Thought You Might Enjoy This (hee hee) [Jun. 11th, 2005|07:41 pm]
still just a boy
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 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 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."

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A"

I finally got two songs partially recorded for the project presentation, which went pretty well. I mean, I'm not anywhere close to done with composing this thing, but I must say it sounded pretty kickass when I put all of the tracks together on ProTools for the opening song. Except for the vocals, because I couldn't figure out how to add cool effects to that. But this is looking pretty good.
So last night, Andrew, Cyrus, Ian, Laura, and I performed Andrew's play Limbo (which is all about four people on death row), and it kicked ass. The dialogue and stories behind the characters were excellent, and we acted pretty well for a staged reading. I still haven't figured out the character of Jack; it was a cool challenge to try and make some sense out of him. Today Andrew presented a tape of the first scene, Ian showed a clip from his film, Calvin gave a PowerPoint presentation on Internet slander and regulations, and everybody did well. We then went through the grueling rehearsals for Graduation tomorrow and had Senior Night later that evening. It was all right I guess. I didn't get a book that was purchased with me in mind (it was about evolution (?)), and I really resented the fact that Rea made Calvin stay away from the event. Meh. At least I'll be out of this thing in 24 hours. Obviously I'll miss a ton of people, but other than that...it's time to fucking move on.

List five songs that you are currently digging ... it doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words or even if they're any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artist and the song in your blog along with your five songs. Then tag five other people to see what they're listening to.

1. "Wise Up" - Aimee Mann
2. "We Built This City on Rock and Roll" - Jefferson Starship
3. "The Celibate Life" - The Shins
4. "Mojo Pin" - Jeff Buckley
5. "You Better You Bet" - The Who

So, I had a great session with Lynn Britt on Friday, it was informative, I gotta lot of work to do on my auditions, five more days, yadda yadda yadda.
I'm miserable. For reasons I can't disclose at this time. I will when I see that it's okay with the people in question.
