Which is your favorite deadly sin?

I'll take Lust with a side of Sloth, thank you.

Hail Satan!

They all are.

Each balances the other as needed.

Context is everything.

I had to look up what they were. Good god, I'd make a bad Catholic.

Does that mean you won't get on top?

Imagine all the confessionals we would have to make!!

Pride, Lust, Sloth, Gluttony. That just about sums up my life. The other three rarely pop up for me.

I take them in my own order.

First, I am greedy. I like to have things and people under my control, I am a control freak. I envy someone for what they have, which triggers my greed and greed is due to my vanity. So, I lust after something or someone. I indulge as I see fit, which could be considered gluttony because I take more than I need. I enjoy excess. It's always better to have more than you need than less than you need.

Sloth I'm not too big on. I'm very proactive, it's my nature. And Wrath? Who doesn't have that on occasion?

I LOVE wrath! I love letting anger seep through my blood, darkening it. I love slinking about an otherwise mundane place like a serpent. I love the way it makes me bounce up and go hustle for my survival. I love the way it keeps me away from the herd at least mentally if not geographically. I'm now ironically grateful for the things that made me angry like the (equally ironic) pressure for women to never be angry. I love the way it guides me towards self-preservation. I love being cool, calculating, rational, and acerbic. I love dark music like heavy metal, African, voodoo/candomble sounds, and crunk. I love angry intellectuals like Ayn Rand and Christopher Hitchens. I like dark nails, strong drink, sleeping in pitch blackness on a frosted winter night. I like how I seem deep for someone my age. I love how anger makes do epicurean things like have wild passionate sex. As a Satanic person I don't listen to the herd's insistence that one must strive for inner peace, joy, and heavenly bliss. That crap is so overrated!

I also love pride and lust. I would say those are my three best indulgences.

Sloth is nice sometimes, but I end up cursing myself when I should have been getting things done!

"Idle hands..."

Aside from that, it's not a conscious thing for me. I've been Christ-free for like 9 years now, so thinking in terms of "sinning" isn't relative to my thought process.

I think in terms of, "What could I do to get the most happiness?", of course in an Epicurean manner. To do otherwise would be a real injustice to myself.

Oh, I don't know. I could put them in order of personal preference. I'll even give you percentages because you like physics which probably means you like quantifiable results. Thus, I will make up some percentages to go with my "sins." Just for you, Magister Nemo. Merry Xmas!

Lust 40%
Sloth 20%
Vanity 10%
Envy 10%
Pride 10%
Greed 5%
Wrath 5%
Equals 100% Bonnie!

Why thank you!

However to underline what I mean, consider how your percentages might change in the following contexts:

IRS Audit:

Lust 0% (The auditor isn't even cute).
Sloth 0% (I better show up on time and with my documentation).
Vanity 5% (I don't feel all that much in control here).
Envy 5% (I wish I lived outside the US).
Pride 5% (I wish I didn't have to put up with this nonsense).
Greed 50% (I want to keep my money!).
Wrath 35% (God damned tax man!).

Upon achieving orgasm:

Lust 100% (This is my universe).
Sloth 0% (What?).
Vanity 0% (What?).
Envy 0% (What?).
Pride 0% (What?).
Greed 0% (What?).
Wrath 0% (What?).

True, those percentages were meant to be at the "sitting in front of my computer reading posts on LttD" state. Also, I somehow missed gluttony. Oh well. They say that attention to detail is important for a Satanist, but if it is a requirement then my application is going to be denied.
