Informal survey: Are you right handed or left.

Okay are you male or female and are you left or right handed. The reason I asked is I sell gloves for a living, nope just kidding. I have noticed that more males appear to be left handed than females.

I am a female and I am left handed. Although I am completely ambidexterious.

I'm female, right-handed, and although not ambidextrous, I could easily get by using my left. With a little practice, I'd be right good at it. Or left good at it, as the case may be.

Five you do know that the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body ergo we are the only ones in our right mind. Crazies every where.

Theory aside, NOone is ever going to accuse you of being in your right mind, Sassy.

Yep, that is true but crazy is under rated. People never invade your space.

I'm male, and strongly right handed. For most purposes, my left hand isn't much better than a flipper. I'm a ten finger touch typist, and I play guitar (stone-fingered campfire guitarist, nothing fancy), so my left hand isn't completely useless, but it has nowhere near the strength or dexterity of my right hand.

Interestingly, I have a twin sister who is equally strongly left handed for most tasks, except she also plays guitar, much better than I do, right handed. She's also pretty good on the piano, a skill I could never master.

Hmm... actually I have five siblings, two sisters and three brothers. The sisters are both left handed, the brothers are all right handed, but five of the six of us are guitarists, and we all play it right handed.

Female. Left handed.
I think we are twins Sassy. What else do we have in common?
Do you knit? Chew tobaccy?

Sorry Zoofer I can't sew, knit, cook, crafts make me gag, I can't build things either. I once put up a curtain rod and got my finger stuck in the rut so it was off to emergency to remove the curtain rod and sew up the finger. A power tool doesn't stand a chance with me. I am an experienced gardner, books are my best friends and I love Cornation Street. Nope we can't be twins.

Ew, Coronation Street? Isn't that some over-acted drama-esque British show?

As for crafts ... for some reason, every time someone uses that word, I think of a sad, lonely woman, sitting alone in a sunshine-filled yellow-painted kitchen, cutting clothing out of construction paper, placing said clothing on dolls, with a single tear rolling down her cheek amidst a sad piano solo when she comes to the realization that her paper dolls are the closest thing she has to family.

Quite the depressing bit of imagery.

Okay, I just want this to be a formal announcement:

The next person who goes to the Torture Rooms will be accompanied by Sassy. Who will have a power drill.

Think about it.

And be good.

Haggis it will be a bloody, I once tried to use a scroll saw and for the protection of the members I will not discribe what happen.

Exactly. Man, you're going to be my best torture tool yet.

I'm not a'feared of Sassy with a power drill.
Remember she does not know which end is the handle. Also it has a power cord and there are no electrical outlets down there.
When it does not not work she will break down and cry.
I will have to comfort her... then make my move!

Zoofer, you are a brave man. Especially since my secret Sassy power-drilled weapon has a supercharged nuclear mode, albeit only available at certain times.
 
zoofer
#19
I know Haggis, I know.
The gun registry will only allow that weapon's release on Fridays. That is Good Friday to be precise. Nice huh? The precise meaning of nice is precise, to be precise.
So you see for precisely 364 days of the year Sassy can torture me in the grass.
Who woulda thunk that "Splendour in the Grass" was a torture session?

Zoofer even with out power I can remove the toothy and very sharp blade of Said Scroll saw. I was trying to cut a board for the fence with the Scroll Saw and the blade kept moving I went through three blades before The Wise One told me the blade is suppose to move. Helen Keller would of made a better carpendar than moi.

Sometimes I have to stop and think which hand to hold the fork/knife with. Serious. Somewhere along the line the neurons got messed up, the glacial melt between the hemispheres increased with global warming, the electrons go zit zit zot instead of zot zit zot

Shooting (gun or rifle) right handed.
Fly casting right handed.
Spin or bait casting left or right with equal (non) dexterity.
Bat left
Throw left (used to have pretty good fastball)
Shoot (hockey)left
Fillet fish or skin (game) left
Wood carving mostly right but can use left in a pinch.
Paint brush left only
Play musical instruments (guitar etc.) right. My son says I would have been much better if I had started out playing left, but the first guitar I picked up was strung right hand............so Sometimes if "feels" as if I could play left but tried using a lefty players mandolin and..........zilch. At this point, don't care, right is good.
Dominant eye is right.
Sense of humour comes mostly from the left and enjoys skewering the extreme "right".

I have to leave now for a bit so I guess I've "left"


......................male

Holy Toledo, I go away for awhile only to return and find out that Zoofer is female?? Yikes!
 
I think not
#25
Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do

Right, of course.

I'm ALWAYS right.

Naw I was missing something when I typed that. I have since found it so can confirm it should be male.

I need to change my avatar. Since that typo I have been bombarded with offers from the guys. Having that attractive beautiful picture up there can discombobulate the average male.

Interesting survey question - I am left handed female. Sidebar: As I used to write a LOT of cheques by hand, the cheque book was made for a right handed person (always banging my hand up against the binder rings)....so I called the Bank up and asked them to send a Left Handed Business Cheque book...they couldn't comply as left handed business cheque books are not made!??

.......hmmm....wonder why?

Hello vislandgirl, and a warm welcome to the forum.

Your problem with banks could probably be summed up to the fact that banks never seem to know what their left hand is doing.

I'm right handed and left footed

Found out about the stronger leg when I wanted to skate in a line during one year of skating lessons....I was the odd girl out....

I like swimming and diving better anyway !
