    It makes sense to me, although I just made that definition up.
    In the US we just say Robbed, not Burgled or Burglarized.

    Re: Ugly words

    "Break and enter" here. What is burglary?

    Burglary is essentially the entering, or remaining in a building as a trespasser, with the intent of committing an offence. The offence was defined as breaking and entering into a dwelling at night under the common law, whilst the same act committed during daylight hours was referred to as housebreaking. However, burglary is now defined under statute law, with all Australian states and territories making the act a criminal offence. Which is of course, little surprise.

    Using s 76(1) of Victoria’s Crimes Act as a guide, a person commits the offence of burglary if the following elements are evident:

    “(1) A person is guilty of burglary if he enters any building or part of a
    building as a trespasser with intent-

    (a) to steal anything in the building or part in question; or

    (b) to commit an offence-

    (i) involving an assault to a person in the building or part in question;
    or
    (ii) involving any damage to the building or to property in the building or
    part in question…”

    Despite the use of the word, ‘he’ in the Victorian legislation, a female is just as liable as a male, to be found guilty of burglary. Further interesting observations in the definition of burglary, can be found in s 109 of New South Wales’ Crimes Act, which defines burglary as entering a dwelling-house with intent, and s 213 of the Northern Territory’s Criminal Code, which states that the offence is an “unlawful entry of buildings.”

    What are the elements that make up the offence burglary?

    Generally speaking, the constituent parts of burglary, is the intent to commit an offence in a building, and the act of entering into, said building. In R v Dugan, the leading judgment by Street CJ, stated:

    “Its ingredients, as the section states, for presently relevant purposes, are first entering a building, and secondly, with intent to commit a felony in the building… The actus reus is the act of entry. The mens rea is the intent to commit the robbery in the building. The coincidence in point of time of these two ingredients is what is encompassed within the Act.”

    What is aggravated burglary?

    If an offence has been committed while a person was carrying an offensive weapon, then the act is generally referred to as, aggravated burglary. Again, using Victoria’s Crimes Act under s 77(1) as a reference, the features of aggravated burglary are:

    “(1) A person is guilty of aggravated burglary if he or she commits a burglary
    and-

    (a) at the time has with him or her any firearm or imitation firearm, any
    offensive weapon or any explosive or imitation explosive; or

    (b) at the time of entering the building or the part of the building a
    person was then present in the building or part of the building and he
    or she knew that a person was then so present or was reckless as to
    whether or not a person was then so present.”

    Even if granted permission by the owner to enter into a home, a person may still be guilty of an offence

    It’s not unusual for a person who goes on a holiday to ask a neighbour to drop into their place, and to look after their home while the person is away: But what happens if the neighbour has instead robbed the residence? Well, this is exactly what transpired in Barker v The Queen, and the High Court ruled, that a person will be considered as a trespasser after being given permission to enter the premises, steals from the person once inside the dwelling, and while also possessing the requisite intent – may be found guilty of an offence.

    The judges in Barker stated:

    “A person who enters the premises of another with the permission or consent of that other does not enter as a trespasser unless the permission or consent is vitiated by fraud or duress.”

    WRONG!

    Robbery is open, robbing a bank at gunpoint or a person on the street at night.

    Burglary is done in secret, breaking into a house or business at night or stuffing merchandise under your sweater in a store.

    I'm trying to remember where I heard the Aztec equivalent of the Ten Commandments earlier this week.

    Don't steal, don't lie and never be lazy.

    I think that has to be the pinnacle of ethics, I'm totally impressed. And it applies equally to people and governments.

    As far as I'm concerned, if someone wants to seethe a young goat in its mother's milk I have no objection whatever.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I think "Volumizing" is an ugly word. It is found on hair blower boxes.
