(telephone rings)
"Hello, this is the SPCD."
"The what?"
"The Society for Prevention of Cruelty towards Doomsayers."
"That is absolutely ridiculous. No one is cruel towards them."
"Have you ever wanted to torture them?"
"Well ... maybe."
"Tickle them with a red-hot poker?"
"Possibly."
"There you go, then. You're the sort we're trying to keep away from them. Why can't you be kinder towards a doomsayer anyway?"
"They're so negative."
"We are not! You're just saying that because you're jealous and because the SPCSRR pays you to be."
"The what?"
"The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty towards Sarcastic Ranters and Ravers."
"Now that's ridiculous. You wouldn't happen to be a member of them too?"
"Whatever gave you that idea? I haven't ranted and raved even once during this conversation. And certainly not in a sarcastic way."
"But you'd like to, wouldn't you?"
"Yes." Pause. "What gave it away?"
"You're being entirely too polite towards me. Now, come on. Give me some of that good ol' ranting and raving."
"If you insist..."
(sadly the rest has had to be censored -- but, according ot the SPCSRR, the use of sarcastic invective and hyperbole has never reached such exalted heights -- we now return you to your regular doomed programming)

Doomest Doom Of Dooms.

The company affords X funds to STO, same as all the other games they offer. STO is made in America, where the dev team is offered a health care package along with their employment. In a country with the most expensive health care system in the world. That consumes Y amount of the X allocated by the company for the operations of STO. This leaves Z for actual production costs. If the dev team lived in ANY other country then Y would be a substantially smaller amount, leaving Z that amount larger for the production of STO. And they could afford a few more coders to deal with the amount of code in the game. And literally everybody would be better off. But do you think the game would be relocated to Canada even?

Doom means apologies aren't required. Doom means bending over backwards is unnecessary (and therefore a minor reduction in chiropractors' business). Doom means that conforming is as useful as mandatory breathalyzer testing after eating food liberally sprinkled with garlic. Doom means that if you still have tastebuds left after eating the spiciest dish on the menu, you weren't trying hard enough. Doom means that every day is like April 15. Doom means that you aren't allowed to speak like Yoda; you have to speak like Jar-Jar Binks instead. Doom means that the monster under your bed is actually your younger brother sneaking peeks at your dirty magazine collection. Doom is everywhere.

Wow...

I'm gone for a couple of days and the DOOM THREAD almost slips into it's own doom.
(I found it on page ten!)

Things must be really looking up if nobody want to post here anymore.

It's the unholiday season for Doom. Invite all your unfriends. There will be unpresents galore. Even Q has threatened to be there.

lol ... I was actually trying to be funny like in Jimmy Kimmel's unfriending idea (where people have lots of online "friends" at sites like Twitter, but are they really friends? so why not just unfriend them all).

And don't forget: Unhappy New Year on Jan. 1, 2014.

I've got a to-doom list:

1. Ignore omens.
2. Ignore auguries.
3. Ignore negative tarot card readings.
4. Laugh when the crystal ball goes jet black.
5. Insist on failing.
6. Vote for the underdog (even if they have absolutely no chance of winning).
7. Drive too close to the edge of drop-offs.
8. Let parents and in-laws control your life long after you've reached adult independence. (this doesn't include those who are handicapped so much that they need help from others)
9. Enjoy rush hour.
10. Enjoy road rage.
11. Lose your temper ... but you aren't allowed to find it.
12. Lose your mind ... but you aren't allowed to find that either.
13. Believe in all conspiracy theories ... you can't just pick and choose.
14. Be one of the programmers that get criticized every time something goes wrong ... even if it isn't the part they themselves worked on.

(add more if you can think of any that I've missed here)

Breakfast in the STO doom-monger's cafe..

" So there's egg and bacon,
Egg sausage and bacon
Egg and doom
Egg, bacon and doom
Egg, bacon, sausage and doom
Doom, bacon, sausage and doom
Doom, egg, doom, doom, bacon and doom
Doom, sausage, doom, doom, doom, bacon, doom, tomato and doom
Doom, doom, doom, egg and doom
Doom, doom, doom, doom, doom, doom, baked beans, doom, doom, doom and doom..."
