What I find annoying is the ALt M. An automatic spell checker might fix that.

I've gotten used to doing everything right handed...I would guess I wouldn't know what to do with a left handed BB....though maybe the trackwheel could be on the other side??? NAH....

The binder thing does get irritating Corman...I have to agree

Writing with a pen or magic marker is not that easy when you don't want ink on your hands wither

Isn't the design of a three ring binder to allow the easy removal of the pages? Why can't you write what you need to and then put the pages back in?
Maybe we can make a new language for left handed people. It could be just like english...but everything is backwards. Each letter could be reversed...evcept for letters like l,i,o,x,w etc. that look the same even when reversed, and you could write right to left instead of left to right...

Sounds like FUN

Most left handed people do not have a dominate side of their brain like right handed people do. Also left handed people on avergae have a higher IQ than that right handed people, right handed people do almost everything right handed while most left handed people use both hands.

Alot of the great minds throughout history were left handed including, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Ludwig van Beethoven, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, and Julius Caesar just to name a few.

You guessed it I am a lefty also

Most left handed people are still left brain dominant (about 70% compared to almost 100% of right handed folks being left brain dominant).
BTW, I am a neurologist.

I'm another lefty that uses the BB with the right w/ no problems...have been doing it for 5 years now.

I used to catch a baseball with my left, take the glove off, pinch it under my arm and then throw with my left.

can't argue with a neurologist now can I my statement was based on reading that I have done and i guess wrong. Some test I had years ago said the right side of my brain in the dominate side for me so I guess I am in the 30%

Is your avitar professional advice or a self portrait?

Seriously, is it true surgeons must use their less dominant hand during med school? Does that develop the other half of their brains or just improves the dexterity in their other hand?

Talking just my .02

binder issue solved: spiral notebooks with rings on the right (a Godsend in college!) or spiral top bound notebook

world being right dominant: everyone else is abnormal and lefties are the misunderstood and underappreciated geniuses!

blackberry being designed for righties: i channel the spirit of my left hand into my right and everything works out just fine. (notice the left handed thumb!)
