the reason british people drive on the left is derived from jousting. the reason americans don't is based offa rebellion against britain/anti anglicism on the part of the Irish w/out whom there wouldn't have been the secession all those centuries ago.
lefties do not have the advantage in a joust, they hafta joust switch. later on pistolas leveled the playing field when we transferred over to duels.
shout me out if any of yuz end up on jeopardy.

That's proper interesting, and proves that lefties have it worse in the UK for driving.

They (as said) have to stick their lances out of the drivers side window and joust switch. Or reverse and do it fakie (which wouldn't really work as the lance would need to go out of the passenger window - like a stalefish i guess)

I'm left handed. I skate goofy. I prefer to sleep to the left of chicks, and generally finger them with my left hand. Def some underlying science in here somewhere.


CURRENT GOALS:

- Film part set to "No Sex in the Champagne Room"
- Hump a early 2000s Tensor truck
- Get cover of Strength, famed skateboarding/youth counter culture magazine

I am also a lefty, have more tattoos on my left arm than right, also sleep on the left side of significant others, but I eat, play billiards, and darts, right handed. I also skate regular.

Is he left or right handed? Does he favor his top hands or bottom? The science behind handedness is fascinating.

I am left handed for everything besides throwing a baseball. (Which I'm not very good at, with either hand)

One thing I've observed being left handed is nobody notices fully. I've worked at the same job for 3 years, with only 7 other people. I'm not sure an exact number but I've been asked maybe 3x by each person "Wow you're lefty?! I never knew that" then I reply with "that's the 3rd time you've said that"

I even got this in school.

My mom also thought I was right handed til about 4 years ago

Because fuck you. That's why.

Do you make correct turns at red lights? Truth is leftys have an advantage over people in society, especially in sports, just not using scissors.

I know I'm feeding your desire for attention but instead of saying something mean or dismissive, I had some questions:

Do you make correct turns at red lights?

Is this a riddle? I know what you're trying to ask but red lights primarily mean stop obviously, and some places you can turn left onto a one-way from a red light. BUT, you claim to be from Quebec, where I believe it's against the rules to turn right on red. So what gives?

Truth is leftys have an advantage over people in society, especially in sports, just not using scissors.

I'm pretty sure you're straight trolling with this one but I wanted to know how leftys had an advantage using scissors, or what an advantage using scissors actually is.

I think you misread it dude, He's saying leftys cant use scissors. Which is true, for me at least. Scissors suck. Unless they're special.

because tracer, in ancient times, before guns people fought with swords.  the righties usually killed their leftie opponents because of trigonometrics.  it was a blood bath. the results are still scene today. the end.

While there might be some truth to this, lefties would have the advantage if your opponent assumes you're a righty. Some say that lefties have more heart, because their good hand is heart first.

Most skaters skate regular, with their bad hand first, is there a correlation probbaly not
