X means 10 in roman numerals, VII means 7 in roman numerals.

x in algebraic terms can be used to represent a certain value or number, which was how OP used it in the title, the joke here is that X is also 10 in roman numerals, hence "Did not take X (10) seconds, more like VII (7) seconds

That, I believe, actually originated in Rome, as soldiers were payed in salt.

I'm pretty sure they weren't payed in salt. They got food, positions, and a nice plot of land after their long service in the military. And, of course, pensions, paid in denarii.

Salt may have been rare, but they sure as hell weren't making coins out of it.

You DARE disrespect the almighty doge?!?!?   
   
You must now pay a sacrifice to the Divine Shibe, and either kill your first born in his name, or commit suicide.   
   
If you do neither, you shall face a fate worse than death.

Except the actual yield of salt would be very very low, and for any real profit would require a large vat

But see the thing is, salt was so valuable because it prevented food spoilage. As far as I'm aware, sperm doesn't have that same effect (Also, I don't know about you but I'd rather not even try to be honest)

There is a phrase that goes "he's not worth his salt" or something like that. Its something about babies being placed in salt after they were born because it had certain medicinal perks. If someone isn't worth their salt, its like saying they were not successful I think.

For those who want to know more,
In modern times, there are nomads in Ethiopia that still use salt as money. This practice probably originated from the times of Genghis Khan, duringh which salt was pressed with the image of Genghis Khan and used as coins.

you're incorrect about the second half of your statement as the romans used salt to pay some of their soldiers, and they predate the genghis' khanate

The use of salt as money is from Ghana, who traded gold for salt simply because salt was much more useful than gold.
