      My brother-in-law gets up on the roof and stomps around with the bells and the ho ho hos. It was hilarious to watch the kids freak out. won't be doing that on my 12x12 roof though.

      Even somebody very fit won't get very far on foot in that without snowshoes. I'd say, 50 yards, tops. 6 feet is an absurd amount of snow.

      I didn't say that. I'm sure it has happened before. I'm pretty confident, however, that no roof has ever collapsed because the snow already on it got heavier due to a temperature rise, which is what...

      Those structural failures are from water damage, not increased loading.

      Am ice dam can cause the roof to leak, but I've never heard of one causing a structural failure. If you can find am example, please post it.

      All good points, but I'm not the one who said:



      Perhaps one of you geniuses can explain how the weight of the snow increases without more precipitation.

      Uh, it doesn't actually get heavier. A pound of water weighs the same as a pound of snow...

      Also, there's a thing called a "building code" which has requirements for things like snow loads.

      I don't see what the big deal is. And I don't think kids living at home longer is an indication that they're lazy freeloaders. It's the natural consequence of the real cost of housing having roughly...

      Reno itself is one of the saddest little dumps I've ever been to, but the surrounding area is pretty awesome. Tahoe, King's Canyon, and Yosemite are all pretty close, and there are other less famous...

      Just as many dumb people as ever. The difference is, back in the old days, you put an ad in the paper when you wanted to sell something, and an editor would correct such errors before it went to...

      ^ This. Most of the waste at Hanford isn't from the power plant. It's the storage tanks built in the 50's and 60's that are leaking.

      Just ignore him. This is going nowhere. You showed him the extensive maintenance records, notified him of existing issues, and he bought it anyway. There is no warranty. And 3 months is way too long...

      It's legal to own more or less anything that is not fully automatic. Carrying is a different story.

      That is the case for deep-space and landing vehicles, but not satellites, which generally deploy a solar array for such purposes, and account for the overwhelming majority of launches.
