Hmm... pulling a trigger is a deliberate action, so it seems odd that the result of pulling a trigger is defined as not being related to the trigger. It's more like a land mine going off because someone stepped on it. Yes, the explosion is the result of the step, but the exposive device was planted out of view, and the person who triggers it doesn't intend to. My, the examples in this glossary entry are a bit violent, aren't they? Where's my copy of Deus Ex? -- DGJ - 12 Sep 2002
