here it goes:

If you dont think men are stupid, check the newspaper. 99% of all the truly horrifying shit going on in this world was initiated, established, perpetrated, enabled, or continued by men. And that includes the wave and the high five, two of historys truly low points.

I am at a loss what this is about? And if high five could bу a greeting I still cannot see what is wave? Obviously not a hand wave (greeting/farewell)/ Standing up and sitting down at stadium?

Who will help me out?
