Another one.

I think the nose is slanted down a bit more than usual and that could be dangerous. Right?

Yeah, I appreciated his support, but I didn't presume that 99% of people didn't know. I was just hoping a few people who read it would pause and go, "that's cool."

I thought the part about how they're using it is interesting. also the patent is from 1997. it's so crazy to see an idea formed and now finally utilized years later with the aid of enhanced technology, cheaper materials, etc
