Here's a first in a new series I like to call Does Craig Really Need to Know?.

Through it, I figure out, according to a story online, if I need to know how to do what the story describes.

Most of the online stories I find online have to do with sports or TV or food or celebrities.

So, sandwiched between a story about Radio Shack closings and Kayne West getting ripped was was an article about removing a tree stump cheaply.

According to Kinja's Lifehacker Workshop:

The cheap and easy way to remove a tree stump is to use a tree stump remover like Spectracide ($6.44 on Amazon), which is potassium nitrate (also known as saltpeter). This chemical causes the stump to rot at a much faster pace than normal which will allow you to tear it out.

"Use a 1-inch auger bit and drill deep holes into the top and side of the stump. Pour the stump remover into the holes and top it off with water which activates the product. Keep children and animals away from the stump using chicken wire or some type of cover. Then wait. It can take months for the stump to break down, depending on how old and how large the stump is.

"Rent a power stump grinder if you are short on time. These are big and heavy machines, but they make short work of stubborn stumps by using carbide tipped teeth to instantly shred a stump."

So, after reading that, I ask: "Does Craig really need to know" how to remove a tree stump cheaply?

The answer: No, not at all.

Thank you for reading Does Craig Really Need to Know?
