Thread: One thing that really divides Norway is bark.

    Default One thing that really divides Norway is bark.

    Apparently in Norway wood is srsbsns.

    One thing that does not divide Norway, apparently, is its love of discussing Norwegian wood. Nearly a million people, or 20 percent of the population, tuned in at some point to the program, which was shown on the state broadcaster, NRK.
    How long till I get to watch wood burn on my tv?

    Norway has already had its wood burning on TV.

    Edit: Oh, you are linking to an old article about this very same show.

    Both of our links go to February. I heard about it on the radio a couple days ago. I wonder if Norwegians are now watching reruns of wood burning? I just can't wait till I can get some mundane programming for my television. Perhaps our OCD crowd should start out on something not quite as mundane. Maybe watching sheep grazing?

    Watching wood burn on telly are for the losers that don't have a fireplace of their own. And you store the wood un-split which makes it hel ved. Logs that are split becomes halv ved or kvart ved if you split it twice.

    If you don't have fireplace, it can be difficult to set wood on fire safely.
