Do you put on your belt upside down. Turns out I do and had no idea!

What about greeting people with the European kiss? Bump noses

There is lots of weirdnesses that left handed people take for granted....

So...for the other lefties on the board....

There it is again. I'm alternately sinster, gauche, more intelligent, likely to go insane, clumsy, a bit dim, more creative, a victim of prejudice, more ambidexterous, etc., etc., etc....
Worse than that, according to Dr. Stanley Coren's research in 'The Left-Hander Syndrome', the number of males living past the age of 80 is less than 1%. I'm being persecuted by the Invisible Pathologist!

Left handers could be left with no shop!

Sohoís world-famous Left-handed Shop in groovy Beak Street, has announced it will be closing down next month. The tragic event has been blamed on a recent decision by the shopís manager Ben "Lefty" Winkle to employ only left-handed members of staff.

Since 1985 the store had been a haven for the troubled and sometimes sad members of our society with dominant left hands, providing left-handed can-openers, scissors, tennis rackets, cutlery and Bibles to name just five or six. Now however, these items - which are essential in making left-handers feel as though they belong in normal society - are no longer available and sit uselessly in a warehouse in Wandsworth.

Things started to go wrong in June when Mr Winkle became sick and tired of the constant bickering between his right and left-handed sales assistants about who was better and what was 'normal'.

His controversial sack

His controversial move to sack the right-handers rocked the special-needs retail world and even cropped up in the House Of Commons when Lionel Blair got cross and swore. It all blew over though when Mr Winkle offered the right-handers money to leave quietly - which they did, clutching a reputed £50.00 each in their good right hands.

With a full team of Lefties, the shop started experiencing problems almost immediately.

Huge queues of disgruntled and angrified customers formed as the disadvantaged staff fumbled and mucked up simple till transactions due to their disability. On some days, the shop didnít even open up as the frustrated staff stood outside and took it in turns struggling to make the right-handed key turn in the right-handed lock of the (ironically) right handed door.

Further problems arose in the left-handed Mail Order department - source of over half the shopís income - because infuriated Despatch Officer Matthew Oakley found the tape-gun and franking machine impossible to operate. Profits plummeted and the shop opened for the final time last Friday.

Is disability-based retail fundamentally flawed?

Since this article was written, we are sorry to report that the Red-Headed Store in Dundee has also been forced to close due to wild temper-tantrums and day-long arguments between its orange-top staff and strawberry blonde customers.

60% left. 40% right.

I wonder how much of my score is because I was raised in a right handed family?

Imagine....if you could have grown up in a left handed family doing left handed things.....ah...to dream.....

Being left-handed is officially cool! Just look at this list of famous left-handed people: Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, John McEnroe, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo

mmmmmmm.....I wonder if johnny depp or clive owens is a lefty....I will have to ride off and find out.......

oh by way all lefties...perhaps you should join the left handers club

Peapod, the BBC link is absolute rubbish. Don't believe a word of it. Probably written by a righthander to boot! Lefthandedness is pathological, not genetic. Perhaps the only conclusion one can draw from the mix of stereotypes and myths that surround we 'lefties' is that we truly are immensely clever in order to survive and thrive in a righthanded world.
Blahhhhttt!

PS: Twila, almost all lefthanders are raised in righthanded families. Statistics don't lie. 13% of 13% divided by two (assumes two parents) = .00845 or less than one percent.
We truly are alone!

Pea, you must be referring to the Children's BBC which is distinctly different than the Grownups BBC. The Children's BBC is run by Polly Toynbee, a Socialistic Mama of the first order. Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
The Beeb, on the other hand, is run by Richardson, a wannabe Conservative, ready to snap the wayward Corp back into line. I think he's Lefthanded. Ms. Toynbee, on the other hand, is just Pathalogical.
Burp, sorry, Pardon Me.
PS: Who the heck is H?

I think we should all become Mensa members, and drive out the righties with our quirkiness...

Then left-handedness would truly be recognized by all as being synonymous with genius...

I heard somewhere that some babys are twins then one dissapears and that the same percentage or dispearing twins is the same percentage of left handed people.

So what that means is that we're all really two people in one?

Now there's a theory I hadn't heard before. That would explain the pathological aspect of our condition. On the whole, however, I'd rather be in Philadelphia.

Vanni, I see no point in being members of Mensa. They keep coming to us for advice.
