we interrupt this blog to remind you that in shakespeare’s day, and hamlet’s, suicide was guaranteed to send you to hell

and if you died without getting your last rites, etc, there was a good chance you would go to hell

so when horatio says to hamlet, “i am more an antique roman than a dane; here’s yet some liquor left”

what he is saying is, “i would rather follow you to hell than keep my chance of heaven without you”

this has been a post

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated!
