    That was a question I had in Science (don't ask) along with "What is the bird that likes to eat the strips of rubber around car iwndows and where is it found?"
    Blech. I got them both.
    I don't know what it's called, but isn't it found in New Zealand?

    It's the "Kea", and yes, it is from New Zealand.

    Im a righty, hehe. Although it would be cool if I was a lefty, they seem unique.

    Have you ever noticed that there are no sout paws(lefties) as catchers in the MLB.

    > E is the most popular vowel in the English language
    You have to be kidding me. Yeeeeah right.

    Why would you say that's most popular?
    (not on single letter E...hey!)
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    I use my right for writing and swordplay but everything else just depends on what is convenient.

    im generally a lefty. although other things require right hand, i.e. driving, guitar (actually easier to play chords if you are a lefty if playing a right handed guitar); other situations depending on convenience. i would naturally pick up a pen with my left hand, although my keys with my right hand. im actually going to teach myself to write left and right handed, just for ambidexterity.

    I ask because I am so sick of a right handed world!!
    you could always revert to the saying that "left handed people are usually smarter"

    I doubt that... which shift do you use? Which hand do you use for spaces?

    I'm right-handed but I eat meat with my left. I don't see the point in cutting meat using your hands in reverse of how you eat it. So I just eat how I cut.
