  • A History and Linguistics Lesson...Just in time for Xmas!

    For all the idiots like this guy:

    I'm sorry, forget X-M-A-S. Malcolm X? Yes. X replacing Christ? No.

    Hey dumbasses. "X" has been used as an abbreviation for Christ for, oh, about as long as there have been Christians.

    The Greek letter Chi, written "X" (also with "P", or Rho) represent the Ch and r sounds from the name.

    Get educated. Just where in the holy **** did you think the X came from?
