Short for: Door Migrating Syndrome

This is a condition that stays dormant for most of childhood, finally manifesting on the onset of high school. There is no known cure, short of a traumatic social faux pas. However, there is debate that a cure indeed exists, the syndrome having been an integral part of the subject’s life and thus embedded too deep in his or her well being to ever be completely removed. In short, those afflicted by Door Migrating Syndrome are by and large inclined to pursue academic challenges with more vigor than the average person. So much so in fact, that the subject my lose touch with reality, mistakenly believing that they are superior to others for the fact of their studious aptitude. The type-A personality that emerges is both comical and worrisome. While the subject may flaunt their talents in a disgustingly inappropriate manner, they also engage in manipulation, and have been known to play their own friends off each other. As a result, cases of infighting among the DMS have been documented, often ending with no clear cut victor. They are both irrational and systematic. Their greatest weakness is to be found in any electronic device that may aid them in their quest for knowledge. Additionally, there exists for the average DMS a strange attraction to the sea. Whether this arises from confusion in finding the ocean to be lacking doors or an affinity for Poseidon’s pointy trident is unclear. What is known is that they go to great lengths to spend time on these salty waves of solitude. In closing, the reader will note that the DMS is not your typical nerd. They are both ambitious and benevolent creatures. Their anal attitudes are often overlooked in favor of their subtle hilarity, carnivorous cookie appetites, and ability to offer insight into life’s most trivial details.
Teacher: It is clear that Macbeth has conflicting feelings about Duncan’s murder and is not wholly bad. What does he say to indicate that he made conscious choice to forsake morality and that guilt is his greatest obstacle? Can anyone remember?
DMS: Oh I know! “If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well It were done quickly: if the assassination could trammel up the consequence, and catch with his surcease success; that but this blow
might be the be-all and the end-all here…”
Teacher: Very good, that was very impressive, you are absolutely correct-
DMS: “…But here, upon this bank and shoal of time, we'd jump the life to come. But in these cases We still have judgment here; that we but teach Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice commends th' ingredience of our poison'd chalice…”
Teacher: Thank you but I don’t think more will be necess-…
DMS: “…To our own lips. He's here in double trust; first, as I am his kinsman and his subject, strong both against the deed; then, as his host…”
Teacher: That will do
DMS: “…Who should against his murderer shut the door…”
Teacher: Shut your god damn trap

Aka Doc martens. Quite famous brand of boots and shoes. First made in the 60's for policemen and workmen. They come in a variety of colours and patterns including paisley and flowers. They're made too last and have designs for men and women. Air wair's are probably the most common style.

Similar to DYS (meaning drill yourself), but instead of telling someone else to drill themselves to death. You are saying you want to drill yourself to death.
Person 1: "I want to go to a party and have some fun."
Person 2: "Right after I wanna dms with a sharp drill."

A once-respected Hardcore crew from NYC. Now known more for cringe worthy Rap music (and being ignored by the Hip Hop industry in general) than for anything else. Their bands are big (for the Hardcore scene) in Japan, Europe and other places where people don't know any better.
