Scientists at Aberystwyth University in the UK discovered that handshakes transfer 10 times as many bacteria as a meeting of fists, while a palm-to-palm high-five was somewhere in-between.

On the other hand, the model shows that those who tell lies to cover up a misdeed or manipulate the situation, known as anti-social lying, slowly isolate others from their social networks. The model may help psychologists better understand the effects of lying in online communities.
