On Heaven and Hell
A man and his dog were walking along a serene road, enjoying the scenic
beauty, when it suddenly occurred to the man that he was not alive. Suddenly, he remembered dying, and that his dog had been
dead for several years. He wondered where he was and where the road was leading them.
After a while, the two of them,
the man and his dog, came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of
a long hill, the wall was broken by a tall arch that shimmered in the sunlight. When he was standing before it, the man saw
a magnificent gate in the arch that glistened like mother of pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold.
He and his dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk behind the gate. When he was close enough,
he called out, "Excuse me, can you tell me where we are?"
"This is heaven," the man answered.
"Wow! Would you
happen to have some water?" the man asked.
"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have a pitcher of water brought
right up." He then gestured, and the gate began to open. He approached the man at the desk and asked, "Can my friend there
come in, too?"
"I'm sorry, sir, but animals are not allowed here."
The man hesitated for only a moment and then
turned and walked back through the gate and continued down the road. After another long walk, and at the top of another long
hill, he came to a dirt road, which led through a weathered farm gate that was standing open. As he approached the gate, he
saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.
"Excuse me!" he called to the reader. "Do you have any
"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there." The man pointed to a well shaded by a large tree. "Come on in."
about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to his dog.
"Sure, There should be a bowl by the pump."
and his dog went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler
filled the bowl and even before he quenched his own thirst, he set the bowl down for his dog. He then took a long drink himself.
They then walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree waiting for them.
"What do you call this place?"
the traveler asked.
"This is heaven," was the answer.
"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man
down the road said that place was heaven, too."
"Oh, you mean the place with the gold streets and pearly gates? Nope.
The man responded, "Well, doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?"
can see how you might think so, but we're just happy that they screen out the folks who'd leave their best friends behind."

A Minister Goes to Heaven
A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him
is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.
Saint Peter addresses the man wearing
somewhat sloppy clothes, "Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?"
guy replies, "I'm Jack Thomas Jr., taxi-driver, of Noo Yawk City."
Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says
to the taxi-driver, "Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
The taxi-driver goes
into Heaven with his robe and staff.
Then it's the minister's turn. He stands up tall and booms out, "I am Joseph
Snow, pastor of Saint Mary's Church, for the last forty-three years."
Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the
minister, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
"Just a minute," says the minister.
"That man before me was a taxi-driver, and he gets a silken robe and golden staff. Why, how can this be?"
looks to the preacher and says, "Up here, we work by results."
"While you preached, people slept. While Jack drove,

Heaven is Hotter Than Hell
The temperature of Heaven can be rather accurately computed. Our authority
is Isaiah 30:26, "Moreover, the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light
of seven days." Thus Heaven receives from the Moon as much radiation as we do from the Sun, and in addition 7 x 7 (49) times
as much as the Earth does from the Sun, or 50 times in all. The light we receive from the Moon is one 1/10,000 of the light
we receive from the Sun, so we can ignore that ... The radiation falling on Heaven will heat it to the point where the heat
lost by radiation is just equal to the heat received by radiation, i.e., Heaven loses 50 times as much heat as the Earth by
radiation. Using the Stefan-Boltzmann law for radiation, (H/E)^4 =50, where E is the absolute temperature of the earth (-300K), gives H as 798K (525C). The exact temperature
of Hell cannot be computed ... [However] Revelations 21:8 says "But the fearful, and unbelieving ... shall have their part
in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." A lake of molten brimstone means that its temperature must be at or below
the boiling point, 444.6C. We have, then, that Heaven, at 525C is hotter than Hell at 445C. -- From "Applied Optics" vol. 11, A14, 1972

Today's question is:
It takes Mr. Rael one week to clone a Dr. Brigitte. It takes Ms. Brigitte
one hour to clone one press release. If Mr. Rael keeps cloning Dr. Brigittes, and each Dr. Brigitte keeps cloning press releases,
how long will it take Mr. Rael and the Dr. Brigittes to cover the surface of the earth exactly 37 times with press releases?
