Thread: what is it called?

  1. #1

    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.

    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?

    Almost everytime I am in the Sahara I feel breath on the back of my neck. I always just chalked it off as the person behind me blowing out air after dancing hard or jumping up and down a bunch

    no big fucking deal
