The Battle of Zela was a battle fought in 47 BC between Julius Caesar and Pharnaces
II of The Kingdom of Pontus. The battle took place in Zile, what is now a small hilltop
town in the Tokat province of northern Turkey. The Pontic army positioned itself near
the hilltop town of Zela, but as Caesar's men were entrenching their own camp on
nearby high ground the Pontic force suddenly attacked. This action was unexpected
as it defied logic to give up the solid position at Zela and to attack uphill. The assault
achieved momentary surprise and at first gained some ground amidst the confusion,
but the veteran Roman legionaries soon recovered and quickly organised a defensive
line. Caesar then went onto the counter-offensive and drove the Pontic army back
down the hill, where it broke into a complete rout.
After the battle, Caesar did something that is very well known even in the
present times. What did he do?

According to Guitarist Dave Murray, the name of X was inspired by
an old joke:
A wife had a baby, but it was born with only a head and no body.
'Don't worry,' says the doctor. 'Bring him back in five years time
and we'll probably have a body for him'. So five years go by, and
there's X, as his parents have called him, sitting on the
mantelpiece, when in walks his dad. 'Son,' he says, 'today's a very
special day. It's your fifth birthday and we've got a very special

The X Y was founded by Oscar and Evelyn Overton. Evelyn first decided to open a
business after making a X for her husband's employer in 1949. Evelyn opened a small X
shop in Detroit, Michigan, in the late 1950s, but later gave it up in order to raise her
two children. She continued to supply X to several local restaurants, however, through
a kitchen in her basement. In 1972, Oscar and Evelyn Overton moved Los Angeles where
they opened a wholesale _____ in which they produced X for local restaurants. The
company now operates 175 full-service dining restaurants: 165 under The X Y marquee,
13 under the Grand Lux Cafe marquee and one under the RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen
A fictional version of The X Y is used as a setting in the U.S. sitcom. The show's
portrayal of the restaurant, however, is not visually accurate to the real X Y. According
to the company, it "does not have any sort of arrangements with the show. The X Y is
really pleased to be featured in such a funny and wildly popular show“.
ID X Y.
X was established in April 1946 by Tadao Y, an engineer specializing in
fabrication technology. Tadao's first major product was the yubiwa
pipe, a finger ring that would hold a cigarette, allowing the wearer to
smoke the cigarette down to its nub while also leaving the wearer's
hands free. Japan was impoverished immediately following World War
II, so cigarettes were valuable, and the invention was a success.
After seeing the Z at the first Business Show in Ginza, Tokyo in
1949, Tadao and his younger brothers used their profits from the
yubiwa pipe to develop their own Z.

The X Y: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, is a literary/philosophical
book by the epistemologist Nassim Nicholas Taleb. The book focuses
on the extreme impact of certain kinds of rare and unpredictable
events (outliers) and humans' tendency to find simplistic explanations
for these events retrospectively.
This theory has since become known as the X Y theory that describes
an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often
inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of

The songs of Kalo Harin, with their folk touch and Dalit vigour, became hits. The songs
penned by N. P. Chandrasekharan were set in the manner of songs of Vattakkali and
Tholukali the traditional dance forms followed by the families of Kolothumpadam, the
native place of X. The music scored by K. Raghavan, the legend of the music field of
Malayalam gave them real folk attire. An audio album including these songs became
popular at that time.

._________ the circle is a problem proposed by ancient geometers. It is the
challenge of constructing a _______ with the same area as a given circle by using
only a finite number of steps with compass and straightedge. More abstractly and
more precisely, it may be taken to ask whether specified axioms of Euclidean
geometry concerning the existence of lines and circles entail the existence of such
In 1882, the task was proven to be impossible, as a consequence of the Lindemann–
Weierstrass theorem which proves that pi (p) is a transcendental, rather than an
algebraic irrational number; that is, it is not the root of any polynomial with
rational coefficients. It had been known for some decades before then that the
construction would be impossible if pi were transcendental, but pi was not proven
transcendental until 1882.
The expression "_______ the circle" is sometimes used as a metaphor for trying to
do the impossible.
