SUMO

Talking to a friend yesterday who explained SUMO to me - it stands for 'Shut Up, Move On' - in other words, don't get stuck in a place of pain. (In Christian terms, I think it could be phrased as 'come down off your cross'.)

One of the best things about the Sandman sequence was the presentation of hell as somewhere that people chose their forms of punishment. One of many deep truths that Gaiman managed to capture.

  1. I think that's a phenomenally good cartoon which displays how God doesn't really send people to hell per se, we send ourselves by excusing, diminishing or denying our sin and then reaping the clear consequences.
