I am left handed but trained to use my right hand. So I write and hold chopsticks with my right hand. I play tennis with my left hand but table tennis with my right hand.
I cannot play baseball cuz I catch and throw with the same hand.
It's pretty messed up.

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.
This is one of those self-empowerment chants that they teach you when you are young, in order to live in and survive in the world, right?

Really? Who is curious about that?


as for me, I'm amphibious!

I have to link this, for those that don't know, because it explains the type of education that I received! dang, it's not in that clip, but this is the origin of where confusing ambidextrous with amphibious comes from....

Just a fact. Live with it - hard as that might be. ;)

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.
I definitely have a few grudges lol

How about those of us who are right handed and left footed?

Goofy footers unite!
