Alternatives to the cliche "recipe for disaster" that I came up with until admitting to myself that I was really just avoiding writing the paper


rubric for catastrophe

schematic for cataclysm

blueprint for devastation

formula for calamity

prescription for contretemps

contrivance for apocalypse

agenda for emergency

prospectus for holocaust

design for scourge
