    True enough, Shadowplay, but it's the same sort of error as pronouncing 'herbal' without the 'h' or 'paedophile' with a short 'e'. They're both clearly wrong, but hundreds of millions of people do those very things every day.

    I was taught you can use both, but IV is more common. The romans themselves used both.

    I believe I can resolve this easily.

    CivIIII.

    It's just... wrong. :lol:

    Spoiler :
    (Seriously, though, I've seen IIII on clocks as often as IV.)

    The problem I have is that it's not funny. It's just mundane.

    I remember reading somewhere that the reason for this was aesthetic and to visually balance out the VIII that's position is symmetrical to it.

    Now, see, there's nothing funny about this picture. To make it funny, you would need to add a caption that says "EPIC FAIL" on the bottom. Then, it would be funny.

    In other words, something is not simply made inherently funny by plastering "epic fail" on it.
