So what should this society discuss?

Should we have a rant on how everything is biased towards righties - even the language we use?

I can only presume the reference is to the term "right" meaning "correct" as well as to refer to handedness. As in, righthandedness is the right handedness!

I can write using my left hand! How about that for super powers! :P:

Incidentally...how much do you guys use your left hand? I only write with it, and do nearly EVERYTHING else right handed. Although I CAN eat left handed....

I'm left handed and people always comment on the way I hold my pen. I think it's unique. I'll join.

Found this while surfing the net and thought it might be of interest:

"A really interesting question is whether there is any connection between left handed people and creative genius. Some of history's most creative minds have been left-handed.

In the category of art, both Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were left handed. In the category of music, Ludwig van Beethoven was left handed. In the field of science and invention, you find Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein. In the field of motion pictures, Charlie Chaplin.

Bobby Fisher, the modern chess genius, is left handed. So too musical geniuses Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, and Wynton Marsalis.

Each of the these persons had a mind so exceptional as to be head and shoulders above anyone else in their field. So even though it may be more difficult for a left handed person to live in a right handed world, lefties can know that they are in good company. Beethoven and Einstein had it tough, too. "

I eat right handed, becasue thats how i was taught, but if its only one piece of cutlery, eg soup i use my left hand. I also cut with my right hand though i can use both, purely because in primary school there was only 1 pair of left handed scissors in my class and i could never be bothered to wait!
Everything else is left handed
