One hand clapping sounds just like a tree falling in the forest when there's no one around to hear it.

And to elaborate my answer of "one hand clapping sounds like one hand clapping", after empirical studies I have discovered that you can in fact clap with one hand. That is to say, you can clap the fingers of one hand against the palm of of that same hand, creating a sound similar to the regular clapping (but of course it's less audible) with only one hand. :roll: :wink:

That's still using both hands. Imagine one's tied behind your back, or has been chopped off. :twisted:

No it's not. The fingers and palm are in the same hand. Like when you make a fist? Are you following any of this... :roll:

Hmm, that doesn't seem to make any sound at all when I try it. maybe I need longer fingers. Or a life. No, wait, I tried one of those once, not worth the effort.
Can this method be defined as "Clapping"?

My dictionary defined clapping as "striking the palms of one's hands together". If you have only one hand, the closest thing you can get to clapping is striking your palm with another part of your body. As a public show of gratitude, I would definitely suggest using fingers for that purpose. :wink:

It's more of a "flap flap" sound. So the sound of one hand clapping is "Flap flap"? Seem's rather lame to me...Zeh Buddists, barmy lot... :roll: :wink:

I told you it doesn't make as much sound as "real" clapping, but basically it's still the same sound, being produced with one hand only. :D
