Mr. Dawkins said he approached the electric shock treatment barrier and turned to a tough mud employee for guidance.
\"I asked the waiter, \'What is the strategy to solve this problem?
\"He said to me, \'Run as fast as you can, you\'re done, \'\" Dawkins said \'. \".
\"I ran a lap with my friend, rushed into the obstacle, and then (I)
I felt that the spine was strongly impacted, the limbs were contracted, and there was a strange feeling under the legs.
