    Sounds like yet another way to swindle the unaware. Tire of the BS.

    This should be added to the Hearth.com glossary.

    College Cord - A fair try at 128 cu ft of firewood though not enough to be a true cord on account of having to overcome a demonic hangover.

    I like it, but only if it means the same as a "dictionary cord"... I'm going to assume that it's an attempt to clarify that this is what an educated individual would call a cord. Better than a "Kindergarten Cord"...

    Hmmm does that mean you need a keg to stack it?
    Or maybe they send cute coeds over to stack it for you?
    Ok I'm grasping.
    Not a big one for government regs am I but glad that in in NH fire wood can only be sold by the cord or reasonable fractions thereof (1/3 1/2 1/8 etc) with the cord clearly defined as 128 cu ft and 4x4x8 tightly stacked with the only exception being small bundles sold for camp fire wood. No "face" cords or other such BS here allowed. Live Free or Die but only if you sell your wood fairly:)

    Maybe you can take one from OWS and demand free college (cords).

    I believe this will come with beer goggles that will make a small pile look like a full cord.

    Maybe that is a unit of measure for how much wood that is typically burned on the weekend kegger parties?

    Actual final amount is based on a curve depending on the quality of wood

    A Community College Cord gets you the similar amount of wood, but is less expensive.

    But the wood itself may not burn in some "University" stoves. You need to check to see that the stove accepts those community cord credits.

    And an online college cord has the same btu content and usefulness as a piece of paper.

    Beware the fellow selling the wood... Count Cordula!

    Say... what do you call a man with no arms and no legs and no pile of wood for this year?






























    A cordless phone! :)


    Okay... I'll stand for the beating now.

    Sounds like it could be similar to what I call a full "Long Island Cord," which is approximately .75 cord with 20% wet pine mixed in. If it's advertised as "Seasoned" it was cut down 3-4 months ago, "Unseasoned" last week.

    Your right about the seasoned definitions, around here the guys think if its standing dead its already seasoned- lots of beetle killed pine

    Hmm . . . maybe if you ask your parents, they'll pay for it?


    I have for sale cherry firewood = he's selling wood
    which will be load into a f350 dump = he's got a truck. The wood will be placed in the truck. `be load' means it happens once, and the wood is acted upon, as opposed to `be loaded' which would mean that the wood has been, is, and will be inebriated and takes the action itself
    equal to 1 qtvered = equal to a hitherto undocumented and still unidentified unit of measure, 1 (one) qtvered
    150.00 local area = price delivered locally (inside deptford)
    anything out of deptford 10mile area is 25.00= price drops to $25 if he can leave deptford to take the qtvered of wood to your house

    wow I am really suprised, none of the firewood people on here know what 1 qtvered is
    1 qtvered is a medieval measure equal to 1 hectare
    which in turn converts to 2.47 acres (area) 107593 ft2
    which assuming average size splits would yield
    420.285 cords of wood

    hence the term College Cord, because there is math involved
    and some B.S.
