A alternate term for "damn" that is used by many teenage boys on chats. The word eventually moved into the spoken vocabulary of such boys.

Similar to the word "shee," which is an alternate form of "shit."

is the abbreviated term or short for the word demons. Demons, or personal demons, can be used for someone's ongoing problems they face. It can be the result of anything that is negative. It can also apply to things; malfunctions of equipment, and items not functioning to it's normal use.
Someone who suffers from alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling addictions, would all be examples of DEMS.

"I have mad gambling dems because i spent all of my life's savings away."

DEMS in relation to things:

"My car's engine light keeps turning on, and my brakes suddenly aren't working," would suggest someone has car dems.

Shortened for deus ex machina, a term used to describe sudden plot twists in works of anime, movies, and other stories, normally involving a hero's fight against a villain, and favoring the hero, allowing him to win by otherwise unused methods within that fight.
DEM normally involves the hero getting beaten to a pulp until somehow ascends in power and uses that to destroy the villain in a matter of one or two hits.
