How are you numbering the answers there.

because I've got
1. Czech
X. France
2. Ireland

Why is france X and ireland 2?

Or perhaps because it's a common and widely used way of numbering things? At least in this part of the world.

o_O?

...you're numbering things "1., X., 2."?
...then you're living in a strange part of the world...

it's one times two, which, of course, gives the smallest prime number, you freaks.

Well, it's not exactly a numbering system, but it's used in gambling and when people bet on stuff, like soccer games. Therefore it's a very suitable way of numbering the answer options.

See this not very good picture

...it's still completely illogical...

...and in soccer, it's because the "X" is a draw, so it's now comparable, imho...

Well, when you look at it that way... I don't know. I'm not one to bet much on anything, so I don't know a thing about this stuff. The only things I DO know is that 1, X and 2 don't raise any confusion in me.

Perhaps I should think more.

perhaps france was once two, and now has been disqualified, due to lighting cigarettes in the non-smoking section?


I can't seem to think up a good signature.

Most numbering systems in the wirld go 1, 2, 3,, or a) b) c). I've never seen 1 x 2 before, it just doesn't make any senseto list answers that way.

No it's a wierd numbering thing .
It's probably some stupid guy from scandinavia who invented it...
Anyway, I changed to 1,2,3 now instead, so go to Broken Sword Zone and paricipate in our contest!

Let's agree that he was from Denmark, Norway or Iceland.

nothing exciting happens on these forums, we have to entertain ourselves by arguing over trivial things. Now who stole my left sock?

I would like a cookie too.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.
