Get Acquainted With Dante's Sins

The latest Dante's Inferno trailer provides us with a quick recap of the sins of man - lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud, treachery, and using leetspeak. I might have made up one of those.

It's a lovely trailer and all, but I can't help but wonder what changes Dante Alighieri would have made to his sin lineup had he written The Divine Comedy today. Would there be a circle for people who spoil the endings to movies? People who talk loudly on their cell phones in public? Folks who hold up the line at Starbucks? Perhaps back then it was easy to limit things to nine circles, but like a tree, I suspect hell has developed a few new ones since then. Somebody get that man a Spirograph.
