"They aren't numbers, it's an abbreviation"

"Oh, ok, that makes sense"

Roman means "a person from Rome." Every native of Rome today is a Roman. I bet you a whole bunch of them understand what L and XL mean in clothing sizes.

You do know that Rome still exists, right?

No Way +11

This can only mean the Republic has fallen.

So 10 50 vs 50

@JayTheDay So 10 50 vs 50

Not quite sure what you mean, XL in Roman numbers is 40.

@Not quite sure what you mean, XL in Roman numbers is 40.

Ah, sorry, I was reading it as "Extra Large" as in two words, so X and L.

@Pokketts Ah, sorry, I was reading it as "Extra Large" as in two words, so X and L.

Now you've made me wonder if people read it as "XL" or "extra large".

+14

Hmm

Why? We dont look at it confused at why the letter X is suddenly showing up before the letter L.

Cause a Roman wouldn't understand the concept of sizes vs numerical order. Romans were so dumb, lol, damn liberals.

Haha

I wonder what they would think a XXX movie is.

@I wonder what they would think a XXX movie is.

XXX would be 30, although I'm fairly sure they would use a seperate number or series of numbers

Then they would ask and be informed

Funny you should say that. I was 14 when I learned it stands for Extra Large.

I was _very_ confused.

Oh this is hilarious

If I see one more pun, I'll kill of my last braincells

Yeah You Are +8

I, for one, can't remember how to write 1, 1000, 51, 6 and 500 in Roman numerals.

I M LIVID

Consider their problem when presented with XXL.

It's bigger than XL.

It doesn't exist.

If it did exist, it would be 3X (XXX).
