-- David Benfell firstname.lastname@example.org ICQ 59438240 [e-mail first for access] --- There are no physicists in the hottest parts of hell, because the existence of a "hottest part" implies a temperature difference, and any marginally competent physicist would immediately use this to run a heat engine and make some other part of hell comfortably cool.
