#1 If you've ever stacked'em '7 high and a tie', you've probably got a pretty good grip, and I'm not just talking about a handshake.

..as in a 'weaker grip of reality'. 'Feelings' though are much stronger.

#6 Have we became a bunch of old duffers, carrying on about the "worthless current generation"?

#7 These kids of the West will meet ISIS,
Each seeking their own paradises:
Soft hands, in both houses,
From fondling their mouses...
Er, make that their pointing devices.

#10 Learned years ago: when shaking a lot of hands--from doing stand-ups at public venues--make sure you cup your hand like you're trying to hold water in it, before you extend your hand.

You don't get the painful crunch from strong handshakes that you get when your palm is flat.

And, my old golf buddy had terrible arthritis in his hands, so, my current default is very light pressure when shaking hands. And, the adoption of the fist bump removes a lot of hand shaking. And a lot less chance to get serious stranger goo on your hands.

So they were stronger when they were 5? English grammar is not for wimps.

#12 I shook Cam Neely's hand in a comedy club about twenty years ago; he damn near crushed my hand, and I'm not exactly a wallflower. Now that's a strong grip!

#14 Week grip comes from playing video games instead of swinging a baseball bat.
