    I don't speak Norwegian, but from this article, http://tv.yahoo.com/news/norway-plans-12-hour-prime-time-tv-show-162045166.html, I was able to find what they were referring to, http://tv.nrk.no/serie/nasjonal-vedkveld/dvnr30003513/15-02-2013 A Norwegian firewood documentary, and they sound like a bunch of Muppets Swedish Chefs, lol. Nice looking stacks, tools etc. Wish I could understand what they're saying. I was looking for the 12 hour fire, to put on the HDTV 50" Plasma in the summer. somehow, I get the feeling they don't have burn restrictions.

    A couple of days ago I was reading some older threads about Holz Hauzen and saw, repeated a few times, the idea that the splits need to be sloped inward for stability. About 40 minutes into this video you can watch one being built with the splits angled to be higher towards the middle, which makes sense to me in that it would shed rain rather than pulling it in.

    I actually watched most of it. In company time. I'd never spend 2 hours of my time watching Norwegian wood. The guys at work probably think I am even more odd now, but I don't care. Check out 23:00 or so, 55:00 or so and 1:33.

    They have a very dry sense of humour.

    Would you like round or square frozen pizza for supper tonite ?
