The Seven Deadly Keys [via Neatorama]
Creative :-) Keyboard keys over the 7 deadly sins. Creative.
didnt get the reasoning behind the first four
can any one explain?
ctrl + alt + delete gave me the biggest laugh… just as the biggest, most painful truths sometimes do.
Didn’t really get escape as sloth, but rest made sense. Welcome to my wallpaper for the next few days. :)
Badass! I agree with kevalin: Ctrl+Alt+Del is the best one.
Insertion; Lust. just think about that one for a while, i’m sure you’ll figure it out ;)
caps lock is gluttony because IT MAKES ALL OF YOUR LETTERS FAT.
num lock is greed because it involves numbers.
escape is sloth because you can use it to get out of doing work you’d rather not do.
Hope this helps
“Ctrl + S” and “Ctrl + C” made me laugh the most. xD
Reply to Soumya:
Insert = lust .. From the male perspective. Give it some thought.
CapsLock = gluttony .. Gluttony /= uncontrolled craving /= demand for attention
NumLock = greed … numbers /= finances
Esc = sloth … Giving up instead of not wanting to put in the effort.
Not completely accurate but what anology really is? Still funny :)
Cntrl+Alt+Del is still the best though.
