As I’ve said before, the asymptotic high five is the closest thing mental_floss has to a secret handshake. Choreographed by Senior Editor Jenny Drapkin, it’s fun and nerdy and allows us to greet each other when we’re sick.
Readers Kerri and Paul were kind enough to demonstrate it. With a graph and everything! Consider adding this to your high-five arsenal.
this makes me laugh every time. I’ve been meaning to post this since Oscar night, that was a pretty good night, we did manage to make time to play two games of You Don’t Know Jack, watch the Oscars, and I “pretend” opened my presents in front of everyone. Pretend because I had already received them on the 23rd but no one really got to see me open them. .. actually I’ll talk about that at a later date maybe, like, next year at the rate I’m going.
The asymptotic high five is the closest thing we at mental_floss have to a secret handshake. Choreographed by Senior Editor Jenny Drapkin, it’s fun and nerdy and allows us to greet each other when we’re sick. And now it’s on a t-shirt!
Now that the secret is out, there are three ways you can support the asymptotic high five:
1. Start giving people asymptotic high fives. (Try it. You’ll like it.)
2. Give someone an asymptotic high five, take a picture, and send it to us!
3. Get the t-shirt! Through the weekend, all our shirts are on sale for $14.90. Use the code PIPARTY (it’s part of our Pre-Pi Day sale).
I’ve got a virtual asymptotic high five for anyone who does any of those three things.
THE FUN NEVER ENDS
as awesome as this high-five is, Batman is clearly about to plummet to his death
This Is Funny, You Should Watch It of the Day: “High-fiving can be one of the most stressful things you’ll ever do in life. It doesn’t have to be, though. Just remember this simple list of tips and tricks.”[thd.]
this is so important to me.
