Is our Governor lefthanded, is our president left handed?,

Everyone is unique, whether middle handed, left handed, or right handed, All the examples of those you have given are those that "know" book. Who cares?, Today's world belongs to the drop outs, do you know any successful left handed drop out, then that might interest me.

according to science, left handed ppl use the right part of their brain,
the right part of the rain controls the left part of the body while the left part of the brain controls the right part of the body. and its also believed that the right part develops better than the left part so i guess thats where the notion comes from, bt to be frank, its those that have the use of both hands that are truly unique cos they've got both parts of the brain developed.
[i]*off point*[/i]as a very small kid, just learning to read and write, i was using my left hand then my pops freaked out, i was influenced to using my right and i still am.

i made 2 of my late aunt's daughters become lefties as toddlers and i am right-handed. they do very well in school, no doubt. but personally, i love lefties. i've always had the feeling since i was a kid that there's something unique and quite extra-beautiful about them, especially the ladies. anyway, my grand

@Gamine
we all know you are right-handed and always came 1st in primary school. just save us the mockery of these lefties.
Re: Why Are Left-handed People Few And So Unique? by iukpe: 10:16am On Oct 20, 2008

Who cares if you are a southpaw or ambidextrous , I don't think it's got anything to do with your I.Q.

My best friend , who by the way is fully right handed , is about the most brillant guy I have seen

I also do have lots of southpaws as friends but don't even know a quarter of what I know

Overall , brillance and intelligence doesn't mean you'll be successful at any endeavour than drop out who got the lowest scores at school.
Re: Why Are Left-handed People Few And So Unique? by carmelily: 2:01pm On Oct 20, 2008
A high percentage of serial murderers were found to be left-handed. Fact.

Also,

Department of Sociology, Minot State University, ND 58701.

One hundred and thirty male and 213 female college students responded to a self-report delinquency and crime measure and to a scale of sidedness preferences. Consistent with most of the literature on official delinquency and crime, left handedness was positively associated with involvement in several forms of delinquency (including some degree of criminality) among males. Other measures of sidedness among males largely failed to correlate with delinquency, however. Among females, sidedness was much less systematically related to delinquency than among males.

    grin  Another side of the coin.

I don't think it matters really. It's just that more attention is paid to stuff like that because of the proportion of right-handed to left-handed people in my opinion. By the way, Obama is left-handed or at least signs with his left hand.
Re: Why Are Left-handed People Few And So Unique? by chunke(f): 2:57pm On Oct 20, 2008
May i ask wat makes dem UNIQUE in anyway
Am sorry if am dis blunt, but everyone is unique and wonderfully made in his/her own capacity. so don't use dat and cajole us. Am very familiar wth a lot of dem and all i know about dem is dat dey ave d best type of slaps and behave in very funny ways. Mind u my sis is left-handed and u need c her eat wth her right hand, u definitely wld throw up.So wats UNIQUE about dem
