Child theme of twentyeleven
Hi im trying to make this bit of jQuery work on my page, mainly to understand how to get jQuery working in a WordPress child theme.
So far I have come across nothing but brick walls after trying several thousand different combinations of the wp-enqueue-script.

I am running around n circles not knowing wether i`m just getting one bit of code wrong, a backslash here or a brace there??
Here is the script: http://pastebin.com/mh6dN77b

The only other thing i can think of is that some CSS rule is overwriting the script. Whatever it is i am blind to it.
Please help. I never ran into any of this when dropping jQuery into static sites. Just want to understand how WP implements jQuery and to understand best practice going forward
