fear and loathing

fear and loathing: [from Hunter S. Thompson] n. A state inspired by the
   prospect of dealing with certain real-world systems and standards
   that are totally brain-damaged but ubiquitous --- Intel 8086s,
   or COBOL, or EBCDIC, or any IBM machine except the
   Rios (a.k.a. the RS/6000).  "Ack!  They want PCs to be able to
   talk to the AI machine.  Fear and loathing time!"
