If not for X, our understanding of electricity would likely be years behind
what we now enjoy. X also filed for more than 300 patents for inventions
like electromagnets, the radio, and the AC motor.
He just kind of became a little off-the-wall as he aged. X was known to
begin work each day at 3:00AM and continue until 11:00 PM.These habits
caused him to suffer a mental breakdown at age 25.
He then pulled himself together and continued the same regimen well
into old age, working as many as 38 years without a break in his rigorous

In Z, X plays a CIA officer hunting down terrorists, but in early 2001, the roles were reversed . . . in
real life.While filming a movie, X was visited by a group of FBI agents who delivered some
disturbing news. Evidently, some terror group namedY wanted to kidnap the famous actor.Their
plot was to shake up the world by capturing famous American actors (somebody wasn’t doing
their homework; Crowe was born in New Zealand and raised in Australia).
However, X didn’t take the threat very seriously.After all, most people hadn’t really heard ofY at
the time. But the Bureau took no chances. As X played the part of John Nash, federal agents were
on the set at all times. In fact, they followed him around for four years, escorting him to the
Oscars and the Golden Globes.They even kept him safe while he shot Master and Commander.
Fortunately for movie lovers everywhere, the plot never materialized, and X went on to star
in, well, nothing too exciting. Of course, if terrorists really had tried to capture X, chances are
pretty good their plot would’ve failed. After all, if there’s one thing X loves, it’s fighting.

In this modern age of domestic terrorism and
paranoia, sometimes all it takes is a single word to send
everyone into a panic. In the case of a 6 year old boy
from Massachusetts, that word was “gun.” During a
morning trip to Old Mill Pond Elementary, the
kindergartner pulled out a quarter-sized LEGO minifigure
rifle in front of the other students.The other
children began to panic, rousing the concern of the bus
driver, who immediately slammed on the brakes.
Although the boy obviously did not face any legal
repercussions, he was given detention and ordered to
write an official apology to the driver and all the children
on the bus.The mother of the boy declared the school
“overreacted” and that the toy did not pose a threat of
any kind.The bus driver, however, stated that several of
the children were still in shock and the ordeal was quite
The first reported procedure of this type was performed on

name of this surgical procedure, which involves the

This shocking photograph depicts Quang Duc, a monk who set himself on fire at a busy Saigon road
intersection in 1963. He died protesting the persecution of Buddhists by the SouthVietnamese
government.The regime had made life very difficult for Buddhists, banning them from flying their
traditional flag or practicing their beliefs and spiritual exercises.Thus the Buddhists decided that a
message had to be sent.
His protest didn’t go unnoticed.The image made headlines all over the globe within hours. In the
words of President John F. Kennedy: “No news picture in history has generated so much
emotion around the world as that one.”

Comic book heroes and villains die and come back to life often, but only one death was dictated
entirely by the fans. Robin has died and been replaced several times throughout the series, but in
1988, Jason “X”Todd’s fate was left in the hands of his supposed fans.
The “Death in the Family” storyline featured X finding his birth mother in Ethopia only to discover
that she had turned him over toY. Both ended up being tied up in a warehouse set to explode unless
Z could save them.The cliffhanger inspired DC Comics to set up a toll-free hotline and ask the
readers to call in and vote on whether or not X would make it out of the warehouse alive.
The fans voted 5,343 to 5,271 to put X down, and so he died in the next issue. However,Todd
returned in 2005′s ‘Under the Hood’ story arc as X in order to seek bloody revenge againstY.

X is an Anglicization of his real name, given to him in Genoa where he was born: Cristoforo. Other languages
have changed his name, too: he is Cristóbal in Spanish, for example. Even his Genoese name is not certain, as
historical documents about his origin are scarce.
He almost never got to make his “journey”. He tried to get support from many sources, including the King of
Portugal, but most European rulers thought he was a crackpot and didn’t pay much attention to him. He hung
around the Spanish court for years, hoping to convince Ferdinand and Isabella to finance his journey.
In fact, X had just given up and was headed to France when he got the news that his travel had finally been
