    Worst Thing Ever

    Everytime I see that screen, I know it's time to bury my computer. Because, no matter what you do to try and fix it, nothing, absolutely nothing, will bring a computer back to life once it has the blue screen. R.I.P. :(

    That's Why I Have a 

    You NEVER get the blue screen of death on a Mac.  The worst thing that ever happens on a Mac is that an individual program crashes.  When that happens, all you have to do is Force Quit it, and then it's fine.  The OS never crashes though.  No viruses either...

    Too Many a Time.

    I didn't realize anyone else called it the blue screen of death.  I always assumed it was something someone at school had come up with.  At my school, we all have laptops, unfortunately, mine didn't seem to like me very much and constantly broke my sophomore year. ...

    I also hate it when people don't know how to spell words like 'grammar'. Of course, the title of this experience might have been intentionally ironic but I doubt it.
