Creating dangling objects with spline dynamics

A little known part of the Dynamics Engine in CINEMA 4D is something called Spline Dynamics. One of the reasons that it's so little known is that it's not really part of the Dynamics Engine, it's actually part of the Hair Engine in CINEMA 4D. But you can use it for creating some really cool dynamic effects. I'm going to draw a Spline in the scene. So let's middle mouse-click to get to one of the orthographic views. I'll do this in the front view. Let's draw a Spline. I'm going to go to the B-Spline, and I want my first point to hit exactly on the center of the world.

So I'll turn my snapping on, and I'll enable Snapping first by making the view active, and then click and hold on the Icon. What I want to do is snap it to the work plane. So now when I go in here and I click, I know that I'm just clicking exactly on 0, and that made my first point. Now I can go out here and I'll click another one here, and I'll click another point here, and I th...
