Why did Garry Moore shake hands with his left hand?
Could it have anything to do with the fact that Moore always had a cigarette in his right hand?

Yes. Although a right-hand shake is the custom, both honest people and dishonest people pay little regard to which hand is used to 'seal' the bet. An honest person intends to …honor the agreement, and a dishonest person intends to welch-- whichever way they can-- regardless of which hand was used for the 'shake'. Recent historical research has shown that no honest person over the age of 12 years old has ever uttered the phrase, "...it doesn't count because I used my left hand! ha ha ha..." That research had an error rate of 3.7 percent. Additionally, through birth anomolies, accident, punishment, or war, a number of people either don't have a right hand, or their right hand doesn't work properly. Those people are allowed to 'seal' bets with either their left hand -- or as the Christian Bible commands-- with their word only. (Matthew 5:37, James 5:12)
Yes but as most people are right handed it maight be more prtactical to learn to shake with your right hand. (That is my opinion only)
Right hand. Handshakes were originally right handed, therefore they are. So unless you're in some Left Hand Association of some sort that think being left handed is super cool… so they do stuff like that, then handshakes should involve right hands.. By the way, being left handed rocks! [:
people shake hands to greet each other and thus it becomes an introduction to further friendly conversation. In the days when people carried weapons, knives and swords, an out…streched arm without it holding an offensive weapon suggested that people were not going to harm each other
Uncontrollable hand shaking could be tremors. There are manyproblems that can cause tremors which may include: alcohol abuse,neurological disorders, overactive thyroid, liver …failure, andmore.
in the cowbow days! if you trusted someone you would shake hands with them with the hand that you WEREN'T holding any hidden blades and stuff (your shield hand!!!) And today… no guns.
No. Hitler did not shake hands with his left hand. There are many photographs which can prove this, also note that there is no photograph of Adolf Hitler which portrays his sh…ake hand with the left hand. For visual confirmation, search about "Stauffenberg" on Wikipedia, there will be a photograph on that page which shows Hitler shaking hands with his right hand.
Because the official Girl Scout handshake calls for you to hold up the Girl Scout hand in your right hand. Not sure about the Boy Scouts.
Why, with your own left hand. :P
In most cultures, it is traditional to shake with the right hand . In Europe, for example, this was a sign of trust; you allowed the other person to clasp your sword hand,… preventing you from initiating an attack. Whereas in the Middle East, this was and is a sign of respect; using the left hand for most tasks was taboo, as it was used exclusively for matters of personal hygiene.
Yes because in one episode she was playing ping-pong with Ty using her left hand.
Actually, Cub Scouts don't shake with the left hand. The Cub Scout handshake is done with the right hand, with the index and middle fingers extended and placed against the oth…er person's wrist. The Boy Scout handshake is an ordinary handshake done with the left hand.
I do not and most people do not. Those who do is either by habit or because your left-handed most likely.
Russell wrote the following, that's why he cannot shake with his right hand: Hello I thought I'd write an official message to you because the news of my recent stay in hosp…ital has started to emerge and, as well as receiving lots of nice messages from well-wishers, there have also been lots of interesting theories (and a fair few bizarre ones) posted on twitter, so I thought I'd let you know what actually happened. I've been in hospital for A WEEK. I've been on morphine, I've been flushed through with antibiotics, I've had two operations and now I'm bandaged up and typing this with my left hand. That's right. I've managed to ruin my other hand. No I didn't break it doing press ups on a collapsible chair. I had to have 2 operations on an infected thumb. When I came round from the first operation they told me that at one point they thought they'd have to amputate my thumb, which would really have hampered my hitchhiking skills. So that's it really, you can either feel sorry for me or do what my mates did and send me a massive foam hand. On a serious note I'd like to thank all the nurses, doctors and various people that looked after me. Russ
It really depends on how you shake, left, or right. To some people it may not matter, and to others it's not their thing. Usually left hand shakes are to show honor in Boy Sco…uts in most occasions. The shake is up to you as long as the other person agrees, so then it's fair.
