The origin of the "__" sign has been variously
accounted for. Perhaps the most widely
accepted explanation is that it is the result of the
evolution of the Spanish and Mexican
scribal abbreviation "ps" for pesos. This theory,

In March 2006, he was rated the 11th richest man in the
world. Everyone above him on the list was at least ten years
older. He started his career by opening five companies from
1992-95. But most of his wealth came from buying
companies cheap when Russia was privatizing its state run
firms. He bought himself a majority stake in Sibneft, an oil
company, and later merged smaller companies to form
Rusal, the world’s second largest aluminium producer. In
1999, he was elected to his country’s parliament. He also
bought the UK’s second most expensive car registration
number – “VIP1” for a whopping £285,000.

X's annual shareholders' meetings take place in the Qwest
Center in Omaha, Nebraska & are routinely visited by 20,000
people. The 2007 meeting had an attendance of approximately
27,000. The meetings, nicknamed "Woodstock for Capitalists",
are considered Omaha's largest annual event along with the
baseball College World Series. Known for their humor and
lightheartedness, the meetings typically start with a movie made
for its shareholders. The 2004 movie featured Arnold
Schwarzenegger in the role of "The Warrenator" who travels
through time to stop X's President and Vice President from
saving the world from a "mega" corporation formed by
Microsoft-Starbucks-Wal-Mart. Schwarzenegger is later shown
arguing in a gym with It's President regarding Proposition 13.

The name ____ ______ comes from the cheap paper on
which the magazines were printed. Magazines printed on
better paper were called ‘glossies’ or ‘slicks’. In their first
decades, they were most often priced at ten cents per
magazine, while competing slicks were 25 cents apiece.
They were the successor to the penny dreadfuls, dime
novels, and short fiction magazines of the nineteenth
century. Although many respected writers wrote for
____, the magazines are best remembered for their lurid
and exploitative stories and sensational cover art.
He is said to represent the modern Indian; he is
an achiever with a positive attitude, a global
citizen but justifiably proud of his nation’s

When the Kaurava princes failed to defeat the
Panchala army, Drona sent Arjuna and his brothers
for the task. The five Pandavas attacked Panchala
without an army. Arjuna captured Drupada as
ordered. Drona took half of Drupada's kingdom, thus
becoming his equal. He forgave Drupada for his
misdeeds, but Drupada desired revenge. He
performed a yagna to have a son who would slay
Drona and a daughter who would marry Arjuna. His
wish was fulfilled and thus was born X, the slayer of
Drona, and Y, the consort of the Pandavas.
In X, twenty-sixth century setting, the player assumes the
role of the Master Chief, a cybernetically enhanced super-
soldier. Many game magazines have praised X as one of the
best and most important games of all time.
The game's popularity has led to labels such as "X clone" and
"X killer", applied respectively to games either similar to or
anticipated to be better than it. In addition, the game
inspired and was used in the fan-created Red vs. Blue video
series, which is credited as the "first big success" of
machinima - the technique of using real-time 3D engines,
often from video games, to create animated films.
A prequel to the game, was released on September 14, 2010.
