High Infinity

High Infinity
A great man once said: “All things in moderation.” Obviously he wasn’t referring to money, sex or snack foods, but generally speaking you don’t want to overdo things, especially the high five.
Since before the age of man, organisms have expressed satisfaction by slapping appendages with other brorganisms; neighboring trees would celebrate ejecting a woodpecker by reaching across to slap branches, prehistoric whales would slap tails after clicking a particular fresh blubber joke, and even the first amoeba to crawl out of the ocean took one look at land and turned back to his amoebros to say, “High flagellum!”
While animals were smart enough to only high five after something truly epic, everything changed after a group of cavemen witnessed two T-Rexes executing an awkward “stubby five.” Since that time, mankind has effectively neutered the importance of the high five by using it for mundane accomplishments like making a free throw, fixing the photocopier, or getting undercharged for drinks at the bar (Actually, that last one’s pretty sweet). Because of all this senseless high-fivery, the world has started to experience high five inflation, or “high five-lation.”
In response, authorities tried to institute a sliding scale in which a “high one” would acknowledge something mundane (e.g. stealing someone’s cab), a “high three” would be reserved for something slightly awesome (e.g. surprise flashing when a chick wearing a skirt stands on a subway grate), and a “high five” would only be invoked for something truly awesome (e.g. getting undercharged for drinks at the bar – the more I think about it the more I think that’s pretty much as good as it gets).
Unfortunately, the high 1-5 system had its flaws, notably how difficult it was for people who are missing digits or can’t count – often the same people. That’s why I’ve yet again come to the rescue by introducing the “high infinity” (copyright, patent pending… all that crap).
Please save the high infinity for only the most awesome of the awesome and remember: you’re not doing it right if you DON’T break your hand.

  • Gaz

    This is to be the last post?! What a shame, I only just started getting into it! (I should have started from the beginning)!

    I was late to getting into this show, I first started watching it when I first started dating my girlfriend a good few months ago, and since then I was hooked, it’s one of my favorite comedies. I’m almost to the last season now when I learned Barney Stinson’s blog was real!

    I like the vibe this entry brought, and I look forward to reading the rest.

  • Spider-Man

    Wow, this blog should have had a more fitting send off.

  • Ruchi Iyer

    Truly agreed !

  • JustAwesomeIsraeliGuy


  • Freddie

    Please put up something on the blog again. Since i’ve seen all season… I just need some more of it! xD

  • yameimei


  • BehnamMohammadi

    I have literally watched every episode of the show for more than 10 times! I will always remember this serial, because it changed and shaped my mind about life in NY and the US. I hope it is true. It also helped me realize that sometimes a group of friends, hanging out with each other, talking about daily silly stuff and etc. can really be everything one can desire in this world. Thank you for this great show. I was going to complain about how rushy and hasty it was in the last season, but it’s all passed. Thank you all for putting smile on our faces :-)

  • Clay
