Frozen, God, and Heaven: The following is reputed to be an actual question given on a University of Arizona chemistry mid term, and an actual answer turned in by a student. 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, which is unlikely. 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 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 an A+ VIA THEMETAPICTURE.COM ENGINEERS TORY.COM srsfunny:Hell Explained By An Engineer

 If you are talking about dolphins they
 used to be wolf like creatures that due to
 scarcity of food they had to hunt in water so
 they slowly evolved into water mammals,
 dolphins still have claw bones but they are
 unnecessary and dolphins will get rid of
 them with time and will develop abilities to
 breath under water
 (This also partially applies to whales)

 In regards to the first comment, most
 things in the ocean perform gas exchange
 anyway so it isn't that bold of a move in
 some respects it's kind of a fool's move of
 terrestrial animals to leave the saline bath
 hat life started off in, since we now have to
 lug our dumb bodies around, full of carefully
 our cells are just Like That
 regarding the second comment on this thread,
 dolphins are probably fine mostly as they are,
 and I would not expect them to lose attrib
 utes to demonstrate their "evolving/progress-
 ing away from their origins." People think that
 evolution is like an unstoppable escalator that
 either kills you or forcibly moves you from
 primitive things to sophisticated things, but
 it isn't. Things don't become More Thingish
 with Time, that's not how evolution works
 There is no particular evolutionary pressure
 on dolphins to lose traits that suit their
 lifestyles perfectly well, Most of the
 high-pressure challenges that wild dolphins
 face today-fishing activities, pollution,
 habitat destruction, food network disruption
 and climate change are not going to exert
 evolutionary pressure on remnant bones; and
 the act of breathing appears to be as natural
 to dolphins as, well, breathing.
 For example, being able to breathe surface
 air means that dolphins and whales can
 move through water that has very low
 quantities of oxygen (such as highly polluterd
 water) where fish cannot survive, because
 there is not enough oxygen diffused in the
 water to maintain a constant supply for fish;
 whales and dolphins can simply surface to
 take a gulp of air
 With enormous lungs that are adapted to
 holding breath for incredibly long periods of
 time, whales and dolphins can essentially
 scuba-dive to areas of the ocean that other
 animals cannot access, as well as eying up
 things above the surface of the water, Ina
 rapidly changing environment, with food/
 climate/water all doing things they ve NEVER
 done before, this offbeat mammalian funk-
 iness may even be the key towards sticking
 around and surviving a weird period of history
 Anyway, these are Valid Historical Legges
 and evolution is not a straight line from Bad
 Animals to Good Progressive Animals. As
 evidenced by how excellent and powerful
 these ancestral beasties are. They may be
 ancestral but they are MAGNIFICENT
 pictured: a good girl, valid and perfect in her-
 self, a stage of someone else's evolution but
 also perfectly complete in herself, somebody's
 daughter and somebody's ancestor but also
 just somebody in her own right, perhaps not
 as good at swimming as the cetaceans of
 the future, but perfectly acceptable in her
 moment of history, and in all other moments
 Thank you for this articulate obliteration of
