The light may be vanishing from Svalbard this week, but the governor would prefer it not be forever for local youths who’ve discovered a new form of “blackout” involving self-suffocation.

“The police at the governor’s office are concerned about a TikTok trend among children and young people, which has also found its way to Svalbard,” the governor announced in a press release Thursday. “This is the so-called Blackout Challenge, which means that you suffocate yourself or others until you faint.”

“There have been deaths related to this trend, but not yet in Norway,” Police Chief Lt. Vidar Arnesen said. “All forms of suffocation involve a great danger of death or significant injury.”

The governor’s office has notified Longyearbyen School about the trend, and parents are asked to be aware of it and discuss it with their children, according to the statement.

I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
