    Happy International Left Hand Day,
    Just wondering how many of you folks are left handed, I for one can say I am!

    Did you Know Left Handed people are generally more creative because they use both sides of the brain, information is constantly traveling across synapses but in a right handed people they normally stay on the left hand side where precise details are processed.

    A right handed person uses more of the left side of their brain.
    A left handed person uses more of the right side of their brain (although in total they generally use more of it as a whole).

    90% of the world are right handed!

    I'm left handed for writing, but some things I do right handed or amidextrously. I knit the same as right handers, for example. I can just about write right handed, slowly.

    I didn't know it was left handed day. Shouldn't we have about 36 of them each year? Anyhow, to celebrate I'm going to go the wrong way round a roundabout.

    I was originally a leftie but was "persuaded" to swap in nursery school so I'm pretty ambidextrous

    Sinister people.

    Go back far enough and you'd all have been hunted down as the devils followers or worse!

    My brother's one of you, and he's definitely sinister! (After all he does live in Brussels....)

    Other way round. Sinister meaning evil comes from the Latin for left - left handers were considered to be evil. Just like every other identifiable minority group in history!

    I'm right handed, Mrs Ian is left handed.
    Ian jnr at 2&half looks like he's gonna be a left hander too. Best start beating it out of him.

    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous

    I am mostly right handed but also use both hands quite a lot, often changing hands just for better access to tasks when using tools.
    I can also write left handed, upside down and in mirror writing.

    As there will be a few gauchers reading this thread, has anyone else noticed that they're a bit overenthusiastic with the rear brake (with a standard UK set up)? When I get round to changing my brake cables I might try swapping them round.

    I write with my right hand and throw a ball with my left hand.

    I was on a train once and started to write something with my right hand, the woman sat opposite gave out a little shriek. Trouble was I was already writing something else with my left hand. I've stopped that trick now, it messed with peoples minds too much.
