We have reached 200 posts! Wow! I never knew I could write so much! And on top of all the freelance writing too.
I am a left-handed person. I know it is no biggie to a lot of you but being a left-handed puts me at a disadvantage. For example, camera shutter buttons are located on the right instead of left. What about we tend to smudge our words as we write from left to right? Not to mention the ink left on the underside of our wrist.
Here are some random facts of being a left hander. Enjoy!
- Left-handedness runs in families. Lefties in the British royal family include the Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Prince William.
The Boston Strangler, Jack the Ripper, and Osama Bin Laden were lefties.
Lefties are better able to multitask.
Many sources claim that left-handers may die as many as nine years earlier than right-handers.
August 13th is Left-Handers Day
In many Islamic countries, people are forbidden to eat with their left hand, which is considered “unclean” because it is used for cleaning the body after defecation. Additionally, “public display” or use of the left hand is against the law in some Islamic countries, including Saudi Arabia.
About 50% of rats, cats, and mice are left pawed.
Juniata College in Huntington, Pennsylvania awards up to $1,500 in academic scholarships to students who have top academic records and who are left-handed.
About 30 million people in the United States are left-handed.
In a recent experiment, left-handers who watched an eight-minute clip from the film Silence of the Lambs showed more fear than right-handers. Scientists believe that this may be because the right side of the brain is dominant in lefties and is more involved in fear responses.
