If they'll even shake your hands. Interestingly enough, one of my nephews (from my wife's side), very shy Filipino, has one of the tightest grips of anyone I shake hands with. Its surprising to me because he barely talks.

My grip is strong due to frequent masturbation and/or sex.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Changed dentists recently and met the new one the other day after my cleaning. Guy had the weakest hand shake ever. He was around 60 and was in good shape. Confusing.

No physical labor growing up. Think how Wags developed his legendary grip:

When I was in kindergarten, my grandma called me out on my terrible handshake during the church peace be with you thing. She said "you don't want anyone to think you're a pathetic weakling do you?" Ever since then, I break hands.

Are Socialists Physically Weak?
An intriguing new study has provoked the right-wing blogosphere, but this line of research presents more questions than answers.

I think it's douchey to show how strong/manly you are with a hard handshake. I just try to mirror whatever the other person does.

A Hacker's Dream: Millennials Re-Use of Passwords

The research, conducted by Wakefield Research, found that although online anxiety is rampant, password practices remain sloppy. For instance, 81% of people surveyed use the same password for more than one account. Although they’re more digitally savvy, this increases among millennials, where 92% say they use the same password across multiple accounts.

Pretty interesting article....

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?

The decline in dating tracks with a decline in sexual activity. The drop is the sharpest for ninth-graders, among whom the number of sexually active teens has been cut by almost 40 percent since 1991. The average teen now has had sex for the first time by the spring of 11th grade, a full year later than the average Gen Xer. Fewer teens having sex has contributed to what many see as one of the most positive youth trends in recent years: The teen birth rate hit an all-time low in 2016, down 67 percent since its modern peak, in 1991.

Even driving, a symbol of adolescent freedom inscribed in American popular culture, from Rebel Without a Cause to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, has lost its appeal for today’s teens. Nearly all Boomer high-school students had their driver’s license by the spring of their senior year; more than one in four teens today still lack one at the end of high school. For some, Mom and Dad are such good chauffeurs that there’s no urgent need to drive. “My parents drove me everywhere and never complained, so I always had rides,” a 21-year-old student in San Diego told me. “I didn’t get my license until my mom told me I had to because she could not keep driving me to school.” She finally got her license six months after her 18th birthday. In conversation after conversation, teens described getting their license as something to be nagged into by their parents—a notion that would have been unthinkable to previous generations.

Independence isn’t free—you need some money in your pocket to pay for gas, or for that bottle of schnapps. In earlier eras, kids worked in great numbers, eager to finance their freedom or prodded by their parents to learn the value of a dollar. But iGen teens aren’t working (or managing their own money) as much. In the late 1970s, 77 percent of high-school seniors worked for pay during the school year; by the mid-2010s, only 55 percent did. The number of eighth-graders who work for pay has been cut in half. These declines accelerated during the Great Recession, but teen employment has not bounced back, even though job availability has.

Listen, Mr. tGreenWay, I do not take kindly to your abuse!  You have become a bully and it will not be tolerated any longer.  In light of this, I challenge you to a duel.  Pistols at dawn.  Please meet me on Munn Field.  And just for the record, I'm not a millenial and have a mighty fine handshake.

Thank you and have a beautiful day.   Dickfist out!
