CNN speaks of Donald Trump's "attactics" against Ben Carson.

Earlier this week they spent some time discussing chest bumps. No, not that

Does anyone know when this peculiar practice began?  I doubt that I was
aware of it more than a dozen years ago, if then.

Similarly (and maybe we've discussed this), I first became aware of
high-fiving in the early 1980s.
