Is there a word for someone who....
Left-handed: writes, shoots pool, masturbates, fires a rifle or shotgun, brushes teeth, use fork or spoon, cuts food with knife when knife is
Right handed: Throws football, baseball, rocks, etc, throws a punch, uses a mouse, arm wrestles, fires a pistol, holds food in place with fork while
holding knife in left hand
Both: manually pleasure my lady, use scissors, combs hair...
There's more... And some things I CAN do both handed better than most, but are at least twice as easy when using a specific hand so for those
activities I listed only under one hand. For some reason when I try to write with my right hand, I can write backwards, pretty good I bet that's
how Leonardo wrote everything backwards. I don't buy the theory that he did this to try to hide things... Are you kidding me?? You mean to tell me,
that if someone were confronted with backwards writing, that they would just be baffled? "I give up! It's indecipherable!" No... I can read
backwards almost just as good as I can forwards. I can turn a book upside down and read it almost just as fast. You don't NEED a mirror to read Da
Vincis writings... So how is writing backwards going to hide anything??
I think he just discovered one day that, when writing with his right hand, he could write backwards, and maybe his teacher thought it was cool, and
had never seen anyone who could do it so easily, so he just kept doing it. Like a trademark. You know its by Leonardo because he's the only one who
could do it so well and at length.
Another idea is that he wrote backwards but with his left hand, in order to avoid smearing the ink as his hand drags across the paper... A problem any
left hander has noticed. I remember the first time I saw the pinky side of my hand covered in pencil graphite.
Anyway, is there a special word for people like me?
Well... Let me rephrase that... Because I know there are plenty of "special words" for "people like me" XD
What I mean is, is there a word for people who are not quite ambidextrous but not left or right handed either??
