June 14: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

 

Thanks, Cyradis! Really. :lol:

That would depend on several factors:

1 What is he being paid? Hourly or piecework?

2 Can he live on the wages earned or does he have to become indebted to payday loansharks?

3 Why is he chucking the wood? Does this have a purpose or is it busywork with no end?

4 Are his managers making the job unnessesarily difficult through elfhat rules, regulations or micromanaging?

5 Would higher productivity in wood chucking benefit him or would it benefit the shareholders at his expense?

Most importantly, does the act of wood chucking anger the trees? After all our woodchuck has to live among them and trees are not known for their forgiveness. (I know of at least two public figures who were killed by enraged trees with aluminum baseball bats)

The new generation of woodchucks are environmentalists so they will leave the trees alone!

Instead they will chuck on artificial wood which tastes horrible, so they will stop doing that eventually and then they will try to "just nibble" on a stick that already had fallen.

From there they will move on to larger branches that were dropped by the trees, so no harm done.

 

One day, a curious young woodchuck will look at a tree and when nobody is looking he takes a chuck.

The taste...the sensation..living wood...aahhhhhh!!!

He tells his adolescent friends and secret woodchucking parties are being held while parents are asleep.

 

So the answer must be as much wood as a woodchuck can chuck in one night before getting caught.

When in doubt, just like in high school math, X always equals 8.

It would look...

Well there is any thread started by Malefactus.

There is things I see ^ just driving around. (That I will stop to take a picture of. That was some serious, serious root flare on that oak tree.)

 

And then there is the NTFC:

These folk are really, really good.

I dunno why they let the likes of me in to have a look, but they do.

Many thousands of pounds. All ya gotta do is nickname a John Deere 903K Feller BuncherWoodchuck”...

...and the answer is a bunch. As in two or three trees at a time. (After viewing the video the answer to one of your questions is: Yes, that is a 6 foot diameter circular saw blade on the business end of the thing.)

According to the interwebs, an actual woodchuck:

...is more of an earthmover, than a logger. 

 

(Also lumberjack seems to have become politically incorrect :huh: the term nowadays is apparently: logger.)

Already answered: A woodchuck would chuck as much wood he could if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

 

The real question is: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could berserker rage like a barbarian?!

 

The results would be far more interesting. Probably include the skulls of fallen enemies (like them stoopid beavers, thinking they're all high and mighty because they *can* chuck wood).

This sounds like an imaginary biology problem.

 

Understand as given: Biology is the study of systems of biochemical processes.  Biochemistry is a specific application of chemistry.  Chemistry is a specific application of physics.

 

Therefore, an imaginary biology problem can be treated as a specific case of a more general imaginary physics problem.

 

Therefore, exam credit will only be given for the general case of the imaginary physics problem.

I don't know about chucking wood, but woodchucks, or groundhogs as we call them, are absolute terror on pastures and gardens. There's one little bugger that keeps eating The Mom's garden. He took a single bite out of every single one of her watermelons last year. One bite.  I've got his number if I ever see him again.

We forgot the most obvious answer:

 

TWENTY!

 

Twenty of what I leave to your imagination.

So saying singing "I'm a lumberjack" is not OK?

 

Could there be lumberjanes?

They do the same thing with tomatoes.

Depends on how much ipecac it consumed prior to, or during, the act of chucking wood.

I think zero mass is inappropriate for the problem. After all, with zero mass, there would be no friction to allow purchase on the wood. Also, infinite charge, while possibly useful in many circumstances, is counterproductive in dry forests.

 

But spherical and of uniform density seems fair. And constant velocity seems a useful simplifying assumption as well, though you need to carefully define your rest frame.

      Minivember is here once again! I know that today is the 5th so I'm going to have to play a little catch up as I was on vacation until yesterday evening. Now I need to get started painting so this will probably be a shorter intro post than previous years. You may ask why the title says "The Last." Well because this is the last year that I am going to be doing Minivember. Next year I'll have a new fun thing but it will be in October instead of November because of how busy this time of year is for me. And I know that the holidays are part of the challenge but it's getting to be too much of a challenge.
       
      This year I'm going to be painting minis from Shadows of Brimstone that I have not yet finished. My goal (like every year) is to paint at least thirty (30) unique minis, one (1) for each day. While I've reached this goal in the past I'm going to push myself a little further this year and try to get all of one type of the mini painted. Some of them have up to six (6) of the same mini. I chose to paint this because I want to play the game again and this is a great time to get it done. While this is not all of the SoB minis that I have to do it is a good chunk of them. 
       
      Anyway, here's this year's calendar and I'll be posting photos as soon as I can.

      I thought this year would be my last ReaperCon. Somewhere along the line, I forgot the joy of speed painting and just painting miniatures for tabletop quality that I can use for gaming, etc. Somewhere along the line miniature painting became something that had to 'wow' or be appropriate for competition.
       
      I rediscovered my love of miniature painting at the Speed Painting, Sophie Says, and Paint by Die Roll tables at ReaperCon 2018; having 45-60 minutes to paint a miniature was such an exhilarating challenge and I present to you my fun!!!
       
      Barnabus the pirate was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Esme was a Speed Paint.
      Judas was a Sophie Says. 
      Michelle was a Speed Paint.
      Ogre was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Sekhmet was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Trista was a Sophie Says.

      Welcome to Getting to Know you, September 2018 Edition.
       
      Here are the roolz, copied directly from @Crowley's post from last month
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
       
      The most important thing is to have fun! In fact, its now mandatory
    • By Crowley
      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!
