Have you ever heard someone say that they wished for the good old days? When a person’s word was their bond and that all you needed was a handshake. Well, we are now being told what you probably suspected. That maybe we should question the handshake after all. Not for contract purposes, but for health reasons.
Here’s an article from Brewster Miller that discusses a recent British study finding that fist bumping is better than handshaking, because it prevents the spreading of germs. According to the study, many infections from the common cold can be passed via a handshake. Unfortunately, many people simply do not wash their hands. According to the scientists, fist bumping is only dry contact and the back of the hand has less bacteria compared to the palm.
I guess if someone sneezes and sticks out their hand to shake… it’s best to offer a fist? Maybe people will miss the old days when a person’s fist was as good as a contract?
DID YOU KNOW that the oldest known goldfish lived to be 41-years-old? He was named Fred. Yep, Fred the Goldfish.
And for pic o’ day, doesn’t this seem like a good “get-out-of bed” thought?
