    To clap or not to clap

    Pro Beijing initiative, narrative spun by BrandHK, shamelessly hijacked by the police, even worse, Carrie might think we’re applauding her and the government’s response to the outbreak...
    To clap or not to clap, that is the debate!

    Just go out and clap for whoever the fuck you want to clap for ...

    Does it really really make a difference who you think appreciates or misunderstands your intentions?

    MOST of the people are clapping for themselves.

    Thinking about it a bit more... I think I overreacted. I don't want anyone to think that their clapping is unappreciated.

    An appropriate reaction would be...

    Slow cap to appreciate X
    Triple clap to appreciate Y
    Snap your fingers to appreciate Z
    Yodle to appreciate A
    Do the Macarena to appreciate B
    Sit on your arse and continue watching Curb Your Enthusiasm if you

    But .. please do it all together at 8PM! Seriously...

    There's another clapping initiative? There was one last night at 8pm but nobody joined, or is this a nightly thing now?

    Because clapping magically get's the nurses more equipment, more funding and less work load?

    I'm going to add a line to the middle-class bingo:

    Bitching about clapping from the people-we-don't-agree-with

    How did you get the news of it happening? I only got it through a Twitter retweet. I'm guessing most of the neighborhood doesn't have Twitter so they didn't hear of it.

    No clue where the Mrs heard about this. Facebook /whatsapp? I'm too much of a cynic to do this. Did go out to see if the ninjas ran out to the playground with their cameras to see where the disturbance was.

    Even folks who were social-distance-walking-working-out in the playground had paused to clap / shout.
