By On January 14, 2020

This would be a much simpler Bible Bite to compose if one was a mechanic and understood what an engine cylinder was. People say: “Well, the thing just has no power.” And the response before the days of electric cars used to be: “What else can you expect – it’s only a 4 cylinder!!”  Some enlightened car enthusiasts might be…

By On December 10, 2019

Maybe there wasn’t a Martins Licis in King Hezekiah’s day. Licis, also known as Dragon, is the Latvian-born American professional strongman who won the 2019 competition for the World’s Strongest Man. If you were nervous about the current state of things, you might be able to relax more if this 6’3″, 331lbs world champion had your back. But there are…
