Ok, so maybe I'm in a polling mood today. I being a left-handed person, I'd like to know how many of our BGG'ers are also Lefties?

Someone needs to make a micro-badge for it...

Factoid: Did you know that Presidents Ford, Reagan, Bush Senior and Clinton were all Lefties?

Thanks, I was starting to think maybe we didn't have many lefties on here.

I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

Not left-handed but I use a knife and fork "backwards" because my older sister thought it would be funny to teach me to eat that way when I was younger.

I am an unapologetic, openly inveterate lefty. There. I said it. And I'd say it again. But I box right handed, and kick right footed. Everything else, (and I mean everything), is lefty. One of the reasons I joined the Navy, (back in the day), was because I wouldn't have to worry about the fact that I shoot left-handed... well, that, and the fact that I was one of about ten people in the whole US Navy who could swim. THAT'S a funny story for another day. I'm so lefty that even my political bent is such. I guess there's nothing LEFT for me to say...

Solidly left handed in all ways but one. Oddly enough, when I communicate with sign language I'm right hand dominant. Weird.

I'm also a lefty.

Factoid: both my brother and sister, and HER kid are all lefties. My brother's kid is too young to tell yet.

I should have been left handed. In the late 60s early 70s many of us were forced to be right handed in school. I write with my right, but do many other things left handed. This forced rightism has made my use of some tools and utensils kind of odd, especially my use of a scissors.

I have found myself that the percentage of gamers that are left handed (or should have been) is much larger than the general public. one of my gaming groups has it at 50%.

I am left handed. No-one else in my entire family, going back about 3 generations has ever been left handed. Everyone was a bit suprised that I came out that way.

When my hubby and I play tennis and squash, rather than hit backhand, I quickly swap the racquet over to my right hand and smash the ball back. It annoys the poop out of him, cause I can get all of his tricky shots. I can golf with both hands, also cricket. I think I kick with the left though...

I can mirror write. But I don't do that weird thing with my pen like some other lefties, where they kind of grapple with the pen and hunch their wrist over.

Me too. It's weird, I wonder if right-handed people are as right-dominant as I am left. It goes far enough that I NEED to use the phone on my left ear, or else it's extremely difficult to make sense of the sounds I'm hearing.
