    Hell..Exothermic or Endothermic? LOL!



    The following is 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

    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. < /P>

    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

    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 two 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."

    and here's more proof that actually Hell Froze Over

    Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened.

    Indeed it is, I did that like 2 years ago ;)
