There Are Apparently 8 Different Ways To Write The Letter 'X' That We Can Now All Fight About

@SMASEY/Twitter, @LadyBellatrix/Twitter

You know those little things you don't think about until somebody breaks them down and puts them on the internet, and then you find yourself at odds with everybody who does that menial task different from you?

Well, here we are, again, in a debate that might overpower "gif/jif".

Twitter user @SMASEY decided to ruin everybody's lives by posting a chart of eight potential ways to draw an X:

The major consensus was that people for the most part draw the Xs down, or number 7 and 8 on the chart:

The feeling of being super uncomfortable when one draws an X differently than you're used to doing harkens back to a feeling from Spring 2018, when the internet was incredibly confused about whether they were hearing the words "Laurel" or "Yanny".

Similarly, the phenomenon of the blue and black/ white and gold dress created a similar issue:

What Colour Is This Dress? (SOLVED with SCIENCE)

What makes these particular things so special is that regardless, the result ends up being the same. It is the same picture of a dress, it is the same soundbyte, and regardless which method you choose of the eight, it will always end up being an x, but humans are weirdly obsessive over things like this.

Which way do you draw an "X"?
