    From scissors to knives, Left Handers, or Southpaws, are the brunt of jokes all year long for various different things. But this is the day to ignore that, and bring awareness to all the right handed folk around the globe in celebration of Left Handers Day, after all while right handed people operate in the left side of the brain, left handed people sure the right side. Therefore, only left handed people are in their right mind.

    History of Left Handers Day
    Celebrating it’s first year recognized in 1976, Lefthanders International helped raise awareness of the difficulties of being left handed. Being accused of witchcraft in the 1600s for just using one hand more than the other, was only the beginning. With only 10 percent of the population being left handed, various items are more expensive than their right handed counterparts. Objects like scissors, knives and even school desks can see a mark up of almost 75 percent more for left handed individuals, while golf clubs see as much as a 200 percent increase dependent on brand.

    Anyone witches on here?

    I do somethings left handed, play golf, cricket, surprisingly I tie knots left handed but I'm predominately right handed.
    I never had to play a backhand shot in squash if I didn't want to I just swapped to the other hand.
    This evidently means I'm only partly right in the head. :oops:
