X and Y were once at a party when X said, “I have written a piece. “I’m sure it’s too hard for you,” but Y replied, “Whatever you’ve written, I’ll play it with ease!” Y started and his fingers were simply flying until he finally arrived at the end of the piece, where both his hands were out at the ends of the keyboard and there was just one middle note that he couldn’t reach. “This piece is impossible!” Y cried out loudly. “I’ve only ten fingers as everyone knows!” But X just smiled as he played the same passage and leaned down to play the last note with his nose!

X is known to be famous for his tall tales. In his “Surprising Adventures“, he is known to have related an account of his first travels, where due to a storm he ended up at Ceylon, where he combated and conquered two opponents and then returned to Holland. In another incident,he lost his horse, and found himself a wolf to draw his sledge. Another tale of his involves shooting a stag with cherry-stones and also killing a bear. On being attacked by a wolf, he turned it inside out. Another tale includes him being made a POW, and sold for a slave, during which he kept the Sultan’s bees, which were attacked by two bears and hence lost one of his bees while also losing a silver hatchet, which he threw at the bears, rebounded and flew up to the moon. He supposedly brought it back by an ingenious invention and fell to the earth on his return, and helped himself out of a pit. Many more are of his “TRUE STORIES” are recorded in his adventures. ID X. And being a great fan of House M.D., extra points for ID-ing one medical condition named after X.

While examining, one can find that at position 768, a striking feature is observed. It is so peculiar that it has a probability of 0.08%. It is known as the X point after Dr. X. X once claimed that if he had to recite the digits, he would name them accurately to this point and “and so on“. His double meaning statement is not so in reality. What am I talking about. Put Funda.
