we -- -- -- -- Limits of their first I can't.
