The phrase Blue Screen of Death has its origins in the maritime trade, particularly buccaneer lore of the sixteenth century. When a ship is sunk, all that is left is the morbidly still ocean, glistening bright blue in the Caribbean sun. Thus, when one heads out to sea, with the intention of meeting another boat, and all one sees is the rolling blue ocean, one can sadly assume that that boat has sunk.

The phrase became absorbed into common language as a term referring to the feeling of empty hopelessness one experiences when faced with a vast expanse of watery oblivion. Staring out into Lake Windermere, the great poet William Bleak was sufficiently moved by the still blueness that he wrote his masterpiece "Songs of Death", eventually going on to kick-start the goth movement.

With the advent of air travel in the twentieth century, it became applicable to the sky, as well as the sea: many an early airman was deemed lost to the Blue Screen of Death (although quite a few of them simply turned out to have gotten slightly lost and landed in the wrong place). Over time the Blue Screen has become synonymous with loss, emptiness and to some, the Devil.

The association of the colour blue with death, watery or otherwise, is readily visible throughout modern civilisation. Household cleaners such as bleach are packaged in blue bottles, in memory of those who, when the product was new to the market, mistook it for cheap ouzo and passed away through dissolution of the digestive tract. When one sings "The Blues" one is reflecting on the brevity of life, and the oblivion that awaits in death. Cheese and onion crisps, known to be the foulest of all snack foods, often come packaged in blue to ward off the purchaser.

With this in mind, that the "Blue Screen of Death" is the most chilling and deadly entity in computer science is no surprise. They have been plaguing computer operators since someone had the bright idea of connecting a screen to a computer. This is one of the most puzzling phenomina in computing since during the 60's, 70's and 80's the Blue Screen of Death was able to manifest itself in full blueness on green and amber monochrome cathode, black and white, and two tone LCD screens

The Blue Screen of Death was slipped into the very core of the Windows operating system at its inception, by a malicious developer with a sick interest in pagan rites. It is rumoured that when one sees the Blue Screen of Death on a computer screen it wrenches a tiny part of your soul and binds it to the afflicted machine. Repeated exposure, legend has it, will eventually drain one's spirit, leaving a living corpse, pale and restless, existing without purpose and an unquenchable thirst for caffeine.

A recent evolution of the "Blue Screen of Death" feature in Windows Vista has serious side effects. Instead of simply displaying a "blue screen", the new variant displays random flashing colors in a superhypnobrainwave pattern, causing the user to have a seizure and die within 195 hours of continuous seizure. The seizures are extremely painful for the 195 hours, then the seizure-ee suddenly feels a jabbing pain in their lower upper thigh and dies. 96.3141592% of these seizures last for the full 195 hours. The colors of the screen randomly flash between red, green and blue and actually cause death, so this variant of the "Blue Screen" should instead be called an epileptic screen of red, green and blue death, but Microsoft have decided to make the feature part of their new family of software - creating "Windows Live Screen of Death Beta".

The blue screen of death has had many social consequences. The Catholic Church has condemmed the blue screen of death for promoting a "culture of death". Instead, the church favors the "Ooops" kernel messages generated by linux. The phrase "Ooops" is a sacred part of Roman Catholic tradition, as it is the sound an Irish women makes when she realizes that the rythem method of birth control doesn't work.

A recent study conducted by an up and coming university Massachusetts Institute of Technology, located in Chicago, has managed to determine the Blue Screen of Death as cause of other incidents. It was an extensive study, conducted for over 30 years by a group of under-fed under-grad students.

Incidents: broken computer equipment; violent crime and suicide increase; loss of data and home made movies; wet floor and terrified expression on the face of a person that used the computer last; mysterious deaths of occupants in high-tech residences; increase in drugs abuse; and many more.

It is also possible to see a yellow screen of death, if you are colour-blind. While the BSOD has been known to cause many many heartattacks, it has also been known to cause coniptions as well as the ability to gain super human strength and shoot eye beams into your computer monitor. Please, do not have a heart attack if it happens to you.

When your computer is really messed up, the Blue Screen of Death tells you.

On the BSoD it shows the reason why your computer stopped, generally, you have no idea what it means.

Some BSoD reasons include:

Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area (whatever that means)
Mult_IRP_Complete_Requests (???)
Memory_Management (that sounds bad...)
also some .exe files cause the BSoD

your computer could be ok, or it could be dead, good luck

1) A tried and true method for ensuring people need to buy new hardware after smashing their keyboard and/or mouse into their monitor. This never resolves the problem but is highly satisfying if you can afford it.

2) Mandatory, unexpected, frequent and infuriating intermission for Windows users.

3) Herpes for your PC, flare ups are painful and hard-booting may temporarily relieve symptoms. Frequent system maintenance can help if you don't flare up during, which gets exponentially harder to do. No cure, working as intended.
1) I have lots of extra money so I bought a Windows PC. Now i can place a recurring order for keyboards! Yay, Blue Screen Of Death!

2) I almost won that game but WINtermission snuck up on me. I'm gonna go step into heavy traffic to calm down.

3) Dude, I'm havin all kinda Blue Screen flare ups. I need to defrag, scandisk and pop some antibiotics.

Also named as BSoD (Blue Screen of Death).
This thing appears in Windows because of a fatal of bigger error. You'll probaly know this shit well if you're one of the poor ones who have Windows ME.

Bill Gates made this to upgrade Windows 98.Let´s face it, Windows 98 it's a lot more stable then Windows ME. Each 30 minutes Windows ME shows the BSoF what the fuck...
If you want something better try Linux or MAC, if you still beg for Windows, try Windows XP.

"Shit, not the Blue Screen of Death again. I'll upgrade to Windows XP"

An error message that appears in blue and white on windows 95/98/2000/me/nt/xp/2003 boxes every time you: read a cd-rom/plug in a usb device/install new hardware/read e-mail/play solitaire/look for porn/listen to mp3's/click on start/change the background/chat over IRC/install any kind of new software/make 'backups' of windows Cd's to share with your friends/type word documents/try to get you fscking soundcard to work/calibrate your joystick/open 3rd party browsers like firefox/compile cpp files/keep your pc on for more than two minutes ect.

The problem is rarely caused by bad memory. the main cause is bad programming, whereby a program (usualy explorer.exe, but other virii are also known) ignores memory boundries and writes data to memory locations allocated to other programs, causing them to abort.
Windows caused a page-fault in module winsux.dll at 0x442298765, 0x656758958, 0x2234323434

An access voilation occured while trying to reference memory at 0x444567358

Unspecified error. Abort, Retry, Fail?

when windows running mashines die, they show the infamous blue screen of death... a blue screen with a bunch of crap writing on it that basically tells you that your dumb computer finally met its end for today, aka crashed (but what it means is go buy yourself a Mac while you at it because they're alot better anyways). This screen is a fairly common occurance among windows users.... poor deprived people...
Joe- OH MY GOD MY PC IS SHOWING THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH..... AGAIN!!!! and i was just about to save my huge report! *sob*
Jennifer- oh im sorry, heres a kleenex. why dont you use my brand new iMac G5 to finish your report? it never crashes
