Right handed people are controlled by the left side of the brain, and
left-handed by the right. That means that only left handed people are
in their right minds.
Along the same line ... Some guy said that we use only ten percent of
our brain. The way I figure it, there's a 90% chance that he's wrong.
I know you're joking but it struck a nerve. I was born left handed and had
a grandparent that watched me frequently and beat me into being right
handed. When that grandparent died, I shed no tears.
I'm good now with both hands, but do have a problem - Like Joe C. I ordered
some custom chisels for both handed people and spent a small fortune. I'm
tired of pounding my forehead into the chisel but I don't want to just throw
I've read Bill's posting several times and am not so sure--hopefully he
As another lefthander who suffered similar treatment (in school, not at
home, thankfully), I can attest it isn't a good solution. It certainly
leads to stress at a minimum and can manifest itself in a myriad of
other problems such as stuttering, etc.
YES! Bill was joking. I am surprised and disappointed that the practice of

some you guys are old, but shees, that should have ended in the 19th
My son is left handed.
I'm glad that it's an ancient practice. It gave me lousy
handwriting and the ability to do most things with either hand.
I'm still going to blame it for my ongoing confusion though. That

what to do if you turned around. Really.

I would... from what I've read forcing people to be right handed can
cause all kinds of problems... I'm left handed.. and luckily young
enough no one tried that. My teachers did try to make me use left
handed scissors though... and for whatever reason I can't. Always use
my right hand for cutting. Drove them nuts. Why they should care is
Oh boy... what would have happened if you'd brought this map in?
Sounds like you had the same teacher as my Dad. I had a hell of a
time convincing him that a river could flow north. He KNEW that water
flows downhill and that South is down, therefore, rivers flow South.

My oldest brother is just the opposite....
My sister was about 5 when he was born, and she's a lefty... when he picked
something up with his right hand, she thought it was wrong and corrected him..
I've envied his ability for years.. writes with either hand, uses a wrench in
each hand when taking down engines, etc...
