What does it all mean?

Get one of these Chinese characters on your apartment or building and you know you are in big trouble! These symbols are used to mark buildings for demolition.

As you wander the hutongs or older apartment areas of Beijing you may see these painted on the buildings and also notice there are few or no residents inhabiting such buildings.
