Now do I know two signs in sign language?

When I was a kid, the horns sign meant bullshit, and I thought that was universal.  Later, however, it seemed to mean “rock on”, “Satan rules”, and “l love you”, or just “love”.  And to Italians, it means “your wife is unfaithful”.  Say what?  It means that you “wear the horns of the cuckold”, or unlucky husband.  It’s very confusing, but three of the meanings I listed do use the “horn” concept, so that helps a little bit.

 

I suppose that with only a handful of hand signs that are known to the average person, it would be inevitable that more meanings would be attached to each sign, making the hand sign handier, but the “horns” sign seem to be the primary example of this, with the other signs having only a few meanings in each spoken language.  Yes, among people who speak different languages, hand signs can have very different meanings than they do to English speakers, leading to occasional embarrassment for tourists and others who assume that their hand signs “obviously” mean the same thing to everybody.

that it is American Sign Language (ASL) slang for I love you. It is a combination of the signing of "I", "L" and the "U" of the alphabet.

Even though the "U" is the first and middle finger upright held together.

Sorry about that, we got carried away.  We'll buckle down.

I never thought a #8 wire would burn this much ink.

Thanks for the correction.  I’ve only seen it done (flashed?) by people who were likely guessing at it.  So is signing with ASL at conversational speed like playing an instrument, with muscle memory coming into play, or is it like riding a bicycle, like once you learn it, you’ve got it?

I couldn't tell you the answer to that. Maybe a bit of both. I kinda like the BS sign, though.

In my world, which few totally understand,

 

I'm really surprised that statement wasn't "jumped all over."

I would not worry so much about the absolute value of the cap, but rather, seek to get the highest quality of affordable multiple caps, to make up a " multiple capacitor bunch " to do the entire music spectrum linearly, not leaving any of the music out !! . 

 

Normally I would assume such a statement wasn't intended to actually convey the notion which was expressed.

 

Jeff, are you saying that if a high-pass filter design specifies some μF value, it doesn't matter how many capacitors you combine to get that value?  Or, God forbid, are you actually intending to say that the specified value is really immaterial?

 

I'd say "we've already discussed in the Capacitor Orientation Thread of a few months ago the effective ranges of the various capacitor values you specify, and what effect they could possibly have in a loudspeaker crossover" but there was only me talking during that discussion. 

 

You seem to care little about drawing distinction between disparate uses of capacitors, instead lumping them all together.  This is your chance to address this question specifically:  Is it important to match as closely as is practical a loudspeaker crossover capacitor design value, in whichever way, or is it unimportant?

Are we now saying we are concerned about the rotation of the wire inside its sheath??

(I am SO yesterday....)

Today at work, I spent the day at the Knoxville School for the Deaf.  (since my wife never listens to me, I felt right at home!!)

 

Anyway, for about six of my individual meetings, they provided an interpreter (professional).  She basically told me to forget she's there and just speak normal.  It was pretty interesting being in that dynamic.  I'd be speaking, the person I'm talking to is looking over my shoulder "reading" what I'm saying.  Then THEY say (sign) something and "a voice from behind me" tells me what he/she is saying.

 

There was very little lag in the conversation except for when I got into some of the technical stuff that the interpreter wasn't quite sure how to translate.

 

They're impressive.

That does sound interesting and impressive.  Thanks for sharing this.

But, low-hanging fruit is what it is.
