Dante, having obtained permission from his guide, holds discourse with Farinata degli Uberti and Cavalcante Cavalcanti, who lie in their fiery tombs that are yet open, and not to be closed up till after the last judgment. Farinata predicts the Poet's exile from Florence; and shows him that the condemned have knowledge of future things, but are ignorant of what is at present passing, unless it be revealed by some newcomer from earth. Dante Alighieri - The Divine Comedy - Inferno - Canto X

After some hindrances, and having seen the hellish furies and other monsters, the Poet, by the help of an angel, enters the city of Dis, wherein he discovers that the heretics are punished in tombs burning with intense fire; and he, together with Virgil, passes onward between the sepulchres and the walls of the city.

A signal having been made from the tower, Phlegyas, the ferryman of the lake, speedily crosses it, and conveys Virgil and Dante to the other side. On their passage, they meet with Filippo Argenti, whose fury and torment are described. They then arrive at the city of Dis, the entrance whereto is denied, and the portals closed against them by many Demons. - Dante Alighieri - The Divine Comedy - Inferno - Canto VII

In the present Canto, Dante describes his descent into the fourth circle, at the beginning of which he sees Plutus stationed. Here one like doom awaits the prodigal and thenavaricious; which is, to meet in direful conflict, rolling great weights against each other with mutual upbraidings.

Koffie, snowboarden en vette filmpjes

Op de UT door een gang lopend, koffie drinkend en spreken over politiek met andere jonge intelectuelen. Knipoog uitdelen. Frontaal tegen kast aan lopen. Wereldrecord koffiewerpen zetten. Zeer tevreden, bleek daadwerkelijk wereldrecord te zijn. Maar u weet wat ze zeggen. Hoe stom je je ook voelt, kijk onderstaand filmpje en je voelt je meteen extreem stoer. Ondanks het feit dat je op een vrij moment youtube filmpjes zit te kijken bent in plaats van iets doen met je leven.

On his recovery, the Poet finds himself in the third circle, where the gluttonous are punished. Their torment is, to lie in the mire, under a continual and heavy storm of hail, snow, and discolored water; Cerberus, meanwhile barking over them with his threefold throat, and rending them piecemeal. One of these, who on earth was named Ciacco, foretells the divisions with which Florence is about to be distracted. Dante proposes a question to his guide, who solves it; and they proceed toward the fourth circle.

Coming into the second circle of Hell, Dante at the entrance beholds Minos the Infernal Judge, by whom he is admonished to beware how he enters those regions. Here he witnesses the punishment of carnal sinners, who are tossed about ceaselessly in the dark air by the most furious winds. Amont these, he meets with Francesca of Rimini, through pity at whose sad tale he falls fainting to the ground.

The Poet, being roused by a clap of thunder, and following his guide onward, descends into Limbo, which is the first circle of Hell, where he finds the souls of those, who although they have lived virtuously and have not to suffer for great sins, nevertheless, through lack of baptism, merit not the bliss of Paradise. Hence he is led on by Virgil to descend into the second circle.

Leerzame InternetCie vergaderingen

Colleges zijn zo freaking leerzaam. Waarachtig. Zo leerde ik de afgelopen colleges de volgende paar wijsheden: "Als je presenteert lees dan niet enkel je powerpoints voor", of wat dacht u van deze "Als je een presentatie steelt van een vorig groepje, pas de datum dan aan". Of eentje voor de docent: "als je groepjes vraagt om presentaties te geven onderbreek ze dan niet elke 2 zinnen om zelf een anekdote uit je loopbaan te geven".

Dante, following Virgil, comes to the gate of Hell; where, after having read the dreadful words that are written thereon, they both enter. Here, as he understands from Virgil, those were punished who had passed their time (for living it could not be called) in a state of apathy and indifference both to good and evil. Then, pursuing their way, they arrive at the river Acheron; and there find the old ferryman Charon, who takes the spirits over to the opposite shore; which, as soon as Dante reaches, he is seized with terror, and falls into a trance.

Iedereen is raar

Iedereen is raar. Warempel, compleet mesjogge. Laat ik beginnen met Baptisten (een subsoort van christenen; red). Die spreken over God als iets dat je kan ervaren, nou ja, whooptiedoo. Voelen, zien en proeven. Ja ja. We moesten het maar vergelijken met een amuse bij de libreille. Aldus de dominee. Pindakaas met doperwten! Wat is een amuse? En wat is de libreille? Weird.

After the invocation, which poets are used to prefix to their works, he shows that, on a consideration of his own strength, he doubted whether it sufficed for the journey proposed to him, but that, being comforted by Virgil, he at last took courage, and followed him as his guide and master.
