‘Cold as hell’ may be accurate sentiment, study says

Expressions like “cold as hell,” “snowball’s chance in hell” and “cold day in hell” may be more/less accurate than previously believed, according to a new study in Nature.

According to the study’s media release,

The inner core of the Earth is simultaneously melting and freezing due to circulation of heat in the overlying rocky mantle, according to new research from the University of Leeds, UC San Diego and the Indian Institute of Technology.

The study is based on a computer model so no one will be verifying any of this any time soon. But maybe a snowball does have a chance in hell after all?

  1. Fire and Ice by Robert Frost

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.
