The Scientific Explanation Of Hell – According To A Chemistry Student

Hell-frozen(PCM) A chemistry student gave one of the best answers we have ever seen when asked as the bonus question on a recent chemistry mid-term to explain whether or not Hell was exothermic (gives of heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat).

Most of the students answers revolved around the properties of Boyle’s Law which states gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed or some variation of that principle, but the one students answer blew all the other ones away! It is not wonder that they received an A+ on the exam!

You can read the answer below:

“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.’”

Man Claims To Have Not Showered In 12 Years


(PCM) A chemical engineer and MIT graduate named Dave Whitlock has made the startling claim that he has not taken a shower in 12 years all thanks to his daily regime of using live bacteria on his skin.  Sounds pretty gross to us, but he is swearing by his particular method.

Whitlock claims that he has made a spray that completely eliminates the need to take a shower. His company, AOBiome, created a live bacteria spray which Whitlock applies to his skin on a daily basis. The overall purpose of the spray is to restore the good bacteria to our skin that has been removed during modern day to day life.

The company claims that because we don’t spend as much time outdoors as we did in the past, users of the product are able to reduce their dependence on conventional products used for bathing and showering.  The name of the product is called “Mother Dirt” and should be applied to the users skin twice a day. It has no odor and feels just like water. The company hopes that their product could have the potential to eventually replace bathing all together.

We are not so sure about that, as majority of us enjoy a nice relaxing bath or an invigorating shower for reason’s other than just bathing.

Mysterious Superhenge Discovered At Famed Stonehenge Site


(PCM) England’s famed circle of bluestone columns known as Stonehenge has always been shrouded in mystery and now according to CNN, archaeologists have discovered that the mystery surrounding Stonehenge is even deeper than we imagined.

The archaeologists have discovered what they believe to be traces of an even larger stone formation, which they are deeming Superhenge located about three miles away from the original Stonehenge site.

The Stonehenge Hidden landscape team tells CNN that they made the discovery beneath Donington Wall also known as “superhenge” — one of the largest known henge monuments built before Stonehenge, which is believed to have been completed 3,500 years ago.

Ground-penetrating radar technology has discovered about 90 stones standing upright beneath the ground and an additional 3o stones standing in another area near the site.  The new stone structures that have been discovered are thought to be about 4,500 years old.

This will once again change the entire thought process when studying the origins of Stonehenge and further deepens the mystery surrounding it’s initial creation.

Upcoming Lunar Event Will Not Occur Again Until 2033


(PCM) Be sure to turn your eyes to the sky on the night of September 27 for your chance to catch a glimpse of the Super Harvest Moon total lunar eclipse.  It will also be the final eclipse in a lunar tetrad.

Don’t worry, we weren’t sure what a lunar tetrad was either, but we found that a lunar tetrad is a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row with no partial lunar eclipses in-between. Each lunar eclipse is separated by six other full moons. The lunar tetrad is a incredibly rare phenomenon and the next one may not occur until 2033.

The upcoming Super Harvest Moon total lunar eclipse will last for a few hours and will be visible from the eastern half of the United States.  A Super Moon gets is name when the moon is positioned at it’s closest point to Earth and appears to be about 14% larger than at it’s furthest point. A Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox, so having all these factors come together at the same time is truly going to be a sight to behold.

For those that wish to view the Super Harvest Moon total lunar eclipse, you can beginning looking up at the sky around 9:07 pm ET and in approximately an hour the entire moon will be eclipsed.

Relax! NASA Says A Giant Asteroid WILL NOT Destroy The Earth This September!


(PCM) Conspiracy theorists were in a tizzy as internet rumors began swirling that a giant asteroid was careening towards the Earth and that we were due for a global catastrophe that could possibly end human life as we know it. NASA has now put those fears to rest letting everyone know that as far as they know the world will not be coming to an end next month as they see no asteroid in sight that would impact the Earth in that particular time frame.

In a statement NASA says “There is no scientific basis — not one shred of evidence — that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates ( between Sept. 15 and 28, 2015)”. The rumors stated that the asteroid was scheduled to make its’ impact with the Earth somewhere near Puerto Rico between Sept. 15 and 28, 2015, destroying swaths of North, Central and South America in its’ wake.

There even happens to be a Near-Earth Object office manned by NASA whose job it is to watch, track and categorize any type of asteroids or comets that happen to pass by within 300 million miles of the Earth. NASA goes on to say that not a single one of the identified objects even has a slight chance of impacting the Earth anytime within the next century.

NASA is even currently hard at work on a protection plan for Earth should a crisis with an asteroid or other celestial body come close to impact called the Asteroid Redirect Mission. They are developing a “gravity tractor” technique that would be able to divert the asteroid from coming into contact with the Earth’s surface.

So, relax everyone! NASA has it covered and we can rest assured that global dissemination will not occur next month, at least not in the form of a flying space object!

Is It Possible That Gluten Sensitivity Doesn’t Exist?


(PCM) It seems now that the very same researchers who discovered evidence of non-celiac gluten sensitivity have recently discovered that it actually doesn’t exist. In fact their new findings are completely opposite to what was initially discovered. The researchers completed a follow-up study to the one that was completely back in 2011 that founded the theory that diets that contain gluten can be the cause of gastrointestinal distress in people without celiac disease, which is an auto-immune disorder fueled by gluten.

Gluten is a protein that is heavily present in food such as wheat, barley and grains. After the news of the findings back in 2011 that gluten could also cause health issues for people not suffering from celiac disease, the gluten-free food industry skyrocketed. Sales of gluten-free products could hit $15 billion by 2016, while on 1% of Americans actually suffer from celiac disease, nearly 30% are keeping a gluten-free diet.

The gluten protein is found in any normal diet for the average person, so researchers, no satisfied with the initial theory that gluten was the culprit behind the gastrointestinal problems that many people were suffering from decided to test the theory once again. Those who participated in the new research study were given  high-gluten, low-gluten, and no-gluten (placebo) diets, without knowing which diet plan they were on at any given time. In the end, all of the treatment diets – even the placebo diet – caused pain, bloating, nausea, and gas to a similar degree. It didn’t matter if the diet contained gluten.

The new study speaks for itself in proving that there was indeed no precise correlation between consuming gluten and suffering from gastrointestinal issues. In fact there could be other dietary triggers that have been wrongly interpreted as gluten-sensitivity that are the ultimate cause of the person’s gastrointestinal distress.   So, be careful of falling on the gluten-free bandwagon as the cause of your gastrointestinal issues could just be all in your head.
