comment What is シ●ブ, and why is it censored?
Apparently, it's really bad if kids get to see a slang term for drug spelt out on a subway ad, but totally fine if they get their fill of half-naked, boob-cupping, barely-legal models on the same ad. This. And not just for Japan.

comment chart for interrogative words
どの is not limited to 2 choices (どの季節が一番好きですか?). You were probably thinking of どっち. 何故 is also (and I think more modernly) read as なぜ.

@Tim: That's exactly part of the confusion. When the review of what you've learned is also preparation for the next, which word do you use in Japanese?
