    Granted, though I wouldn't be against carrying around a loaf of King's Hawaiian and slicing off pieces of it at work... But I digress.

    Regarding official left/right handed official percentages, some countries/societies "don't have" left handed people. If this is not taken into account for the total than it'd be slightly higher than reported.

    "Don't have" being a rather vague term ranging from not bothering to census for it to it having social stigma and being trained away from it.

    Maybe it's more an issue of you just sucking with a knife then, no offense intended.

    I've sucked at everything from sports to handwriting for years, and I always blamed it on being left-handed. I later realized it was merely a result of me being uncoordinated (and half-blind with no depth perception).

    I'm ambidextrous lol. when I was in kindergarten my teacher yelled at me because I wouldn't write with the same hand all the time and she told me I had to choose a hand to write with :/

    Well uh... Rocky was a southpaw.

    I'm a righty though =)

    Initially I was ambidextrous when I was really young, but my mom forced to use my right hand so I wouldn't get singled out as a kid.

    I didn't think that it was a big deal for lefties until I realized that chainsaws are made so the blade is on the far side of it when you use it as a righty

    There's way more righties than lefties. It's just that people on the forums don't push the right one. Or mmo-champion has 30% lefties :P

    I really hate how people attach a negative stigma onto left-handedness. If I recall, being right-handed is named for being correct-handed. Left-handed people have been shunned throughout history, and being left-handed myself, naturally feel very strongly against this mentality.

    That being said, I feel too strongly about everything.

    It's nothing major, and I wouldn't choose to trade my dominant hand, given the choice.

    The left handed people are ______ compared to right handed people argument is bullshit.

    It is a well documented fact that right-handed people have a larger sperm count than left-handed people.

    If you're seriously trying to victimize yourself, just stop.

    No one cares.

    You're going to need to cite a source for that, a google search turned up nothing.

    I do agree with the latter part of your post however, if you seriously think there is a negative stigma attached to left-handedness today, count yourself lucky that you live in the century you do. Historically you could have been as much as killed under suspicious of being an occultist.

    I wish I could find it, but I read a study suggesting lefties managed to survive the ages by being better at killing...or more specifically that righties are less adept at surviving an attack from a lefty. Sinister indeed

    Oh dear, it appears your sarcasm-sensor was turned off.

    And thanks for agreeing.

    That seems likely enough, although I bet a lefty would have a similiar disadvantage against another lefty.

    You would be trained to fight against right-handed people, and a lot of what you learned wouldn't be applicable against somebody with their weapon in the opposite hand.
