    I used to get comments like this in grade school, to which my retort was that it didn't apply to nonbelievers, and even if it did, spending eternity with people like that would be my idea of Hell.  

    If I had the time, I would press on with a theory that Hell was a nightclub, given that the Devil has the best tunes and that everyone at all interesting was going there.   I'd say that I had a table reserved for me and my friends, which would horrify the fundie kids to the point that they would go away dumbstruck.  {chortle} I imagined something out of film noir, with music, dancing, glamorous people in fabulous outfits drinking alcohol and eating fancy food, high-stakes gambling, mobsters, and moral ambiguity galore.
