Without reading the actual class code...

If you made the database connection a Singleton, you must be the dumbest shit ever. But I'm pretty sure you didn't do that...

Just because you get the instance with a static function, doesn't make it a Singleton. Look it up.

Using class methods to disable cloning and deserialization while ensuring only one instance exists is not a singleton?

Why wouldn't you want to prevent multiple instances?

I really want to hear your logic genius
