The South Paw Zone (Thought this was interesting, from your left handed Realtor)

What makes ten percent of the population left handed?  Over the centuries, the left handed person has been accused of being a witch or a criminal, and has lead to children being forced to use only their right hand.  Luckly, the stigma has finally vanished, since four of our last seven presidents have been left handed-Ford, The elder Bush, Clinton, and Obama.

Genetics are, so far, the only link researchers have discovered.  Most children will begin to favor a hand for feeding themselves and simply picking something up, so left handedness happens naturally.  Research reveals that left-handedness is actually more common in the male population, that in females and that it does seem to run in families.

People with a dominant left hand have always been high achievers.  This is mainly because thier brains are structured to improve their abilities and improved language centers found in the brain.  This is why you find many artist, mathematicians and sports geniuses to be left handed.

The problem most left-handers encounter is that the world is configured for right-handed people.  There are tools for left-handed people, but most must be special ordered from retailers who specialize in them.  Being left-handed is not a curse, it is not a handicap and it is not a restrain.  Pay attention:  Your left handed friend can probably teach you something about adaptation.

FACTS:
Most left-handers draw figures facing to the right.
There is a high tendency in twins for one to be left-handed.
Left-handers adjust more readily to seeing underwater.
Left-handers excel particularly in tennis, baseball, swimming and fencing.
4 of the 5 origianl designers of the Macintosh computer were left-handed.
1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left handed.
