I just unboxed a brand new 2020 woodchuck. I'm not sure if he can chuck wood or not, but I'd like to find out. I plan to go down to the lumber yard to buy some wood for him, but I'm not sure how much to get. I don't want to spend more sats than I have to, but I'd also like to fully test his chucking limitations. Does anyone know how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

About 250 BTC worth of wood. In 2015, Ryan Castellucci discovered a brain wallet (sha256 hash of "how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood") that contained around 250 BTC at the time.

This is the public address for the brain wallet:

I wonder how someone discovered it... An enhanced kind of dictionary attack by brute forcing over well known texts?

You need to make sure that this woodchuck is not being forced to chuck wood because that would impact the degree to which the woodchuck could chuck wood. Assuming the relationship between how much the woodchuck would chuck and how much wood the woodchuck could chuck is grounded in its own voluntary will to chuck wood, you can probably expect between 5000 and 8000 cm3 of wood chucked per hour from a healthy adult woodchuck.
