When men's lips meet

When men's lips meet

There are 25 comments on the www.guardian.co.uk story from Apr 18, 2010, titled When men's lips meet. In it, www.guardian.co.uk reports that:

Of the gestures exchanged between males, there are two common types. First, the handshake, which has over recent years exploded into a veritable rainbow of variations, from the traditional polite handshake through to the terrorist fist bump, taking in all manner of slaps and tickles along the way. The other is the hug, which has gone in the opposite direction, distilling itself into one uniform act; a brief squeeze, followed by two strong slaps across the shoulders.

In terms of actual physical contact, that's about it. A rogue uncle might rub his knuckles up and down your scalp, but that's a rarity. Kissing, meanwhile, just doesn't happen. Keep that in mind when you consider the reaction to an already famous meeting of lips yesterday afternoon.

England is part of Great Britain and English is the national language of Great Britain. So, I do believe that they teach English. The queen and the royal family speak proper English. Just like in the US, alot of the people speak regional dialects. American English is derived from British English but it is not the same language. We use words borrowed from other languages as part of American English. Many common American English words were borrowed from non-English speaking settlers including the French, Spanish, German, and Scandinavian languages. Some common American English words are very unique to American English because we borrowed them from the Native-Americans and Polynesians. Also, after over 200 years of separation and a world that evolved from horse and buggies to space flight, the languages have drifted apart with the Brits using one word for something and Americans using another. Examples would be petrol vs gas, lift vs elevator, lory vs semi or tractor-trailer.
