That's why you use that nifty tool you get free with some sets.
Somehow it could pull any two pieces apart.

Yeah... they didn't make that right away though did they?
I don't think I got my first brick seperator until I was at least 12.. so until then I had to seperate them the hard way, or have my mom do it for me lol
It didn't bother me all that much.

I always found that my teeth worked quite well.
If you wedged one of your front teeth between two pieces it was a simple matter to unhinge them.
I have 5 big tubs full of lego and instruction books, but sadly they're in Australia and I won't have access to them until next February.

Cool, a FAQ page.

And a 'The Tutorials & Terminology' board in the planning sounds good to!

Even THAT didn't work in some cases.
