Which hell did you have in mind that is so plainly spoken of as a "real place"? Sheol (Hebrew for the grave)? Hades (Greek for the grave)? Tartarus (not forever, not for people)? Gehenna (trash heap outside Jerusalem)?
Yes, those are all spoken of as "real places". None of them are plainly a "place where people go to live forever while they're being tortured", which is what "...much of what modern Christendom believes about hell..." and which is derived from Dante et al and not from the Bible.

More on the stupid code:
Some_Func, which is called at the end, INSERTs the new batch number to the log TABLE and includes an EXCEPTION block catching DUP_VAL_ON_INDEX and OTHERS.
I think Disney owes me about $100 billion for this terrible VHS of "The Black Hole". Plus, it's really grainy.

Lame idea, the government is full of people unqualified to wipe their own asses, let alone make financial decisions. I give Congress and the Senate as examples.
Popular consensus amongst Democrats and Mac owners.
Well, if you're not as clever as Al was, you get a congressional hearing over "putting it in", ask Bill.
Just a play on "just putting the head in" as legislators do daily. I suppose he could have said "introduced legislation", but I doubt he waits to be introduced before "putting it in".
