The bus is going down because it's just driven over a sinkhole and there's no road underneath it? :idiot:

Well, that's a bit too much of a hint. It's filled with helium and going up, the hot weather is increasing the effect of the lift enough for the bus to become airborne :idiot:

The ideal gas law is pV=nRT where:
p is pressure
V is volume
n is the number of moles of gas (how much gas there is)
R is the ideal gas constant (8.314 joules per Kelvin per mole)
T is the temperature

For the inside of the bus, which we assume to be sealed or all the helium would escape, as the temperature increases n and R cannot change (we have not changed the amount of gas and the gas constant is a constant value). Therefore, since the volume cannot change (the bus cannot get noticeably bigger or smaller) the pressure of the helium inside must increase.

Outside there is no constriction on volume and the air outside expands in volume, keeping approximately constant pressure ("atmospheric pressure").

Therefore, because the helium in the bus has increased in pressure relative to the air outside the bus, it can push back harder against the FSM's noodly appendages and rise into the air. QED :idiot:

Wesently I weseefed meny bottels weqwestin a hexplainayshun wegardin thee FSM’s holy scwipt fungshunn (ƒ) wiff particcarlar weferwence to is't effeck on leterers off thee alphabet. Dese qweries rrr a dwessed in thee arrghtatched add dendum . Fankye , ye welkum . NYBB.

FUNCTION ƒ ADDENDUM

This Addendum relates to the earlier released Dissertation and describes the effect of the FSM’s holy script function (ƒ) on letters of the alphabet and contrasts the differences between upper and lower case scenarios. Again we assume ƒ is “on” unless otherwise stated.

Function (ƒ) is active on the following list of lower case letters: a, b, d, g, o, p and q whereby a, b, d, o, p and q = I and g = II. The remaining lower case letters, c, d, f, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y and z equate to nil, praise be the FSM’s holy script.

Upper case letters: A, B, D, O, P, Q and R are subject to ƒ such that B = II and A, D, O, P, Q and R = I. The remaining letters, C, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z equate to nil, praise be the FSM’s holy script.

It should now be patently obvious why ZERO = zero = II; ONE = I and one = II; TWO = two = I; THREE = I and three = II; FOUR = II and four = I; FIVE = nil and five = I; SIX = six = nil; SEVEN = nil and seven = II; EIGHT = nil and eight = III; NINE = nil and nine = I; and TEN = nil and ten = I.

§ EXERCISES
Use Roman Numerals to show that:
one – ONE = I
TWO – two = nil
three + THREE = III
FOUR – four = I
8 + 8 + 9 + 0 = VI
8 + 8 + 9 = V

The most likely solution seems to be that the function 'f' appears to be defined as the number of enclosed spaces present in each letter, thus lower case 'g' in calibri is 2 ('II' in roman numeral notation), 'g' in arial is 1 ('I' in roman numeral notation), capital "G" is nil, "B" is 2 and "A" is 1, et al. Since 'g' is defined as 2 rather than 1, that implies calibri is an FSM friendly font.

The exercises all devolve to straight forward substitution and arithmetic, followed by conversion of the results into roman numeral notation.
