Mysha BS: Who knew? International Left Handers Day (38) RE: BS: Who knew? International Left Handers Day 14 Aug 14


True left-handers rare? If you go to a smithing class, you wouldn't say so. Smiths tend to be left-handed. Smithing classes is where the occasional right-hander finds out what it's like to have to do everything the other way around from how it's explained.
That's also a theory why lefties tend to be less provicient at some stuff, regardless of doing them left or right, but excellent at other things: The division of brain-functions is mostly the same for lefties and righties, giving lefties less often occurring combinations of functions with hands to perform them with. A smith, left-handed, controlling his hammering hand with the side of the brain that also does the creativity stuff, can shape metal almost intuitively, in a way the right-handed minority finds difficult to master.
(My maternal grand-father was a smith, and a left-hander; his son, my uncle, is a left-hander; I'm more of the ambisinistrous type.)

I'm not so sure ice cream on a grill would work so well, but they say you should try everything once. I'm game if you are.
