It is a bad idea to put hairy arachnids or caterpillars in your mouth. That is unless you enjoy feeling like you have fiberglass stuck in your mouth tissues.

well it was worth asking. I'm headed out west this winter for some snowboarding so it may have been worth a slight detour to do some help-boarding

Just remember cutting edge speed equals overheated parts and short lifetime.
So wait for version 2 to buy, where they'll hopefully fix the heat problems. ;)
Or plan on installing your own larger custom heavily RF shielded fan (metal mesh box with brushless motors only) on the underside of the router.

Sharpest view of M31--the Andromeda Galaxy--taken by Hubble:

The actual image is 69,536 x 22,230 pixels and was constructed from 411 separate images.

Update on the "Pillars of Creation":

The left is the 1995 image that you've probably have seen while the right is one taken during 2014. More versions of the picture on the right in various sizes here.

I don't believe Satan is once explained in the NT (does not exist in Judaism, at least not as "The Devil"), but canonical Catholic doctrine is that he is God's servant in weeding out the unworthy. In general use in Christianity he seems to be a scapegoat for alleviating God of all responsibility of the existence of evil and suffering.
Remember, people, to forgive is divine. In other words, it ain't human.

What!? no! well... it seems that way but... everything is so contradictory... but the church says that's a "mystery" you can't understand. Lucifer, rebelled, so he was punished and sent to hell. People who sin are sent to hell as punishment... Satan makes people sin to get them to hell... so... is Satan building an army, or is God's enemy in charge of God's prison?

People make fun of the ancient aliens guy, but God and Satan being leaders of opposing alien factions fighting over control of the Earth is a much better story.

NOBODY knows God's plan, and NOT EVERYTHING on The Bible is the word of God. That much I know.

That is, if there is a God, and if that God is the Christian/Jewish/Muslim God.

Also, if anyone reading this can provide one... can I have a red pill please?
