    ... why it is called an XX.
    Seems like they should have called the XX the Romeo since it looks just like the Juliet only bigger. And then called the Romeo the XX or maybe just X. I realize the Romeo came first and all but still.
    These are things that seem important when you are trying to kill the last 8 minutes at work.

    Well the story goes is Romeo and Juliet was the name of Jims favorite cigars, so the first two metals produced were named after the cigar

    Well, I guess Romeo and Juliet are two different blood lines, so naturally they would look different. XX might be Juliet's big brother. Half-X is the bastard cousin. Romeo 2 is Romeo 1's little bro. Penny is Juliet's child. So on and so fourth. I think I've already put too much thought into this. Lol.

    It always annoyed me that there is the XMetal XX and another non xm called the XX too.

    Coincidentally, Lucas, I use "Intro" by The XX as my soundtrack when I am stuck in the basement on the time trial bike in the trainer because of the weather in the winter. I have it looped because that particular piece matches my cadence exactly.
