Your fire wood tell who your are – So does your driving


Translation in English further down.

I en bok Hel ved av Lars Myttings om vedhugst og vedfyring kan du lese om

Tips for gifteklare kvinner

I et ukeblad fra Maine i USA, 1892, fant Lars Mytting listen over hva slags mannfolk gifteklare kvinner kunne vente seg ut fra vedstabelen menn produserte. Og slik vurderer du en potensiell ektemann:

Rak og solid stabel: Rak og solid mann.
Lav stabel: Forsiktig mann, muligens sjenert eller svak.
Høy stabel: Høye ambisjoner. Men se opp for ras og sig.
Uvant fasong: Fritenkende, åpen sjel. Se igjen opp for svak konstruksjon.
Prangende stabel, lett synlig: Utadvendt, men muligens en posør.
Mye ved: Langsiktighet, trofasthet.
Lite ved: Et liv fra hånd til munn.
Kubber fra grove trær: Tar livet i store jafs; men kan overfyre og være dumdristig.
Pedantisk stabel: Perfeksjonist. Muligens innadvendt.
Sammenrast stabel: Svak vilje, dårlig prioriteringsevne.
Halvferdig stabel, kubber rett på bakken: Ustabilitet, dovenskap, fyll.
Røys rett på bakken: Ukunnskap, forfall, latskap, fyll, eller alt på en gang.
Gammel og ny ved om hverandre: Vær mistenksom. Kan være stjålet og blandet inn i egen ved.
Store og små kubber om hverandre: Nøysomhet. Å smette inn opptenningsved sammen med store kubber tyder på en omsorgsperson.
Grove, vridde kubber av gjenstridig ved: Iherdig. Sterk vilje. Eller tynget av byrder.
Ingen stabel: Ingen ektemann.

I gamle dager var det med ved en del av forskjellen mellom å overleve vinteren eller dø, så ved hadde veldig mye å si. Man hadde ikke elektrisitet å varme huset med.

Jag tror dette også går for bilkjøring nå for tiden. Om en person kjører på en aggressiv måte, raske start og stopp, kjører veldig fort og bremser hardt, ikke tenker på hvordan passasjerer opplever kjøreturen, og ikke tenker på hvordan andre som ferdes i trafikken rundt de opplever kjøringa, ja da har du oppskrifta på en kanskje ikke fult så kjekk personlighet der også.

Mens en person som tenker på medpassasjerere og andre trafikanter, både på hjul og fotgjengere, og som kjører trygt og og tenker sikkerhet overalt, tilpasser farten etter forholdene og intresserer seg for velferd i trafikken, ja der har du kanskje et omtenksomt og trygt menneske.

In English

In a book Hel Ved (Wood) by Lars Mytting about firewood, you can read about

Tips for women ready to get married
In a magazine from Maine in the United States, 1892, found Lars Mytting a list of what kind of men married women could expect from the woodpile men produced.

And as you evaluate a potential husband:
Straight and solid stack: Straight, sturdy man.
Low stack: Careful man, perhaps shy or weak.
High stack: Big ambitions. But watch out for landslides.
Unusual shape: A freethinker, an open mind. Watch out for a weak construction.
Flashy stack, visible: Outgoing, but possibly a poseurs. More to show than he got?
Much of firewood: Long-term, faith.
Little firewood: A life from hand to mouth.
Logs from the rough trees: Take life in big gulps, but may fire to hard and be reckless.
Pedantic stack: Perfectionist. Possibly introverted.
Collapsed stack: Weak will, poor prioritization skills.
Half-finished pile, logs right on the ground: Instability, laziness, drinker.
Mound to the ground: Lack of knowledge, decay, laziness, drunkenness, or all at once.
Old and new firewood at one another: be suspicious. Can be stolen and mixed into their own firewood.
Large and small logs about each other: Caring. To slip easy lighten wood into with large logs indicate a caregiver.
Grove, twisted logs of stubborn by: Our constant. Strong will. Or, weighed down by burdens.
No stack: No real man. Nothing to marry.

In the old days it was with the part of the difference between surviving the winter or die, so it had a lot to say. There were no electricity to heat your house with. Even so many use firewood to heat the house even now a days so maybe this is still worth the words?

I think this may also go for driving a car these days. If a person is running on an aggressive manner, quick stops and starts, run really fast and breaking hard, not thinking of how passengers experience the ride and not think about how others who walk and drive in traffic around him experience driving, even then you have recipe for a man with a not fully so handsome personality there too.
While a person who drives nicely, thinks of the passengers and other road users, both on wheels and pedestrians, and running safely and think safety at all times and everywhere, adapts according to conditions and interested in the welfare of the traffic and humans, even where you may have a caring and safe man.


Author: Annelie

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.

  1. As a woman from a Maine family which goes back to before the American Revolution there I had to laugh! This is quite amusing and I had to think back to the years when my children were babies and I lived far out into the woods of Maine and was the one stacking the wood to remember what kind of woodpile I stacked. Oh and now I see I was a very good catch! Perhaps we should have the woodpile compatibility test for couples!
