The dramaticized (but true) story of the ZOX of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University in Montreal.
~ by Dave Birch ~
I was in my second year as an undergraduate, Professor Alvin Post, during
one of his Design classes in that very room, had scribbled on the blackboard
the simple word "ZOX" over a complicated process diagram.
that he would explain exactly what a "zox" was later in the lecture,
we all faithfully copied it down into our notebooks. As the professor
explained the diagram, it became apparent that the "ZOX" was actually
a contorted "20 x"- and to this day I can still hear the suppressed
laughter mixed with the sound of 200 erasers rubbing.
