For now, I'll do one of each.

Thanks, @Dark Pulse !



DEATHSUBnn = "What a horrible night to have a curse.";

I remember this line from Isaac :-)



DEATHPROTIPnn = "Protip: Returning the microwaved hamster to its owner = bad idea.";

It goes back even further than that - it being lumped in with a bunch of other 8-bit stuff should point to that. :P




I wouldn't mind doing some more. Some definite string length limits would be good to know though - I dunno if a few of those are too long, if you're doing some kind of dynamic resizing, if it will actually depend on the screen resolution, etc.
