I'm sure of you have seen this before, but for those of you who haven't, enjoy. One of my friends came across this somewhere and sent it to me. I for one laughed my ass off when I read this


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

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."
