You'll catch more flies with sirup then with vinegar.

I think so. A clenched fist resembles fighting, which proves nothing. The open hand is open to new ideas and thoughts, which makes you the stronger person in the long run.

Slap!

Metaphorically? Yes. According to my physics book? No.

An open-hand is the best way, and if they annoy you...

*Slap*

Metaphorically, yes. Although you should still always talk softly but carry a big stick.
Literally, probably also yes really. If they're clenching their fist, most people will tense the muscles in their fore-arm, which makes for a less powerful punch.

If you've ever been bitch-slapped, you *know* the open hand has more power... Once had a red hand print on my face. I don't even get that when I'm kickboxing.

You can't break bones with an open hand.
<_<
...I didn't just say that.

So you're saying that when you punch you shouldn't make a fist?

And of course a clenched fist is more powerful, metaphorically as well as literally. Have you seen anything accomplished (anything important or relevant I should amend) with someone who sought the less violent method? Sure, a few examples come to mind. There's that half starved Indian, that sainted bitch, and that negro that gave that lovely speech.

But I mean really, to change the world, you have do it with a bang. Hitler was a man of action, of revolution and of swift change. And when we bitch-slapped the Japanese, did we do it with an empathetic demeanor, or did we drop a nuke on their ass?

Also, the choices for this question make no sense.

Good job, moderators.

An open hand covers more area when you slap someone ;)

You could destroy someone with an open hand just as well as a fist, I suppose.
