Fire and Ice, by Robert Frost
Some say the world will end in fire,
But if it had to perish twice,
Invictus, by William Earnest Henley
Out of the night that covers me,
In the fell clutch of circumstance
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
It matters not how strait the gate,
IF, by Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Nothing Gold Can Stay, by Robert Frost
Nature's first green is gold,
Mirror Pool, by Lauren Faust
"Where the brambles are thickest
Puck's Apology, by William Shakespeare
If we shadows have offended,
For Want of a Nail, by Unknown
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
"The only ones who should kill, are those who are prepared to be killed!"
"Males are all stupid and jealous. And females are stupid to be happy about it. Idiots are everywhere you look."
"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of equivalent exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth."
"Keep smiling; it makes people wonder what you're up to."
"Seeing new guns is like meeting new people; but better!"
"Castles may fall, kingdoms may perish; It's none of my businesses."
"Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much."
"Duct tape is like the force; it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together."
"I reject your reality and substitute my own."
"War doesn't determine who's right. War determines who's left."
"Only two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."
“Every man dies, but not every man really lives.”
"Stupidity killed the cat. Curiosity was framed."
“I believe that the human spirit is indomitable. If you endeavor to achieve, it will happen given enough resolve. It may not be immediate, and often your greater dream is something you will not achieve within your own lifetime. But the effort you put forth to anything transcends yourself, for there is no futility, even in death.”
"Magic is the sole science not accepted by scientists, because they can't understand it."
The Situation in Hell:
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 go out with you", and take into account the fact that I went out 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."
