Default Monday Funny....gates of HE LL!



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

> 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

> need to know the rate at which souls are moving into
