A simple game- ask a question. TPBM will answer it and question their answer.

Why is this forum called giant in the playground?
Because Rich Burlew said so. Why did Rich Burlew say so?
Because he thought it was cool. Why is the name Giant in the Playground cool?
And so on.

I'll start it: Why does the CW Samurai suck?

Why does a masterwork bastard sword not a samurai make?

Because a samurai must know how to handle it.

What does that mean, to handle it?

Presumably, that means they can put a handle on a sword.

But what kind of handle would they use?

A wooden one.

Why is wood called "wood?"

The etymology is complex, but consider this: the old name of Odin was Woden. Woden: Wood. He was ... there was some unpleasantness with Yggdrassil the World Tree. Tree: Wood. My best guess is that there is a connection between the word Woden and the word Wood, although which way around it was is beyond me.

Is Woden a root word for wood, or is wood a root word for Woden?

A bread knife, of course.

But... what kind of bread?
