    Then some years down the line, the next generation’s pluggers (who do high-fives and first-bumps) will think of handshaking a thing of the past.

    Nothin’ wrong with a hearty abrazo either.

    “Abrazo” is also an abrasive dish-washing pad sold in Germany.
    I prefer the Thai “wei”, myself.

    Can’t stand that hug and kiss nonsense….there are some people I don’t want to touch, let alone, kiss.

    the Pluggers’ country was founded and has it base on a good firm handshake!

    Here is something for you pacifists and other folks. Handshakes and other greeting gestures of trust were invented by WARRIORS.
    That’s right, men who actually fought with weapons invented it. Not only did it show that their main hand was empty of a weapon. But it showed the other person he was willing to talk.

    I kinda miss the genteel way a gentleman greeted a lady, That being he bowed over her hand and kissed the air above it.

    Nowadays that would probably be classified as assault…sorry to say.

    And as originally performed, it lets you check the other guy’s right sleeve for a hidden dagger. You know, just in case. ;)

    Pluggers prefer to transmit as many of their germs as possible to people around them.
