    Market it as 'Hand Carved Wood Stove Chips'. Put them in a Pringles can and sell them for 15 buck a pop.

    I was in a grocery store in Eastern PA the other day, they had one of those community posting boards where everybody thumbtacks stuff on. There was one -

    Quart Wood Available
    $140 per quart
    With the guys name and number.

    I almost called him to see how big his quart was, but thought better of it. If he doesn't know a quart is a cord, how in the world do they know that a cord is 4x4x8?

    Even if they mean a 'quarter of a cord', that is still a retarded price.

    Email and ask how much it is for a gallon. Maybe there is a price break for quantity.

    There are 231 cubic inches in a gallon so 1/4 of a gallon is 57.75 cubic inches or about 3.3% of a cubic foot. Maybe you could send an SASE and have them send it to you???

    What on earth is the matter with you guys. Everyone knows a pint is a pound the world around. It takes 2 pints to make a quart, so that ad is for 2 pounds of wood. A bargain at that price!

    Maybe he meant "court".

    Like "I just ripped up this basketball court and want to sell the wood".


    Hmmmm, sometimes they sell beer by the yard instead of pints.

    I think his cousin lives near me , his ad reads 75.00 for a normal pick-up load.
    Maybe we could call and ask him how many quarts to fill up a "normal" pick-up truck.
