All of this shake shake shake hand waving reminds me of some kind of tribal
Imagine having your phone in your pocket... you go to a dance club, out on
the floor having a great time and when you get home you discover that you
have accidentally exchanged phone numbers with 2 very attractive women, 1
not so attractive woman and 4 men....
All who just happened to be dancing close enough and in the right rhythm
(within tolerances).

I am sure it would be interesting for them too....
