      lol Hey Wise Guy! Right here ;)
      BL I have a question. @ 2:04- 2:08, after RHex jumps and “grabs a hold of the ledge”, can it pull itself up and continue from there? I think that would be cool to see.
      Overall a VERY amazing robot! I wonder if they will make a larger version?

        Well, you’re on almost every page, and in almost or maybe all my arguments, so your kind of popular. ;) (Some other guys are: Potato, Wise Guy, Avenger Nerd, Owen, The Doctor, Ninjapies44, Pepper Scout, Clay Swartz, Billy Bob Bo Jim, & Pedro. But for now, your most popular. ;) ) I hope you had a great time! :) I wish I went with you!!! :( Where did you go in the Carribean??? :|
