Let's make a homework help thread!:

Since TVtropes will ruin your life and absorb far too much of your time for you to do silly things like study, and we appear to have a growing number of student tropers (myself included), I think that this should be a thread. So, who wants to help Random not fail his senior year?

First question: What is the difference between HIV and AIDS?

HIV is the virus, AIDS is the disease.

HIV is the virus.

AIDS is the illness associated with HIV.

Ninja'd, but still keeping it.

Hmm... not really sure if you can help with my homework, since it's in Japanese.

On a side note, should we redirect TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Homework (or a variant) to TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life?

Thanks for the idea.

...anybody know how to predict shifts in chemical equilibrium?

You're looking for this person.
Anyone here speak German? Someone who might be willing to carry simplistic conversations with someone who sounds like a brain-dead 5 yr. old?

Oh dang, we seem to be getting more questions than we are answers. Quick, we must recruit some smart people if this thread is to survive!

I don't have anything to help with, but I couldn't help but notice:

Yes, homewark keeps your grades up! studying chocobo farming or what?

"predict shifts in chemical equilibrium" is a bit vague.

It is very vague but the question wasn't much better.

My genius sister explained it to me anyways.
You're looking for this person.
In what ways do Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche, and Freud break with or confirm the Enlightenment’s confidence in the progress of European civilization? Choose two sources to support your argument.

No help on this? For reals?

I can kinda speak German, Fedora, but if you sound like a brain-dead 5 year old you're probably beyond me.

Sorry Mellon. I'd help, but no thinking at the moment.

I have this despairing feeling that this thread isn't gonna help as much as we originally thought...

@Melloncollie, I actually started to reply to your post a couple of times but I don't know how helpful it would have been. And every time I start composing a reply I get to talking and forget the question. So just a couple of thoughts:

The work of the 19C couldn't have happened without the preliminary ground work of the Enlightenment. The shift away from understanding the universe in terms of God and describing it instead scientifically was freaking huge. And it launched an ideological battle that still hasn't been successfully resolved. See creationism.

And I have already gotten sidetracked by the cultural implications of Havelock Ellis' work on human sexuality and George Bernard Shaw's discussion of Lamarck's theory of homeopathic evolution.

So this is why I'm stopping now.

Edit: expand sentence

Love extends the boundaries of what people can accept, but don't depend on it.

@ The Fedora pirate - I can speak German too, but not much better than a severely battered six year old.

Neh, I need to work on my German grammar more than anything. Anybody good at that? Or integrating things using the substitution method?

Since German is my native language, feel fry to try your skills on me.
I don't mind bad grammar or spelling mistakes, after all, you have to deal with my English.

Query - what kind of homework topics will we specialize in?

Anything involving writing I can assist with. Some science I can aid with as well. I can aid with statistics and basic algebra. Just keep calculus away from me and I'll do my best to aid.
