Here is only one example, I have more.

When the Mariners win the world series, you know hell has frozen over.

Aww cheer up Janeway :)

PS If I die and get sent to Heaven, I'll know Hell had frozen over some time prior to that (and there'd be a little sign on the gates of Hell reading "temporarily out of order, we apologise for the inconvenience").

If the Cincinnati Bengals or the Cleveland Browns even make it to the superbowl, it is a cold day in hell, if they win the superbowl, well then, hell must have frozen over.

When Zorro takes a vow of celebacy and joins the priesthood.

Or when Nayt gets laid.

Either equally improbable event will do.

I was actually thinking of starting My own religion that is a little more sex-friendly. I could technically become a priest. I have been informed Satan has put in an order for Parkas..........Z

The key, dear Zorro, was the vow of celebacy.

THAT would be the improbablilty causing hell to freeze over.

Much like the improbability drive, hell will freeze over, when the likely hood of hell freezing over becomes the lowest it can possibly be.

Alternitivly, when the majority of the world would rather watch Top Coder [ [url]http://www.topcoder.com[\url] ] (which would be televissed then), I enter the compition and win and I am worshiped as a god.

All events mentioned above would also be result of the invention and use of the improbability drive.

I could take the vow, being a terrible liar I wouldn't last too long. Do I have to stick to it or can I forget it after a couple of weeks like I did My resolutions?........Z

Here's a few signs that you know Hell has frozen over (Or it's very, very cold down there).

-I upgrade my computer, and it works, first time.
-I get my internet connection working in Linux.
-Any plan that I make actually happens or works.
-I have good timing.
-I get laid.
-I don't pay for it.

There, that should set Satan shivering...

I actually have TWO Maxtor Hard drives. The youngest one is just over a year old (been in constant use in an always on computer). The older one is, I believe, pushing 3. They've been working very very well for me.
