This image which has been wheat pasted all over New York City is pretty cool, according2g.  It’s very Yoko Ono-ish, promoting peace and love which are two concepts I fully embrace.  The instructions are for you to place one hand on the left side and for a stranger to place one hand on the right side.  You cannot remove your hand until you are no longer strangers with the other person whose hand has been placed next to yours. I think that’s worth unplugging from I-pod oblivion for a few moments.  Don’t you?

    Hello, I was in Brooklyn recently and saw one of these posted on a fence. It made me so happy to see! I would like to print this out and post it around my own town in Oklahoma. Do you think that would be okay?

    May I know how frequent this “product” being used by the public? Is there any statistics studies based on this idea cos I think it’s a great idea. And how about the first impression and appearance instinct that people may have which might refrain them from using it. And does it help those social awkward people to use it?
