I am a bonafied Lefty  ;); however, I shoot, bat and play(ed) hockey right handed.  If I try to eat right handed I get messy (should have a cork on the end of my fork like in the movie "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels")  I was forced to do things right handed for several weeks after crushing my left shoulder AC joint.  It wasn't pretty!

lefty.  maybe ambidexterous.  i have equally strong backhand and forehand swings in tennis with both hands, and am equally awful at throwing things with both hands.  i dont mind writing with my right hand, but i HATE eating with my right hand.  i cant hold a knife.

I was born a lefty but my very superstitious grandma made me change to the right hand. I did go to Catholic grade school but they didn't care which hand you used plus I learned to write well before starting school.

According to the law of "Craig" left handed people are very high in intelegence and wisdom and are usually extremely good looking.  Yes you've guest it I am Craig and left handed ;D

Another lefty here. My mom made a few attempts to switch me when I was a baby, but I apparently wanted none of it. I love being different. The only thing that I hated growing up was that each teacher  had a different theory about how to teach me to write, so every year, I'd have to re-learn how to hold the pen and which way to tilt the paper. VERY annoying! I eventually learned to ignore all of them and just write the way that I was comfortable. BTW, it's not true that all lefties have messy handwriting. I don't.

I'm a righty, have always been. Though can do things with my both hands. When got carpal tunnel in my wrists, first learned to be two-handed with computer. That was the time I first learned to use mouse equally with both hands. That time my right wrist was worse, so also learned to eat well with my left hand - like when eating one-handed with spoon or fork only. Current shoulder probs have also made it handy to do things with either hand when needed. When the other one is more painful, gotta use the one left.

My parents and brother are all righties, as far as any relatives I know. Only know 2 friends that are lefties. And they both have really nice handwriting!

Very interesting topic, indeed!  ;)

Im a lefty. The weird thing is, i write with my left hand, but do everything else except eat with my right hand. So my right hand is dominant but i am a lefty. An i hold my pencil totally wrong, but people convince me i have amazing handwriting (yeah right). Hey, why do people think that being left handed is weird??

That is interesting, many people have that. Like I'm a righty, but in some things my left side is more dominant. And my friend who is a lefty, is more dominant on her right side.

Hey, why do people think that being left handed is weird??

It's not. I can't see why would anyone think of it weird. It's just which hand u happen to be writing with. Or as far as I think of it. Maybe it's because lefties are often a minority. And majority of for example different kind of equipments are designed for righties. Except of Singer sewing machines ;) This I found out some time ago. Though I have used one myself last in middle school (little patchings like socks are the only things I use the needle with). This I neva thought to notice, that most of the sewing machines are better to use when left handed! That is because the inventor of Singer sewing machines was left handed. Nitpick information, but thought it would be a fun fact here  ;D
