http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deimos_(moon) OMG: "It is named after Deimos, a figure representing dread in Greek Mythology." C'mon, Mars was really the God of War... His moons really show it. Fear&Dread????

"Phobos and Deimos ("fear" and "dread")" That's really awesome, actually. C++/Java/Python and the like should PHear us :) So does that make one of the Deimos maintainers Judge Dredd?
