    Did you know:
    * Most left-handers draw figures facing to the right? (It's true, I should know!)
    * 1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left-handed - 250% more than the normal level?
    * Left-handers are generally more intelligent, better looking, imaginative and multi-talented than right handers? :p

    Have YOU hugged a lefty today? [points to self] See, I haven't been hugged yet today.... ;) :p

    [Nick leaves to secretly plan the Left-Handed revolution with other lefties]

    Well, my dad is left-handed, so there goes that theory (except that imaginative part-remember the penta water story?).

    Ehh, as long as you lefties don't join Nick's revolt... I don't want to have to turn back another one of those..

    (There was once a topic about a lefty revolution on a board I used to be a member of. it was pretty funny.)

    Yay to me... I love Lefties... I'm a Lefty... I love me...

    And it's true. We do draw characters facing right...

    And it's also true. We are more attractive, intelligent, suave, and eloquent. Now if we could only work those can openers properly...

    Hmm... I didn't hear about this until the day after. (1:30 AM for me) I never got to hug a lefty.

    Yay!

    how could i, a left-hander for 18 years, have missed such an important day?? lefties are underappreciated. people expect us to write in those 3-ringed notebooks, but the rings are always in the way. it's not fun having to take out a piece of paper, write on it, and then put it back in. we get discriminated against simply because we are different from the majority. next thing you know, we won't be able to vote or something. i propose that congress pass a bill making it illegal to discriminate based on left or right-handedness. that would mean everything available in right-handed form must also be available in left-handed form. we lefties have feelings, too. i think all the righties are just mad that we are so smart and good looking. heck, i would want to oppress me if i were them. lord knows i'm so smart and secksee that everybody wants me. i just think we should have equal rights. women and minorities fought for equal rights, and i think now it's our turn.

    lol, cc. it is not legal to discriminate based on right or left handedness. i just think the big businesses dont make left handed products because you guys only comprise a tenth of the population, and it wouldnt be such a big profit for them.

    ps, try using the binder backwards--with rings on the right. might help. then youll have your very own left-handed binder. :p

    Yeah. You'll just be writing upside down. What seems to often happen to me is that I simply have to learn how to use the right-handed product, though sometimes in a wierd way. Also, when I write, I end up getting graphite dust (or ink, or whatever) all over the side of my hand. Annoying!

    Hmmm, I'm left-handed and I draw most of my figures facing left. I do draw some facing right(especially dragons for some reason), but the majority of my figures face left. I can definitely relate to the binder problem, and to having graphite all over my hand. It's really annoying when I have to write on a white board. I have to hold my hand in the air off the board so I don't erase what I'm writing. It makes my hand really tired, and my writing sometimes gets so sloppy I could almost do as well or better with my right hand. Do any of you have friends/family/classmates/whatever who don't know you're left-handed? I remember I would be sitting in school writing or drawing or something, and one of the kids in my class(or sometimes even the teachers) would walk past and look at me and go "You're left-handed?". This has happened to me several times. It's kind of funny(but also annoying) when the same person does it two or three times.:lol: :rolleyes:

    Happens to me often, Umbreon. And I also have horrible handwriting -- seems to come with the territory.

    I must agree, us lefties have gotten the short end of the stick. I mean, what's up with door knobs being on the right and most of the top of the line computer mice being right hand only?

    Considering that we're more intelligent and attractive than the other 90% of the population, you'd think we'd be running the world by now, wouldn't ya!? j/k :p

    I demand justice!

    Well, doorknobs are only on the right half the time -- the other side of the door has them on the left. I actually ended up learning to use a right-handed mouse, because left-handed mice weren't available at all when I learned.

    I think everybody should be ambidextrous(both-hander) like me... I don't care where are the rings on my notebook.

    Lucky you, Skantid, but you do know that being left-handed, right-handed, or ambidextrous is genetic, right?

    Skantid New Member

    Yeah, I know, it was only a joke. Anyway, being ambidextrous isn't as good as people think, we tend to do some things with a certain hand. And when we draw, our style usually depends on the hand we're using.
