I wanna li'l Jayne-penguin! He's so gorram cute.

Reading over this thread, I'm quite surprised. I thought we WERE the scary night people? I would be, if I didn't have to work. 'Bout 2 in the morning is when the plot bunnies get restless...

Anyway, random comment - some idiot with a clipboard and a collecting tin and a big happy 'have-u-met-jesus' smile jumped out at me at lunchtime today, and I forgot myself and hissed at him.

The Ten Bolgias

The ten ditches of the Malebolge, in descending order, are listed thus:

Bolgia One: Panderers and Seducers are punished here. They are forced to march, single file around the circumference of their circle, constantly lashed by horned demons.

Bolgia Two: Sinners guilty of excessive flattery are punished in this bolgia, immersed forever in a river of human excrement.

Bolgia Three: Simonists (sinners guilty of selling church offices for personal gain) are punished here. They are turned upside down in large baptismal fonts cut into the rock, with their feet set ablaze by oily fires. The heat of the flames burns according to the guilt of the sinner.

Bolgia Four: Astrologists, seers, sorcerers and others who attempted to pervert God’s laws to divine the future are punished here. Their heads have been twisted around to face backwards, and thus they are forced to walk backwards around the circumference of their circle for all of time.

Bolgia Five: Grifters (sinners who used their positions in life to gain personal wealth or other advantages for themselves, such as extortionists, blackmailers and unscrupulous businessmen) are punished by being thrown into a river of boiling pitch and tar. In addition, should any of the grafters try to escape the pitch, a horde of demons armed with grappling hooks and barbs stands guard over them, ready to tear them to pieces.

Bolgia Six: Hypocrites are punished in this circle. They are forced to wear heavy lead robes as they walk around the circumference of their circle. The robes are golden and resemble a monk’s cowl but are lined with heavy lead, symbolically representing hypocrisy. Also, Caiphas, the Pharisee who insisted on the execution of Jesus, is crucified in this circle, staked to the ground so that the ranks of the lead-weighted hypocrites march across him.

Bolgia Seven: This bolgia houses the souls of thieves. The bolgia is also filled with serpents, dragons and other vengeful reptiles that torture the thieves endlessly. The bites of some of the snakes cause the thieves to spontaneously combust, only to regenerate their bodies for further torment in a few moments. Other thieves are denied human forms and appear as reptiles themselves, and can only assume their true shape if they steal a human shape from another sinner; this involves a very painful transformation for both souls involved.

Bolgia Eight: In this trench, the souls of those who gave false or corrupted advice to others for personal benefit are punished. They are constantly ablaze, appearing as nothing so much as living, speaking tongues of flame.

Bolgia Nine: Sinners who, in life, promoted scandals, schism and discord are punished here; particularly those who caused schism within the church or within politics. They are forced to walk around the circumference of the circle bearing horrible, disfiguring wounds inflicted on them by a great demon with a sword. The gruesomeness of the wound is proportional to the sins of the particular soul; while some only have gashes or fingers and toes cut off, others are decapitated, cut in half or completely disemboweled.

Bolgia Ten: Falsifiers, those who attempted to alter things through lies or alchemy, or those who tried to pass off false things as real things, such as counterfeiters of coins, are punished here. This bolgia has four subdivisions where specific classes of falsifiers (alchemists, impostors, counterfeiters, and liars) endure different degrees of punishment based on horrible, consumptive diseases such as rashes, dropsy, leprosy and consumption.

The lower edge of Malebolge is guarded by a ring of titans and earth giants, many of whom are chained in place as punishment for their rebellion against the gods. Beyond and below the giants lies Cocytus, hell’s final depth.

Hey PR! Thought I'd never get back in this wknd!

I have something a little odd I'd like to share. I got a letter concerning a Johnson family reunion '06, from a Brenda Leigh Johnson. Posted from Atlanta. Basically it says: I can't make it to the reunion, moved from Atlanta to L.A. to work in the LAPD, doing so well that I'm now on the show called the Closer on TNT.

So, not recognizing the name, I emailed a cousin who's into geneology. He didn't recognize the name either. Saw a commercial tonite for the Closer which mentioned Brenda. Looked up the name on the TNT wesite. It's the name of the main character! It was a marketing ploy, TNT sent out this letter to every Johnson household in America.

Thought that was kinda clever.

Yep I've been getting frustrated too!
You'd think that not being able to post would be a good thing when I'm trying to get more work done, but it hasn't worked out like that. It kept letting me write messages and then taking 8 or 9 tries to post them so I kept coming back to try again (or I would have wasted the time I spent writing them) Does this make sense? No I'm not sure it does! Ah well, hopefully I can get back to my new resolution of logging in twice a day for a QUICK post as a reqard for all my hard work!

Hampsters!!!
God, I own the Hampsterdance CD's; how sad am I?
It is lovely to see all of you again! (although it's still running a bit slow.) And yes, Emma, you made perfect sense. I'm not sure how much time I wasted just trying to make posts go through. I finally just stayed off the site for a day to preserve my sanity. Here's hoping things only get better from here, ya?

I'm having to try several times again.

For some reason "Dead Parrot" is playing in my head. Anyone else getting that?

Oh I found a kind of Dead Parrot sketch icon to add to your Monty Python collection. Have I mentioned I'm a fan of crossovers? Always good for a laugh!

I don't want to jinx anything, but it seems a bit easier to post today...only took two tries over at the Imponderables!



I have missed everyone!
No, RL has been rather boring...actually having to work and all. I much rather prefer being here...

Penguin, that's about how I'm feeling today...sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

If all else fails, give the computer some coffee...right there on the keyboard...or even better, pour it right onto the motherboard. That'll get it going!
