Pat yourself on the back with your left hand (or give a lefty buddy a high five with your left, of course), if you're a lefty!
Scissors might be our mortal enemies, but we get advantages in things like boxing and baseball.

I am proclaiming myself as the benevolent dictator/president of the club.
@Fanatical Meat is the secretary and has already organized the November meeting here.

Cheers, mates!

As long as I don’t need to answer @ch33zw1z the Minister of information, I’m in!

When I saw this episode, I was on to the joke immediately
My wife who hates this said something about what a horrible show. I told her to wait, I know it is not going to be how it looks.

still haunts to me to this day when i saw a classmate hold a pencil in his left hand
Dude you have no idea of the struggle. I learned to hold a pencil by copying a kid who sat next to me who knew how to write. Teacher was absolutely clueless.
Basically a 5 year old kid taught me how to hold a pen

special lady friend grew up under Russian occupation. As you may (or may not know), there were officially "no left-handed people" in all of the Soviet Union. ...(just like mentally disabled, crippled, homosexuals, etc). you know, that kind of thing...

Her brother is actually left handed and in grade school, had to sit there with his left hand tied around his torso and was forced to learn how to write with his right hand.

Yeah my Dad who is left handed couldn’t help me. Nuns enforced right handed writing only. Which was pretty smart, smudging ink with you hand sort of sucks. Only downside. We are better at everything else.

And we can't help it, and dont mind telling anyone else either. OTOH, if we dont know something, we just say so.

Just remember...
The right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, so only lefthanders can claim to be in their right mind.

Leftie and proud of it.

As a left handed manlet, I can tell ya we usually surprise. My anecdotal xp with myself and the other lefties I know is that we are obsessive, determined, bossy, and hold grudges forever. I don't know any lazy lefties. If we don't know something, we either go find out everything we can about it, or just don't care until it matters, and then go find out everything about it anyways!

I also dont know any full time lefties. There's usually stuff they do with the right hand or ambidextrously.

I know quite a few right handers that are no good at anything with the left side.
