not able to understand what i’m saying eh??well,i expected this!the style ofwriting used above is one of many forms of LEET for I AM BACK AGAIN!!!……….LOL!!!!!

now,questions after a veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery loooooooooong time!here we go!

1) The Brahmin Indians simplified _____ by joining its four lines into a cross that looks like our modern plus sign. The Sungas would add a horizontal line on top of it, and the Kshatrapa and Pallava evolved the it to a point where speed of writing was a secondary concern. The Arabs’ ______ still had the early concept of the cross, but for the sake of efficiency, was made in one stroke by connecting the “western” end to the “northern” end; the “eastern” end was finished off with a curve. The Europeans dropped the finishing curve and gradually made it less cursive, ending up with a glyph very close to the original Brahmin cross.FITB!

2)The roots of this enigmatic phrase can be traced to the illegal lottery known as policy in late 19th century America. Numbers were drawn on a wheel of fortune, ranging from 1 to 78. A three-number entry was known as a “gig” and the ever-popular ‘X” bet became known as the “washerwoman’s gig” after it featured on the cover of Aunt Sally’s Policy Players’ Dream Book, published by H.J. Wehman of New York sometime in the 1880s. The stereotypicalplayer of the washerwoman’s gig was a poor black male.

Probably the earliest written reference to “X” is in The Secrets of the Great City by Edward Winslow Martin (aka James Dabney McCabe). The book is about the New York slums and it was published in 1869. Interestingly, however, Martin attributes the section on policy to “the New York correspondent of a provincial journal”, but does not name the writer. Nor does he date the article, except to say it was published “recently”

so,ID “X”.

3)Koreans express the sound of derisive laughter by “keke”. Other forms of laughter include “heehee”, “hoho”, “huhu”, “haha”, etc. In the written Korean language, hangul, it is written 캐캐, and in Internet discussions or chatting simply ㅋ repeated several times is often used. Since early versions of Warcraft did not support hangul, Korean players would use a romanized spelling—hence, “X” was born. It is often used in-game as an expression of exaltation or as a form of mockery. Commonly, it is associated with the Starcraft tactic of a Zerg rush, named after the unit for whom the tactic was created.The phrase “Zerg Rush “X”!” is sometimes used outside of the game to indicate any form of overwhelming or swarming force. “X” is also used as an evil laugh and is used by players using devious tactics and/or playing evil characters. “X” is commonly associated with laughs of devious characters in manga ,anime and video games, and has made its way through various translations.

now ID “X”.

4)A Canadian airline steward named Gaetan Dugas was referred to as “Patient 0” in a study by Dr.William Darrow of the Center for disease control. Many people consider Dugas to be responsible for “X”. This is considered inaccurate, as “X” happened long before Dugas began his career. This rumor may have started with Randy Shilts’ 1987 book ‘And the band played on’, but neither the book nor the movie state him to have been the first to acheive “X”. He was called “Patient Zero” because at least 40 of the 248 people known to be affected by him in 1983 had had sexual intercourse with him, or with someone who had sexual intercourse with him.

However, four years after the publication of Shilts’ book, Dr. Darrow repudiated his study, saying that its methods were flawed and claiming that Shilts had misrepresented its conclusions.

enough of the whole what’s “X”?

5)In medicine, the “X” test is a diagnostic test used before surgery to predict if surgery will find an abnormal direct pathway between the colon and urinary bladder or other type of problem of the same kind.

The test is very simple. The patient eats some “X”, then the patient’s wee is collected in a cup. If a “X” is found in the wee, the patient has a colovesical or related fistula.

The test is very accurate. In a series of 49 patients who underwent surgery for colovesical fistula due to sigmoid diverticultis, the “X” test gave a correct diagnosis more often than abdominopelvic computerized tomography, magnetic resonance tomography of the abdomen, cystogram, retrograde colonic enema, urethrocystoscopy, and colonoscopy. In a series of 20 patients in the USA, the “X” test was significantly more accurate than a CT. In these two series, respectively, sensitivity of the test was 94.6% and 100%. Because of the physical nature of the test, specificity of the test is necessarily 100%.

The test is very inexpensive. In the United States it has been reported to cost under 6 dollars and two orders of magnitude less than CT.

The test was first described in the English medical literature in 2001, by a group of urologists in germany. From 1994 to 1999, they gave 250 grams (8.8 oz) of “X” to a series of 17 patients, then examined the patients’ urine for two days. The test results were correct for all patients: 11 patients with fistulas did pass “X” in their urine and 6 patients without fistulas did not pass “X”.

lots of techie funda,now ID “X”.
