Wrong Parking

Only the drunk driver was hurt but this is no way to park your car.

Hell Explained By Chemistry Student

I was cleaning out my Yahoo mailbox when I came across this marble sent to me by my friend Linda in 2006. Still funny.

Hell Explained By Chemistry Student.

The following is an actual question given on a 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 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."

Photobucket - Photosuckit?

Had a great time yesterday on I registered there some months ago and the thing worked fine. Didn't do anything with photobucket for a month and yesterday I wanted to upload a few pics. And what do you know? They changed the software. Great! I could login but that was about it. Buttons for uploading didn't work, only the "new" uploader did. When I pressed that the thing said I needed Adobe plugin nr. 9 or something like that. So, downloaded plugin nr.9 and the thing still didn't work!! Argh! New isn't always better,... Photosuckit.

Albufeira Memories (7)

The villa. The place we originally booked but rather annoyingly didn't get because of 'overbooking'. (If you ask me the owner simply did that on purpose.) However, we managed after 10 days to get to the villa after some discussion. Huge house with space all around the building. Pool in the back. There were 3 bedrooms with 2 beds and a bathroom for every bedroom. The place can easily hold 6 people but if you throw in a bunk here and there you can double the people staying there. Kitchen was large, big dinner table and livingroom. There was a tv but the Portugese channels weren't that great. Lots of soap operas and no English channels. They do tend to show a lot of football matches and other sports. All in all it was a great place to stay at and it was right in the center of Albufeira with beaches and shops close by.

Yes! The pool. One, if not the best thing of the vacation in Albufeira. It's so cool. Wake up around 8 in the morning and have a coffee. Walk over to the bakery to get some fresh bread. Have breakfast. Freshen up. Then dive in the pool around 10 when it's already hot. Simply the best.
The bungalow where we stayed in is not really visible in the pic. It's behind the pool and you can only see the roof. In order to get there you had to take the stairs to the right of the pool. This was not the place we expected and later on we did move to our original booking which was even more awesome.
Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind owning a villa with a private swimming pool.

Bringing Light To Darkness, In Another Way

This guy is amazing. Poetry in motion. Work of art. Should be in the Guiness book of records. Seriously though, if you get mugged on the street and all you have is a lighter and 3 hours previously a spicey meal, this is the way to defend yourself. I foresee a brand new martial arts thingie - alternative way in selfdefense.

Albufeira Memories (5)

Cabo de sao Vicente, Cape Vicente for short. That's the most western tip of land in south Portugal. Very high cliffs that easily run up to 50 meters high. There is an old fort but it was closed off when I was there because of some reconstruction work. They also have a few stands there with clothes and trinkets. The landscape was very beautiful and rural. Hardly any trees or brush, probably because the wind pounds that place. Nice place to be at and take pictures. About one and half hours drive from Albufeira on the freeway and the cape was easy to find.

Pondered a bit about a subtitle to the blog and decided on some Latin. In the process I discovered Latin is really fun. Some words clearly relate to modern English words. The thing is however, it sounds really nice. Sophisticated somehow.
You can also make nasty words sound decent. Figuratively, using Latin is like doing your business on a golden toilet bowl or blowing your nose in a silk hanky. So decadent. I love it. Oh, and what the subtitle means - go figure.

Tax Evasion Sends Snipes Away

Wow. Just read that actor Wesley Snipes has been sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion. That is of course a mortal sin in most civilized Western societies. I mean, when you're a celebrity you can get drunk in your car and park it in a shoppingmall injuring a few people. You'll get a fine and mandetory therapy. Don't pay the government and get put away for a number of years.

It's clear what is most important.

Albufeira Memories (4)

Albufeira harbour, or Marina as the Portugese like to say. The shot is taken from the first place we stayed in. We had booked a villa but wound up in a bungalow of sorts (with our own private swimming pool). The bungalow was on top of a hill facing the sea and marina. Amazing views from that place although we weren't too happy with it since we expected something else, but we got to the other villa 10 days into our vacation.
The marina itself was still a bit underdeveloped in 2006 but I reckon a lot has changed by now. There's a promenade facing the harbour with shops and restaurants. There was also a nightclub but the entry fee, €50, was a bit to much for my taste. (I'm still Dutch you know.) Didn't see much people when I peeked inside so I guess that nightclub is aiming for the rich and famous who just sail in. Beyond the harbour (where the trees are) there's also a fine restaurant. We ate their the first evening and it started getting busy later on in the evening. People all dressed up nicely. The bill was nice too.

Albufeira Memories (3)

Ok. This shot was roughly taken at the center of the stretch of beach. (See first post&pic.) The sand on the beach was a bit larger in grain size. It's not like desert sand or the stuff you find in playgrounds. Feels a tad weirder on your feet.
Although the pic doesn't show it, some (large) rocks are just under the surf. There's no running into the water like a maniac. There's a good chance you'll get hurt and when I was there I saw a couple of people who had to be carried out the water by the lifeguards with their feet bleeding. Lifeguards wear a red trunk and white shirts, on the pic it's the fat guy center left.
There weren't any large waves when I was there but I read this week that a couple was caught off guard by a large wave and the woman was lost in the sea. They might have been standing on the peer you see in the pic. Another thing to note is that (when I was there) often there was a strong breeze coming from inland and if you're afloat on your airbed you can find yourself a couple of hundred meters from the shore in no time. No dozing off in the water. Ok. That's enough smart talk for today.

Bad Beer Commercial

Hmm. Somehow this doesn't work for me.

Albufeira Memories (2)

Shot taken from the other side of the beach. The beach is one of the few really flat surfaces you'll find in Albufeira since the town and surrounding areas are basicly one hill after another. Nonetheless the beach was a really nice place to be at. The rockwall was basicly sandstone and if you looked close enough you could find little fossiles within the stone.

Ah the memories. I was in Albufeira, Portugal in 2006. Wouldn't mind taking a stroll on that beach right now. :)

Great Beer Commercial

Couldn't have made a better beer commercial myself.

Here I go.

Hmm. My first attempt at blogging. May God have mercy on your souls. Well I'm sure it wont be that bad, maybe just a little at times. Ok how does this thing work...
