It's our city.

It's our barrio!

We tested this today at our school.

Deputy heads were 2 points. Art teacher was 12, he hates everything. (funnily enough, both teams got him)

Neil won with the pointular equivalent of 47.5 teachers. (Student teachers and other staff = 0.5)

High five to you, Mr, Haddock.

I made up a game similar to this that I play with my sister on boring car rides called The Wave Game.
You get a point for each person you wave to who waves back.
We typically avoid old people and truckers, though.
Bonus points when someone responds to yor wave in an interesting way.

I used to play that on the bus, till it filled up with people playing trance music through mobile phones...

The record was 65-ish I believe, on a day with a traffic jam.

Anyone fancy doing this large scale, with LocalZero teams?

GYZero's feeling high-fivey!

Waving to truckers is awesome- if you're really exuberant about it, sometimes they'll honk those incredible loud horns they've got on their rigs. Getting truckers to honk is worth five points in the game I play with my invisible friends.

Comment vote Anna, too!

Also, I think there should be the added rule that you can't high-5 the same person twice.
Like, both teams can't high-5 the same person, because then they'd have equal points.

We could do this city vs city, but sad to say, some people would cheat, methinks.

What if every highfive had to be documented?

And I'd trust people not to, they're only cheating themselves!

I can't even get my friends to give my high fives. Half of them just leave me hanging and the other half flinch away, thinking I'm going to hit them.

LØ, because I still would like to complete the task according to its actual description.

Also, we happened to be in a high five flash mob at the end of Strawberry Festival. That's about 100 mobbers high-fiving 3000 festival guests after the final act.
