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.
I was like.. “Is that is a giant penis statue?” and then I noticed the bleeding wall vagina and it got even better from there

Tumblr freaked out at first but then she realized it’s really not that bad.
This is for an assignment that is due tomorrow.
Reblog if you think that Harry Potter should NOT be on the banned books list because it features Magic, sets bad examples, and because of dark themes.
Reblog if you think the Twilight series should be banned because it features rape culture, glorifies abusive relationships, and is just a horrible book series overall.
I appreciated this post.
Until that second bit came into play. It honestly makes me cringe a bit inside when I read it. Okay. Partially because I found at least a minuscule amount of pleasure reading Twilight. But as well as I don’t believe any book whatsoever, regardless of content should be banned. The last reason in it is complete shit as well in my opinion. Just because something is a terrible book doesn’t mean it has to be banned. There are plenty of “horrible” novels out there that serve as constant reminders of “what not to do.” If it weren’t for “literary wrecks” like the Twilight Series, up and coming authors wouldn’t have something to look at and say “Hey, that’s something they did wrong, so I’m not going to make the same mistake.”
Now the other points are….kind of valid. I understand the point you’re trying to make oflittlenote but you aren’t really thinking it through. If Twilight were to be banned primarily because of the fact that it features “rape culture” and ” glorifies abusive relationships,” what are we to do about books like Lolita where it essentially is all about a man obsessing and having sexual relations with a pre pubescent girl, and to some, romanticizing it as well. Then we have books with actual rape in them that are literary works of art, then books about drug abuse and depression that one could assert actually promotes them those acts and concepts. To ban a book on the grounds that it is offensive and assumedly promotes horrible lines of thinking is exactly what censorship groups are doing right now and why people avoid Cather in the Rye, or the Harry Potter series. Twilight may not be the best book, but it certainly isn’t the worse and there are books that commit all the “atrocities” it does and then some.
To start banning books in general is just a horrid idea. I bring to the table the book entitled “Fahrenheit 451.” Taking place in a dystopian future it’s a world where books are entirely banned and burned on a daily basis. The banning of all books started initially because of people getting offended at certain things, or believing them to be insensitive or just wrong. “Colored people don’t like Little Black Sambo. Burn it. White people don’t feel good about Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Burn it. Someone’s written a book on tobacco and cancer of the lungs? The cigarette people are weeping? Burn the book.” These books, the good and the bad, stand as reminders to us as to what we should and shouldn’t do. They are a window to the past, and a vision into the future. To ban any single one could possibly open the door to more based on the idea that “Okay we’ll just ban this for these reasons. Wait, that has the same things too, let’s ban it. Those are offensive, let’s get rid of them,” and so on.
So how about we just don’t ban any book ever.
Okay, I’m gonna have to throw this down because the mob mentality is bothering me.
First off, let me show you guys an article just so we can dispel some of these nasty rumors floating around:
“Yahoo has agreed to pay $1.1 billion in cash for the company, one of the people said. Tumblr would continue to operate largely as an independent business, the people said.”
The only thing that Yahoo is doing is picking it up as a platform to insert a few ads here and there. As far as changing the layout, search bar, everything else I’ve seen. Show me one article from at least one legitimate that says those are actually true. At large in every article I’ve read, this is Yahoo’s attempt at being cool, they’re almost in this case acquiring Tumblr so that they can seem cool and Tumblr’s David Karp agreed because Yahoo can do something for the site that is actually pretty important as a whole AND to keep it running. Tumblr NEEDS the money. Tumblr as a majority is a free service with one or two ads that sometimes we don’t even notice. But the fact of the matter in this case is that Tumblr and it’s investors notice.
“Meanwhile, Tumblr has been under increased pressure from investors to start generating a profit. The site, founded by CEO David Karp in 2007, brought in only $13 million in revenue in 2012. Karp’s goal was to make $100 million in revenue in 2013.”
People forget that in reality, in the grand scheme of things, tumblr is STILL a company. A pull in revenue for any major company that’s attached to a site as big or as popular this site makes, such as facebook or twitter makes at least an upwards of 50 times as much as $13 million. Heck that’s actually hardly enough to deal in the professional markets nowadays, which Tumblr actually at least from a monetary stand point doesn’t seem to do well with. It’s PR and such though. Amazing, great. But when it gets down to the bare bones of things, Tumblr IS a business, Karp needs money to pay employees, deal with partners and investors and garner advertisements. So personally this is a good thing because Yahoo HAS the connects, money, and ad partners to help benefit Tumblr.
Secondly, the reason for the purchase being only $1.1 billion, which makes cringe saying only $1.1 billion. Is because Yahoo NEEDS Tumblr, yes big old Yahoo needs us. Why? Because we’re the demographic they WANT to hit. That’s also the reason why they are keeping most if not all operational things and dohickies WITH Karp and tumblr, they DON’T want to fuck up like they did with the other companies. In this way it’s more of a partner ship so that Tumblr can actually reach and pass its revenue and Yahoo can reach us. Us, the hipsters, the fandoms, the anime bloggers, the music fans, content creators. They want to reach us, they want to better themselves as a company and show we can trust them to not change anything and reach us. Yeah yeah there’ll be a couple ads popping up on your dash, but not to the degree everyone is making it to be.
Now lastly for all you porn enthusiasts and I suppose this can apply to people who have or use copyrighted content on this site, don’t lie I know some of you do, heck we all have at one point or another.
“Yahoo’s terms of service also warn users that they might encounter adult material in the company’s products, although it does so without using profanity. And like any service that includes user-generated content, Yahoo has had to deal with people indulging in sexual interests that not everyone would approve of.
But considering that Yahoo is ostensibly interested in Tumblr for the advertising, it’s hard to see the environment getting any friendlier for pornographers on the network. On the other hand, Yahoo may have to tread carefully with suggestive content. There are reasons why Tumblr is popular with young people. Prudishness is not high on that list.”
Yahoo ALSO warns within the terms of service that users on their sites other than Tumblr must be wary that there will be essentially porn involved on their sites. And the rumor is that with Yahoo will bring stricter regulations. I scoff at that and say hardly because they are aware that there are people who in some cases use this site just for adult content. They don’t want to disrupt that, most they’ll do is make sure there’s a NSFW sticker slapped on it. They’re aware of our standards and what we do, they don’t want to disrupt that because that’ll ruin not only Tumblr but Yahoo as well. The same goes for copyrighted content. That won’t change either, we don’t make cash off it and neither does Tumblr.
Finally, please PLEASEremember that this is a business venture so Tumblr can improve and ultimately keep running.
Someone who’s sick of the mob mentality and remembers that if tumblr doesn’t reach its projected revenue earnings, we may not have this site that brought us all together AT ALL
