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.

comment How can I install a ceiling fan where there is no ceiling box or wiring?
@TheEvilGreebo I'm writing an answer to this that I probably won't finish tonight. Finding links to the materials needed that don't lead to spammy 'pester you with Facebook' sites is sadly .. quite difficult, never mind citations :)

@TheEvilGreebo It's perfectly fine to power any listed and approved fan from a switched receptacle provided that the conductor and cord cap are rated appropriately, and a suitable raceway is used (e.g. wiremold). What remains is, the fan must be attached to a fan rated box that is suitably supported, and conductors must enter and leave the raceway in a suitable manner. Still, if using wiremold, the cord cap is kind of obviated with a single gang extension box.

comment Am I missing some obvious way to change this lightbulb?
Have you examined the shortest ends for some kind of clip or clasp? Something that sort of slides, just above the trim?

Can you perhaps post a clear picture of the junction box? Additionally, are those conductors copper or aluminium?

comment Correct amps for cooktop and separate oven
@Tester101 He'll need a bit of SJ cord and the appropriate cord cap, but .. that kind of falls into the "call an electrician" bit of advice :) Both appliances should be easily removed for service with a simple means of disconnect. When you hit that kind of mess, it's time to call someone.
