The nine circles of hell from Dante’s Inferno recreated in Lego by Mihai Mihu
I. LIMBO: A place of monotony, here the souls are punished to wander in restless existence while they moan helplessly in echoes between the ruins of a temple.
II. LUST: Surrounded by erotic representations, those overcome by lust are forced to watch and experience disgusting things, ultimately being condemned to drown in the menstrual river.
III. GLUTTONY: The circle itself is a living abomination, a hellish digestive system revealing horrific faces with mouths ready to devour the gluttons over and over for eternity.
IV. GREED: This pompous place is reserved for the punishment of the greedy ones.
V. ANGER: In this depressing place the souls are trapped in the swamp, they can’t move and they cannot manifest their frustration which is making them even more angry.
VI. HERESY: The giant demon watches closely over his fire pit, dwarfing the damned that are dragging the new arrivals in the boiling lava. Those who committed the greatest sins against God are getting a special treatment inside the temple where they are doomed to burn for eternity in the scorching flames.
VII. VIOLENCE: A place of intense torture where the horrific screams of the damned are eternally accompanied by the hellish beats of drums.
VIII. FRAUD: In Fraud the Demons enjoy altering the shape of souls, this is how they feed.
IX. TREACHERY: Lucifer lies here chained by the Angelic Seal which keeps him captive in the frozen environment.
SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
thank you for the source! i didn’t want to reblog this thing, because I wasn’t aware of it’s viability
Recent discovery: my grandparents saved every greeting card, postcard and thank you note I ever sent them.
right in the feels.
My grandmother did this as well. I had no idea until we went out of state for her memorial service. She was far from perfect. But she had a lot of love in her heart. It makes me sad to imagine a day where I will forget her laugh, or the sound of her voice.
I have no words to express how much I love these.
I’m still distraught about this. There was no excuse and they should have gotten harsher sentences in my opinion…
There. I feel better; maybe.
Pills, pills, pills it seems like my life revolves around pills. If a zombie apocalypse breaks out, I give myself 6 months.
My grandmother died in July this year. It was hard not because I had been close to her; but because I had not been. She lived halfway across the country and we only saw her a few times a year. I always wanted to go and visit her but being too poor and a number of other personal misconceptions led me to never going to where she lived until she died. I felt horrible for not calling or writing more than I did. I hated that I never understood the scope of her love for me and my family.
But mostly, I hated the fact that it made me reflect on how much I’ve squandered or taken advantage of. I will miss her and appreciate those around me so much more now that I’ve come into, over the last two years, an understanding of how I act and react to those around me.
I just need to get unstuck. I’m freaked out about grad school and so many ways it’s uncertain. But, I know it will finally take the last bit of my immature self to catch up with the wisdom I thought I had in my youth. I can only move forward and continue to self-impose my alteration of my attitudes.
