    TaeBo Master, a Deus Ex Machina is a plot contrivance in which a sudden addition of an improbable character or event resolves some previously difficult plot issues, or more literally it is the device (Machina) that lowers a god (Deus) character into a scene in classic Greek or Roman plays.

    What? I thought Deus Ex was just a video game?

    Don't believe Deus, he's already had a few posts on which he makes fun of people for not knowing what it means. And the game isn't called Deus Ex *Machina*.

    "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - for ever."
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    The other mistake I see quite often is Deux.

    A lot of people see the name and go:

    "Ewwwww Sex Machine! That's gross!"

    "Wait wait, ladies, don't run!"

    "<mace to Deus's face>"

    "Ow. My eyes hurteth exceedingly."

    " Deus Ex " - it is and not "just" - it;s excellent, one of the best games veer made still.
