In autism left handed is majority. Left handed is not necessary cause of genes instead trauma in gestation or during the birth. Many left handed are likely to be dyslexic and to stutter. Also premature babies are more likely left handed. Left handed also suffer more with asthma and allergies than right handed. Left handed die 9 years earlier than right handed.
In Medieval era left handed were believed to be devil´s advocates and witches.. Eskimo´s believed left handed to be sorcerers.

The safety on my 32 Winchester and Glock is for right handers.
I would be willing to bet that at least 20% of atsers are left handed. Maybe even 25-30%.
I'm glad I'm left handed It gives me my weird sense of humor that keeps me entertained at all times.

If 20% of lefties are MENSA members, that means that lefties aren't geniuses. There is something wrong with that.
Side note: I am a lefty.
There is no evidence for any of this nonsense. I was born neither left handed or right handed. When my Ma asked me which hand I wanted to use to learn writing, I chose my left hand. I cannot write with my right hand to this day although I assume that if I practice it will become just as my left.
I kick (martial art wise) with my left leg but if I play soccer I kick with my right leg.
I throw a baseball with my right.
I bat righty (baseball as well).
I shoot a basketball righty.
I play guitar lefty.
I shoot a gun lefty.
What handed am I?
Is it really decided by what hand I WRITE with?
I box lefty because I am quicker with my left arm and more accurate, but my right arm is WAY more powerful, uppercuts and sideswings I use my right, regular punches... you guessed it... left. That is tactical in nature. I always switch it up to be unpredictable though.
I am obviously not left handed or right handed, neither am I ambridexious. I am freaking crooked.edit on 24-11-2013 by Gyo01 because: error
So you are generally richer and smarter but don't usually live as long and are more apt to become an alcoholic?
Well played Mother Nature.... Well Played.

I would guess that choosing to play guitar lefty is a bummer -- you can rarely pick up a guitar anywhere and play it. I wanted to play guitar lefty, but chose to learn righty so I could play wherever I went.
One of the few sound decisions in my life.
