This is a line from a poem by Yeats, called The Second Coming. "Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the center cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand. The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert A shape with lion body and the head of a man, A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun, Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds. The darkness drops again; but now I know That twenty centuries of stony sleep Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? " This is a disturbing poem about the end of the world. The line that you are asking about, "the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned," evokes the image of bloody water flooding over innocent people and drowning them. You might use this quote if some particularly horrible situation has just begun - war or massacre, for example.

DIM stands for declaration in memory. the words DIM is used todeclare a variable. Yes Correct, I used to declare variable. I think it means Dimension, Dimension Of the memory… location The original Basic language did not require or have a typedefinition. All variables were numeric with no distinction betweeninteger and real/float. Assigning space for a variable was easy,they were all the same type and size. Some Basic implementations, using variable name modification, lateradded character variables by a dollar sign appended (varname$) andan integer type with a percent sign (varname%) leaving theunsuffixed version as it originally was. You were allowed to haveall three versions of a name in play at the same time so Basicstill had no type declarations. For an array, you needed to tell Basic how much space to allocatefor the array. Some of the more used languages at that time (e.g.fortran) used a"Dimension" keyword for this and Basic similarlyused a shorter DIM statement. Being that the designers of VB were implementing a version of Basicand they did need a type declaration, I would guess they decided touse the closest thing available: A DIM statement.

Dim is used to declare a variable, such as: Dim x as integer It is comparable to var x:int in action script. Dim is a short form for dimension. Dim can also be like say…ing "Let x = 1". Except you can declare the variable as anything it allows.
It references the socialist democrat party in Imperial Germany's anti-war sentiment against Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Josef's government's ultimatum on Serbia. The ultima…tum was an excuse used by the Austro-Hungarians to declare war on Serbia for what was believed to be their willful assistance in the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sofie. And German Kaiser (emperor) Wilhelm II had told the Austro-Hungarians that Germany would back Austria-Hungary regardless - the so-called, blank check. Keep in mind no party in Imperial Germany had any political power of any sort at that time. The ultimatum was accepted by the Serbs on all conditions but one. The response by the Serbs was rejected and Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. The Serbs asked Russia for help and a series of treaties kicked in which started WW1. The arguments continue to this day over who was ultimately responsible for starting WW1. It's very complicated and perhaps would have happened without that assassination. We will never know.
Diminuendo which means gradually getting quieter.

A diminished triad chord ( Play (help·info)) is a triad consisting of a minor third and a diminished fifth above the root - if built on C, a diminished chord would have a C, …an E♭ and a G♭. It resembles a minor triad with a lowered (flattened) fifth. In the common practice period, the diminished chord is considered dissonant, or unstable. It lacks tonal center or drive because the diminished fifth symmetrically divides the octave. A diminished chord occurs in a major scale only on the seventh scale degree; in the key of C, this is a B diminished chord (B, D, F). This also occurs in the seventh chord built on the fifth note; in C, this is G dominant seventh (G, B, D, F). In a twelve-tone equal tempered tuning, a diminished chord has 3 semitones between the third and fifth, 3 between the root and third, and 6 between the root and fifth. It is represented by the integer notation 0, 3, 6. In most sheet music books, Cdim or C° denotes a diminished seventh chord (a four note chord) with root C, and Cm-5 or Cmb5 denotes a diminished triad with root C. Howevever, in some modern jazz books and some music theory literature, Cdim or C° denotes a diminished triad, while Cdim7 or C°7 denotes a diminished seventh chord.
Really it could be any number of reasons. From the lens being dirty, damaged wiring, alternator failing, or battery failing.
