Dr. Stupid has twice spoken at length on the topic of the equator. Please visit Dr. Stupid's first response here. After you read that response, then please read this response.
Now that you've read those two, now it is time for Dr. Stupid to address your questions.
Your first question is "Why is the equator hot", and Dr. Stupid feels, that even with the use of visual aids, Dr. Stupid is under the impression that you're not going to understand. Dr. Stupid is therefore recommending that you use a method that Dr. Stupid calls "Imposed Osmosis". Using this method, it is recommended that you place a textbook on your head, while another person beats upon this book with an object such as a baseball bat or sledgehammer until either the book, your head, the pounding implement or more than one of those objects fail. At which point, the operation will be complete and chances are, no further learning will ever be required, because Dr. Stupid would estimate that the new level of your vocabulary will be saying the word "pudding" over and over again. However, with any luck, any information on the equator you might have needed may have been pressed into your head.
Dr. Stupid has noted that you need to narrow this down into steps. What steps are you referring to? You claim you need to come up with two things and need to come up with two more. Dr. Stupid is not a part of the Psychic Friends Network. In fact the whole Psychic Friends Network was proven to be a fraud when Dionne Warwick's psychic friends failed to warn her that a natural disaster was going to hit her Costa Rican home and destroy it. With friends like that, who needs enemies, right? They should have seen this coming a long way way. Regardless, without you sharing information with Dr. Stupid, how is Dr. Stupid supposed to know which two you have? Maybe that's all there is?
You asked about the equator business. Are you talking about financial transactions that occur on the lattitude line specifically, or perhaps in your haste to gather information, you are actually trying to gather information on the country of Equador? I am sure that country has other business that is not related to the trade of narcotics and other drugs through North American and the rest of the world?
Then again, you are asking why is the equator hot. You have failed to mention which connotation of "hot" you are referring to. Are you asking about the radiant temperature of the equator? Are you talking about why people are so attractive in that zone of the planet? Or is this more in the Paris Hilton sense where something trivial and stupid being trendy is suddenly "hot". Again, you fail to provide any usable information to ensure that proper communication is taking place.
Lastly, Dr. Stupid notes that your name is Meloady2. My goodness, there are two of you stupid people running around freely? It's bad enough there was one of you, but now two? This does not make the world a better place, since apparently neither of you know what an equator is, much less a spell checker. Of even greater concern is that you are looking to do research with the aid of a doll with an empty plastic egg for a head.
Dr. Stupid recommends that you run out to your nearest bookstore and order a world map, lifesized. It should be fun trying to fold it back up. That should keep you occupied for a few years. In the meantime, remember: first pants, THEN your shoes.
