For years, Something Awful forum members have reveled in user bEatmstrJ's blow-by-blow account of a terrible bathroom remodel, in which he sought to transform his bathroom "with a woman in mind" with an eye to a future home-sale ("woman play an unfair role in the home-buying process"); bEatmstrJ's saga combines terrible ideas about how a bathroom should look with total home-renovation incompetence, making it the perfect foil for Something Awful's pioneering brand of jeering insults and mayhem.
Now, Something Awful user Dieting Hippo has celebrated bEatmstrJ's bathroom by immortalizing it as a level for the venerable first-person-shooter Doom II, and so was born BATHDOOM.
Dieting Hippo told Matthew Gault from Motherboard that bEatmstrJ had transformed his bathroom into "a bathroom that would appeal to cans of Axe body spray."
BATHDOOM is the product of bEatmstrJ's hubris and Dieting Hippo's genius. Everything is there—the weird color scheme, the psychedelic paintings, and the rocks that hurt your feet (and cause the player to take damage).
It's not the first time that bEatmstrJ's cursed bathroom has been injected into a video game. After he posted pictures of the finished bathroom and was roundly mocked, one poster recreated the bathroom in The Sims 4 and declared it too garish for use even by digital humans.
Thanks to Dieting Hippo and the power of Doom II, bEatmstrJ's cursed DIY bathroom project will live on in digital memory

In the late 1950s, a truck carrying a cement mixer crashed on E300 Road between Talala and Winganon, Oklahoma. Apparently too heavy for anyone to deal with, the mixer sat for decades where it was occasionally graffitied or whimsically decorated. In 2011, artists Heather and Barry Thomas celebrated their wedding anniversary by transforming the drum […]

Physics may have been that class you sleepwalked your way through in high school. But while it might have just slipped under your radar throughout your academic career, you probably shouldn't have given it such shallow attention. Sure, we could focus on the immediate pluses of a career as a physicist, like the more than […]
