I have a question to one of our norwegian posters: I´ve always wondered why the norwegian high school seniors or graduates are being called "Russ" and wear these red jump suits! Why red and why that name? Is it somehow linked to Russia...?

And why do they crawl in front of the palace balcony at the parade? Some kind of ironic gesture of submission towards the crown?
Last question: what about this stick they carry with them? I watched them hitting the floor with it... For a non-norwegian a very foreign and odd concept to watch from outside - but I guess there is an explanation. Thanks for clarifying this mystery!
