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.

8.

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

June 12: Do you have a spirit animal or guardian?

Yes.

June 12: If you made one for fun, what would it look like?

It would look...

like ^ this. (Many months ago I used some internet thingy to make a creature for fun and whatever this thing is was the result.)

June 13: Where do you find mini painting or general art inspiration?

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.

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).
