The Borowitz Report: Alabama Loses Yet Another Fight to Remain in Eighteenth Century
Alabama, whose first attempt to remain in the eighteenth century took place between 1861 and 1865, has never shown
signs of giving up the fight, even after being dealt a string of
stunning defeats in the nineteen-fifties and nineteen-sixties.
This, my friends, is something that has been building up since November of last year; after a nearly 5-year old “unbreakable” (at the time) 23:25 World Record time, one of the most skilled Doom speedrunners of the past few years, Zero-Master, has been shattering the marks that have been set since then, while innovating new tricks and skips at the same time.
Now, from that point on, the Doom 2 UV-Speed World Record had been lowered all the way down to 20:32. Today, that time is a thing of the past, because the newest Doom 2 WR (that you’re watching right now) has now been set by Zero-Master himself to nineteen minutes and fifty-nine seconds (19:59)!
There’s a lot of tricks and strategies used in this run, and I’m not that well informed when it comes to competitive speedrunning, but Zero-Master himself has a pretty informative FAQ in the video description for all of you to read.
It is 11:30 p.m. on the evening of August first, nineteen hundred and fifty one John Blodgett is seventy years old, and I am very tired. I wonder why I don’t go to bed and go to sleep. But then it would be tomorrow, so I decide that no matter how tired, no matter how incoherent I am, I can skip one hour more of sleep and live.
