Experts are passe. How refreshing is it to have someone who has no clue whatsoever (on any subject at all) at your disposal?

I'm here to take your questions.

Determine the slope of the curve 2x^3 + 2y^3 - 9xy = 0 at the point ( 1, 2 )??

An electromagnetic radiation has a frequency of 8.11 x 10^14 Hz. What is its wavelength in nanometers...?

5.6*10^-5/7*10^-10?

Which steps and catalyst+conditions are involved in the conversion of iso-butyl-bromide to n-butane?

Listen. I can't do your homework for you. You need to take responsibility for your own education.

I'm either scared or proud that I immediately knew how to do 3/4 of these (chemistry is not my strong suit), and felt tempted to return the answers. I have my own hw to do though.

Please. One at a time, people.

1. It's what happens when mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy.
2. Regular or Spoon-size?
3. Never had a flat. Lost a wheel once and the Joker got away.

Farvergnugen. You can say it in America, but if you say it in Germany, you'll be beaten with a pipe.

I think that is becuase "farvergnugen" roughly translates to "if you beat me with a pipe I will not shine your lederhosen with non dairy dessert topping"

They claim it means "at one with the road". So, I suppose "roadkill" works.

Irrational fear. In reality, they'd pack up your bike before stretchering you out.

fahrfergnugen is the word you are thinking of I believe. Change a letter or two and you end up getting beaten with a pipe or having your lederhosen smeared with cool whip.
