delphinium BS: Greeting etiquette:Handshakes from Hades (53* d) RE: BS: Greeting etiquette:Handshakes from Hades 08 Sep 02

I've heard that the original handshake was like this, so that the people who were meeting could size up each others' health by feeling for lymph nodes. But checking for knives might aid your health in a more immediate way ...
