An Exciting Test

This is a small test that I came across long time back. It has only four (4) questions, and you will be surprised about the results. I will publish the results in the next blog. By that time I hope that you have got your answers ready and jotted down. Please Follow the Instruction.

MAKE A WISH BEFORE STARTING

CAUTION ! Answer the questions step by step. Read on slowly and WRITE down your answers after careful thought. This is a serious questionnaire and will tell you a lot about yourself.

Question 1.
Place the following animals in an order according to your preference.
Cow, Tiger, Sheep, Horse and Pig.

Question 2.
Write a word that qualifies / describes each of the following.
Dog, Cat, Rat, Coffee and Ocean

Question 3.

Hell

This is only an excerpt from an answer give by a student to a question on whether Hell is Endothermic or Exothermic.

"First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate 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, lets look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there are 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 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. Of course, 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. "

I'm leaving it to you to guess the remaining part of the answer. If you want to know how the student concluded his analysis you can mail me at oddjams@yahoo.com.

Bhutan

If you got to Bhutan, a country which is predominantly Buddhist, you will find a lot of monasteries. And in almost all of the monasteries you will find a tower where you have to climb a substantial number of very steep and narrow stairs to get to the top. You really have to put in a lot of effort to get to the top. An when you get to the top, what do you find? A prayer hall? A temple with a magnificent figure of Buddha? A silent place for meditation? No. All you find is nothing. Just an empty space under a roof with the beams and struts that shoulder the roof. Then why climb all these stairs to get to the top? Is it to impress upon you that all your efforts in this world are in vain? Or is it something else. Being on a tight schedule I couldn't find out why.
