** I don't think they did. They just remembered his tail was a general weak point.

* When Goku and Krillin are training, they have to plow a field with their bare hands every day for eight months. The fields are pretty big, and they get bigger every day. How does the island not run out of fields to plow? Do they do other things like sow and pull weeds and rocks?

*** The Dragon Balls move everywhere after they spread around the world. The pirates probably never found it; the Dragon Ball went to them.

** While [[DeathIsCheap death eventually becomes quite cheap]] for Goku and his friends, it's clear that to the majority of other people, death is known as a very final thing (something Yajirobe says confirms this when Shenlong dies or in another occasion), all living beings must go through, the circle of life and all that stuff people say even in the real world. Old people like Grandpa Gohan in particular are prone to think like this; according to research in real life, they are actually the age group with least anxiety about death. He had lived a good and long life, died due to an unfortunate accident (Upa's father died murdered, so his resurrection is probably a different matter in Goku and the other's minds) and he's fine with it. His grandson and friends didn't stop their lives because of it and by that time in the manga Goku has a bunch of friends who'll never leave him alone; and now that they learnt that death isn't some kind of dark void they also know he's always watching over them from the afterlife. Seriously, not wanting to come back from the dead doesn't mean he loves anyone any less. Like he said, they'll all meet again some time.

** As I recall, Roshi was retired when Goku and Krillin turned up at his island, and basically only trained them as a favour to Grandpa Gohan. Was he tired of having them around? Oh, absolutely. He wanted to go back to his life of sunbathing, drinking, and admiring (perving) on sexy women without having two noisy kids running around.

**If one wanted to resurrect someone dead for over a year and they didn't have Frieza's tech at their disposal, they'd need Porunga, and to use the multiple wishes to circumvent this (One to request to bend the rules of resurrection, the other to actually resurrect the individual)

* Expanding on the above, why doesn't Roshi continue to train Goku after the tournament? He's taught them the "basics", in terms of increasing their strength and skill, but he could have taught them a lot more, not only techniques but also tactics like how to anticipate an enemy's attack (something Goku later learns from Karin). Instead he says he's taught them all they can and they're on their own. Is he just a really lousy teacher? Is he tired of having them around?

** DragonBall has really weird variations in technology levels. Sure, there are flying cars and capsules that can carry portable houses in them, but who said credit cards exist?

*** Goku doesn't know much about girlsb, just that his Grandpa said he should treat them nicely. Presumably, his Grandpa tried to be more of a good influence than Roshi was.

** A guy like him? Death is the only thing he fear. He probably had that whole plan set up as a contingency: make a deal with some engineer promising him a vast fortune to rebuild him as a cyborg should anything happen to him. And though he likes to extort goods, he wouldn't dare renig on this deal because he just might need that engineer again someday.
