Like greed, Envy (Latin, invidia) may be characterized by an insatiable desire; they differ, however, for two main reasons. First, greed is largely associated with material goods, whereas envy may apply more generally. Second, those who commit the sin of envy resent that another person has something they perceive themselves as lacking, and wish the other person to be deprived of it. Dante defined this as “love of one’s own good perverted to a desire to deprive other men of theirs.” In Dante’s Purgatory, the punishment for the envious is to have their eyes sewn shut with wire because they have gained sinful pleasure from seeing others brought low. Aquinas described envy as “sorrow for another’s good”

    Is that a nipple almost poking through from her right boob? Or is it that I WANT to see her nipple?

    You perv! No, I’m not. (I’ve really got to quit arguing with myself.)

    casemods is our resident schizoid; actually none of us exist at all outside of casemods head, we are just aspects of his personality and he is all alone.

    This can’t be x-rayed because her top is too thick. However I happen to know who this is, I’m a big fan of Rosie Hardie and here’s a photo of her that almost doesn’t need to be x-rayed: whi.s3.leg.entries.lg1x8.simplecdn.net/20090325181517.jpg

    Also, here’s her and her boyfriend’s blog for more dope stuff: nacedesign.com/blog/

    I assumed that you’ve read Dante’s Divine Comedy, but should you want to read it in English, I really like Ciardi’s translation. He has fun w/ the English language that fits w/ the fun Dante was having w/ Italian Vulgate.

    Dante had some pretty awesome imaginations. the story would make an awesome movie

    I always assumed Dante had gotten ahold of some REALLY good mushrooms.
