I have a wood stove in the basement. I have a finished basement though. It certainly gets toasty in the basement when it's burning, and there's a central AC intake immediately over it that helps heat the rest of the house.

Pellet stoves are really popular around here. They work really well, are low maintenance, and not that messy. My parents use their pellet stove to get the house up to temp a couple times a day, then maintain it the rest of the time with mini splits.

I used to have a free standing gas stove (only thing legal in the Bay Area). It was a Lopi. Looked just like a wood burning stove. Loved that stove. It really pumped out the heat, and zero mess or cleaning.

When I lived in CT, I had a large fireplace with a built in forced air heat-o-lator. In that same fireplace I installed a forced air insert. Yep, I heated our whole house (2 story) for 3 winters with that system. Took about 8 cords of wood per year.

Yep, I carried and split 8 cords of wood a year. Now, if I get chilly, I have to muster up the energy to walk across the room to turn up the thermostat -

I can't wait for whoever swiped my tape measure off my toolbox to realize it is metric.

Old age or head injuries.

Wtf?

"The film is inspired by the real story of a 175-pound American black bear that died after ingesting a duffel bag full of cocaine in December 1985. The cocaine was dropped out of an airplane piloted by Andrew C. Thornton II, a former narcotics officer and convicted drug smuggler, because his plane was carrying too heavy a load. Thornton then jumped off the plane with a faulty parachute and died. The bear was found three months later in the north of the state of Georgia alongside 40 opened plastic containers of cocaine. The bear is currently on display at the Kentucky for Kentucky Fun Mall in Lexington, Kentucky, US. "Cocaine Bear" was coined by Kentucky for Kentucky in 2015."
