God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

Harry Potter and the Buyer of Tickets

I picked up my tickets to the 7 p.m. showing of Harry Potter tonight.

When did it get to be $7.50 for a ticket to the movies? Yikes. It felt like I was at a gas station or something.

In any case, back later. Chick-Fil-A first, then the movie, which is something like 9 hours long, then home!

Pax, Securitas
