You are more than fierce. You are VICIOUS!- Kwanza Jones
I hope this note finds you well. Sooooo, I have a question for you.
Is there a reason why I feel so friggin’ good when I dance in a group with other people?

Thank you so much for your letter.
It made me cry, because I always love the opportunity to spread knowledge and facts.
The answer is this: Stop asking questions and just shush up and dance with people because I said so.
I’m kidding. Question everything.
Here’s the reason. A few years back some of my closest friends – a.k.a. Scientists – and I proved that synchrony and exertion during dance independently raise pain threshold and encourage social bonding.
I hope this helps.
I sincerely appreciate your response.
However, I have no idea what you just said.
But, I’d still like to be your friend.

Don’t worry, we’ll always be friends.
Friends care about each other. Friends reach out to one another. And if possible, friends should really dance together – because it brings them closer to each other.
I’ll say it another way: I have definitely proven that dancing with other people – doing the same moves together + getting sweaty together = actually makes you think about pain less and makes you generally happier and friendlier. That’s why you feel so good!
It’s as if humans were designed to dance together.
Not too bad right?
Not bad at all actually.
Please stop making so much sense.
You’re so weird, and I love it.
You keep me young.
A satisfied SUPERCHARGED Society member now definitely about to call up a few random people and go to the city park with a boombox, ready to move it and get down and dirty.
