    @engleman10513:  I’m right handed, but my man is left handed. How is that determined anyway? I always wondered that. Just fluke?

    I can write with both.   I’m left handed originally, but in public school it was considered a no no so all my teachers forced me to write with my right hand.

    I’m a righty, but I always thought it would be cool to be lefthanded. My favorite aunt is a lefty, so that’s proably why lol.

    I’m a righty, though I do do some things with my left hand. My mom is a lefty, and my dad was naturally a lefty, but was forced to be a righty by the nuns at his school (he has terrrrible handwriting now). 

    @engleman10513:A southpaw is a a term for a left-handed boxer I believe.

    Well I do write with my right hand, but I am pretty ambidextrous. My writing really isn’t all that terrible with my left! More than likely, since I was taught by right handed people and since I am ambidextrous, I learned it that way. I wonder if I had been taught by my grandpa (lefty) if I would write left handed!

    There are some things I do with both hands equally well, there are some things I do mainly right, (write, brush my teeth) and there are some things I do mainly left (like shoot pool, shoot a gun, if I played guitar I would be a lefty….)

    CURSE YOU EVIL LEFTIES!!!! Never trust a southpaw! My sister is a lefty and I never let her get behind me where I can’t see her.

     

    My personal favorite theory on where lefties came from is the Vanishing Twin Syndrome theory. Many identical twins have one left-handed person and one right-handed person. It is also VERY common for pregnancies to start out as identical twins (the egg splits to double its chances of survival — and apparently 8% OR MORE of pregnancies start this way) and then one twin MURDERS AND DEVOURS the other. So left-handed people are just the survivors of an intrauterine fight to the death. Of course, any right-handed person could also be the winner of such an epic battle, so there’s no way to know about righties. But lefties have all killed before. Here is a graphic I drew for my blog depicting how this probably went down:

    Y’all bunch of straight-up murderers.

    @iarebridezilla:  You know, my little brother is a lefty, and now that he’s 16, I am definitely sensing some evil lol…

    But wait! What about ambidextrous people then? Instead of one cell devouring the other, did I morph back into one? And I am lucky that I didn’t come out with two heads, extra fingers and toes, and split personality disorder?

    If I am lucky I may have to play the lottery more….

    I would be interested in your scientific theory on this one. I love the anatomical graphic you provided 😛

    @Sunnyday278:  Yes, based on my scientific calculations, it would appear that your ambidextrousness means you and your twin somehow merged back together into one without either one of you eating the other’s heart to absorb their courage. I would say you’re a chimera, which means you can totally commit crimes and leave lots of DNA evidence because your own DNA won’t match your own other DNA, but then I remembered that identical twins have the same DNA so I just don’t know where to go from here. Probably you are just some kind of monster though. 😀
