It's pretty shit, isn't it? I always used to (when I was little) be really paranoid when I clapped that it wasn't making the proper 'clapping' noise - everyone elses clapping seemed to be much more 'boomy' and loud than mine. I tried all sorts of different claps to fit in, but none of them ever worked. I think I'm a claptard. Recently, I've become slightly more easy about clapping in public, but I still try and keep it to a bare minimum. Unless I'm drunk. But then, being drunk doesn't count, as I do all sorts of stupid things when I'm drunk.
Anyway. Clapping. It should be banned. Or, someone should do lessons for youngsters who are paranoid by their inability to clap.
