I wouldn't mind clapping till my hands bled, as long as I survived.
Ah but being injured means you're going to be one of the few to stop earlier. That's why you have to pace frequency and intensity of clapping.

Maybe this was one of the games to weed out the undesireables. Rational thinkers are going to do whatever it takes to minimize injury and maintain their endurance. The people who panic cannot perform under stress and are toast.
