Right handed here but can write quite well with my left also. I use my Left for a lot of things except can't play guitar well Left handed.

I have a friend who can play guitar both ways and he sounds as good either way. Amazing.

True.
Well,
there have been studies on this:
Lefties, because of black hands-are proven to wash their hands more often than right handed people. So while we are eating french fries with clean hands, you are eating them with your right hand after picking your nose and petting your dog and cleaning your toiled and scratching your...

BON APPETIT!

Oh,
and they made this new thing that prevents lefties hands from getting black- i dont know if i remember the correct name though,
i think it was called a



pen.


Unless its like one of those pens which are like gushing ink (the kind i love).

Kick a football
Throw a ball.

I'm a righty, but I've always wanted to use my left. I've practiced writing lefty, but have only succeeded in getting more comfortable with it, not a lot more legible!

I don't mean to be rude, but it looks really really weird when a lefty writes on paper. Just looks weird. I have no 'real problem' with lefties though...

Although I write with my left hand. I tend to do everything else with either hand. From what I am told by my parents, I used to be completely ambidextrous but my pre-k teacher didn't think that was a good thing so she made me pick one (apparently I chose left) and made me stick with that. Now, when I try something new I'm always interested to see with which hand I'll feel most comfortable doing it. So far it's quite varied:

Left: writing, eating, shooting pool, shooting a gun, skateboarding
Right: golf, football, baseball, basketball, mouse usage

just to name a few

I'm severely left-handed. I even have slightly better vision in my left eye! But I wear my watch on my left hand and use a mouse with my right hand, probably from watching right handed people and because in school the mouse could not be moved to the left side of the keyboard.

I don't remember which word it is, but there is a word meaning evil that originates from another language which literally meant left-handed.

I lived in China for 6 months where everyone was astounded my me using my left hand, because in China everyone is right-handed. Well, not really, but they're forced to be. Many Chinese people would come to be and say they are right handed, but use their left arm/foot in sports. I told them they are really left-handed like me.

My sixth grade math teacher all those years ago was talking about probability and when she said "True or false: there is a 50% chance you will be born left handed and a 50% chance you will be born right handed" most people said true.

But it's false. There's a far greater amount of people that are dominantly right-handed. (Math teacher above demonstrated this by asking right-handed people to stand up. Only she and one student didn't stand up).

I'm right handed. However I used to be left-handed. I went to a school where they told me I had to write with my right hand instead of my left hand. I am trying to re-train my left hand but it's proving difficult.
