There are a number of threads here dealing with oil questions, you might try searching for them.
In short though, how it works is basically the same as it does with a car. You don't want to use synthetic to start with though. I've heard people recommending switching after a few thousand miles at the earliest. I'm far from an expert, but something about the synthetic oil doesn't allow the engine to break in properly.
As far as everything else just do a search
and you'll get a lot more detailed information than I can give.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
