    Lefties

    Left-handed people are statistically more likely to be geniuses, and to be insane. Left-handedness is more common among writers and some kinds of artists. But lefties tend to be more accident prone and on average don't live as long.

    Mind that bus.
    What bus?
    Splat!
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    It really is true! Just today I was walking to my locker and started thinking about programming, and then realized I had started walking the wrong way...I was like "whoa! where am I going?...oh yeah...now what was I thinking about..." Never did reach my locker...

    Theory is more important than application, yes?

    IE, it is thinking about walking and planning where to go, then... you walk into walls and so forth... but it's not about the wall, or that you walked into it, but that you walked...

    er... something to that effect... =)

    I'd give my right arm to be ambidexterous.

    Really now? It comes in handy when my lit teacher makes us write a 4 page essay in class. When one hand goes out I just switch hands

    It's just easy for us. I think it has to do with dominance in the brain.
