Two firm open hands collide! (High Fives)

Okay, I just thought of something, I don't know who is up for it, but I think this would be wonderful.

I would like to suggest that people who know about this idea participate. Basically, I want people to high five everyone they see with a hand up for a high five. Walk down the hall, toss up a hand, and count on someone slapping you a high five.

This would be a great way to unify us. See a forumer? High five! Walking through a crowded hall? Fish for a high five.

People need to be able to count on eachother for some camaraderie here, and high fives. Well they are just totally rad.

Make PAX 2007 the year of the High Five!

EDIT: I vote everyone who wants in get an ID t-shirt with your forum name on it. We can then be in the know as to who is safe. If you want to live dangerously, take a risk. Hit up a stranger, most people around are kooky and nice, they might just nail that hand because it's there!

    Yeah, but enough people know enough people to make this workable. As long as we have cooperation, this could be grand.

    Maybe, if I'm good and drunk it'll work.

    I'm more friendy and a people person when I'm drunk.

    Well of course it will fail with that attitude. We can't have negative Nancy's in this. Not to mention, this would be easier if we posted pics, at least that way, we could ID those who are in for a high five.

    So that means one in ten people will hit your five. I dunno about you, but there are at least that many people in eyeshot at any given time all weekend.

    Some options:

    -flyers for everyone online explaining that if you see an outstretched hand, high five it. (and whatever other ideas you can fit on the flyer)

    -Walk down the line explaining the same

    -Take the group of people who said yes here, and run around demanding high fives from everyone until it naturally catches on (or you're declared insane and avoided like the plague)

    I used to do this in high school.

    Basically have your arm up and just yell "HIGH FIVE!" and be excited and people will high five if they're goofy enough. and most people at PAX will.

    Did this plenty of times at previous PAX events. You just hold out your arm when you are on the escalator or walking past a line so people going the other way can give you a Hi-5. You do not need to plan out months in advance to hi-5 someone.

    Dude, stop being the party pooper. This isn't about some random occurance where you stick out a high five and hope to get nailed. This is about people here joining together with other people in order to plan on being silly and having a good time. We just want to be goofs and slap some skin. More than anything, we are playing around on the forum and making connections. High fives aren't the point. The point is to make friends.

    Man, planning is fun......

    But so is holding my DS, and swag bag, and money, and the event schedule (and maybe a map??), and my pockets. My hands may be too busy for high fives. Thumb up snaps: I can do. But I don't know if I can commit to high-fives.
