Happy Left Hander’s Day!
A bit from mental floss
Highlighting cool facts:
4 of the 5 original designers of the Macintosh computer were left-handed
1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left-handed – 250% more than the normal level.
Most left-handers draw figures facing to the right.
There is a high tendency in twins for one to be left-handed
Stuttering and dyslexia occur more often in left-handers (particularly if they are forced to change their writing hand as a child, like King of England George VI).
Left-handers adjust more readily to seeing underwater.
Left-handers excel particularly in tennis, baseball, swimming and fencing
Left-handers usually reach puberty 4 to 5 months after right-handers
My dad’s a lefty, I’m a lefty and luckily I’ve adapted to living in a right-handed world. I like being left-handed. It’s one of those “good” different things.
I’m hooked into the LimeNViolet KnitWars – last night I went to see Shakespeare on the town Green – I brought my knitting and on my way back home all I could think of was “I can get points for knitting in public and knitting for an hour!! Excellent!”
