Default Left or right handed?

I'm a lefty. I use a pen with my left hand. Scissors in my right. Nearly everything else I'm ambidextrous. Not good at sports. I catch and throw best with my left hand. Golf? Baseball? I have no idea if I hit predominantly one way or another. I have a pretty good right left right punch

Hey Dan, I moved this thread to the General Chat.

I'm a lefty myself.

Like you I use my right hand for scissors, but that'a about it, and only because, and you left handed people know what I'm talking about, those crappy green scissors didn't cut anyways.

I love it most of the time, but then I hate it other times. I used the same baseball glove well past it's prime becuase I could never find a replacement.

I shoot, and right handed rifles burn me, so I try to shoot righty from a bench, but what's the point of that?

My son was using his left hand a lot, but he recently switched to right, so it appears I will remain the only left handed person in my family for at least one more generation.

Oh well... there's always the grand kids.

Lefty here too, so far the responses are way out of proportion, considering we only hold 10% of the population.

I do everything left-handed, except for bowling, which seems odd.

I only use zebra pens, because they don't smear. I built a lefty AR-15 because I was tired of the gas exhaust and ejected shell hitting me in the face. Next is a left-handed skill saw...also tired of sawdust in the face from right-handed saws.

Sorry, right handed, but I can only open jars and twist offs with my left. Any jar!

But only when REAL craft beer is not available, right?

Right handed for everything but shooting...I have a dominant left eye so I shoot left handed, which makes things interesting sometimes.

I'm the same way.

My biggest complaint is power tools, specifically circular saws. I hate them.

When I was in 4th grade we had to to use a fountain pen for the entire year. I'm not sure why, but it was required. It was easy to spot a lefty then. I went through the entire year with smudged papers and blue ink all over by left arm.

Left handed to the point where I never owned a mitt or played baseball or any other sport other than chess and debate team.
Do not use scissors never learned how and my SWMBO says they are dangerous to me so I never touch them. I use a knife if I can't then SWMBO cuts it for me.
I write left, I eat left and lay left and I do it left... at least SWMBO says so...
I even have the left handers how to book
at least I am in my right mind!
