Yes. It's less strong than rofl, more equivalent to "lol" (which is also used in french).
"rofl" <=> "ptdr" (exploded with laughter)

I don't know the Russian one.

It's equivalent to ":)"

What do you mean, wooden wall frames?

... I wonder who started the idea of just sticking pipes and everything in between bricks, and pouring cement all over that. Granted, they don't need insulation in the tropics, but there's not much space to not screw up.

Framing. The parts that support the other parts that you actually look at, whether you're inside or outside the structure.

Um, yeah, that was a bit off the serious side of the scale. Most homes in tropical asia simply have brick walls with no frames, and they hope people survive in them. I guess it might be due to the humidity and termites here.

Forgive me for forgetting the word "typically". Nevertheless, most building codes in the US are based off of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internatio ... lding_Code.

Although states/municipalities can enact their own building codes, many use something derived off of IBC. Many local modifications have to do with historical locations, environmental prohibitions, or region specific requirements. It is mostly cost prohibitive these days for a municipality to develop and maintain its own code from scratch, although I am sure there are many municipalities that have legacy codes in place that have not been updated.

Well, you also have to face the framing. I am familiar with them being 18" apart. While one could get through a space that narrow, tripping over the electrical laced through the walls, it would actually be a lot of work trying to get anything out of the house with you, unless you cut the framing too. Plus, there would be the noise and effort of moving all that siding, foam board, insulation, drywall and possibly using a saw on the studs.

If you're that interested in getting in - Brick + Window = Entrance. Far less sound, mess, and trouble. There's reasons cops kick in doors and don't go through walls. It's easier, and doors are weaker points of entry than walls.

Well, once you're in the door is generally unlockable. I'm obviously not advocating breaking into people's houses, it's just one of those things that still strikes me as odd. The walls of my house are 2 foot thick stone.

Obviously it's faster. But again, it's the concept of it that gets me. It's fairly trivial to make it extremely difficult to break through a window or door, but you have to consider that your entire house could be an entry point.

Well.... yes? For certain definitions of the word Entry Point. It's going to take more than a half hour to do it, and the person(s) doing it are going to have to be careful so as to not accidentally chop through a power cable as that might kill them, and it's going to be noisy as fuck.

I mean, if you know of a block of summer homes, sure. But a lot of those you could break into just by having a couple of guys all wearing orange hard hats, toolbelts, and carrying ladders and some building supplies, via the whole "They look official and seem to be working, I'll just ignore them" defense.

And really, at that point, it'll be easier to go through the window frame than anything else. No, not the special shatter-proof glass in the window. Rip the entire frame out of the wall. Glass is still unbroken, and you're inside.

It's like anything else on the planet - if someone really really wants in, they're getting in. Your only real defense is to make getting in so time consuming that it's impossible not in that they cannot make progress, but that in they'll be caught before they're done.

Also, at this point, standing in front of the house picking the front door is less suspicious.

I don't really see how it would taken more than 5 minutes, and it wouldn't really be loud. But it's not like we're going to go out and test these things so it's all just speculation.

To do it in less than 5 minutes, it's going to be loud as hell, because you're either using a sledgehammer to bash it down (and ever blow will make the whole house shudder enough to alert occupants, unless it's a giant mansion or something, I guess), or something like a chainsaw to saw it out.

No one inside will be unaware of what's going on, and the neighbors will also be pretty much clued in that something is going down.

?

In my hypothetical case, all the wall materials are easily cut with basic hand tools. I don't know specific building codes in the states; I can only rely on my own anecdotal evidence of these being used in one particular area over there.

If you are talking about cutting an exterior wall you need a lot more than some small hand tools. You are going through siding (either aluminium, wood or vinyl) then thin insulation under that, followed by the wall boards, then the framing, more insulation and drywall on the other side. You could do it with hand tools if you have all night. If noise isn't an issue a circular saw or a sawz-all would be my weapon of choice. Again make sure you don't get lucky and find a electric, gas or water line.


A question for the world. What is the impression people from outside the United States (or from a different region of the US) have of the US state of Michigan. When I was in California everyone thought I was probably some backwoods machine gun and compound bow touting right wing maniac like Ted Nugent (who is from Michigan). When people get that idea I usually remind then that Detroit is in Michigan too and they usually throw their wallet at me and run away :sigh:.

I tried to explain to a 17 year old kid in South Carolina where Michigan was and he couldn't tell if I lived in Canada or the US, after about 15 minutes of explaining I gave up. There is the US geography education at work..... So anyway what is everyone's thoughts on the mitten state? (hint it's that place between Detroit and Chicago and I don't live in Canada).

On Michigan: I am aware it exists as a state in the USA. I think I even know where it is? (It's the one that's on that big body of water, near Canada, sorta in two parts?)
That is all.
I have no preconceptions about what Michigan or its people are like. It is basically just a word to me.

I'm similar to Simone, my main knowledge of Michigan is 'between all those lakes, and with that funny extra bit at the top near Wisconsin/Canada'. I assume, but have no knowledge other than my knowledge of that vague area, that it's mostly a mix of farmland and forest. Not being a southern state (or Utah) gets it the classification of 'probably not crazy', too.

I never remember that Detroit is in Michigan, but the wretched hive of scum and villainy thing is the only thing I really know about it. And it has a lot of motor industry stuff. Presumably staffed by hardened criminals.

My perception of Michigan is probably pretty close to what it is: lots of urban centers with substantial urban depression surrounded by fairly standard suburbs and exurbs, with large pockets of rural and woodsy areas in between. I figure the people range from urban thugs to lake-shore snobbery to bread and butter suburbanites to crazy woodmen with guns and Jesus.

Also, Tim Thomas is from Michigan, and though I question his politics, he's basically the biggest badass on the block.

To be fair, the Dracula thing has only come up from school age kids for me. A more common mistake is thinking Philly is a state.

Shit, I'm from the US and it's "one of those countries by the Great Lakes." The only reason I can distinguish it from the others is because Detroit is there.

At least, I hope I can find it!

I've been there! 12 years ago, so I don't remember much ...

But I do know it's one of the first states of the US, so there's a lot of stuff there that relates to the early years. Was Philadelphia the first capital or am I remembering that ridiculously wrong?

*checks*

Well, it was *a* capital, so I was pretty close.

Pennsylvania. North-Eastern (I pretty much group New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and both Virginias into the same 'bloc' when I think of US geography). Heavy industry, coal mining and steelmaking, some big cities (Pittsburg/Philly), and isn't Penn State quite a big college football team?
