Next thing they are going to say clapping is a disease, like they're saying obesity is, and alcoholism.(joke)
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John

Then we can have a new (yet old) social contagion - apphoṭanaghosa - the sound of clapping.

How about rioting associated with football matches. Men watching football in small numbers never seem to exhibit much violence but get a stadium full of men and they sometimes run amok.
