    Thanks Dillon!

    (But you don't get full credit until you post a pic of yourself dancing it!!!)

    Oh, for crying out loud.830205456_DilDances.thumb.png.b6db39bbdc858e842a0bdc90ba7a13f3.png

    Does this also count for the Home & Garden thread? It's my front yard. Thanks to all the people driving by who shouted encouragement like, "Get over yourself!". Buncha creeps.

    I'll dance to anything but if you want my best there's only one way to go.

  2. There's at least am eighty percent chance that the last time I danced one of my animations (as opposed to someone's chim/HUD) it was Akeyo's NINA2_Dance. I bought it years ago and love it. A couple months ago I visited the main store to see what was new; I spent most of an afternoon trying every dance they had. NINA2 (which is still available there) still rules, for me.

    I got pushed into the sea in similar circumstances to the OP when I was new. I'd barely rezzed and I saw an Avi come fast at me from the side . Next thing I'm underwater. But then without doing anything I sprang back onto the jetty.

    It was just a surprise, it didn't bother me, and that's the only time (so far). How do they do that? Do they need a HUD or something? 

    I know in the top menu there's a push/shove option to report such morons...............It's hard to imaging an adult doing that, so I guess it's a misfit juvenile.

     

    I think what you're seeing at the top of the screen is probably an icon meaning "No Pushing"; the landowner has set Pushing disabled on the parcel. Almost everyone does this. It's what prevents you from scattering dancers like billiard balls when you lag-walk through a crowded club on arrival :-).

    I showed Ki that sprout picture and his reply... "Sounds yummy"

    I am taking today to consider our 9 year partnership and if I can continue any association with him. 

    They say that every relationship will encounter the occasional bump in the road, but yours may have just hit the Himalayas.

    Be strong.

    "das kleine h" then unless it is Planck's reduced constant ħ (h bar) which is just called "h quer" then. AFAIK there is no big H bar in physics so every physicist will understand "h quer" without putting "das kleine" in front of it. But for non phyiscs folks you would write "das kleine h mit einem Querstrich, genannt 'h quer', "

    I'm pretty sure the whole name thing was just somebody's idea of a clever play on words. The world-certified kilogram of platinum that was the standard apparently really is called 'Le Grand K'.

  6. Thank you all. I tried ChinRey's auditory thing and the 'h' did sound like 'Ha', as Callum said. I think the 'h' in that translator sounded breathier than we typically pronounce it here, but nonetheless it was 'Ha'.  

    As for the gender, I'll leave that to others. Who am I to get fussy about gender, after all? The article I linked did say 'die', but of course that was the BBC.

     

    Oh. Just saw Maddy's post.  I forgot the secret!

    Run. Really, really fast.

  7. Just when I thought I knew the metric system, the kilogram has been redefined as an electric current (massive over-simplification, there). https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-46143399

    Actually I like this, as electricity is something I'm far more conversant with than say, acceleration, inertia, momentum, and gravity. But it has presented me with a small problem.

    I want to be able to say 'die kleine h' with a proper German accent, or as close as I can get to one. I know from middle school Conversational German that the two words are pronounced 'decline-uh'. I guess you'd have to be an English speaker to get my pronunciation words, but oh well. What I don't know is how to pronounce the 'h'. In English it's 'aitch' (which right off the top of my head doesn't seem to rhyme with anything). We learned to say the numbers in that class but we never learned to speak the alphabet.

    Can one of our several bilingual German/English speakers help? In return I shall tell you the secret way to defeat Maddy's fire attacks.

    The reason I want this information is so I can sound really hip around scientists and measurement nerds now that Le Grand K has been replaced by a whole 'nuther thing.
