comment Is there more than one way to pronounce “knee” in Chinese?
Most native speakers pronounce it as qigai. But in an exam like college entrance exam, usually there is a question for phonetic symbols. And qigai is considered incorrect here. Also in any serious programme in TV or radio, professional broadcasters pronounce it as xigai.

@MikeManilone Yes, this literal translation also works. But it seems few people use this one. Usually in a dubbed foreign movie.

comment Can I use 我的腿累了 for “My legs are tired”?
No, it's not said often in oral. Though the syntax and meaning are OK, we do not say like that usually. Consider 我腿没劲儿了.

The one I said most is "随你便".
