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
what?!? beards and cupcakes!
Oh yes, it’s a thing.
You’re very welcome.
BEARDS AND CUPCAKES! thank you Lottie!
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.
