Shouldn't the High Five really be named the High Ten? All things being equal, it's really ten fingers slapping each other rather than five. Wikiepedia.org defines the High Five as "usually meant to communicate mutual satisfaction to spectators or to extend congratulations from one person to another": It's a joint effort between the two High-Fiving parties, so shouldn't the gesture be named after end product instead of each party's individual contribution?
