food will swim by, you might live in New Brunswick.

Thought all you budding chemists might appreciate
this... I just wish I would have thought of it on some of my exams... I can see
it working in Philosophy.
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
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.
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"
A woman stopped by unannounced at her recently
married son's house. She rang the doorbell and walked in and was shocked to see
her daughter-in-law lying on the couch, totally naked. Soft music was playing,
and the aroma of perfume filled the room. "What are you doing?" she asked. I'm
waiting for my husband to come home from work," the daughter-in-law answered.
"But you're naked!" the mother-in-law exclaimed. "This is my love dress," the
daughter-in-law explained. "Love dress? But you're naked!" "My husband loves me
to wear this dress," she explained. "It excites him to no end. Everytime he
sees me in this dress, he instantly becomes romantic and ravages me for hours
on end. He can't get enough of me."
The mother-in-law left. When she
got home, she undressed, showered, put on her best perfume, dimmed the lights,
put on a romantic CD, and laid on the couch waiting for her husband to arrive.
Finally, her husband came home. He walked in and saw her laying there so
provocatively. "What are you doing?" he asked. "This is my love dress," she
whispered, sensually. Needs ironing," he said. "What's for dinner?"
Dear Tech Support:
Dear Tech Support: Last year I upgraded from
Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a slow down in the overall
performance, particularly in the flower and jewellery applications that had
operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.
In addition, Husband 1.0
un-installed many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal
Attention 6.5, but installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0 and NBA 3.0.
And now Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and House Cleaning 2.6 simply will
not load. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but it causes
the system to crash.
What can I do?
First keep in mind; Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment
package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.Try entering the command C:\
I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME and download Tears 6.2 to install Guilt 3.0.
works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications
Jewellery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.
But remember, overuse can cause Husband 1.0
to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a
very bad program that will create Snoring Loudly.wav files.
do, DO NOT install Mother-in-Law 1.0 or reinstall another Boyfriend program.
These are not supported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.
summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have a limited memory and
cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider additional software
to improve memory and performance. I personally recommend Hot Food 3.0 and
Good Luck, Tech Support

A Texan was having a drink at a bar with an old
friend when he noticed an attractive and chesty young lady seated at the bar
eating a hamburger. As he held eye contact with her, she swallowed a bite and
it must have gone down the wrong pipe for she began choking. She was turning
blue and obviously in serious respiratory distress.
The Texan said to his
friend, 'That there gal is having a bad time!'
The other agreed and said,
'Think we should go help?'
'You bet,' and with that he ran over and said,
'Can you breathe????'
She shook her head no.
He said, 'Can you speak??'
She again shook her head no. With that, he pulled up her skirt and licked
her on the butt. So shocked was the young woman that she coughed up the
obstruction and began to breathe, with great relief.
Smiling to his friend,
the Texan said, 'Funny how that Hind Lick manoeuvre always works'

seniors down a highway, when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady.
She offers him a handfull of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up. After
approx.15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another
handful of peanuts. She repeats this gesture about eight times.
ninth time he asks the little old lady why they do not eat the peanuts
themselves, whereupon she replies that it is not possible because of their old
teeth, they are not able to chew them.
"Why do you buy them then?" he asks
Whereupon the old lady answers, 'We just love the chocolate around

"Jamie O'Conner and me had a
fight," says Paddy.
"That little shit, O'Conner," says Sean, "He couldn't
do that to you, he must have had something in his hand."
"That he did,"

"Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself. Didn't you have
something in your hand?"
"That I did," said Paddy..... "Mrs. O'Conner's

An Irishman who had a little too much to drink is

violently all over the road. A cop pulls him over.
"So," says the cop to
the driver, "where have ya been?"
"Why, I've been to the pub of course,"
slurs the drunk.
"Well," says the cop, "it looks like you've had quite a

"I did all right," the drunk says with a smile.
"Did you know," says the cop, standing straight and folding his arms across
his chest, "that a few intersections back, your wife fell out of your car?"
Oh, thank heavens," sighs the drunk. "For a minute there, I thought I'd gone
Brenda O'Malley is home making dinner, as usual,
when Tim Finnegan arrives at her door.
"Brenda, may I come in?" he asks.
"I've somethin' to tell ya."
"Of course you can come in, you're always
welcome, Tim. But where's my husband?"
"That's what I'm here to be telling
ya, Brenda." There was an accident down at the Guinness brewery..."
God no!" cries Brenda. "Please don't tell me."
"I must, Brenda. Your
husband Shamus is dead and gone. I'm sorry."
Finally, she looked up at Tim.
"How did it happen, Tim?"
"It was terrible, Brenda. He fell into a vat of
Guinness Stout and drowned."
"Oh my dear Jesus! But you must tell me true,
Tim. Did he at least go quickly?"
"Well, Brenda...no. In fact, he got out
three times to pee."
Mary Clancy goes up to Father O'Grady after his

He says, "So what's bothering
you, Mary my dear?"
She says, "Oh, Father, I've got terrible news. My
husband passed away last night."
The priest says, "Oh, Mary, that's
terrible. Tell me, Mary, did he have any last requests?"
She says, "That he
did, Father." The priest says, "What did he ask, Mary? "
She says, "He
said, 'Please Mary, put down that damn gun...'
A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a

to get his attention but the drunk continues to sits there. Finally, the Priest

The drunk mumbles, "ain't no use knockin;
there's no paper on this side either."
