My two daughters, one 25 and the other 13, who grew up in Austin, know nothing of King's x. The 13 year-old says "time out" or "times," meaning roughly what King's x did. I don't know if King's x survives in rural areas in Texas, but it I don't think it is common in cities in Texas, and may be gone altogether. I have no info on question 2 and 3. --Jim McCulloch
