Marmot gives side eye

Marmot gives side eye
Whistle pig, woodchuck, rock chuck, ground hog, potgut. Really, they're just big ground squirrels. This one is a yellow-bellied marmot. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow-bellied_marmot There are many marmot species in the genus Marmota, each with its own territory on the globe

Here is another one I saw behind Walmart.

So, here is Marmota walmartus:
Mr. Marmot
Their little black monkey hands are so cute! I've found that they freeze, giving ample time for photos, then run when you make the tiniest move.

My goodness, they're all over the place around here. I think they're adorable, but they can be quite destructive - chew on car wiring, make big holes in gardens, and so on. The most adorable sight a few years ago was in spring when a big colony that lives nearby had its little babies running like crazy all over the abandoned baseball park. Zigzagging and romping. I didn't get any good shots of them because they were so fast. And, of course, I love the whistle!

Steve, after I got out of Sonoma State oh so many years ago, I've waited to see if I would ever have to use algebra in my life. I haven't so far.

Besides, some crucial factors in the problem you present are missing: (1) how fast can this woodchuck chuck wood, (2) how heavy is each piece, (3) how many pieces are in the pile, (4) how fast does the average piece of wood travel and (5) how much beer has this woodchuck had so far. He's looking like an angry drunk, in my opinion.
