Also, if you ever figure out why poets/bards/dancers just randomly start butchering people/getting butchered, please don't fix it, I love never knowing when a dance party will turn into a slaughter.

Just unleashed my dragonfire trap on a goblin siege.  Which had the unfortunate side effect of melting my 3 supposedly dragonfire-proof dolomite bridge controlling the trap.  Im guessing the reason here is that continuous dragonfire is just too much for any sort of material :/

Luckily my 4th bridge is okay though, because it's the only thing between the dragon and a fort full of drunken dwarves atm.
Dolomite is magma-safe, not dragonfire-safe. Any metal is generally dragonfire safe, unless the dragonfire ignites a nearby object which heats the metal sufficiently before burning away. (I.e., don't use tin.)

Well, a goblin walked through a weapon trap. 6 large serrated disks. Cut off all his toes and fingers except a fifth and third finger. Seriously? It targeted toes!

Just found out that you can designate digs across multiple z-levels.

*Face. Bloody. Palm*

This reminds me of when I first discovered z-levels in the first place....

My site is rich of bituminous coal and gypsum.

Too bad that I play humans, who, apparently, dont know how to use these two materials!

Too bad because that's all my site has. It said it has close-to-surface-metals, but I only find gypsum and bituminous coal.

I dont have too many metal items and my soldiers have to fight soviet recruit style, one has a weapon and another waits that he dies... And my best equipped warrior with mail armour and metal helmet went into prison (she killed four guys while tantruming) and then berserked, meaning I can't get his stuff back without her killing rest of my wannabe-soldiers. Psst, is there a way to get her gear without releasing & killing her?

If she is in a cage just mark the cage and it's contents to be dumped d-b-d click on the cage or draw a box around it. Then go to the look command (k) show the cage and remove the dump from the cage. Your Humans will come and strip her nekkid, and have a great time doing it. She then can be released, if you are lucky she will not brain punch everybody before somebody with a weapon manages to kill her. Pitting her in a smothed natural wall pit, on on a 10z drop works fine as well.

Before i had figured out how to make an execution drop shaft, i tried to drop 20+ goblins down a 7-ish z shaft. The first few were taken out by the traps. The rest scared my peasents and mauled a now orphaned kitten, until my malita finaly killed them. With lots of causualties of course.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

... And this is me forgetting that drawbridges, unlike floodgates, are lowered upon being built. All while a Weremonitor decides to attack my new fort as soon as the first caravan leaves.

Use charcoal instead of coal and splints instead of gypsum. Splints are easier to get than casts anyway :P

The best way to demonstrate it to him is take a save of 40 year old fortress with 150 dwarves in it on a good sized embark with a volcano that just breached the circus and install it on his gaming rig and watch it bring his rig to its knees.

That doesn't sound like incredibly helpful advice for a guy that has both of the resources, I've never played as humans so I don't know what the limitations are, but if you want to find metals, you could always mine out the entire z layer until you find the ore... or at least dig corridors going to the map edges to see if you strike anything...

Was watching Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring and couldn't stop thinking that the mines of Moria were a dwarf fortress from Dwarf Fortress.
Small hard to get into entrance, forgotten beast, Titan, magma, they dug too deep and hit the !!FUN!! Layer, and of course- dwarves

I love to carve fortifications into a pathway and let all the passersby gaze at the glory that is the boneway.  Once it gets into the fortification, it isnt coming out.

We finally passed the 9th set of one thousand facepalms. The next one with bring us to...

...wait for it...

OVER NINE THOUSAND!

As for a facepalm, I forgot a roof in an evil biome with clouds. There is now a zombie ox with at least 14 and possibly up to 22 kills from two reclaim attempts living in my fortress.
