Did you know that the USA is run by lefties?

Left handed US presidents;
James A. Garfield (1881) 20th
Herbert Hoover (1929-1933) 31st
Harry S. Truman (1945-1953) 33rd
Gerald Ford (1974-1977) 38th
Ronald Reagan (1981 -1989) 40th (actually a right-handed writer)
George H.W. Bush (1989-1993) 41st
Bill Clinton (1993-2001) 42nd

And BOTH the contenders this year are left handed. What's that about then?? That will be 5 out of the last 7 (71%) when only about 10% of the population are left-handed - Go Lefties!

lly!

Right on! I mean left on! We are everywhere, and I've also heard that there is a high percentage of astronauts that are left handed. I hold them in much higher esteem than presidents.

So... which side do I need to stand on?

If from below, the .45 is on the left... the .40 on the right.

Grade school teachers tried converting my sister and I from Left to "wrong".
She succumbed. I was stubborn and thus remain a lefty to this day.

In fact, I typed this on a left-handed keyboard.

I'm ambidextrous.

This means it is easier for me to get dates - I think.



Ummmm, never mind.

Snip >> only about 10% of the population are left-handed <<

I think that us Lefties are probably more like 25% to 33% of the population . I think that 10% number is ,... like the 8 glasses of water a day . Some guy made it up , and everybody has repeated it .

And I think that 67% of all statistics are made up on the spot!

I'm right-handed, and I don't give a rip if y'all think that you're special or not. I just know that when it comes to buying certain things (like guitars), I definitely have "the upper hand".

Joe said :: <> I just know that when it comes to buying certain things (like guitars), I definitely have "the upper hand". <<

I know that is right (;-) ... The only thing I do Right handed is , shoot long guns , & play Guitar . ... But then , I think that the way most people play Guitar is really left handed . The left hand is doing the harder parts , like making cords , the right one is just strumming along ...well maybe picking a little .... But , I think key board instruments are right handed , most of the lead stuff is with the right hand .

I think this depends on your point of view. I feel that my right hand is still the dominant hand. The left hand frets the strings, chords, what-have-you ... but it's not until the right hand strums, picks, or frets the strings that the sound is actually produced. Sure, there are techniques that put up a good argument ... but they are the exception and not the rule.

That said, I'm glad that my left hand and my right hand have learned to work in pure hamony with each other on the guitar. I wouldn't want to have one without the other.
