University Is Banning Clapping!

posted by @TobyChilliShow - 

Graduations, sports games, performances and many other events have a common theme...they involve clapping! 

Some people live for the applause of an audience or a few claps of approval during a presentation but this university is saying otherwise!

At the University of Manchester in England, the student union passed a resolution banning clapping at their events.

It seems the students are worried that the loud noise of clapping and yelling are an issue for those with anxiety or sensory issues.

So instead of clapping, students are now encouraged to use “jazz hands” to show their enthusiasm.
