Any other left-handers here?

I didn't know where else to put this thread. The "Current Events" forum is mainly for news and politics. But the mods will move it if they see fit.

Who else here is left handed? I happen to have a twin brother, but unlike me, he is right handed. Maybe being a twin and being left handed makes me double-wierd, eh? My wife is left handed too. They say that a big majority of left handed people are men. IDK if that's a fact, but it has been rare for me to meet left handed women,(not that I know of anyway. It isn't like i was looking for a left hander female). Do you other left handers here believe that right handed people view you as an alien from outter space?

"South-paws do everything backwards! They even think backwards!"

You guys (and gals) remember those worthless green rubber handled left handed scissors they gave us to use in school? I couldn't use those to save my life. They plain sucked. I would always end up ripping the paper. LOL.....To this day I use scissors with my right hand only.

Re: Any other left-handers here?

Everybody is born right handed but some of us overcome that handicap. My wife and I are both left handed. Good thing she's not also a redhead.

Both kids are right handed. Go figure.

Re: Any other left-handers here?

I have identical twin daughters and one is right handed and the other left handed. When they got glasses we found out their eyes were the same just on the opposite side. They can wear each others glasses if they are upside down or contacts if they switch right for left. It's called mirror image twins. When I had trouble telling them apart I would throw something to them to see which hand they caught with until they figured out what I was doing.

Yep, I hear of "mirror" twins. That's pretty funny about the ball throwing trick to reveal identity.

"Your left hand is the devil" whacko grandmother of mine. She hated kids. It's amazing she didn't just amputate her left hand while she was at it. Crazy witch.

Catholic school nuns tried the same stuff with my Mom.

Re: Any other left-handers here?

We left our daughter alone and didn't push her to be right handed. Nobody in either of our families is left handed.
..and my daughter is an outstanding artist.

Yeah my wife, (also a south paw) is a very good artist too. That trait sure passed me by. I have a tough time drawing stick figures.

Re: Any other left-handers here?

Lefty here also, as was my father, and grandfather. My FIL was also a southpaw. They tried to change me to righty in schools early years but when it got to the point that I couldn't read my own writing taking school notes I switched myself back. I sure didn't like getting my knuckles whacked with a ruler from my grade 1 teacher everytime she saw me with a pencil in my left hand.

How about using scissors? You must use your right hand for that, no? I don't think that ordinary scissors will work using them left handed, correct?

Re: Any other left-handers here?

my grandfather was a lefty, I am a lefty, one of my kids is a lefty and my niece is a lefty, though she tends to do some things strictly right-handed.

Re: Any other left-handers here?

I'm left handed, the oldest of 12 kids, and the only lefty.

I agree, God made everyone right handed, the smart ones switched.

I can't use left handed scissors, but use right handed scissors with my left hand.

My Dad told me that when I started school, they pinned a note to my shirt stating I was left handed and with his ok, they'd switch me. He wrote back he was happy I could use my hands and to leave me alone. The other kids who were left handed got the ruler. Those nuns were nasty, hid the ruler under their cape.
