To these beautiful words there is a thing or two to mention...

First...

If the midnight sun is fascinating to people visiting the north, then they will be overwhelmed by the Northern Light — or Aurora Borealis — on a dark winter night. The colors in that night light could not be captured in a photo or on film. It has to be seen with your own eyes.

People living up there needs some highlights to get through the rough weather and long winters, and they are rewarded with these spectacular visions. They are also famous for shaking off anything good or bad with a rough language followed by a good laughter first, whatever happens.

This bring me over to the second...

A Norwegian friend told me Facebook or F***book as I call it has censored the name of a community called Kjerringøy — a famous spot to observe the midnight sun in the city of Bodø — because they regard the name to be a swear word. People was born there, live there and die there. Songs are sung and poems written as a tribute to this beautiful little village with a spectacular view. Now it must be written ********øy if you use F***book.

What a shame! This famous little village was the inspiration to the Nobel Prize Winner in Literature Knut Hamsun’s novels. He was rewarded a century ago. Hamsun influenced famous novelists as Franz Kafka, Henry Miller, Hermann Hesse and Ernest Hemingway. He was considered as the leader in the Neo-Romantic revolt in literature, by pioneering psychological elements styles like the interior monologue and stream of consciousness.

Mr. Z***erberg, people are laughing at you. The man with three *** in his name, and I know a lot of people has replaced that Z with another letter.

And don’t forget that this Z***erberg sold the personal information of 90 million people for silver money.

You might know me, but you don’t. I got wet in the rain, but now always soaked. I thought a lot. High thoughts and also loud and clear.
