Did you ever wonder why Andy Rooney, of all people, seems to be depicted as the authoritative figure on about a third of the junk e-mails in the United States? O.K., I made that up, but I did get another one of those “agree or delete” things, wanting me to verify my Christian faith. Without going into great detail, the thing is filled with a combination of half-truths. For instance, the Supreme Court DOES have the 10 Commandments on the building, but it also has other representations of law givers. So it’s not the Commandments per se that was the problem, it was the status as the singular law which that Alabama judge was trying to suggest that was problematic.
In any case, I’ve seen Andy Rooney enough times to doubt that he was actually the source of the info attributed to him. Intellectually lazy, the creators of these spam e-mails are. And speaking of lazy:
“Sloth- You don’t do anything too difficult in your life. You take the easy way out and sleep way too much.While sleeping, you will be burned alive in a house fire.”
Still sloth. Oh, barnacles!
Paired deadly sins! As dwvr put it, “This is one of those ‘how come I didn’t think of that?’ concepts HERE.
I was trying to come up with others, and all I got was the same sloth/lust combination one of the respondents came up with. I do agree that it’d be more informative if, e.g., the chart replaces “the A-G letter labels with meaningful letters. Use the first letter of each sin (with Greed replaced by Avarice, for uniqueness). Then it will be possible look at WE = Cattiness and see immediately that it refers to Wrath and Envy.”
The page in general is fun with ersatz math.
