Sorry, I wound up watching a movie and fell asleep. I didn't mean to leave you hanging. haha

Quoting meglennox:

see, now that makes more sense lol ;)  that is a lot of toothpicks!

Quoting .Angelica.:

i was curious and looked it up.

A cord is the amount of wood that, when "ranked and well stowed" (arranged so pieces are aligned, parallel, touching and compact), occupies a volume of 128 cubic feet (3.62 m3).[1] This corresponds to a well stacked woodpile 4 feet (122 cm) wide, 4 feet (122 cm) high, and 8 feet (244 cm) long; or any other arrangement of linear measurements that yields the same volume.

Quoting meglennox:

....how big is a cord of wood?
