hell explained by a chemistry student....have you read this? it's funny?
HELL EXPLAINED BY CHEMISTRY STUDENT
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 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 t he 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
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
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
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
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."
THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A"
i recieved this in an email from a friend.

Ahhhhhhh, the Golden Oldies of Urban legends...........
this story has been passed around since cavemen first learned how to chisel words into rock.
But still amusing, just the same!
Thanks for sharing the classics, and bringing back the memories!Source(s): Seriously though........it DOES remind me of the time, in College, when for a FINAL exam in PHILOSOPHY......I was exepcting like 50 multiple choice questions or something.......and was stunned, when the test papers were handed out, and there was only ONE question. ........ What was Plato's idea of a happy man? Now, since that book was propping up my stereo......and I hadn't read a page of it........I knew this was gonna be DICEY.......... so I proceeded to write this BRILLIANT essay on what >>>I<<< thought a happy man was. It was something like that speech there, about the red haired babe in one of my other classes.........and the time we shared in my shower. It was all about the glistening orbs, and the cosmic meaning of it all. Amused as my professor was though......I still got an F though. but he did tell me I was a hell of a creative writer, and gave me a D for the course.........just for faithfully showing up at least.

I've actually heard it before! Its quite amazing! I would have given him an "A" for that too!
The one I heard before had a slight variation though. It was that he never slept with Teresa and he deduced from that, that Hell is endothermic. Still this is quite clever!

yes, but with a slight variation.
i heard that the student never slept with Teresa and therefore, Hell was endothermic. i'm pretty sure it was blown out of proportion, or made up by someone very very bored...

Wow that was very interesting i would have given the paper an A also.
It is a very neat way to explain hell.

Kayde! This Brilliant; Funny and True. Thank you for posting this on Yahoo. By the way, where have you been?

I doubt that he got the only A based off a question that made no sense wtf school was this? If he gets the only A im pretty sure the people coming out of that school will be homeless because his grade wasnt based off of anything they learned in class or any facts lol. He wasnt able to demonstrate any values of chemistry via that bs answer (completey made up)
Pisses me off if he did lol
I work me *** off to get the grades I go and I feel like I deserve them I would go to the dean and try and get that pos teacher fired hes totally screwing the class of their education

More testing and observation is required before a conclusion may be presented.

Delightful answer, the student deserved his "A"
