I've removed your post because it is basically half asking about straightforward definitions which you can easily google, and half asking for advice. Neither of which are what ELI5 is for.

[Indiana Jones] I'm on holiday in India. I was captured by some guys in face-paint and had my heart ripped out. Some guy with a whip just came in and freed me. I lost track of the guy who took my heart in the commotion, but I seem to be completely healthy. Should I go see a doctor about this? by derstherower in AskScienceFiction

Clearly you missed The Doctor being a woman now.

I can only assume you don't really follow the show, since that's been huge news for months and actually happened on Christmas.

Either that or you live under a rock, in which case I am forced to ask if there's room for more people under there because considering the real world, that's kind of inviting.

ELI5: How getting a tune for your car works? by Javagunner in explainlikeimfive

[–]sterlingphoenix[M] [score hidden]  (0 children)

In the normal, non-enthusiast world, a tune-up is something you go to a mechanic for. This is a very standard car maintenance procedure - you find a mechanic you trust and make an appointment for a tune-up.

You seem to be trying to get some kind of performance tuning that's not a standard thing, though. ELI5 is not the place for this, since this sub is geared (no pun intended) for simplifying conceptual questions, not "Where do I get this service?" type questions (or even HowTos, if you decide to do it yourself).

I'm sure there are subs for car enthusiasts, possibly even your specific make and model. I would try those. If you can't find a specific sub, you can ask for help on /r/findareddit.

Good luck!

You're turning the music off to avoid distractions. Not to see better.

ELI5: for the morbidly obese, why can't they be put in a heart slowing coma like hibernation and allow their bodies could feed off it excess fat? by Jurkboy1 in explainlikeimfive

Because that would take forever, be incredibly unhealthy, cost a fortune, and putting someone in a coma is always risky.

Questions similar to this have been asked before, please search before posting.

On the other hand, this is really a question common sense should be able to answer.

ELI5 how to work Reddit (no literally) by [deleted] in explainlikeimfive

[–]sterlingphoenix[M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

Your submission has been removed for the following reason(s):

ELI5 is not for:

Reddit help or questions about Reddit itself


Since you're new to reddit, my first piece of advice is "read the rules to any sub you want to participate in".

Also read Reddit 101.

Lastly, as for formatting, there's a link for Formatting Help right where you enter comments, and that has a link to a larger document that explains this.
