A B5 discussion question:

Why do you suppose the custom is to go barefoot at a Centauri Ascension Day celebration?


Probably because boots are a good place to hide knives *g*.

The 'hands of friendship' gesture borrowed from the Romans is, like our handshake, a weapons check that evolved into a custom. The no shoes rule probably has similar roots.

And you know, I bet G'Kar *did* have a dagger on him at Londo's Ascension Day celebration, just as a matter of principle ...

What she said.

And you bet he did.*g*
