So, in my course I noticed quite a few people are lefties/southpaws/whatever-you-call-it.

I was wondering, who else here is a lefty?

EDIT: It posts the thread before I even finish my poll?

EDIT2.0: Anybody wanna make this the official 'Lefty-club' thread?

Anywhere between 1/4 and 1/3 of the users will be, on average.


Ye, I think there are more lefties in the world than statistics say, although the world is still generally a right-handed place

My school refused to teach me how to hold a pencil/pen correctly (or at least didn't give me any special help with learning), so even to this day I hold it in a weird claw-like way that uses all my fingers and people still make fun of me for it

I know what you mean, I used to write some of my letters backwards.

My handwriting is still very horrible; so bad that, when I wrote down my email address for someone, they had to re-write it in their own handwriting

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

Why is it called 'southpaw' anyway?

It's not like lefties have their hands facing south all the time.

Quote by wikipedia
Southpaw is another name for a left-handed individual, particularly in sports.
In particular it refers to a left-handed baseball pitcher. This is because most baseball diamonds were oriented so the afternoon sun was at the batter's back and not directly in the eyes of most of the fielders. He faced northeast so only the right fielder had to fight the afternoon sun. Thus, his pitching hand was on the south whereas a right handed pitcher's hand was on the north.

When a left-handed pitcher in on the mound of a traditional baseball diamond, his pitching hand was on the south whereas a right-handed pitcher's would be on the north.

^ That, yeah.

Good. He didn't box.



Though originating from baseball, I find the term better suited for boxing... where you use your paw, as opposed to your hand. Southhand doesn't quite work right.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure Jackal58, a fellow UGist of sinistromanual appendages, has scars from getting "punished" for his left-handedness as a child.

I'm ambidextrous, but I prefer to use my right hand for most tasks.

You may begin your masturbation jokes.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.

I'm lefty for everything except playing guitar, and that's only because it makes buying them easier.

i write and draw w/ my left, but do pretty much everything else with my right.
I smoke like Rasta, got hair like pasta
I be sippin' on them shots then bustin' rhymes like Busta

I switch it up. I write and throw lefty but I do almost everything else right-handed. Golf, guitar, batting, etc.

Wow, I do this too, thought I was the only one.

Personally, all the lefties that I know, don't seem to be any handed. They're so so with their left and crap with their right. One dude I know can't even throw a ball, with either.

Not saying its a myth or anything, but yeah, I think its a myth, or an abomination of some sort. No offense .

Like what? Masturbation? It is best to switch hands. Maybe go reverse left handed every so often.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

I'm a lefty and I don't see why lefties think they're superior, it's nothing to be proud of, you just do shit with the other hand and foot.
and people that are claiming to be ambidextrous can kindly **** off.
