comment What is the best way to rebuild Lego sets?
Heh, some people would call 20 sets a good day at the LEGO store. That said, at least one LEGO nerd I know keeps his collection mostly sorted by color and uses ziplocks to keep the parts sorted too, so he basically has large boxes of a given color with a bunch of baggies in it.

comment What are the measurements of the different Lego instruction booklets?
Are we counting all the way down to single page instruction sheets? Then we have the wire spiral-bound instructions for the Imperial Star Destroyer (10030) that are roughly 12"x16" and over 200 pages...

comment Looking for Adult LEGO
Nanoblocks are nowhere as good as LEGO. Clutch power is pretty weak and any piece bigger than 1x1 allows pieces under it to slide around.

comment What are the female parts called?
The underside of a 1x1 brick? How about "The square version of the tube that is the bottom of a 1x1 round brick"?

comment Trying to ID a piece.
I got lucky. I acquired several a while back and had to find out what they were and went digging on BrickLink. Still haven't figured out what to do with them...

comment Selling custom LEGO image mosaics using original LEGO bricks without breaking LEGO's Fair-Use Policy
Plenty of Etsy stores use LEGO to make jewelry and other items for sale, including one run by a former LEGO professional builder.

comment Does knolling help or is it just part of the fun?
One advantage to knolling is you can find out if there are pieces missing BEFORE you start building.

You could make the rack double wide, like a fine trailer home.

I don't know who bothered to down-vote this answer, but even Iain Heath likes this method. brothers-brick.com/2013/06/30/…

comment What tool can get the Technic pin out from a connection closed in the other end?
Hard to argue with results, but I'm reluctant to apply metal tools when plastic will do. :)

comment LEGO Set 10188 Help on Step 160
This gets my vote as possibly the most fiddly construct in an official LEGO set, but it sure is worth it once you manage to get it together.

comment How many different colours of LEGO bricks are there?
Maybe if you quantified 'recently'. There have been some new colors in the past few years, especially with the Friends line. There are also 'old' colors in new shapes, like the pink and purple leaves in the Elves line.

comment The most amount of pieces [ever] per set
Well the question Ambo mentioned talks about the set with most pieces, Taj Mahal. The most pieces for an actual Technic set is 42009: Mobile Crane MK II.
