7. Let's sum up.
All left-handed people are evil. Al hates evil. Therefore Al hates left-handed people.

However, Blue Oyster Cult is EVIL. Al likes BOC. Al is cuaght is moral double bind. Ronnie James Dio is EVIL. Al feels ambivilent about the grody little elfin screecher, therefore maybe Al has a point.

18. Not ambivalent about the grody little elfin screecher; conflicted.
Dio with Elf, Rainbow, or Sabbath? Cool!

Dio with Dio? Sucks!

We left-handed Americans have had all we're gonna take. We demand respect (and left-handed scissors). We've had it with your backwards world, and we SHALL overcome.

Let the breeding program commence.

30. I've read where life expectancy is lower for lefties
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 12:09 PM by kskiska
My mother and sister are lefties. My mother was coerced into using her right hand in school. She could write with both. It must really screw up one's brain to have to constantly use implements designed for righties. Maybe they're more accident-prone.

Here's something on that:
"Left-handed people are almost twice as likely to suffer a serious accident as right-handers, according to a recent study. Stanley Coren, an experimental psychologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, claims that his finding helps to explain why less than 1 per cent of all 80year-olds are 'southpaws,' whereas they comprise nearly 13 per cent of all people aged 20."

31. Consider what it's like for a lefty to use a chainsaw.
They don't make left-handed chainsaws. Chainsaws are dangerous. I once sold firewood for a living. I never was able to get comfortable with a right-handed saw. Consequently, I was much more careful than I would otherwise have been.

Lefties are not more accident prone. This is actually a bit insulting. To the extent this is true at all, it is simply that we live in a right-handed world, that can be dangerous to us (consider the above chainsaw analogy).

There are advantages to this, though. It is often said that lefties are more creative - true? I don't know - but to the extent it is, it sis because of all the adaptive behaviors that we must learn. It makes us versatile and creates in us a proclivity for multiple solutions to problems.

39. One of the funniest things I ever saw in an office
was a placard that simply said "Hire the left-handed, it's fun to watch them write." It showed a hapless guy in contortions trying to put pen to paper...much like us lefties have to endure every day.

Are you seriously a fan, Whiteacre? I saw him a few years ago. I thought he had thoroughly become a joke by that point, but man he was freakin' amazing in a small club. The tiny man with the voice of a dragon.
