comment Can I hang a 60 lbs TV on 1 inch drywall?
Don't forget tremors and earthquakes. A mild shaking could cause damage that would not have happened had the mount been secured to studs.

comment How can I install 3 way switches that cut power to several 2 way switches?
I agree with @Tester101 - occupancy sensors might be a better bet here. Much less work and much less potential confusion. However yes, there's nothing that says you can't interrupt an entire lighting circuit with a three way switch.

comment How do I find and dispose of the dead body in my ceiling?
@NiallC. Fortunately it finally faded away, but that's definitely going to come in handy for someone else. I didn't realize it was such a common problem.

comment How do I find and dispose of the dead body in my ceiling?
That's .. pretty much what I did, just sealed up all possible places I could find where the stench could be escaping. The smell is all but gone now. This is the correct answer in this case, if you don't want to bust up walls and ceilings, you better be prepared to wait it out. Several exterminators tried to find it, none could.

comment How do I find and dispose of the dead body in my ceiling?
@TheEvilGreebo The construction (even partition walls) are block and mortar, structurally each condo is isolated by a formed concrete wall. I don't think this is coming from my neighbors.

@TheEvilGreebo No, surprisingly no fly activity, I was hoping to see flies fly out of the joist cavity by now.

@NiallC. I'd really appreciate that, my last resort requires a lot of drywall patching which I'm not particularly good at doing.

@BMitch Alas, I tried that and even smelled a mop in the name of finding this. The mop has its own issues, but this isn't one of them.
