    Personal Study is one of the core principles of the getting right in life.

    • In our work environments we study our craft. Many spend years in study/testing to perfect our trade
    • We also have hobbies. We pour over stats and allot countless hours reading, studying, practicing, repeating
    • The HIM applies this same dedication to accelerate his faith and understand the many facets of his belief system. Why is it that we spend so little time digging into and analyzing what it means to have a belief system and honing our belief system through question, challenge, investigation, meditation, and resolution.
    • “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than and double-edged sword it penetrates to dividing even soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
    • YHC challenged the PAX to devote concerted effort to exploring, challenging, and honing your own personal belief system. Invite others to help you in this effort. The truth has nothing to fear from inspection, but lies fight to the death from being inspected and revealed.


    • The easiest way to have pax lose count during Colt 45 is to have Dreamliner start talking. This was normally self-induced and nearly always resulted in PAX receiving penalty Burpees.
    • When temps are below 40* overnight it is recommended that PAX store coupons indoors overnight or the coupons may induce contact frostbite.  
    • The Q is always right when it comes to determining who stopped early or late during Colt 45s. Its in the exicon…it’s gotta be fact! So when the Q loses count, then everyone gets penalty Burpees. But that doesn’t mean the Q is wrong. Marvel debated the merits of this idea.
