How X are you?

This questionnaire tests you for your reactions towards the things listed (its incomplete).
1. Tortoise

4. Television viewing
5. Nude photo
6. Butterflies

In August 2003 The Wave Magazine presented these same questions to candidates in the local mayoral elections and reported their responses. One of the candidates, Tom Ammiano, recognized the test’s source by questions 2.
Another candidate, Angela Alioto, became agitated at the line of questioning, complaining “Let me ask you, John, how does this fit in to the bigger picture when you ask me about the tortoise and butterflies?” The interviewer’s reply was straight out of the source, “They’re just questions, Angela. In answer to your query, they’re written down for me. It’s a test, designed to provoke an emotional response. Shall we continue?”
Where do u find this? What does it determine?

Where would you find all this? 

The lower section of text gives these proportions:

  • the length of the outspread arms is equal to the height of a man
  • from the hairline to the bottom of the chin is one-tenth of the height of a man
  • from below the chin to the top of the head is one-eighth of the height of a man
  • from above the chest to the top of the head is one-sixth of the height of a man
  • from above the chest to the hairline is one-seventh of the height of a man.
  • the maximum width of the shoulders is a quarter of the height of a man.
  • from the breasts to the top of the head is a quarter of the height of a man.
  • the distance from the elbow to the tip of the hand is a quarter of the height of a man.
  • the distance from the elbow to the armpit is one-eighth of the height of a man.
  • the length of the hand is one-tenth of the height of a man.

It’s in the Name

Like most things even X follows a certain convention while naming their works. The general convention is [gender/race/defining characteristic] [optional twist/USP] [main action performed]  [number in series]. This order is followed most of the time, except when it isn’t. However the number almost always comes in the end. There is another naming convention followed which works by using horrible puns (which is more well known) but is actually followed for a small fraction of the works.

A common joke also says that your X name is [Name of First Pet] [Name of First Street you lived on] or [Name of favorite sweet] + [Name of first street you lived on] or even [Your last name] + [Name of first street you lived on].

What am I talking about?

Days of Our Lives

The Omphalos hypothesis argues that God created the world recently , but complete with signs of great age. It claims that in order for the world to be “functional”, God must have created the Earth with mountains and canyons, trees with growth rings, Adam and Eve with hair, fingernails, and navels, and that therefore no evidence that we can see of the presumed age of the earth and universe can be taken as reliable.
XYism is a parody religion created in response. It claims that the Universe was actually created XY, and any memories or evidence of events before that were created at the same time. The schism known as VYism claims that the universe hasn’t been created yet, and what we think is happening now is just false memories we’ll have once it exists. Of course, some might argue that both sides are heretics.
XY and VY please.

X’s law reformulated as “Usenet Rule #4”:
“Any off-topic mention of Y will cause the thread it is mentioned in to come to an irrelevant and off-topic end very soon; every thread on UseNet has a constantly-increasing probability to contain such a mention”.

Axis Powers Hetalia is a  popular anime showing an allegorical tale of the history of the world, especially during World War II, with anthropomorphizations of different countries and the various stereotypes associated with them.
In the show, Italy and X were briefly raised together as infants, before Grandpa Rome took Italy away to live with him for the Renaissance period. By the time Italy returned to his place of birth, the other children had become bullies to him.
Italy was claimed by Austria, on the behalf of X, after a period of war. The two children lived together in the same household, X harboring a crush on Italy, who he believed to be a girl (don’t ask its the Japs). However, life soon became uneasy. X  asked Italy to become a part of his empire, which he refused, remembering what had  happened to his grandfather. X left,  leaving  Austria, Hungary, and Italy behind.
Eventually, after the long period of war (almost three decades), X was believed to have died. In a scrapped strip, France broke the news to a teenage Italy that X was no more.

X was one of the leaders of the Indian National Congress and one of the founding fathers of the Republic of India. He is known to be a social leader of India who played an unparalleled role in the country’s struggle for independence and guided its integration. He took charge of the task to forge a united India from the British colonial provinces and more than five hundred self-governing princely states. Often known as the “Y of India“(because of Y’s similar role in the unification of his own country), he is also remembered as the “Patron Saint” of India’s civil servants for establishing modern all-India services.

Leftovers……

Many origins have been given for this dish.

Some say that an angered Chinese cook mixed the days rubbish in broth and presented it to San Francisco patrons who’d earned his ire only to find them coming back for it again and again.Some speak of a resourceful cook who whipped up a dish of leftover vegetables and meat to placate some drunken miners.

Another theory says that some Chinese cooks created this to feed railroad workers on the Pacific Railroad. Another of some Chinese ambassador who didn’t  find the American cuisine up to his tastes. Another theory says……you get the idea. Notice how they all involve leftovers?

Whatever the origin, this dish has become a prominent part of American Chinese cuisine, Filipino cuisine, Canadian Chinese cuisine, German Chinese cuisine, Indian Chinese cuisine, and Polynesian cuisine.
