comment Why are there only four elemental artefacts?
Without a statement from TLG it is impossible to say. The inspiration behind the elements could be the classical elements of earth, air (lightning), fire and water (ice), but this is pure speculation without an answer from LEGO themselves.

comment What's an effective strategy for purchasing large numbers of different bricks?
Welcome to this site! I hope you don't mind, but I've edited your question slightly to make it slightly less subjective, and therefore a better fit for this site.

comment Representing pregnancy on LEGO minifigs without a dome
I sincerely wish I understood what you were asking here, but I just don't get it. Are you trying to make a minifig look pregnant? I would generally ask for photos of what you have tried already, but in this case, I must admit that I'm a bit hesitant - I don't want to frighten the children! Please do clarify, what movements does the "fetal carrier" restrict (and what is one of those, anyway?) And why, oh why, did you put your the mother in a "pen" that looks like a jail cell? The mind boggles. :-) BTW Welcome to this site. I hope you find it useful.

comment Looking for information on a Lego manual I had as a kid
Sadly, I'm not certain that the model in the book was by Larry Page. Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Page) says that Page designed his LEGO plotter whilst at University. The Idea Book was published in 1980 when Page would have been about 7 years old. I don't doubt that a prodigious 7-year-old might come up with a clever LEGO design, but I'm not sure that he would be at University by that age.

comment Looking for information on a Lego manual I had as a kid
You're welcome. I absolutely loved this book, and was always fascinated by the plotter. I don't think that it is any coincidence that I enjoy a career as a programmer, and would site this model as one of the inspirations behind my vocation. I'm delighted to be reminded of it all.

That's an impressive bit of detective work!

comment Can I build a faster LEGO train motor?
10mph is nearly 4.5 metres / second. You're going to need a lot of track...

comment What is the easiest way to sell Lego sets for a good price?
@Zhaph-BenDuguid: I took the other question to be about the nature of the LEGO (mostly unsorted sets), whereas this one is more about good places to sell. For this reason, I don't think they're quite the same question, even though they are related. If we need to discuss this further, I suggest we take it to meta.

@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun: I've added a photo to illustrate (4), based on your description. Is that what you had in mind?

comment Are there any LEGO elements not being produced because of mechanical problem with the mould?
The 4 x 4 corner brick really isn't useful, and can almost always be substituted with other bricks. Given its limited utility, I imagine that replacing old moulds just isn't cost effective.

comment Will Lego Caboose (10014) work with Lego Cargo Train (7939)?
Narrow track is just 4 studs wide, whereas regular LEGO track is 6 studs wide. The range of narrow track is currently limited to curves and slopes: no points, cross-overs nor even straight narrow track(!) has appeared in sets to date. Here is an example of the narrow track: rebrickable.com/parts/85976/Train+-Track-Plastic+-Narrow+-Curve

comment How many styles of element separators has LEGO produced?
There's also the spanner (brickset.com/parts/?part=400626) which is used for removing tiles from dice in LEGO games.

comment Duplo Train Thomas?
For commercial reasons, TLG doesn't usually publish plans for their future lines. We can sometimes make an educated guess, but we can rarely know for sure.
