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).

Why I should lose Battle Death Penalty

Inspired by Rose.

(1) I forgot about halfway through that we were even arguing the death penalty. I launched, for some inexplicable reason, into a defense of non-dairy creamers.

(2) I'm dumb as a bag of hammers.

(3) I'm not remotely cute. I look like my face caught on fire and someone tried to put it out with an ax.
