Fauci says people should 'just forget about shaking hands' even after the coronavirus threat is over

www.businessinsider.com...

Shaking hands used to mean something. To us older folk, a handshake was a signed, notarized, legally binding document.

In the movie, "Oceans 13" the premise was that if you shook Frank Sinatra's hand you had to act honerably.

You used to be able to judge a man's character by the way he shook your hand.


The history of the handshake dates back to the 5th century B.C. in Greece. It was a symbol of peace, showing that neither person was carrying a weapon.

deepenglish.com...

Now they want us to "fist bump" or "touch elbows".


Personally, I think I will always shake hands and will prefer to deal with people who shake hands.

If you're of the type that want to "jazz hands", "high five", "fist bump" or "flash your groin" as a substitute for a handshake, then more power to you.

I will always shake hands.

I give a chunky style cough into my palm before a handshake...let's me know if the other guy is a puss or not.

Ah yes! the limp wristed handshake..the test of character, us aliens never went for that old chestnut.

No! I'll just go for our form of greeting, that being a kick in the goolies...works every time. Thank you Leslie Nielson



To add, it's probably now a part of our genome after billions of years, and why our eyes are so big!

Yeah, I haven't stopped shaking men's hands or hugging female friends when we've crossed paths in the time of COVID. My give a goddamn busted awhile back and I haven't seen any need to repair it. Anybody with an issue over it is probably some fear filled dweeb I don't want to shake hands with anyway, and I'm alright with that.

You grab my hand if I don't offer it, it will be akin to grabbing a vagina I don't have.

You are warned. #meAlso

I don't do fisting with other men, sorry. A handshake means something between people though.



A physical handshake involves two people and shows an acceptance of the other person and what they are offering. In creates a physical connection with that person.

themodernvedic.com...


Couldn't find a source for this one but I think it was the Polynesian Kahunas that believed a handshake created a spiritual connection between people as well.

USA 2020 = 45,000 Covid-19 Deaths + 60,000 Flu Deaths/320,000,000 people = 0.03% chance for any single American to die from Covid-19 or Flu this year.

Stop offering to shake someone's hand? Nope!

Let the non-thinking sheep controlled by MSM and Authorities do the compliance dance.

We can't even see smiles anymore because of these darn masks that make me sweat which makes me look like I have the covid-19. So irritated after the liquor store run in high 80's degree heat; they won't let you come in the store without a mask.


ETA: My Mom saw a man at the grocery store a couple days ago using women's disposable underwear as a mask.

Shaking someone's hand tells you a lot about a person. I don't want to have much to do with a human who will not shake my hand. I understand some folks have problems or hang ups and usually they will say something when you put your hand out. This sounds pretty stupid..and therefore probably true in this day. Thats fine, just one less person I dont need to know, or do business with.

Fox (MSM) and Trump await your attention and further conditioning.

Good night, you are still quoting those numbers, even after they admit the BS that comes with them?

Yikes.

I'll still take a handshake, preferably a hug.

If I die, I die.
