Okay is good when it comes to fast food. Most if it isn't good.

We don't have many fast-food chains over here and those that exist are much smaller than US ones (they are usually one-two cities wide, not nation wide). So most fast food places are just some little shop ran by a few people and so quality and prices range a lot. Usually it is both cheap and good though the items are less fancy and convoluted than in international fast-food shops.

Speaking of which we don't have many international shops either, the only ones I've ran into are McDonalds (lots of them) and a few KFCs. I sometimes go to both for the chicken but otherwise they are underwhelming, Mc also has nice milkshakes so there is that too. For our price ranges Mc and KFC are actually rather expensive plus their portions are small which is why I am unimpressed by them. As I understand in the US Mc and KFC are one of the cheapest things to buy to eat yeah?

They're cheaper, yeah. McDonalds is not doing well in the US currently, to my knowledge.

Can any of you Air Force nerds tell me what "Lead Edge" means in a "Lead Edge Flap Actuator" assembly? Goes on an F-16, if that helps.

Here's the patent drawings since I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the completed assembly while I was at work.

The leading edge flaps are the flaps that go on the leading edge of the wing as opposed to the trailing edge. Another way to word it would be that they're the forward edge flaps, I suppose? If that's not clear enough, here's a pic of an F16 showing a leading edge flap up.

They don't give us much info to go on at work about what we're actually making parts for. Just the part # and the drawings for whatever stage(s) of production that particular component is at.

I'd assume they're the same, but I only went through the basics of F16 stuff. It's too bad WebFLIS isn't public anymore, or you could just look up the P/N and it'd tell you pretty much instantly. You can try putting it in this random pseudo-WebFLIS page I found. Looks like it just connects to various other public sites.

Guys Poke is a very persistent and rather skilled troll, many of the older posters know this. Don't waste time on him.

I've never been able to make up my mind on whether he is a pretty consistent and successful troll, or just a really weird, socially awkward crazy diamond. His persistence of staying in character has had me leaning towards the latter for quite some time.

Nah I saw him break character a few times, for sure he is a troll. Even if we disregard my claims the way he is apparently totally ineducable and impossibly clueless yet he keeps dragging people into long and dumb conversations is a huge red flag. He is not only a troll but a very good and persistent one.

I see where you're coming from but I don't think so. She can tease some times and even be quite passive-aggressive but most of the time she is quite serious. Besides a good troll can get a lot of people to talk a lot, get angry and tired while not typing much thus spending little of their time and energy. PJ is at best a bad troll in that regard, and imo not one at all.

I am also glad that we are friends despite disagreeing on a number of important topics however this was not about friendship, it was about telling the truth.
