When high-fiving one is counting.

Greek 'to count' means 'to five'.

Con

I am against the high-five for the following reasons

1) It is a quick way to spread bacteria, viruses, and other ilk to other people
2) There are many other classier alternatives that are already making the high five fade into extinction
3) Having someone walk towards you while holding their right arm in the air in high five motion was would led to the rise of Nazi-ism
4) Most people high five with their right hand and also masturbate with their right hand...... meaning people who high-five probably have hand herpes...
5) It discriminates against people who have arthritis, are too short, or are too slow
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Suppose that Con is rational, and express a high-five in least possible terms (i.e., as a fully reduced fraction) as (4 fingers / 1 thumb) for natural numbers 4 and 1. Then Con can be expressed in lower terms as [(3) x (1 thumb)] / (4 fingers - 1 thumb), which is a contradiction. (The two fractional expressions are equal because equating them, cross-multiplying, and canceling like additive terms gives (fingers^2) = (3) x (1^2 thumb) and hence (4 fingers / 1 thumb) = Con, which is true by the premise. The second fractional expression for Con is in lower terms since, comparing denominators, [(4 fingers - 1 thumb) < 1 thumb] since (4 fingers < 2 thumbs) since [(4 fingers / 1 thumb) < 2] since (Con < 2).

Gigantopithicus has 5 fingers because that beast descended from a Devonian fish that had 5 phalanges or bones in its fins. They High-5, therefore homo sapiens sapiens may as well.
