I always find the looks of right-handed people funny when I write or paint......"how can u write like this? I would bend my arm if I had too".....then I say "how can You write with Your right arm?....I would bend my arm if I had too"......I understand tho that we left handers are more used to see right handers write then the other way around

Interesting results so far. According to a quick glance at wikipedia, we could expect 70% to 90% to be right-handed, around 10% to be left-handed, and even fewer ambidextrous.

Judging by the 23 votes we have so far:

Right-handed = 52%
Left-handed = 30%
Ambidextrous = 18%

We lefties are surging!

Question to Left Handed people. My Brother and a few of my other family members are left handed. When my brother was younger he would get ink or pencil lead on his hand when he wrote from his hand crossing what he was writing. Did this happen to you?

Yes!!! I always had graphite (or lead) or ink on my hand when I was in school.

Me too!!! That's why many lefties sort of right 'round the corner', so as not to get inky hands. I could never write like that so inky for me! But of course typing solves the problem!!!

Yeah, I could never hook my hand around to write, so my pinky finger was always covered with lead or ink.

When I was in early grade school, the teachers used to try to make me right handed. Like, not being very nice about it. But it never worked. I can't even write my name on a chalk board with my right hand!

Oh my, yes! All through high school and college my left pinkie finger and edge of my hand was stained blue daily from the blue ink pens my teachers required us to use. I was never able to use the newer 'erasable' ink pens as they smeared too badly...

Well you know what they. The right side of the brain controls the left side of your body, and the left side controls the right side. So that means only left handed people are in their right mind.
