    THE THERMODYNAMICS OF HELL

    The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington
    chemistry midterm. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the
    professor shared it with colleagues via the Internet, which is of course,
    why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.

    Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic
    (absorbs heat)?

    Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law, (gas
    cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or some
    variant.

    One student, however, wrote the following:

    First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we
    need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate they are
    leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it
    will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.

    As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different
    religions that exist in the world today. Some of these
    religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go
    to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do
    not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to
    Hell.

    With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in
    Hell to increase exponentially.

    Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law
    states that
    in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the
    volume of Hell has to expand
    proportionately as souls are added. This gives two possibilities:

    1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls
    enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until
    all Hell breaks loose.

    2. Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of
    souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell
    freezes over.

    So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Ms. Teresa
    Banyan during my Freshman year, "...that it will be a cold day in Hell
    before I sleep with you.", and take into account the fact that I still have
    not succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then, #2 cannot be true,
    and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze.



    The student received the only "A" given

    Amusing. . . . . funny. . . . . . hilarious. . . . . .

    Thank you Blood God.

    gosh...that kid seems to know a lot about hell, maybe a little too much
    <_<
    give me 1000 men crazy enough to conquer hell, and we will do it

    consider the predator
    let your soul be armoured with faith driven on the tracks of
    obdience which will overcome all obstacles
    and armed with the great guns of zeal, duty, and purity
