The left handed thread.

I was wondering how many other left handed people there were on this this forum so I thought I would start a thread for all things left handed.

Here is one of my favourite left handed people.

I'm also a leftie

Although I only use my left arm for eating and writing. I use my right arm for everything else. Used to be able to write with both but haven't done it in years.

My brother is left handed. Always played golf right handed though.

I once learned to use my feet to do things. I was dead good at it and could even open a Zippo and light up a cigarette. I do weird things like that, just in case I lose both hands. I also learned to navigate and use my mother's house without opening my eyes. So having a wee etc.. Must be cool to be ambidextrous. My cousin just lost all of his fingers in a grass shredder on a lawn mower and it was his writing hand. He's not doing to well with his left either apparently.

I also prefer left hand drive cars to right hand drive because I don't like shifting with my left. It feels weird.

Oh, and I am going to convert my bike to LHD as well

I am surprised you are not a lefty.

I am sorry to hear about your cousin.

As to being ambidextrous it is something a lot of left handed people can do as everything is made for right handed people and you just learn to deal with it. I am a left handed person by birth but am good with both hands which comes in handy like when I was at school doing woodwork and used to get tied using my left hand I could just switch to my right and carry on. I have still got some of the stuff I made 40 years ago doing woodwork at school.

You mentioned Tesla in another thread earlier, he was a lefty too.

Yeah most lefties say they have to use both. I wonder what causes it? it's obviously something to do with motor function in your brain.

My missus is left handed, it's a little odd to see her do things cack handed but she excels in others.

I'm left-handed as well. Only thing I can do better with my right hand is control a mouse.

Trying to cut paper with right-handed scissors.........

Yep that old trick you see in the movies where they throw an object towards a person will not work with a lefty, they will just catch it with the closest hand.

im a lefty for most things. But I have no issues using right hand. Except for writing.

You know what though.. had we lived a few hundred years ago we would have been executed.

Left=Latin for Sinister or sinistra. We were considered evil people, and not the right hand of god
