      I guess I can celebrate for half of the day. I write and eat right-handed but play all sports left-handed. Never been able to figure out how that happened...

              It doesn't matter if you do everything or just one thing. You're still one of us.

                  Throw left? Good enough for me. HILHD!

                  I actually know someone who only putts left-handed, but plays the rest of golf, and does practically everything else, right-handed.

                    I'm capable of batting left handed, and I play hockey/broomball/etc. left handed, but that's it.

                    I'll celebrate it for about an hour and be done with it.

                      This post is only for those who have a sense of humor.

                      If you are thin-skinned and can't take a joke, stop reading now please.






                      Hmm....isn't it the case that the root of the word "sinister" is from the Latin sinistra, or "left-handed"?

                      the French word for "left-handed" is gauche, which in English is a word meaning "socially awkward", as in "did you see FF's gauche post in a thread devoted to left-handers day?"

                      According to Wikipedia, the proportion of left-handers as part of the total population is higher in primitive cultures.




                      Just messin' with ya folks. Enjoy your day.

                        I play pool left handed. Right handed at everything else I do (learned to play pool watching my dad who was a lefty).

                        Also and Im not sure what "handedness" this would mean...but when I am eating food (say a steak) I hold the fork in my right and knife in my left and never do any switching. I know that most people who are right handed cut with the right hand and then swtich the fork from left back to right, but I have never done that.

                              I know someone else who is the same way.

                              I learned to play pool right-handed, but now play ambidextrous (though predominantly left). No behind-the-back shots for me.

                              As for eating, the Americans call you right-handed, while the Europeans call you a stupid American.
