Dave Birch sent me an interesting story about the word ZOX at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, McGill University in Montreal, Canada.

I asked my father where Canada is. He told me that Canada is so far away that a plane ride from Malaysia would take so long such that it would probably make me throw a series of tantrum on the way (hmm... I thought he had forgotten the Europe trip).

Anyway, Dave's email is reproduced below:-

Talk about your coincidences... Just so you know, the word
"ZOX" was adopted as a slogan by the Mechanical Engineering
students of McGill University in Montreal, after a misunderstood
'20x' in an equation presented in a design class.
