Many insects and animals lays many eggs at a time because some of them remain alive and most of them die, for example cray fish lay million of eGgs but some of its youngones snatch out from the egg. If every egg become new young one then whole sea will become full of cray fish :)

at 5'2 113 lbs, how can you possibly have really big waist/belly/thigh? I have a skinny friend who is 5'2 and 118 lbs and its a little scary how skinny she is. The diet plan you have can work, for sure. Unfortunately, I just would not recommend it due to a slight problem. It includes all the essential nutrient groups (fat, carb, vitamins, protein, minerals) except for fat. At 15 years old, your body still needs fat. Actually, you need fat at every stage, but it's especially important for a teenager. This is not a pamphlet. I do mean it. I dont know if you are male or female, but your body mass index is within "average" range for either gender. I can tell you right now, the "average" is actually below average. I am 5'11, 185, male, i can see my 6 pack but under the same BMI i'm actually over weight. I can tell you right now i am well within 10% of the population when it comes to fitness and health. What i am saying is that you are not fat. Especially considering as a teenager you're burning up a lot of fuel and energy. Fat is actually an organ in your body. It produces essential hormones and serves other vital functions. Totally depriving yourself of fat will cause effects you wont want. Delayed or stunted growth (in height as well as other things), not to mention malnutrition and its side effects. Sorry i'll get back to the actual diet proposal. Veggies, as long as you eat a variety can provide you with essential nutrients and vitamins. Oatmeal can provide you with some carbs, but there is a catch. You need enough carbs in your diet. Not too much, obviously, but you need enough of it to maintain a healthy blood sugar level as your brain needs a constant flow of glucose (blood sugar). Fish and eggs are good sources of protein. Just make sure you eat enough of it. I think the recommended diet means like 3 portions per day. Might be more if you are a serious athlete. There's cases to be made for the occasional red meat or poultry, but if you dont eat it, it's not a big deal. It does not matter how many meals a day you eat. It matters overall in a day how much in total you eat. Honestly, as someone who has been to countless nutrition seminars (for athletic purposes and dieting purposes) and who studies this stuff, I think although this plan could work (with addition of a little bit of fat). I myslef would just propose another plan. Cut out the junk food and sodas and just go jogging a couple of times a week. I know running sucks and msot people dont like it, but it's just so damn effective. If you do that, you should see an overall increase in your health. Think about it, if you are eating healthy food, how many calories do you think you can eat? By healthy food i mean no processed, no junk food, no fast food. That will (and does) translate into lower body fat. The most weight i ever lost was when i stopped eating the crap and just started running a little bit. And please do keep in mind you need your calories. If you seriously under do it, then you go on a slippery slope with nutritional problems. I am not suggesting you WILL be bulimic or anorexic, i'm just saying at 5'2, 113, you're well off. One last thing to consider. At your age, you still have some "baby fat". You will lose this weight as time goes on, without the addition of a strict diet plan.

It takes a great amount of body resources to produce eggs. In nature it is best to produce as many as possible at one time to ensure the survival of the reproduction result. Most insects die afterwords. The care and feeding of fowl takes many weeks and the survival of the young is very low. If there are several eggs in the clutch the odds are better that one of the hatchlings making it.

to increase the chance of the offspring will survive and to avoid the species gets extinct. Those animals live in a frightening environment and many 'hunger' predators are waiting to eat the eggs. eg, if my name is LOL, and i lay only one egg. So, i only one children, and i don't even know how to make sure my children will survive, Many insects doesn't take care of their children. BUT, if i lay a lot of egg, which means there's a lot of children. there must be 10 out of 100 children survive sorry hope you understand since English is my second language =(

Because not all of the young survive. If they only laid one egg, the hatchling would have a high chance of dying, so they lay many eggs. Even if they lay one thousand eggs and 2 survive, it is better than having no young survive at all.

OK. I will try to answer your questions. But in order not to be complicated, I may have to be a bit wordy. Lets assume the windows are closed. They do not have to be, but it makes it clearer what is going on in the car. When the car starts from a stop, the air in the car is not moving, and let us say that the insects are hovering in the air, just in the middle of the car. When you begin to accellerate, both the insects and the air shifts towards the rear of the car, just like a car-full of balloons would shift backwards if you accellerated. The balloons would move back and get a bit squeezed together, ready to spring forward again. The air pressure increases in the air to the rear, and drops slightly in the air in the front of the car. This is a little complicated, but you can see that if there was a tub of water in the car, it would slosh towards the back of the car - and it would stay sloshing, but 'leaning' backwards, as long as the car continued to accellerate. The air does something like that, but instead of sloshing, the part under more pressure - the part being rammed into the back window - gets slightly compressed. (The back of the car now is pushing the air mass, accellerating the air mass forward.) And then this pressure in the back of the car tries to expand forwards in the car, and it in doing that, it accellerates the air and the insects forward. So the energy the motor has produced is transferred to the air by the pressure of the rear window, and that air pushes the air in front of it, and so forth, and even the insects eventually get pushed along. They may not get pushed along 100% - they may have to do a little flying to catch up with the moving air - but the air does most of the work. The insects are not getting a free ride. The car's engine is moving the cars body and that is moving the air and the insects. If you measured the energy that it took the motor to bring the car to speed, you would see that there would be a difference with and without the insects. Yes. OK. I lied. You probably would have a very VERY difficult time getting a measurement that precise. But it is really what is happeneing. Next is the question of the plane taking off or not taking off due to the earths rotation. This is a question of relative motion. There are two points that are interesting here. The first is what it takes to get a plane to fly, and that is the speed of the air over the upper surface of the plane's wing. To get the plane to fly, to lift, you only need to move the plane, say, 250 miles faster than the air, and since the air is not moving with regard to the ground, you only need to get the plane to move at 250 mph with regard to the groound. The other point is that you are moving, when you are in the air, relative to the air. And if the air is not moving relative to the ground, then you are also moving at that same speed relative to the ground. So it really does not matter if the ground is moving - rotating - or not. Just as it does not matter that the planet is revolving around the sun, or that the entire solar system is moving in a galaxy that is moving relative to other galaxies. The concept of relative motion is not so easy if you are not accustomed to it, but it is a matter of common experience: when you are in a train or plane and get up to walk around, you can notice that even though the plane or train is moving very quickly, you can walk back and forth with 'the usual' effort. Well, who knows? Maybe I managed to express it clearly.
