Based on an ancient story, overheard and reimagined — the epitome of urban legends. The woodsman was the hero of the tale after all, But most Grimm tales come with a few twists to feed the imagination!
All we know for a fact is that he chucked more wood than a woodchuck chucked, the rest is as much a figment of imagination as many tabloid newspapers. "Speculate with loose language to whip up our outrage."
A breaking story hasn't had enough time to become balanced and well investigated. But proper journalism doesn't get us all excited as it leaves less room for our imaginations to run riot!
Is it all enough to drive you to run off and live in the wild? Find an isolated cabin and live off the land?

Bamboo has a shady past, used to torture during the second world war. Jungle habitat that can grow up to 1 meter a day, it was grown into unfortunate victims while they were strapped in place. But what about harnessing this growth spurt for good? Bamboo can be continually re-harvested with no damage to the surrounding environment. It is a grass and so regenerates after being cut just like a lawn without the need for replanting. Soil erosion is not an issue and crop rotation is not required to keep the soil in good condition.
As long as we use finite resources with care and look after production issues, they can offer us amazing solutions. Cotton the largest user of water among all agricultural commodities. Bamboo is used for food, construction as well as clothing. With careful planning, it provides more material per hectare than cotton, while also growing in harsh and un-irrigated land. This may prove to be the yin to our yang!
