fov = Field Of View
fov is a variable used in the Quake III Arena engine as well as other engines based on this game. It sets the limits on how wide the angle (or field) of vision is. The bigger the angle, the more you can see on the east - west and north - south axis. (more on the east -west one).
Basically, the bigger the field of view, the more superangular and distorted the image is.
The default value for fov in Quake III Arena is 85 degrees. The command is "/cg_fov 120" If you set the angle to, say 120 degrees, the result is a cool superangular image. You do see more of your left, right, up and down sides but this comes at a cost: far objects are diminished, reducing precision when using one shot kill arsenal like the railgun.

Fear of Vagina. Most common in men who have never had sexual intercourse with a female or haven't in a long period of time. Symptoms include: Making excuses, often times obscure and unmerited to avoid sexual intercourse; Making out with girls at bars and not ever pursuing anything further; Claiming insanely high standards to friends or co-workers with no evidence or examples to cite; Almost immediately falling into the "friend zone" with females and being referred to as "like a brother to me" by said females; and finally: Getting oneself extremely intoxicated in every social setting so you can say things like "dude I was way too drunk last night to hit that."

No medicine has yet to be designed to cure FOV, except for maybe viagra. Common cures however may include lowering standards severely and "taking one for your own team," dating a virgin or someone significantly younger in age.

F.O.V. is often sounded out as FOV.
Matt is a decent looking heterosexual guy with a noteworthy job and financial stability but never seems to luck out in the sex department. He avoids sex talk around guy friends and has used every excuse in the book as to why he wouldn't ever hookup with specific women. He clearly has Fear of Vagina (F.O.V.) Oh and he's dangerously obsessed with sports.

Friend: "Yo Matt, that girl was hot, funny, down to earth and everything, what happened?"

Matt: "Dude, her left ear was bigger than her right ear, plus I was way too drunk when we were talking so I just ate a cheesesteak and passed out. Maybe I'll text her next week or something."

Friend to other Friend: "Matt won't text her man, he's got FOV."
