how many of you are left handed?
i'll start with myself, except my eating hand (being an asian) and my toothbrushing hand (the maid who taught me used her right hand) i'm predominantly left handed, writing, tennis, mouse- you name it.
the discussion is, only 10% of the entire population is left-handed, and i do find myself in sometimes inconvenient situations being a leftie. albeit trivial and menial issues, you wouldn't encounter them if you were a rightie.
take high school chairs with those folding tables for instance, i find myself really agitated coz i can't put my left elbow on something while writing.
then there's those books with the rings bindings, i have a bad handwriting, those things get in the way, its not getting any better :heh:
of course, there's also the mac keyboard, the ctrl, alt and cmd keys are located on the left side. i use the trackpad with my ibook, and i find myself struggling sometimes in photoshop shuffling my hands.
once again, maybe some of the little stuff..but its really inconvenient
