Seven Deadly Sins

Another quiz for Kailyn.I came across this while surfing the net one night and found it interesting.Geographers from Kansas State University map the spatial distribution of the seven deadly sins in the United States. These types of maps are always kind of iffy as they get data from various sources gathered with different methods and usually use some kind of research-defined metric. But still it's interesting though. The areas in red are the highest concentrated area for that sin and the blue areas are the lowest. I found it interesting the south seemed to be the most sinful for most of the seven sins. I thought for sure the north would have been. Greed was most visible in the Northeast corridor, Florida and most of California. It wouldn't matter much where the Mistress lived, she already has a seat in hell reserved for her, as Mistress of the Underworld, but she took this niffy little quiz to see which sin done her in. Turns out it was Lust! Big, huge shock there!!! What sin will condemm you to the underworld? And what sin is big in your area?

  2. After taking the quiz, I was told I am Very High in Lust (almost 100%), very high in Greed and high in Pride and Gluttony.

    Concerning the questions, "You slept with more than one person in the last year (not at the same time)." Um . . . where was the questions, "You slept with more than one person in the last year (at the same time)?"

    I guess that's why my highest score was Lust.

  4. It seems greed ,envy and pride run big here. I can't believe lust wasn't bigger here. I guess I'm the only one here lusting. I too got lust on my quiz. We should compare notes on what we did to get lust. I like lust.

  6. I can't say greed surprised me for our area. I took the quiz and my results were pride and envy. I thought for sure it would have been gluttony as I love to get my eat on! A very intresting things to see though what areas are affected by which sin. I should head south and see what's all the hoppla is about.

  11. I was medium in all of them except Wrath (very low) and Envy (low). I'm going to post it on my blog.

    TN came out OK in all of them but Wrath, which is quite a combination with the new legislation that allows guns in bars! Who doesn't see disaster in that? Makes me crazy!!!!

  12. I'm not surprised about the sin in the South. L.A. has several of them, too. Interesting study.

    Cool post. I was surprised to see Kansas so huge with lust. When I lived there no one was horny! All they did was eat! And I'm shocked to see that your test revealed lust. So did mine. I would think all gay men's sin would be lust or envy. We always envy things we can't have. So lust and envy sort of go hand in hand.

  14. What a intresting post. I took the test and my result drunk. I mean, Pride followed by pride. But if you look at the maps, here in Harrisburg we are just a bunch of lazy asses!

    Take care Mistress:)

  15. Seems my 'high points' are Lust and Sloth - in other words, I would be a slut if I had the energy. Greed, Wrath and Envy are the low scores for me.

  17. Maddie ... I am a "sloth". Does that mean I'm lazy, or what???

  18. Speeding- Some people view it as lasy, but actually after reading on it, it means your not using your talents to their extent. Most people have talent but don't use it. It doesn't have to do with being lasy.
