ELI5 provides easy-to-understand answers to a wide range of questions, using simple language and analogies to break down complex topics.

Explain Like I'm Five (ELI5) is a website that aims to demystify complex topics by providing clear and concise explanations in plain language. The site is based on the idea that if you can explain something to a five-year-old, then you truly understand it. Users can submit questions on a variety of topics, and the community of contributors provides answers using analogies and everyday language to make complex topics accessible to everyone. Whether you're interested in science, technology, economics, or politics, ELI5 provides a welcoming and informative space for people to learn and explore complex topics.
