A New Way To Split Firewood

Recently we got a heads up from AT:Chicago writer Sarah Rae about this YouTube video showing a better way to chop firewood! Alas, we don't have a wood-burning fireplace, although we dream of having one someday. But seriously? Chopping wood looks hard. Not sure what we expected, but this nifty little trick seems to make it at least a bit easier. Watch the video below. (A word of warning: we take no responsibility for the cheesy song.)
