Interesting but I was distracted by his pronunciation of centrifugal.

Bogie--I'm laughing because I had meant to include in the posting about never having previously heard the pronunciation that the speaker used for centrifugal. It took me back to the days when I was taking a course (Theory of Elasticity?) from a professor from China.

It was very difficult for the two of us (out of a total of six) in the class who were not Chinese speakers to understand anything he said. At least, the professor's pronunciation of negligible, though strange to us, was always recognizable. His pronunciation placed the emphasis on the second syllable rather than the first as would we Americans (and British). The professor was always dismissing "negligible terms" from equations.

That is why I like being a Civil Engineer. We just assume everything is static. 🤣

[That] was a laughing face emoji. I was posting from my iPhone. I guess it did not translate through to a “real” computer.

That would possibly(?) make an interesting alternative to a Lomcevak ;-)

Ingineer--Thanks for the clarification!

Stu--Lomcevak was the first thing I thought of when watching the video. Great minds....
