The sound of one hand clapping

“Two hands clap and there is a sound. What is the sound of one hand?” If you ask me, far too much time has been spent pondering this question. One reason for that is that I can literally clap one-handed, so I know exactly what it sounds like. Another reason is that if you define clapping as a two-handed activity, it makes no sense to imagine it as a one-handed activity. It’s just philosophical fluff meant to give students something to waste their time on while the professor daydreams of being at the race track (another thing I happen to understand at a personal level). What does this have to do with racing? The sound of one hand driving of course.

I confess, I still have no idea exactly what the sound of one hand driving is, but it sure as hell looks like shit.
