If muriatic acid seeped under a wall in a garage crawl space and the space was then sealed with Rustoleum paint could it be the source of a terrible odor on inside wall of the house and is it fixable?

Sounds like the muriatic acid didn't have the fresh air needed for it to evaporate. The papers I've read suggest neutralizing it (muriatic acid is a dilution of hydrochloric acid) with a baking soda mixture. Would it be possible to aerate the crawl space and add baking soda to the area?? Not sure if the rustoleum somewhat slowed down or delayed the evaporation by closing of one source of air.

What direction in china is the great wall located?

  • Well, we know that it protected the Chinese from the north, so it is reasonable to conclude that it is to the North.

HOWEVER, The Wall spans over 50,000 kilometers, so it probably blocks multiple directions. :) Hope this helps! -B

In what year was the Berlin Wall built?

It was built (or rather, started) on 13 August 1961. Construction of the Berlin Wall started on 13 August 1961. It separated East and West Berlin and plugged the last 'gap' in the Iron Curtain which divided Europe into two blocs. It remained in place till 9 November 1989. == ==

For more detail, see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Wall and the external links from that page. Although East Germany was already sealed off from West Germany, Berlin had an "open" border.

In 1961, East Germany closed the border and built the Wall dividing West Berlin from East Berlin. The area of East Berlin was the Sovjet zone, while West Berlin was compounded of the French, British and U.S. zones.

The Eastern Bloc, under the control of the USSR, fell in 1989, as did the infamous Wall". The next year, Germany celebrated Reunification (Oct. 3, 1990)
