#NaturePorn Norwegian Nerds Get TV Wood

"We'll talk about the very nerdy subjects like burning, slicing and stacking the wood, but we'll also have cultural segments with music and poems... People in Norway have a spiritual relationship with fire...Fire is the reason we're here, if there was no firewood, we couldn't live in Norway, we'd freeze." Norway's NRK broadcasts 12-hour wood burning programme BBC
We don't have that much wood in the bastard isles...but we do have old people to burn so we don't freeze. Could we not televise that as well if it gets a bit too nippy? Some of us like to keep it a steady thirty degrees above zero when outside the door it's thirty below. Since we don't have much oil left, it's only logical we burn the elderly when things get nippy.
