Important Lesson Du Jour

How to Give a High Five:

How did we function as a society before the internet existed to disseminate the proper ways to behave?  "High-fiving will be one of the most stressful things you do in life."  Indeed.
Or there other places, besides funerals and bathrooms, where a high five in appropriate?  Perhaps the better question is whether there are types of people, like golfers (as Bill Simmons, ESPN's Sports Guy insists), who should not attempt high fives?  Do these rules vary by race or ethnicity?  Should they?  I wonder if sociologists have addressed these questions.  Surely, there is a dissertation on this somewhere.
