Sometimes it's good to look closely at a rule and make sure it makes sense.

It is snowing here in Montreal. That doesn't seem right. It's just corn snow, but still ... an evening to be indoors.

any thing the goverment trys is s ripoff. space stuff can only happen if cost is no object is taken out of the picture. The goverment pays $129 for an ash tray for planes that were $ 1.69 at pepboys auto about 40 years ago. goverment is stealing from us. and always will. Industry must work for money.
