School's out

One of those high school traditions that need protecting, nurturing, spreading and promoting: the naked high school run by the graduating boys over a local city bridge in Stavanger, Norway.
This year it came with a political point: to protest human rights in China. Running naked with a conscience gets my full athletic support because it certainly celebrates the original Olympic ethos.
And I'm glad to see they don't needed hoodies to celebrate their youth, but the bracing North Sea wind might cause the boys to hood up their appendages.
