Renegade Tail Lights: A Tale of Two Xs

Renegade Tail Lights: A Tale of Two Xs
Written on October 4, 2016. Driving up Detroit’s Woodward Avenue on a showery Summer evening, a Jeep Renegade suddenly jammed on it ’ s brakes in battlefront of me. I could take the abrupt brake in stride, but I was surprised—even disturbed—to see two brake lights with a red background and two undimmed Xs staring at me. My immediate reaction was that the tail lights seemed to be flashing me a death sign—a cartoonish one, but a death sign however. I could alone associate these tail light adam with the ten on eyes used to “ playfully ” exemplify death ( and sometimes embarrassment or fuss ) in everything from Betty-Boop-Era cartoons, Anime characters, and even the logo of the recently released Suicide Squad movie .

Whether ghoulish or cartoonish,  somehow, I don ’ t think this was the purpose of the designers and engineers at Chrysler who came up with these tail lights .
I have no doubt that this design detail was given big circumstance. possibly these lights were supposed to be an expression of the edgy, rebellious “ Renegade ” brand, but this seems to me to be another design decision with unintended mean .
All of this raised a question in my mind : From egyptian Sun Gods to Christ, the unknown, the forbid, a multiplier, a generation, a movie rate, railroad crossings and now the xBox, a individual ten has had a very farseeing history across cultures as a symbol, a cross off or an identifier.

Two Xs has it’s own distinct meaning. Historians have established that in ancient Greece and Rome coins were placed over the eyes of the deceased when they were buried. This was a way to keep their eyes closed to prevent evil spirits from entering the consistency, and to pay Chiron, the ferryman who transported the bodies to the land of the dead .
Two x besides has a less spiritual, even virtual, history. During the plague the eyes of the dead needed to be sealed shut to prevent their pop open and possibly spreading the disease. Another possibility : To those viewing the deceased in repose, popping eyes must have been quite a agitate spy. so sewing their eyelids shut with an ten form sealed the distribute, so to speak .
so, how did two ten wind up over cartoon eyes ( sometimes with a hanging tongue or a bouquet of flowers ) to signify death ? This came about as another hardheaded and decidedly non-spiritual solution : Cartoonists found it a dear way to differentiate between sleeping characters and dead ones .
indeed do the two adam mean the Renegade has come to a dead catch ?
