How to throw your arms in the air, like you just don’t care, in Libya

Revolutionology, ziemlich interessantes Blog eines Soziologen in Libyen. Und von da, wie man in Libyen richtig zu House abgeht:

It’s 2:15 pm on March 31. We’re in a car headed toward the front, which is west of Ajdabiyah. Muhammad, our driver, slips a CD in the car stereo. Arab house music comes on. Joao, a Portuguese photographer sitting behind me, starts pumping his fist in the air to the beat.

Muhammad (in Arabic, to me): “Tell him not to do that, man.”
Me: “Why not?”
Muhammad, laughing: “The rebels will launch a rocket at us.”
Me: “Huh?”
Muhammad: “The fist-pump in the air — that’s what Gaddafi and his guys do. The rebels do this [he puts two fingers up in a "V"]. Stick with the two fingers.”

(Muhammad changes the CD.)

In eastern Libya, avoid the nightclub fist-pump (via MeFi)
