GL_NORMALIZE

This may seem stupid, but do I need to call
glEnable(GL_NORMALIZE);
//or
glEnable(GL_RESCALE_NORMALIZE);
when I have static vertices and already calculated my normals? thanks

If you have already calculated the normals and they are vectors of length 1(normalized vectors), than neither of these calls is necessary because the GL_NORMALIZE only makes your normal vectors to length 1.

Follow this rules in general :
- if you never call glScale, do not enable any normalizing,
- if you use uniform scaling (eg glScale(2,2,2)) then enable GL_RESCALE_NORMALIZE,
- if you use non-uniform scaling (eg glScale(1,4,2)) then enable GL_NORMALIZE.
