Do all Americans fail math (and English)?

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.
