Subj: chemistry proves hell and heaven, very funny thesis!
You have to read this one all the way through..... I'm still laughing!!!

Subject: can this be true?

The following is supposedly an actual question given on a University
of Washington chemistry mid-term. 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 when it expands and heats 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 at

which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which 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. Most 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. 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 Teresa

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 slept with her

last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell

is exothermic and has already frozen over.

The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it

follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore,

extinct...leaving only Heaven thereby proving the existence of a

divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh

my God."

OK, I never get involved with the political garbage. But, reading on, this was a post I had to reply to.
Excuse me; I need to put on dry pants.
