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).

My doctor gives me 46 more years, tops...

I will make it to age 83 at my current pace, according to this clever life expectancy calculator. Buy me a card when I go.

I'm going to go soon. 75.6 years ... or another 42. Maybe it's time to drop a few pounds ...
