Russ are final-ye

Russ are final-year Norwegian secondary school students who, between the end of compulsory classes and final exams leading up to May 17, the National Day of Norway, wear colored overalls indicating their line of study and compete in drunken games to earn the right to add knots to cords which dangle from their caps.
