Body Language

1__________

Shaking hands is a polite gesture indicating friendship and acceptance. At one time, however,meeting with a stranger aroused suspicion and fear. To prevent each other from suddenly attacking, strangers joined right hands as a pledge of non-aggression, thus demonstrating that neither party was about to use a weapon. Handshaking is now the activity practised by both men and women not only to greet one another, but to seal a contract as well.

2__________

The American “OK” sign, the joining of the thumb and forefinger in a circle, indicates that all is well or perfect. The “OK” sign acquired its modern connotation from the ancient world,

wherein the circle itself was one of the oldest and most common symbols for perfection. The verbal expression “OK” is native to the United States and was formed in support of the letter “O” indicating that something was as perfect as a circle.

3__________

When not used in hitchhiking, the thumbs-up gesture in American culture typically indicates “I like that”, while the thumbs-down gesture indicates your negative feelings towards something.

The gesture has been linked to the time of the Roman arena, where the emperor supposedly ordered life or death for a gladiator by turning thumbs up or thumbs down.

4__________

Crossing one’s fingers serves as protection from bad luck or from the penalties associated with lying. Thus, when people wish for good luck, they cross their fingers, and when they wish not to be held accountable for a lie, they cross their fingers and hide their arms behind their backs to not let on that they are lying.

Once upon a time there was an old man who dearly loved his only son.

His son enjoyed riding horses and swimming in the swift waters of mountain

rivers, but most of all he liked hunting. The old man was proud that his son was

full of courage but he was afraid of his passion for hunting. Once in a dream he

saw that his son would be killed by a huge lion. The poor father was afraid that

this dream would come true and decided to save his only son. The man built a

nice big house for his son and set in a high place where he could keep his eye on

him. The father didn’t allow the young man to leave the house. In order to

please and entertain his son, the old man put paintings of every kind of animal in

one of the rooms. There was a buffalo, a wolf, an elephant, a rhino and a deer in

the pictures. Among them there was a lion. But looking at all the animals did not

distract the young man from his boredom.

One day, he approached the painting and spoke angrily to the lion in it:

You damned beast, it’s because of you and my father’s lying dream that I am

kept here in this prison. I can’t do what I want. I can neither climb the mountains

nor hunt in the forest. It’s your fault. What can I do to you?” And as he said

this, he struck his fist against the wall to blind the lion. But a small sharp piece

of wood got under his fingernail and the young man could not get it out. The old

man called for a doctor but the doctor wasn’t able to help his son. The finger

became red and hurt unbearably, it increased to an enormous size. Soon the

young man died of the fierce fever. The lion, even though it was only a painted

one, had indeed killed the young man, just as his father had foreseen.
