    It's actually just there for disassembly and to give enough thickness to the lower. You could probably shorten things, if you wanted.

    Enlarged the ejection port and added the gasket (finally):
  3. Yeah it was breathlessly reported as Trump blasting his own spending bill, but look at the actual tweet: Trump doesn't say the spending bill was bad. He isn't lampooning the people who passed it. He's saying it's big. He said it was big before the bill passed (he advertised it, in fact). So the angle that Trump is one-eightying here is based entirely on one word: "Crazy!". Well "crazy" probably just refers to $716,000,000,000 which is an undeniably crazy amount of money.
  4. I feel like I'm the only person that gets the angle here. Trump is saying "it's good that we passed the spending bill, but isn't it ridiculous that we have to spend so much on defense?" That's the angle. Now is this political maneuvering? You betcha. He's definitely sending signals to the MIC deliberately. He does that all the time, see ye olde "watchout Lockheed or we'll buy Super Hornets instead of Panthers!". Of course you wouldn't call a spending bill "crazy" before it had passed. Trump isn't stupid.
  5. I know what that is!
