Mensagem:  For the record, the word "expandable" exists.  It means something that can be expanded, made larger.  Examples can be files, pants, etc.

There is a wonderful book and a good movie called "The Expendibles" about PT boats (patrol torpedo boats) during the early weeks of World War II in the Philippines.  Perhaps the reader recalls that John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the skipped (captain) of a PT boat until a Japanese ship cut it in half.
