Today is Left-Hander's Day.
In honor of this, here is some Left-Handed Trivia:
- Sinistrophobia is the fear of left-handedness.
- While many people are left handed, very few are 100% left handed. For example, many left handers golf and bat right handed. On the other hand, there is a high percentage of righties who are 100% right-handed.
- Tuesdays are Lefties luck day.
- Only about 10% of the population is left handed.
- During the 1600's people thought left handers were witches or warlocks (they're not??)
- International Left Hander's Day was first celebrated on August 13, 1976. It was started by Lefthander's International.
- They say everyone was born right handed, and only the greatest overcome it. (he,he,he)
- It is believed that all polar bears are left handed. How anyone figured that out is beyond me.
- There is a rumor that octopuses (octopi?) have but one right hand. Scientists are diligently studying this issue. Or not.
