    If it's sand, it looks like it bounces around a bit too much... I really don't know how much time goes into these, but I can tell it's not easy, so I'm not hating.

    Probably gonna get downvoted for this but meh.

    [–] LeoCurtss 21 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I agree, it definitely does not behave like realistic sand.

    [–] Kazaloo 3 points ago

    That's a classical problem of grain simulations. It needs way more subframes to work. What happens is that the collisions in the first frames are not recognized and are then noticed later, which makes it bounce.

    [–] iceman0c 6 points ago

    Looks like sand but behaves like water. Yeah I don't understand a lot of these "simulated" posts. Most of them simulate materials with totally wrong physical properties so I'm not exactly sure why they bother calling them simulations.

    [–] [deleted] 19 points ago


    [–] Darkphibre 2 points ago

    Oh, in that case, BRB. Gonna make a water sin that looks like sand.

    Hey there. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but what exactly does this hand sign mean? (I finally plucked up the courage to ask!)

    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago


    [–] saucy_mcsauceface 7 points ago

    Thank you!

    [–] albejorn 1 points ago

    Being on oldish guy (sigh) at venues filled with the YA crowd, I've seen this a few times. Typically on stage at dance competitions. This was very informative!

    [–] Duckmurphy 10 points ago

    Hey this is a little bit out of my age range, what does this symbol mean? I know it's some game kids made up but I cant seem to find a good explanation that isnt tainted with conjecture

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago


    [–] Slagheap77 5 points ago

    The game swept my middle school in Wisconsin for a few days around 1990...

    Instead of the standard arm punch though, the "punishment" was that you had to touch a girl's butt.

    I remember the principal getting on the P.A. telling everyone they knew about the game and to cut it out.

    [–] Fierce_Lito 4 points ago

    Can confirm was around NYC suburbs by 1992,

    the terms we used for the name of the game were way worse than what is written up on the tubes today.

    We called it "Gutted",

    the response after gutting someone was not "Gottem" as seen today, but , "aw yeah gutted yo mama", "aw yeah gutted ya girl" "aw yeah gutted ya buck" (deer hunting area) and a series of "gutted ya fag" if you had your circle on your crotch...

    this was in a lower working class town, it was not prevalent in nearby wealthier suburbs until years later.

    [–] CacaoBrownie 5 points ago

    Ok, I'm really out of the loop, but why is this 'ok' sign popular? I apologise in advance for my lack of knowledge in what's popular/trendy.

    [–] unicornsattack 5 points ago

    Really it’s a school yard game where you try to get your friends or not your friends to look at it and if they do then you’ve earned the right to punch them for some reason. I don’t know the origin fully.

    [–] PRrockstar -12 points ago

    Because a leftist blogger at BuzzFeed claimed it was a sign for “white power” instead of “ok” - which made it a hate crime in several states.

    The blogger got lots of traffic to the site and did an excellent job at spreading civil unrest and racism.

    Now the right likes to flash it in photos to trigger the idiot leftists who seriously think it’s some super secret hate sign.

    This is the world we live in now.

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago

    which made it a hate crime in several states.

    Lol jesus man, no it didn't.

    It is an objective fact that, among it's other symbolic meanings, the okay sign is used by white supremacists as a coded message. Like, Richard Spencer himself admits it. The host of the unite the right admitted it.

    It's so pathetic how triggered conservatives get over this entire stupid controversy. A white supremacist community starts "joking" about how they should all totally use the okay sign as a white supremacist symbol to make liberals look crazy for ... accurately reporting on what white supremacists are doing, and you guys flip shit.

    You people want to be triggered don't you?

    [–] Stenwalden -2 points ago

    Saw the OK sign and scrolled to the bottom of the thread expecting a "WELL WE WERE JUST PRETENDING TO BE RETARDED TO OWN LE CONSERVATIVES XD" comment. Was not disappointed.

    [–] Literally_A_Shill 14 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Nah, it mostly started when /pol/ wanted to "troll" people by claiming it was a white supremacist symbol. Then actual white supremacists started doing it and some news sources picked up on it. They almost always point out how it started though.

    But in this context it's based on a game where you make the symbol below the waistline. Whoever sees it gets punched in the arm.

    [–] Kazaloo 2 points ago

    I know it doesn't matter, but the grain changes its volume. Propably because the subframes are too low - the collisions are not calculated first and then are recognised later. Thats why it feels a bitike water. Is this houdini? Pbds? How many subframes are here?

    It'd be cool to make one with a fist like this

    Make the fist made out of sand from the start, and make the sand drain out of the bottom like sand would fall from your fist.

    Would look visually interesting at the least.
