Funny story about hell...

The following is an actual question given on a University chemistry final exam.

The answer by one student was so “profound” that the professor shared it with colleagues via the Internet, which is why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.


Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law that 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 constant, the volume of Hell must 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 Sandra 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 endothermic 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 extinct…leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being - which explains why, last night, Sandra kept shouting “Oh God!”

Moving from Intention to Action...

My recent trip to Vienna in November gave me the opportunity to get inspired by a couple of very close friends. Their achievements and the way they have been shaping their dreams in the making were a slap in my laziness. Not only they hosted me and listened, but also invited me to be part of Solution, a conference with the theme that gave birth to this post, "moving from intention to action!".

I, very honored, accepted their invitation to be part of the conference team.

When I got back in Lisbon I couldn't help it but keep on thinking again and again in them, knowing that there was an underlying message between the lines... I was cracking my head trying to find it, but it was impossible... So I decided to give it a time and let it emerge.

And then, in front of me, appeared. "Moving from intention to action" I read in the mail I received, and I knew that it was talking to me, to ME!

It is time. I needed to start NOW!
How it is possible that I kept on finding excuses not to?
What was that that I was fearing/avoiding?
What is that that I want to start?
How alive is still my dream of the soul spa?

And questions kept on coming...

Today I can proudly say that Beautiful Individuals has come to life.

Check it out!

Or check the fan page in facebook and become a fan!

I know now what my role in Solution can be.

I have definitely moved from Intention to Action.

It will be awesome to see some of you in Vienna next year, apply!

Love tons,


PS: Thanks Hinnerk and Alexis, I truly love you.

All about a minute

As we grow up,

we learn that,
even the person that wasn't suppose to let you down,
probably will.

You will have your heart broken,
probably more than once and its harder every time.

You will break hearts too,
so remember how it felt when yours was broken.

You will fight with your best friend.
You will blame a new love for something the old one did.

You will cry because time is passing too fast,
and eventually lose someone you love...

take too many pictures,
laugh too much,
and love like you've never been hurt,
because every sixty seconds you spend been upset,
is a minute of happiness you will never get back...

É pra lá que eu vou

Para além da orelha existe um som, à extremidade do olhar um aspecto, às pontas dos dedos um objecto - é para lá que eu vou.
À ponta do lápis o traço.

Onde expira o pensamento está uma ideia, ao derradeiro hábito de alegria uma outra alegria, à ponta da espada a magia - é para lá que eu vou.
Na ponta dos pés o salto.

Parece a história de alguém que foi e não voltou - é para lá que eu vou.

Onde não vou? Vou, sim.
E volto para ver como estão as coisas. Se continuam mágicas.
Eu vos espero.
É para lá que eu vou.

Na ponta da palavra está a palavra.
Quero usar a palavra «tertúlia» e não sei aonde e quando.

À beira da família estou eu.
À beira de eu estou mim.
É para mim que vou.
E de mim saio para ver.
Ver o quê?
Ver o que existe.

Depois de morta é para a realidade que vou.
Por enquanto é sonho.
Sonho fatídico.
Mas depois - depois tudo é real.
E a alma livre procura um canto para se acomodar.

Mim é um eu que anuncio.
Não sei sobre o que estou falando.
Estou falando do nada.
Eu sou nada.

Depois de morta engrandecerei e me espalharei, e alguém dirá com amor meu nome.
E de lá volto para chamar o nome do ser amado e dos filhos.
Eles me responderão.
Enfim terei uma resposta.
Que resposta?, a do amor.
Amor: eu vos amo tanto. Eu amo o amor.
O amor é vermelho.
O ciúme é verde.
Meus olhos são verdes. Mas são verdes tão escuros que na fotografia saem negros.
Meu segredo é ter os olhos verdes e ninguém saber.

À extremidade de mim estou eu.
Eu, implorante, eu a que necessita, a que pede, a que chora, a que se lamenta.
Mas a que canta.
A que diz palavras.
Palavras ao vento?, que importa, os ventos as trazem de novo e eu as possuo.

Eu à beira do vento. O morro dos ventos uivantes me chama.
Vou, bruxa que sou. E me transmuto.

Oh, cachorro, cadê tua alma?, está à beira de teu corpo?
Eu estou à beira de meu corpo.
E feneço lentamente.

Que estou eu a dizer?
Estou dizendo amor.
E à beira do amor estamos nós.

Tristeza y decepcion....

La Iglesia Católica vuelve a destacar por la persecución de la homosexualidad, esta vez en Uruguay

Mientras en algunas confesiones se asiste a avances en la aceptación de la diversidad, los católicos de Uruguay promueven la no contratación del profesorado homosexual en sus escuelas

[08/09/2009] Durante el pasado verano, diferentes confesiones cristianas han dado pasos, algunos tímidos y otros más destacados, a favor de la normalización de la realidad LGTB, de lesbianas, gays, transexuales y bisexuales. Mientras tanto la Iglesia Católica continúa ahondando en la homofobia con ejemplos como la promoción por parte de la Conferencia Episcopal uruguaya de la no contratación del profesorado homosexual o la recogida de fondos en Maine para luchar contra el matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo.

El avance de diferentes confesiones cristianas, que debieran de servir de ejemplo a la Iglesia Católica, destaca por ejemplo con el nombramiento de altos cargos eclesiásticos a personas abiertamente homosexuales, como es el caso de la Iglesia Luterana sueca, que ha nombrado a una obispa lesbiana, o la diócesis de Los Ángeles de la Iglesia Episcopal (la anglicana estadounidense) que ha nombrado obispos a un gay y a una lesbiana. Esta misma Iglesia Episcopal autoriza la bendición de matrimonios homosexuales.

También es destacable la celebración, durante el Orgullo brasileño, de una boda múltiple entre personas del mismo sexo, oficiada por la Iglesia de la Comunidad Metropolitana de Sao Paulo. La Iglesia Evangélica Luterana de América, por su parte, permite la ordenación de pastores gays y lesbianas sexualmente activos en una relación de compromiso, aunque no reconoce el matrimonio, y la Iglesia Anglicana en el Sur de África acepta que los homosexuales convivan en “fieles relaciones de compromiso”.

Para Juan Antonio Férriz, coordinador del Área de Asuntos Religiosos, considera alarmante que "la mayor preocupación de la Iglesia Católica es perseguir la homosexualidad en el mundo, así lo demostró cuando se opuso la despenalización mundial en la ONU en diciembre de 2008, y así lo lleva a cabo. Parece ser que somos su enemigo, probablemente por una homofobia internalizada, ya que en el interior de la Iglesia existe el mayor porcentaje de homosexualidad, sobre todo sacerdotes, religiosos y religiosas y altas jerarquías. El problema es que no pueden visibilizarlo y lo viven a escondidas o reprimen sus sentimientos, lo que provoca en muchas ocasiones mayor resentimiento y amargura hacia quien lo vive con plenitud".
