  1. Today sucked! I woke up and had a coffee and some cereal. Then I had a shower and I put some clothes on and I went to work at the office. I typed up some reports but the printer ran out of paper! Can you believe this! And so I filled up the printer with paper and then the paper jammed when I tried to print again. So I had to open up the printer and fix the paper jam issue. It worked ok but then I realised that the printer ran out of ink and there was none in the office. All of my colleagues were out for lunch as well so I had to run to the shop before it closed and I ended up tripping and grazing my knee and I did not have any tissues so I had to let it bleed all over my new jeans. I managed to reach the shop in time but they only had red ink cartridges available. So I had no choice but to print my reports in red ink. How embarassing! Then I had to walk home as my bus was cancelled, and it was raining. When I got home my cat had vomitted all over my television. So I had to clean it up. I then had some beans on toast for dinner as I was not very hungry after this pitiful day. Then I decided to play Doom2 map04 - which I think is a very good map, but I decided to play it with one hand only for an extra challenge - I am so crazy!! Afterwards I watched some Youtube videos and now I am about to go to bed. Thanks for listening Doomworld.

  4. Is it just me with the more I learn about the upcoming 2016 Doom, the less I care about it? Does anybody else have this going on mentally with them? It's as I have this "Classic Doom Forever" thing going on in my head.

    It doesn't hurt that the comments on social media for the official Doom's pages makes my brain numb from the legions of very likely new people to the franchise and/or from Brutal Doom.

    It just pains me mentally that I really don't care much for the upcoming game here yet I love the classics.

      It's not possible any more to create another Doom (the original Doom, I mean). You can't be taken by surprise twice, no matter how good they make it or how groundbreaking the engine is, or whatever the storyline is. The devs can't help that. They only make what they think people want in a modern Doom game. So sorry to be blunt, but if you're not pumped, it's your own fault and there's nothing that you can pin on brutal doom or its fans or the changing times.

  5. The other day I took my friend to get some medication from a mental health facility. The negative energy was immense, I could feel it instantly; this was very unexpected and I've never experienced it before. All the misery of the people in there was present and I almost tore the walls down (metaphorically, of course!). My goodness, I've never been so tense so instantly before. I started to arrange myself in a yoga position to deal with the stress, amusingly. When it was time to go, all of it disappeared in a microsecond when we left the building. This was a profound experience and seems to suggest that emotions, whatever they are made of, can be sensed by others because they are not situated strictly within the neural network of the brain. I hope scientific studies of this in the future reveal whether or not this has any truth to it. Have any of you ever experienced this? I believe it's related to empathy.

      Humans are swirling masses of elementary particles that are so complex that they are able contemplate the fact that they are alive. So let's put humans at the top of the totem pole, in terms of consciousness, at least far as Earth is concerned. Non-human primates are also conscious, although clearly less so than humans. Dogs, even less so. Rats, even less so. Bacteria, even less so. To me there is no arbitrary line where it stops; I do not believe this ever goes down to zero, because if elementary particles had a zero-level consciousness, it would seem silly to imagine putting enough of them together in a very particular order until bam, you have consciousness.

      That's like arguing, "I have a microwave. It is the best in the world at nuking food. That model over there is smaller and not able to nuke as much food. Therefore, if you continue down the line, even the smallest particles are able to microwave food to some degree. The entire universe is made up of tiny microwaves swirling around and converging to form larger microwaves."

  7. Last night, up till 10pm watching music videos on YouTube.

    Go to bed, wife locks doors and joins me shortly after returning from the King of Prussia Mall. She came home in her friends car.

    Forgot to change the alarm so I wake up at 3:30am, an hour earlier than intended.

    Walk the dog at 3:30am, observe my car still in front of house. Observe nothing unusual. Very quiet Sunday morning.

    Return home at 4am, car still parked in front of house.

    Feed dog, eat a banana, observe car keys sitting on kitchen counter.

    Go up stairs to bed, nap for an hour because I don't have work until 6:00am (didn't lock front door, didn't think id need to for only an hour -- and after walking up and down the neighborhood without seeing anything suspicious,)

    Wake up at 5:00, brush my teeth, change clothes, put on deodorant, come down stairs, look at phone for a few minutes to kill some time, then go to kitchen.

    Can't find keys.

    Retrace steps around the house, thinking if I moved the keys to a location where they'd be easier to notice for about 15 minutes, its now 5:50am

    Look out the window -- CAR IS MISSING.

    Call police. Officer on the way.

    Call work, tell them I cant come in, car is stolen, work uniform in the car.

    Officer arrives at 6:10am gets some information. Asks if we were drunk last night, if the car could possibly have been repossessed, if we have any friends who might have believed it was okay to borrow, if there's something of value in the car, if we have enemies (crazy ex girlfriend, crazy relatives) that might want to get revenge for something, but we answered no to all the questions.

    My wife and I are the only ones who live in the house. We haven't had any guests at the house for weeks, we don't have any enemies (afaik) that would want to do something to us, our crazy schizophrenic next door neighbor doesn't drive and has been in the hospital for the past five days. And my car isn't really worth anything or has anything of value in it.

