The following is an actual question given on a
The answer by one student was so "profound" that the
professor shared it with colleagues via the Internet, which is
why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.
Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using
Boyle's Law that 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 lookat 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 constant,
the volume of Hell must expand proportionately as souls
....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 Sandra 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 endothermic 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 extinct
leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a
divine being - which explains why, last night, Sandra kept
shouting "Oh my God."
Bears In Billings, MT
A bear walks into a bar in
He bangs on the bar with his paw and demands a beer.
The bartender approaches and says,
"We don't serve beer to bears in bars in
The bear, becoming angry, demands again that he be served
The bartender tells him again, more forcefully,
"We don't serve beer to belligerent bears in bars in
The bear, very angry now, says, "If you don't serve me a beer,
I'm going to eat that lady sitting at the end of the bar."
The bartender says, "Sorry,
we don't serve beer to belligerent, bully bears in bars in
The bear goes to the end of the bar, and, as promised,
eats the woman. He comes back to his seat and again
demands a beer.
The bartender states, "Sorry,
we don't serve beer to belligerent, bully bears in bars
The bear says, "I'm NOT on drugs."
(...You're gonna love this...)
The bartender says,
"You are now. That was a barbitchyouate."
