    "We?" I think there's a slight diff b/t envy and jealousy...jealousy is a bit of a secondary reaction, but envy is deep seated and constant...:creep:

    I think that the connection between this sins and their lethality ("deadly sins") is somewhat tenuous at best.

    You can't die from having too much money. I mean sure, someone can rob you at gunpoint then kill you afterwards, but that's not really your fault is it?

    You could probably eat yourself to death if you didn't poo regularly though. You'd have a bit of a Mr Creosote moment, y'know?
    Easily avoidable with a bit of exercise. I plan on eating a whole pizza tonight, plus side, and plenty of desert. And then snacks. But I've been exercising all day so it totally doesn't count. In fact, it evens itself out in my favour seeing as it's a Bank Holiday weekend. I don't know why, it just does.

    The only way you could die from lust is a sex-induced heart attack, and that's gotta be far too enjoyable to be considered a sin.

    I could go on.

    It depends on the set. \mathrm{sup}_{x \in \mathbb{N}}\sin x = \mathrm{sup}_{x \in \mathbb{Z}} \sin x= \mathrm{sup}_{x\in\mathbb{Q}}      \sin x = \mathrm{sup}_{x\in \mathbb{R}}\sin x = \sin \frac{\pi}{2} = 1
    \mathrm{sup}_{x\in \mathbb{C}}|\sin x| = \infty,\text{ if } \sin x:=\displaystyle\sum_{n=0}^{           \infty}\dfrac{(-1)^n}{(2n+1)!}x^{2n+1}.

    "Absolute hatred?"

    And that is definitely envy which might lead to wrath...

    What is the difference between greed and gluttony?

    I don't regard any of them as a sin because they make me who i am and i frankly love myself however greed, pride and lust all define me to a great degree. That being said i find that my lust for power motivates me, my pride gives me the confidence to peruse what i desire aiding my lust and my greed only serves to enhance my ambition.

    I do have my bad points as a result of greed and pride however they are far outweighed by the good.

    greed is taking so much and you know you don't need it nor want it, possibly hoarding till it goes to waste
    gluttony is taking more than you need but you use it all up it's just taking an abundance of things, it's like indulgence

    All the sins are chains to each other they can lead to another sin if you think about it

    Welp many people are surely, it's one of the bad aspects of human nature which leads us to sloth. Sloth is the moral laziness so it eventually shows in how they take care of themselves and their things.

    I know what 'Wrath' means - like anger and stuff eg. "Villain: Feel my wrath!", but what does it entail in everyday life?
