he bes"Ever been to a museum and been given a headset and player that speaks and plays music whenever you get next to an exhibit? This set of scripts and one prim makes that happen in Second Life or OpenSim. It's ideal for artists, exhibits, sim owners, and landowners anywhere. You can use it to tell the story of your world, to announce what a piece of art is about, give directions ("you are on the path to ..."), or anything else you dream up. You can play any length of music, spoken words, or chat to speech from my free text-to-wav file program, up to 43 minutes long, without using shared media. You can single play, or loop forever, too."

This is hard to research, but a tentative conclusion would be to praise the character revealed rather than the actions. I think it is important to know the child and situations, but it makes a certain amount of sense.

Germany Country Snapshot

Germany Country Snapshot | Thinking out loud | Scoop.it
A high-performance economy — the largest in Europe and fourth-largest in the world — makes Germany a major player in the European Union and global trade. Germany’s population of 81 million people offers export potential to growth-minded U.S. businesses, while those seeking suppliers will get top quality from the skilled workforce. 
Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Good explanations of export and import rules for Germany.  Warning to future expats: NO HORROR COMICS.   (sad face)   Of course, the "No Pornographic material" is also an issue.
