What do your parents think of Doomworld?

For those of you who live with your parents (still), what do they think of Doomworld?
I remember my Dad saw me on here a few months back when Danarchist had his old sig I HATE MYSELF AND I WANT TO DIE!!. It was a link to somewhere. Anyway, dear old Dad say it, and he said (and I quote): "What in the shit is this bullshit? What the hell kind of thing is that to say? You're rotting your brain out, son, by sitting around and looking at shit like this!"
I kinda just laughed it off.

Well, my dad hasn't really said much since he caught me looking at that gay-bondage-snuff-scat-horseporn.

...

I guess I should take his head out of the freezer and see if he's talking to me yet.

My mom hates all things Doom (except my level designing, because it's a creative skill or some shit), but my dad really thinks it's cool.

Heh. The advantages of having my own place.

My dad thought Doom was pretty cool when it came out. He's always been a computer geek like me(although he's just an internet junkie) so we bought a brand-spankin' new 486 DX100 so I could play it. Although there were times when he'd get on my case about it, like, "What are you doing on the computer? Have you been on all night? You have to be at school in thirty minutes! You better not be sleeping during class. Do I have to tell you what happens if you fail your classes one more time?"

Man, what a two-faced bastard.

My parents think I'm a nerd because of Doom and Doomworld. The fact I played sport twelve years for my school in Rugby, football and cricket seems oblivious to them.

There's a reason why I didn't sign up on DW before after I moved away from my parents :-)

My parents LOVE doom. :D It's so cool, caus I could be talking about a doom level, and my mother would go 'thats the one with that thing in the center, with the wires and stuff' and I'll be like, 'Cool'. :D Whenever I find another doom wad for them to play, they jump right on it. They played EVERY wad on my 2500 doom wad cd, and they want more. :D They also started to play other games like half-life and some quake, but they keep going back to doom when their done. :D And I have my own personal computer seprate from theirs, so I don't even have to worry about the computer being used up. :D I love my life. :D

[edit]And yes, they like doomworld too. Where else are they gonna get their next doom fix. ;)[/edit]

Lucky scum!
Anyway, why aren't your parents posting on this board if they seemingly are such hardcore doomers?

Heh, my parents are the same way. On Sunday evening, I'll be on Doomworld, and they'll come in and be like "You should be outside getting some fresh air with friends."

The fact that I went upstreet Friday night, had a baseball game Saturday morning, played football all of Saturday afternoon with my friends, went to a party Saturday night, and played a soccer game Sunday afternoon is totally ignored.

My dad used to exaggerate how long we spent on the computer, always saying that we spent the WHOLE day on it.
Yeah right.

Funny things to say/do if you get accused of being the next Eric or Dylan:

Change the Doom desktop icon to MYSCHOOL.WAD(works better if it's actually the name of your school)

"The kids at school say killing myself would be much more cost-efficient."

"Well, I really wouldn't be able to rack up the numbers unless I get the Plasma Cannon in the principal's office and then make my way to the Quad-Damage in the janitor's closet."

"It's a harmless release for my tension and angst. But if you'd rather I kept that bottled up..."

"You're right. I should get on out and socialize. I wonder what kinds of drugs my friends are using this week..."

Put on your parents' Phil Collins albums and start moshing to them.

Tell then you tried to talk to a priest, teacher, or counselor for a positive role model, but you couldn't find one who didn't want to have sex with you.

More to come...

...and one more for the road:
I HATE MYSELF AND I WANT TO DIE!!

Anyway, my parents don't even know I'm on these forums. And they wouldn't care anyway.

If they give you too hard a time about playing on the computer say, "Ok, I will go out, is that better? Now then, what's the most I should expect to pay for beer and cocaine?"

My mom said that so I went to my school, took a picture, and doomed it up. Doom sky, blood on walls, dead people, etc. They got pissed and banned me from the computer.

My parents honestly don't care. They trust me not to be a retard, social outcast, killer etc. Besides, doom(world) is a small part of my day.

Man, what a two-faced bastard


That wins my 'most retarded thing to say' award for today.

My parents gave up caring long ago, except to say "do you still run that Doom site" and me responding "well it mostly runs itself nowadays."

honestly my mom got me into doom. one day she said "hey check out this game" she played it for about a week before giving up. however were she left off it became my obsession. now she has changed and gets all christioan on my ass about ID being evil and spreading evil. she thinks doom corrupts the mind. honestly shes gone batty, she thinks dinosaurs and humans lived in the same time period, she thinks humans are the only life in the univers, she thinks it is evil if anything besides humans are intelligent( like AI or cumputers)

kind of strange cause she use to really be into science
