1. “Out of the corner of my eye, I had seen the men start the X up. I swung my camera and shot the scene. That is how the picture was taken, and when you take a picture like that, you don’t come away saying you got a great shot. You don’t know”.
Give X.
ID and put funda.

2. During World War II, “pinup” girls were painted onto the sides of WWII planes and bombers. This gave rise to a term called X to denote those pinup girls.
Give X.

And, avoid googling 😛

That the first two letters of this popular blogging term have an expansion is little known. Uniqueness for every account is what this feature aims at. Recently, the author of ma.tt , a popular blog, claimed that 20 billion images were being served up by users everyday and the service is becoming increasingly popular, irrespective of the user’s bandwidth.The service used to be at a cost previously, though its acquisition by company Y has made it completely free.

Gimme term, expand its first two letters and Y.

Goyahkla (X) was born to the Bedonkohe band of the Apache, near Turkey Creek, a tributary of the Gila River in the modern-day state of New Mexico, then part of Mexico, but which his family considered Bedonkohe land. His grandfather (Mako) had been chief of the Bedonkohe Apache. He had three brothers and four sisters.

X (June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909) was a prominent Native American leader and medicine man of the Chiricahua Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States and their expansion into Apache tribal lands for several decades during the Apache Wars.

The 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment’s motto and slogan was named after him.

In 1940, the night before their first mass jump, U.S. paratroopers at Fort Benning watched the 1939 film X, in which the actor playing X yells his name as he leaps from a high cliff into a river, depicting a real-life escape X successfully attempted in which he jumped off Medicine Bluff at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, into the Medicine Creek with his Cadillac horse. Private Aubrey Eberhardt announced he would shout the name when he jumped from the airplane to prove he was not scared. The trend has since caught on elsewhere, becoming widely associated with any sort of high jump in popular culture.

This unit was the first parachute battalion of the United States Army.

pretty easy after the jumping part…X ?

___________ ____________ is an expression that was originally applied to the movie depiction of stagecoaches and wagons in the Wild West, in danger of being robbed or attacked. An employee or passenger would carry an X to provide an armed response in case of threat to cargo or passengers. More recently, it’s been applied to the contest between a group of friends to determine who ________ __________. It is also used to mean giving actual or figurative support or aid to someone in a situation or project, ie. to “Watch their back”.

FitB and ID X. X is also the second blank.

This show ran on CBS from Sep 14, 1968 to Jan 4, 1969. Only 17 episodes were produced. It had an exceptionally large cast of 23 characters. Another twist in the show is that it’s primarily based on the antagonists and not the protagonists.
Some people believe that it was inspired by the 1965 film, The Great Race. The leading lady of this show took on the appearance of Maggie DuBois, played by Natalie Wood. The main antagonist had much in common with Jack Lemmon’s portrayal of Professor Fate.

The wide and varied cast featured cavemen, a vampire, a Frankenstein-esque monster, a scientist, an air ace, a sergeant, a private, midgets, a hillbilly, a bear, a lumberjack and a beaver.

The leading lady went on to have her own show in 1969. The lead antagonists also starred in a spin off show (albeit their characters were a bit modified).

Id this iconic show.
