John 'X' Scotus  was one of the leading Scholastic philosopher-theologians of the High Middle Ages. He wrote treatises on theology, grammar, logic, and metaphysics which were widely influential throughout Western Europe, earning him the papal accolade Doctor Subtilis (Subtle teacher). Many of his theories and methods were later rejected by Protestant scholars, who used the term 'X' in a pejorative sense to describe those who foolishly clung on to the outmoded doctrine. The word 'X' is now used to describe anyone who is dull-witted and it is used to describe someone who is incapable of learning.

Identify the term 'X'.

Various Indian holy books like Mahabharat, Puranas etc., relate that the 'Royal Vaids', named 'Ashwini Kumar brothers', the twins, who were medical advisers to Devas during Vedic times (10,000 years ago), first prepared this formulation for 'X' Rishi at his Ashram on Dhosi Hill near Narnaul, Haryana, India, and hence the formulation is named after 'X'. The first historically documented formula for this appears in Charaka Samhita, the ancient Ayurvedic treatise. What is the name of this formulation?

'X' was originally developed as an Indian folk music instrument. It is important for religious purposes and music in India. 'X' was popular in the Badagutittū about fifty years ago. However, prior to this it derived from Indian folk music and was used for religious purposes. 'X' is traditionally made from a dried bottle gourd. Often, the neck of the gourd is carved for aesthetic reasons. On the other end, two reed or bamboo pipes are connected. These are known as the jivala. One of the pipes has seven holes and plays the melody; the other pipe is for drone. The jivala is fitted to the gourd with beeswax, which can be adjusted for pitch modification. A Shehnai is thought to be developed by improving upon 'X'. 'X'?

This particular person was the hero of Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster and they created 'X' based on him.

Id 'x'. There is also a funda you can crack from the picture, that is used even today although its pretty unorthodox. Put Funda.

Sodium thiopental: is an ultra-short acting barbiturate, often used for anesthesia induction and for medically induced coma. The typical anesthesia induction dose is 3–5 mg/kg. Loss of consciousness is induced within 30–45 seconds at the typical dose, while a 5 gram dose 14 times the normal dose is likely to induce unconsciousness in 10 seconds.

Pancuronium bromide (Trade name: Pavulon): This is a non-depolarizing muscle relaxant (a paralytic agent) that blocks the action of acetylcholine at the motor end-plate of the neuromuscular junction. Binding of acetylcholine to receptors on the end-plate causes depolarization and contraction of the muscle fiber; non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents like pancuronium stop this binding from taking place.

Potassium Chloride: The usual intravenous dose is 10-20 mEq per hour and it is given slowly since it takes time for the electrolyte to equilibrate into the cells. When used in state-sanctioned lethal injection, bolus potassium injection affects the electrical conduction of heart muscle. Elevated potassium, or hyperkalemia, causes the resting electrical potential of the heart muscle cells to be lower than normal (more positive). Without a negative resting potential, cardiac cells cannot generate impulses that lead to contraction.

Typically used ingredients of what?

'X's locale originally New York City was changed to a fictional city which was originally going to be called 'Civic City'. The name was then changed to 'Capital City', and then 'Coast City'. When 'Y' flipped through the New York City phone book and spotted the name ''Z' Jewelers' he decided to call it 'Z' city. 'Z' had long been a well-known nickname for New York City even prior to 'X's introduction, which explains why "'Z' Jewelers" and many other businesses in New York City have the word 'Z' in them. The nickname was popularized in the nineteenth century, having been first attached to New York by Washington Irving in the November 11, 1807 edition of his Salmagundi, a periodical which lampooned New York culture and politics. Irving took the name from the village of 'Z', Nottinghamshire, England, a place that, according to folklore, was inhabited by fools. The village's name derives from Old English and it literally means "haven for goats".

'X' & 'Z'?
