  1. 1. 1. Released as a single in August 1973, X went straight to the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and reached number five on the UK singles chart. The song was also a #1 hit in both Canada and Australia for five weeks each and topped the charts in many countries throughout Europe and the rest of the world. The principal songwriter wrote in his biography that X is basically heroin and his attempt while detoxing in Switzerland to once and for all "say goodbye". Two music videos were shot to promote the song. The song garnered controversy when, in 2005, the German party CDU used the song for its election campaign for Angela Merkel, though the band who had performed the song hadn’t given them permission to do so.

A major reason for X leaving Nike was because Nike refused to donate to X's charities and Adidas was more than happy to do so. In 2005 Tennis magazine named X the 7th greatest male player—and 12th greatest player overall—for the period 1965 through 2005.

  37. 37. 20. X coined the word Y (the behavioral equivalent of a gene) to describe how Darwinian principles might be extended to explain the spread of ideas and cultural phenomena.

X hypothesised that people could view many cultural entities as capable of such replication, generally through exposure to humans, who have evolved as efficient (although not perfect) copiers of information and behaviour. Ys are not always copied perfectly, and might indeed become refined, combined or otherwise modified with other ideas, resulting in new memes, which may themselves prove more, or less, efficient replicators than their predecessors, thus providing a framework for a hypothesis of cultural evolution, analogous to the theory of biological evolution based on genes. Identify both X AND Y, the author The Selfish Gene.
