This week, a new website took over my attention. As I obsessed between the fastest growing list I have ever encountered and the refresh button I was amazed, stupefied, dumbified, cracking up, and nodding in agreement. Started by a group of six friends, 10,000 Reasons Civilization is Doomed is their reaction to the world and the doom that awaits us. Inspired by the (so-called ) V6, the Word It for this September is doom.

With that said, please read the specifications for submittal, where we tell you what kind of file we need, the size requirements, naming conventions and how to provide us with your desired linkage.

Word-its will be updated on a weekly basis.

This reminds me of Sports Illustrated's "This week's sign of the Apocolypse"

What's the old saying, ignorance breeds ignorance. And, I guess here, it's negative energy breeds more negative energy.

Reason #10,001: Six smug people sitting around bitching about life while brazenly claiming that it has a noble and meaningful purpose.

Reason 10,002: Unclear antecedents.

'It' refers to the bitching not to life.

I am most amused that the "word-it" for the last four or five times has allowed Jason Tselentis the opportunity to use the very same image over and over. If I didn't know better, I'd say it was planned. Brilliant.
