    What say you, Wordforge? What greeting should humanity take up to replace the filthy, outdated handshake?

    What about that thing Luke Skywalker does to signal R2 when he is about to get pushed off the plank?

    Let’s do that.

    Which likely consequence would be more important to you: better pension solvency for distressed welfare systems or the impact on co2 emission? Or is it (accelerated) redistribution of wealth to the next gen?

    I like where your head's at, but ideally we should not need illegal aliens for the new greeting.

    I voted for Japanese bow. I've always wanted to test the close range effectiveness of a Japanese yumi bow but never had a valid reason. Game on!

    Too expensive. You've got feed them, clean them and their cage, get them their shots, than you have to let them run around in the backyard by building a wall they can play climbing over while you shoot at them with NERF guns.

    My dog is going to get jealous.

    If you allow too much exercise, the meat tends to get stringy and tough.

    I've been using the rochambeau greeting.

    It certainly helps keeping people at a distance.
