Yawn...

Yes, that looks like a fan. But unless you have abnormally small fingers, the fan is much larger than 10mm. Why don't you just test it?

By "can" do you mean "may" or do you actually mean "can". Being able to make something does not necessitate being able to break it.

Those who say we can't fully understand God are getting close, but have missed the mark somewhat.
