I am a left handed. The only thing is that I had to learn how to do things with my right hand.

My first introduction to a PC had the mouse on the right side, so it seemed natural to leave it on the right side. Plus I don't know any left handed mice.

And the thing about using a can opener........I have an electric one so I don't have to worry about that.

The thing that I hate most about being left handed is writing. When I write alot, I always have ink/pencil smears on my pinky due to the way that I write. Ink is more messy than pencil in my oppinion.

My last point about being left handed is this:
Left handed people are the only ones in their right mind

I'm a temporary lefty. I broke my right arm a few months ago and still don't have full use of it. I've become so dependent on my left hand it'll be strange going back to my right.

I was a temporary lefty. Unfortunately it was around exam time so I had to dictate my answers to a complete stranger and have them write them down word for word as I couldn't hold a pen.

I didn't break my arm again in a hurry. ;)

ahh the wonders of hopelessly redundant technology... amen...

oh speaking of leraning things righty if lefty... i learned guitar righty too... me pa and bro are both righties, so i learnted it that way too.... that, and it's much easier, as you might all know, to get right handed guitars... new or used... so it works out nicely...

[unfortunately, my right hand technique is slowing me down... probably cuz i shouldn't rest my palm on the guitar... but i'm working on that!!! :p]

oh speaking of leraning things righty if lefty... i learned guitar righty too... Well I tried to learn righthanded (cheaper/easier to find guitars).
But I had to go lefty on that. No problem though, had fun playing in a band for 2 years......

Those days are over I am sorry to say...carpel tunnel is setting in and getting hard to grasp things.

I'm a left-hander, too (someday, we the lefties will revolt against the right-handers (or wrong-handed as I prefer to call them) for all they have done to make life a little bit more difficult for us :-) ).

It's completely normal for us lefties to learn to do many things the right-handed way: For one thing, I use the mouse with my right hand. However, writing with one's left hand can be a real pain because, as others have already stated, the ink (especially the erasable ink) and even the pencil lead tend to smear the way most left-handers write (blame it on the left-to-right, top-to-bottom writing system English uses). Isn't it also too bad that most guitars are optimized for right-handers?

Cruxus is back (!)--for now.
