Many men had mothers who didn’t come through for them. Where a woman feels love for those who emotionally and physically support her, a man feels love in response to a woman's gracious, and loving reactions to him. The song writer , Eric Clapton once wrote -- "And then she asked me, 'do you feel alright?

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.
