    Stalin - not the best advertisement for lefties I feel.

    Hendrix the greatest? Worth a good 3 or 4 hour argument over several bottles of wine - but not for me. Top 3 but not The Man.
    Don't you know this deuce is still wild.

    I'm lefthanded, I remember the teachers in Scotland trying to change my hand, but even then as a young child I knew it was natural.

    I went into boxing , yet I wasn't a southpaw. I naturally went for a straight right, which was my strongest and fastest punch, with my right foot forward. Left hand was my defensive with a good hook, but not my main punch. It worked. Yes I am left handed, but I didn't become a southpaw, is that strange?

    In football? Yes I am left footed. I had hoped one of my three sons would be left handed or left footed, but none of them are. So it's just me, and it's obvious to me that it's not a hereditory issue, as no members of my family a re left handed except me, and I'm extremely disappointed about that.

    If I'm thinking about me, I would say that left handed people are extremely creative, but not methodical. We do do do have a three dimensional view, and great creativity and vision. But can we be orderly and methodical? NO!!

    Gypsy,
    1. I am not a fan of Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili (real name) you know as Stalin;
    2. I prefer Scorpions .

    Hi, Nat)))

    Wow - I didn't know that we have Lefthanders day in world)))

    In fact - Bels is right - they are very creative personalities....and I think - he is the best example

    Though, in ancient times people were scared of left-handers...maybe because, people are usually scared of something/someone extraordinary??

    Why? Did you notice that?