    The crazy thing is that someone entered my house WHILE I was in the house, with my wife and my dog. I don't know how they got in without alerting my dog, or me, or anyone. The keys were not in a very obvious place, I don't think, at least not more obvious than other things such as an iPad that was sitting on the living room couch, a Nintendo Wii, a bluray player, expensive makeup my wife came home with, an engagement ring that was in the bathroom(!!)

    I don't know who could have done it. I honestly dont have any friends who know me so personally to know my morning routine, so I can only imagine it was some stranger stalker in the neighborhood who saw an opportunity (not even a good opportunity either, we were all in the house!) couldn't find anything else out of place or unusual with the house. This person was really inconspicuous for someone who would commit such a risky crime for a relatively little reward.

    I am however, relieved no one was hurt and other than my missing car, nothing was damaged or destroyed.

    I know statistically that most people that steal (or get caught stealing) vehicles often take them for a joy ride and dump them off somewhere else usually pretty far away and that most people who do often get away with it. Most of them usually aren't even recovered. The officer said this is a very strange and unusual case that we don't know anyone or can suspect anyone who would have done it, to freely enter our house, take the keys and leave with the car. Its a super ballsy thing to do.

    If anyone has had any experience with having a stolen car, or has any advice they heard from someone who had their car stolen, I could really use it. At the moment im changing the locks on all my doors and waiting to get a call from the police to tell me they found it.

  16. I have been for a long time looking for online friends that are die hard Doom fans. I know I am 19, but Doom has been my everything since I build a DOS PC when I was 12.

      I liked how the entire film was shot in POV. It really immersed the viewer in the story. But I did find one plot hole: I saw that the main character died at least once. How did he keep fighting? Was it someone else?

  17. Hi all, I am starting medication for ADHD this week, most likely Strattera. I have struggled all my life with severe anxiety, racing speech, racing thoughts, inability to focus or concentrate, outbursts of energy with accompanying weird/immature behaviour, etc etc.

    Well now it's been given a label, and I'm glad of that, because it has helped me to make sense of a lot of things. Labels can be extremely helpful at times.

    In the past I've been variously diagnosed with depression, dysthymia, general anxiety disorder, attachment disorder and so on. But none of it seemed realistic: I had no reason to be any of these things, and when I started treatment for them, they tended to clear up straight away (except for anxiety, which has been severe and lifelong).

    My executive functioning (how my brain works) is impaired to a level normally seen in people with brain damage.

    I've been told that ADHD medication will clear up much of my anxiety, make me feel comfortable in my own skin and massively improve my concentration, confidence, productivity and ability to hold down relationships. It could reduce my cognitive impairment by such a degree that I will no longer even be classed as impaired (quite an improvement from "brain damaged"). I've also been told the improvements usually start from day one.

    Unfortunately, I am dreading the potential side effects. In fairness, people who abuse it, which I won't, tend to get the really bad ones. My therapist is convinced I won't have any, or they won't be severe. I guess this is anxiety's last throw of the dice, hoping to scare me off before I take a medication that will destroy its hold on me.

    So on Thursday morning I will take my Strattera, and it will either help me to realise my dreams, or it won't.

    Wish me luck.

  20. my landline is apparently a magnet for phone calls since the past month. lately, I've been getting a lot of calls on my home phone. usually, I end up with no message on the phone, most likely due to some dummy getting the wrong number. this is fine, mistakes happen. but what I've also been frequently getting is something even more interesting, and rather catastrophic to think about had I answered the phone that time. that's right, I'm talking about phone scams, the ones where someone is demanding money over the phone from my paycheck, or something among those lines. and I seem to get them once or twice a week that it's getting ridiculous.

    the most recent one happened just yesterday. around the morning time where I live, I got a message, apparently from New York of all places. so I played the message and I was quite shocked at what I was hearing. someone had called my number, claiming to be from the IRS and saying some shit about having a lawsuit filed against me and an arrest warrant. I figured it was a scam since I really don't do anything wrong (plus I had already payed for my taxes last weekend). I had a gut feeling that the IRS doesn't directly call random peoples' phone numbers. I decided to Google this particular scam, and I found out that it seems to be targeting others in the states as well. so I showed this to my father and he called the police about the message we got. my dad knows when something's a scam anyways, since all these people want to do is take money out of our pockets.

    I fucking wonder how these crooks could come up with this sort of sophisticated scheme of masquerading as IRS agents and I hope I'm not the only one who is ending up receiving these messages. I also am wondering if I should disconnect my landline, given how I am so tired of people constantly calling my home phone number.

      It's not sophisticated and they didn't come up with it. I get these calls on my cell all the time. You're on your own with this one. The cops can't do anything and the IRS or Microsoft or whoever they claim to be won't care. Mostly I just fuck around with them for a few minutes to piss them off, then when they catch on that they've been double-duped they hang up.

  23. I think it came out 03 to 04, and it was an action movie with some sort of bad guy gangsters chase the guy and girl type thing. One scene had the black boss of a gang shoot an Italian mobster in the head when he was on the floor (from being riddled with bullets just prior) and you could see his toupee jump. Another scene in (I'm pretty sure) the same movie had one of the members of the black gang flirting with a girl while pointing a gun at her and sipping from a tea cup. The boss said his name in the way you do when something is acting completely fucking ridiculous, and his name was along the lines of Waboo or something like that. No one is probably going to know what I'm talking about but I feel it was worth a shot asking anyway.
