Referring to the infamous staircase descent in chick-flick movies, in which the female lead, usually in slow motion, walks down the staircase, looking totally beautiful, or in mockery, totally ugly, and falls. Generally before a party or school dance. Mocked in several movies, and has been noted in television as well as real life. You know you want it. But you can't have it.
"Her descent was magnificent, and she looked beautiful."
"She had practiced, yet failed at her descent and fell."
"Haha I love the descent part of movies, especially if they fall."
"Remember descent the highest form of patriotic." sic
A) to come down from a very high place, such as while climbing a mountain or flying in an airplane

"We hit a rough patch of weather on our descent, but we should make it home safely"
"There will be heavy snowfall during the descent, so make sure you keep an eye on your partners"
"Shit man, I took 4 tabs and drank 2 bottles of Robo last night and now Im on the descent. Can you get me a puke pan and some pillows?"
"Contrary to popular belief, DISSENT is on the ASCENT."
A flight simulation game where your only objective is to blow up robots and reactors, then escape from the underground mines before the reactor melts down.
It's a mindless game, but pretty fun.
