    Default what is it called?

    So call me ignorant, but I guess this is mostly in the sahara tent where electronic music plays, but there are teams of people that try to organize and trick you into turning around by blowing on you or tapping you on the shoulder, then take pictures of you or text each other different strategies. What is this called? Apparently i'm pretty good at catching people in the act.

    Also, how is it that they "trick" you into turning around? I mean, getting someone to turn around isn't really "tricking" them, is it?

    one person will tap your shoulder, then when you turn to look, the guy on the other side will blow on your back. When you turn to look back at who did it, the guy will step away. It's basically mind games. It's equivalent to when you tap someone on the shoulder, and duck and the guy doesn't see you. Except there are teams of people that do it and coordinate efforts to trick you it's like sometimes 6 or 7 people or more. I don't think i'm going to get any responses honestly, because I dont think these people exactly want to be identified.

    This isn't a "thing," you're probably just schizophrenic.

    It's how people initiate conversation at Coachella. It was in the manual for the years 05-08. They figured everyone knew it by the time Macca was there.

    Let's suss this out a bit more.

    There are organized teams of people that spend their days in the Sahara tent coordinating "trickster taps" of strangers. For the sole purpose of reveling in the sheer delight of seeing people turn around, confused?

    Happened to me also. I was standing in the Sahara minding my business when I heard shouts of "Hey watch out!!! Hey You Look out!!! OH CHRIST!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!! WATCH OUT!!!"...but no way was I going to let those tricksters trick me with their trickery. Nope! I was then crushed by a falling speaker.
