    What is.......HELL........to.......YOU?

    This isn't a religious question but a question based upon your encounters & foibles, even the aggravations & unfairness of everyday life, not to mention your observations.

    Well, I've always thought that if I'm very bad in this life, I will end up at Walmart on a Saturday afternoon, a week before Christmas, for all eternity.

    That's my idea of hell.

    To me if such a place were to exist, and that is a dubious notion, it would not be anything like expected. The word Hell is only mentioned once in the Holy Bible and it is more likely a mistranslated word, the intended word was Hades, yes the Greek underworld, however, it was also the name of a garbage pit outside a biblical city. A pit where besides garbage they threw bodies of the unclean and/or unfortunate. Only other punishment mentioned is "being in darkness" and other turns of the phrase. Which, in my mind, if God is considered the Light, then to be cast into darkness is to be absent of the light of God. However, I don't subscribe to religion either. Hell would be a void. An endless existence in an empty expanse. No one to converse with, no scenery to look at, and no end. All the while, you are stuck with your fully functioning mind. Forced to process it for all time. Forced to become very acquainted with the person you probably know the least. Yourself.

    (2) Being born to impoverished, uneducated parents.
    (3) Living in a very unsafe neighborhood.
    (4) The South Bronx, especially Fort Apache, one of the worst placed in the Bronx- the 10th circle of hell.
    (5) East New York, Brooklyn- the 8th circle of hell.
    (7) Having a college, even advanced degree & working at a Mcjob.
    (8) Being born into a family who you absolutely have NOTHING IN COMMON with.
    (9) Attending an inner city public school.
    (10) Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Ravensbruck, Sobibor, Madjanek, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, Neugamme, Chelmno, Stutthof & the other hells on earth which the demonic Nazis created to imprison &/or exterminate poor souls.
    (11) Being lower middle, working, & lower class.
    (12) Being the oldest child in a large/very large family. Slaves & forced laborers are in heaven compared to this oldest child.

    (14) Working hard while the favorite NEVER DOES anything.
    (15) Being the odd child out in a family.
