Tbh, i always thought that Aktungs name was pronounced “Aktung-bee” not “Aktung-baby” lol. I was pretty surprised

Only by default; on joiining , I had originally intended 'AchtungBaby', the German command for 'attention' and a nod to one of my favorite albums. However the profile lettering-space for avatar names wouldn't accommodate that, so I adapted somewhat...proof that I'm occasionally an accommodating fellow! It never ocurred to me that BBY would go misunderstood by Skybird or El Whacko...in the sense that BBQ generally means 'Bar-B-Que' in 'Merikanese! My humble apologies for any linguistic misconstrual.
