I've come to the conclusions that most lefties are knife knuts in one way or another. Or at the very least lefties love doing things and or making things with their hands.

I'd like to make a poll of how many and who here are lefties here in this beloved forum of ours and maybe find out the ratio of lefties and righties here is just to see. =D

Thanks.

I'm not but nearly half of my coworkers are. It's the most lefties I've ever seen out of any place I have worked. One of them won't use a right handed fish spat, or buy his own, he just bends the house ones till they're unusable by anyone, right or left handed.

Don't even get me started on outey belly buttons. I used to date a girl who was a lefty with an outey belly button , crooked toes with the weird snaggle toe nail from wearing her jimmy choos heels and loved french's yellow mustard, she had to go, I got to many freaks in my life as it is.

i have a righty fish spat and it annoys the heck out of me, i wanna cut it so it works lefty. thanks for reminding me that i really have to look for a lefty friendly fish spat. rawr.

I wanna have cool stuff that's why i'm in this forum! =pppp

Leftie reporting in. Often think after browsing knife forums that there seem to be a real good amount of lefties, more than the meager offerings for us from companies would suggest.

Lefty here born and raised. We rule and split atom's like Albert Einstein!

as mentioned in other threads i'm not a born lefty. i'm more of a confused dominant hand guy. only things my right hand can't do is cut with knives, write and shoot a basketball.

am more ambidextrous than anything.

My son and wife are lefties, part of the reason why I always sharpen close to 50/50 and don't choose d shaped handles.:(

I am a lefty. Use my right hand for the odd thing, but about 90% of the time it's my left hand

I'm another sinister lefty...handedness that is. In grade school they tried to make my a righty though...didn't work out well. I use my right foot for kickball though...and fire longarms right-handed (and switch eyes too).

i heard in mainland china, the chinese consider left handedness bad luck in the family. koreans and japanese also force kids to become righties from i know. i've seen a japanese drama that had in it a cooking theme. and in that story the teacher used to cook and cut with as a lefty but was forced by his master to use his right hand, during his teaching stint, he too was tellng this lefty kid to learn to be a righty. i say that's just wrong.

just wanted to share that.

nice to see that there are more lefties here adding themselves to the poll.

Lefty here, and about 5 more at work in a kitchen of 10

Dardeau

Now that I am awake post work I also remember reading a statistic that the incidence of left handedness is the same in most prisons as it is in most kitchens, that is unusually high. I'm not speculating on what this means but with five lefties in a kitchen of eleven, I'm starting to believe.

I wouldn't try to rig up a lefty fish spat, they are pretty cheap from most restaurant suppliers. That's why the rest of the staff, including the other four lefties can't understand why this guy ruins all these spatulas. On the needing stuff front one of them also has a lefty peeler

In the middle ages, it was considered a sign of being in league with satan (or something of that flavor). In fact, the Latin root for "left-handed" and "sinister/evil" are the same. And the root for "right-handed" and "dextrous/skilled" are the same.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinistral_and_dextral

People would be harassed and discriminated against for being left-handed. Not at all surprised this is still going on in a lot of places.

thanks for the info zwiefel. being a catholic (non-practicing) in a very catholic country i actually find that a fun detail. and a complement. lol.

if i had kids i'd want at least one of them be a lefty. not by forcing them to be though. lol.

I remember an old relative of mine who fought in WW2 telling me he was born left handed but because ambidextrous because he was forced to use his right hand for everything when he was at school

interesting as to see how society forces its will on people. it's like peer pressure for society.

Another lefty here! Never learned to play to the guitar as I couldn't find someone to teach a lefty.

Son, I know someone who suspected you of being a lefty as well...

+1. All my guitars are righty.

02-17-2013, 11:56 PM
hey capid1, didn't know that you were a lefty.


+1. All my guitars are righty.

another reason why i never learned guitar since I was a lefty. not that i could ever play a tune on anything. lol. I'm musically declined. lol.

they do make pretty good bang for the buck guitars here in my country. there's a province in my country that's renowned for their handmade guitars. there's Places in Cebu and Dumaguete that makes them that's pretty known for them.

Interesting,seems alot of things took the rap in middle ages in the name of religion.Some cultures worshiped cats,other's burned them alive,of course Bloody Mary burned a few hundred protestants,before Elizabeth took the throne.

I am mostly Right handed,but I shoot a gun left,pool cue,& eat left figure that out.

When I tried your "Trompette" it felt awkward to me, so I suspected you, but you've been cleared since.

I'm a lefty, though the nuns tried their best to convert me. When repeatedly removing the pencil from my left hand and putting it in my right didn't work, they left me to figure it out on my own. To this day I still hold a pen in a "unique" fashion.

There are only two things I cannot do left handed: use scissors and shoot a pistol (though I shoot a rifle left handed - how's that for bizarre?).

all us lefties are confused with our handedness i'm afraid.
