1. They are good for eating after doing homework
2. Digests stuff in people that do their homework
3. Food goes in after you do your homework and from then you know what happens.
4. It breaks down naughty students that don't do their homework.

I could continue, but i think you get my point...

ummm, I had those questions to and they are very hard. First of all it doesnt have the exact research for it and Second of all that person just needed help. I dont think you have to be that sarcastic about it.

That was certainly very funny, Andrew. I wonder if he got the point.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

we feel that everyone needs to do homework as part of a learning process, as the confucious saying goes, give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him to fish and feed him for life.

Many people are simply too lazy to crack open their textbooks or use google to search online. Remember, we are a forum for discussion.

THESE questions are too easy to be asked
1-man's teeth are adopted for crushing as well as for other words, we may say that these are adopted in suc a way that these have chraceristics of carnivores as well as herbivores
2-main function of stomach is to store food for some time and it also partly digest the food
3-third question is very long and should not explain that
4-because larger food particles are digested to simple diffuseable molecules
5-enzymes are globular proteins which are biological active .they increase the rate of biological reactions without themselves being used up
6-for stach...............amulase or amylopsin
for fat..................lipase
for protein..........pepsinogen or tripsinogen
7-they tremendously increase the area of contact with food
8-simple sugar is absorbed directly into blood wheras fats firstly, in the form of fatty acid and glycerole, enter the lecteal and then enters the blood

are u satisfyyyy

Another good candidate for homework thread.
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.
