Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Off topic but thought i'd ask...

If I uninstall Bitcoin and then re-install it, it still has my old wallet loaded... how come? Any way to stop this?

That is because it doesn't delete your wallet, that would destroy all the money in it if you didn't have a backup. Simple move the wallet and it should generate a new one.
