Then I hoped you picked Pride, since you're assuming that everyone else's struggles/indulgences are the same as yours.

I've said this somewhere else, but mine is a three-way tie between gluttony, lust, and sloth. If I can eat a big meal, get laid, and then sleep late the next morning, it's a good day.

Ah, but the poll doesn't ask which vice are we most susceptible to but rather which is our favorite to indulge in. I'm fairly confident that even the most prideful person has more fun indulging in lust...with sloth coming in second.

Pride is mine. I suppose lust would be it, if I wasn't butt ugly and poor.

Sounds like too much effort to me.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

Because all of the rest of them are ultimately derived from pride, if you choose pride, you get to indulge in the rest of them as a side effect.

I'm glad stupidity isn't a sin, because I had to look Avarice up. blush

I HAD to pick pride because I'm so often toldI'm an arrogant SOB.

The problem is I also get people seriously telling me the opposite. I'm so confused....cry

Alternately, if you choose sloth, you'll be too lazy to care about stopping your moral decline in all the others. laugh

I answered based on what I have the hardest time resisting. To me, that seems more in line with the idea of it being a "sin". Something not neccessarily enjoyed, more that it's a part of your nature which must be denied.

That's what I keep telling people. "You have no idea how humble I am, because you don't know how much smarter I am than I let on."

Interestingly - here on BGG, where people boast collections totaling 200, 300, 500 or even 1000 games...I'd think "gluttony" would be the #1 sin...

I'm having a hard time getting over the fact that you guys have *bigger* sins than that....

Uhmmmm, everybody knows it isn't just a sin when you think about one of the associated activities. You have to either perform them to excess or let it control some aspect of your life. In other words Pride isn't just thinking you are smarter than the average person, it is letting those around you know it by all of your actions. Lust isn't desiring that pretty woman, it is creating a fan club, stalking her, or groping her as she passes in the street. Unless you are a member of a religion that thinks having human emotions counts as being sinful.

Tough choice. Since I'm not committed to 30 minutes of cuddling after eating an ice-cream sundae, Gluttony it is.

Yeah, pride is the one I actually indulge. Not with purpose and forethought, but it happens. I know I should not consider myself better than thos earound me, no matter how much evidence I am presented with. Ha!

It's 8:54 a.m., and I have already indulged in Sloth, Lust, and Pride. Gluttony is a couples of hours ahead (more time for sloth).

I love the holidays.
