comment What are the female parts called?
Interesting question. To help finding a good term, it would be useful with a good example to use this in a phrase. Do you have an example of use in a natural context?

comment What are the female parts called?
I think "slot" would be more descriptive of an open spot in a construction where a particular part fits.

comment What was the first set produced by The LEGO Group?
@Kramii: Godtfred Kirk Christiansen himself refered to the bricks with interlocking that was patented in 1958 as the "real" Lego brick (ref: 1958 timeline).

comment Are DUPLO blocks compatible with LEGO blocks in any way?
You are correct, but that fact does not prove that they fit together. As @Joe Wreschnig say in his answer, many "LEGO-compatible" bricks are not compatible with DUPLO, although they have the same volume (and "outer shape") as a LEGO brick.

comment Why doesn't LEGO bring back old series as they were “in the day”
This said, they also use some "old" parts in new sets. And I allways get a "nostalgic kick" when I see some old parts re-introduced in new sets.

comment Rebuilding the Millennium Falcon 7965 with unsorted bricks?
Lego is not a "one time build"-model. It's more like "build and enjoy, and after a wile destroy and use the bricks to build something else of your own imagination and after a while find the instructions of the original set and build it again, this time with the enhanced complexity of finding all the original pieces"-model. I'm afraid you just have to make the best out of it. With a big model like this, I understand your frustration, though - after a long building process...

comment What tool can get two 1x2 plates apart without damaging them?
Fingernails are great - I use it a lot, but fingernails tear easily, so I love your suggestion for using a guitar pick. +1
