I gotta call bullshit on this vid. As previous posters noted, that wood was the kind I dreamed of splitting. I usually got stuck with Locust, or Cherry. We used a sledge and wedges on the big and hard stuff and on the easy stuff, a double-edged axe would do the job just as easy as what I saw here. My brother shared in my misery in this area and I love CC'ing things like this with him, but this one doesn't pass the test.
The damage to the Fukishima reactors weren't directly the result of the earthquake, but the tidal wave that followed. Then again, I question building reactors on the eastern seaboard of Japan in a region called "The rim of fire".
No kidding. I wouldn't expect anything different from the northern states I fled. This is the same system that can't get rid of the beer distributor system in PA that benefits no-one but their membership. Hope they all sink!
