yeah its like 50 pages long ppl talking about pencils i mean i will say it is easy to go down the pencil rabbit hole ive been there esp if u r into mechanical pencils i mean youve got the pencil itself the led (brand plus gauge) then you have erasers i think the hi polymer erasers are pretty much objectively the best eraser in town these days

I honestly don't understand how the answer choices are weakening any of these arguments. I mean, I read Manhattan forum and I get that they're "best choice," but they are so far from the argument cores and conclusions that I would never get these on an actual exam. For example, PT11-S4-Q21 about natural resources like flint not running out because we can replace them with new technology, in which the answer was that water and air can't be replaced with technology, and PT12-S4-Q11, in which the correct answer choice actually ends up strengthening the conclusion but does weaken the argument itself.

(Un)officially have a cold - been getting it all week and I woke up really congested. Not the worst timing if I can power through it and get healthy within a week or so. Tried to take a section drill this afternoon and I just couldn't concentrate at all. I won't be able to PT tomorrow (work and other responsibilities), but I really need to PT Sunday to stay fresh.

According to family legend, for the first few months of my life, I would barf every time my dad tried to hold me. After I had a few years under my belt and I realized that he didn't mean me any harm, I became his biggest fan. I think babies are just very sensitive to change. Private_funkadunk will warm up to you with a little time :)
