Happy Left-Handers Day!

Monday August 13th: Celebrate your right to be left-handed.

On 13th August 1992 the Club launched International Left-Handers Day, an annual event when left-handers everywhere can celebrate their sinistrality and increase public awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed. This event is now celebrated worldwide, and in the U.K. alone there were over 20 regional events to mark the day in 2001...

Any fellow left-handers out there?

I'm Lefty, well actually, now I am AMBIDEXTROUS. I am a Left-handed guitarist, however. I turned a right hand guitar upside down (Hendrix-Albert King STyle) and started plucking away. I taught my self how to play, 1 because I am a natural musician (most left handers are more talented in their field than the righties; especially in creative arts such as MUSIC), 2 because no righty guitarists would teach a lefty. :( I actually was born lefty, and MOM drilled me to write with my right hand. I mostly write with my right hand about 60% of the time, and write with my left about 40% of the time. Everything else, I either do mostly with the left, or half and half. I get proud when I discover someone else is lefty, esp. other musicians; but the funny thing is, most if not all lefties tend to be ambidextrous. right handers, on the other hand, are NOT. HURRAY Lefties.

I'm left-handed too, I agree with the ambidextrous thing though. Being that I was taught how to do every day things all by right-handed people, I learned to do most things with my right hand. I do have an aunt who is left-handed, but she was forced to use her right hand in school, so now she only eats with her left.

I'm also with everyone on the scissors, I can't cut worth a flip even with left-handed ones. As for spiral notebooks, I used to be able to find ones without the three holes punched and just use them backwards, then punch holes if I needed to.

And Steve, the desk thing was hard! I was lucky to be thin enough that I could usually just turn the desk sideways and site with desk part on my left side and my legs between the metal bars.
