Obvious Truth

 

Special Counsel John H. Durham

Pilgrim, the Michael Sussmann trial has revealed that not only is he guilty … but so is the FBI, Hillary Clinton, her campaign execs, Obama and his posse … and, depressingly, very much of our Deep State. If the accountability for this corruption stops with this trial, our country may never again be noble. — Fletcher


And Pilgrim, much of America knows not of this festering pustule because many of our media are also complicit with the above cockroaches.

“Hell Frozen Over” Reprise

 

Reprise … originally published on this bog in 2016.

In that I am tutoring chemistry of late, I am reminded of this entry that was originally published in my blog Junkier Science in 2006:

The following is 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 anonomous 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 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 THE ONLY "A".

President Biden has good intentions. He believes that we must go through an “incredible transition’ away from fossil fuels … see: Our Incredible Transition. Unfortunately, we must do it on his schedule … which is by tomorrow. If this destroys our economy or starts World War 3 …. well that’s just the price we will have to pay!


But what if your premise is wrong, you demented old fool?
