Whenever I hear Americans say “wow that was ten ex better than last time”, I go “what the fuck?”
You do NOT say ten ex two equals twenty. Yes it might be written 10 x 2 = 20, but the x is pronounced “TIMES!” Eg, ten times two equals twenty. ARGH!
Which sounds more retarded:
A) Your TV is two ex larger than mine.
B) Your TV is two times larger than mine.
A! A is for America! FUCK YEAH!
Or better yet, how about Americans learn to use the word “twice”. Ie, “Your TV is twice as large as mine.” What a revelation that would be.
