I saw the whole sky illuminated at once like that. Maybe it was a meteor or something. They've been reporting those alot lately.
Yeah, could be a meteor. That don't explain the black outs though.
You live in a commune?
We call them communes yeah. Norway is based on communes within different parts of the country. Norway has an extremely good political system, It's
probably the closest thing you have to a working anarchy in the world today. It’s still far from anarchy in its best form, but we are on our way,
hehe. The country is parted into several communes. These communes have their own elected mini-government (if I could call it that). So we have commune
elections as well as government elections (each every fourth year, with a two year room between a commune election and a government election. We just
had a commune election, so in two years we will have a government election again). Each commune is controlled by the party that is elected by the
people in the commune election... the communes get financial support from the state and government who of course also is elected by the people. So,
while I live in a commune controlled by the most authorian right wing party in Norway (yeah, the one that suggested to electronically mark every
immigrant that gets to live in the country)... I have friends that live in communes controlled by socialist parties. What is also good is that the
party that gets the most votes, they don't rule alone... they have to share power with other high-ranking parties. I believe my commune is ruled by
FrP(the authorian right wing party), SV(The not so radical left wing socialist party, hehe) and AP(The Labour Party).
But let's not drive this thread into boring talk about Norwegian politics, cause I really don't know a whole lot about it, hehe.
