22 High Five Fails Captured on Camera

There has been many debates on how the ever cool high-five was first brought into existence. While some believe that it was Christopher Columbus during his not-discovery of India, some others believe that it was Barnabus Stinson from back in the 15th century. Regardless of the popular beliefs, people nowadays still perform the ritual of awesomeness and mutual agreement by slapping their palms with a trustworthy partner. This is also where the seemingly easy action becomes complicated and in these cases, socially humiliating. As we are about to learn, not every two people can pull this off. Let us go into the reasons why high five fails exist.

First of all, to hold out a hand requires some level of confidence. Sure, anyone can raise a palm. All he or she would have to do next is wait for a reply. This is where the confidence plays off its role. By holding out your palm, you display that you have a certain degree of trust that your five will be met by another. This trust however, must be a two-way street. Basically, one must assert his confidence in his stance, as doing so will make his presence known, alerting the other part of the impending moment of awesomeness. A lack of this would summons instead high five fails.

Then we come to the next and most important part of a functional high-five; the partner. There’s a reason why it’s called a ‘partner’, and not ‘friend’. This is because not all friends share the same interests and beliefs. For example, just because you think that you should get a high-five after tripping the nerdy kid from school, doesn’t mean others would also agree to. Only a partner, whose mind is a lot like yours, can understand this eccentric beliefs.
