A bit of trivia:
The origin of a handshake lies in Medival History. By offering a right hand to a stranger, a hand that could otherwise be use to draw a sword, men were overtly displaying their intentions of peace toward one another. Nowadays, from signing a treaty to settling a bet with friends, "shaking on it" remains a symbolic sign of agreement.
