why is it allowed to build in wood? every summer I spend time on replacing rotten wood, or painting wood so it not rot...All I have built from ground myself I built in massive granite, sand stone or skifer, my personal few structures will stand for 500 years without maintenance as absolute minimum (well, pray for no earthquakes).

I have lifted many tonns of stone this summer, I can move blocks 300 kg and even 600kg by hand, it is all technique, let gravity be on your side.  If one man-power can move 600 kg blocks, then ten thousand egyptians could sure move 200 tonn blocks by simple hand and foot techniques, no advanced jumbo mumbo needed.

In  particular Nordic-Countires have no clue about Theta-bleed! Have someone calculated the  annual national wood-rot-bleed? Should be next to GDP!

build in wood about 1000 meter above sea level fine, the fungus eating wood dont like it there..below 1000 meter should be forbidden by law!

At least I'm not alone in this feeling :-D

Do you also watch videos of lectures / tutorials sped up twice? They should add a "Skip a stupid joke" button.

I wish. I remember the emo music from my youth:
Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends

They promote physical violence! (3:07) Pretty disturbing stuff.

In the US: BOGO. This seems to be the absolute minimum.

In the UK: BOGOF. A much better deal.

Be careful, though - it's sometimes BO for the price of two (in fine print) GOF.

BTW, I'm not hacking the forum. I'm just copying all my Off Topic posts to train my "AI" model to post here for me. Part of my AI maskirovka :-)

What's under the carpet? Or is it just a surface model?
