Happy Left Handers Day! - August 13 [International Celebrations]

Without doubt, the Left-Handers are the awesomest people on the Earth. I stumbled upon an interesting 'finding' on the Internet about the handedness of American Presidents. Check -

Herbert Hoover 1929–1933 Left-handed
Franklin D. Roosevelt 1933–1945 Right-handed
Harry S. Truman 1945–1953 Left-handed[4]
Dwight D. Eisenhower 1953–1961 Right-handed
John F. Kennedy 1961–1963 Right-handed
Lyndon B. Johnson 1963–1969 Right-handed
Richard Nixon 1969–1974 Right-handed
Gerald Ford 1974–1977 Left-handed
Jimmy Carter 1977–1981 Right-handed
Ronald Reagan 1981–1989 Ambidextrous
George H. W. Bush 1989–1993 Left-handed
Bill Clinton 1993–2001 Left-handed
George W. Bush 2001–2009 Right-handed
Barack Obama 2009–present Left-handed


August 13 is celebrated as the International Left Handers day all over the world. I'm quite sure we've a number of people on CE who are left handed. It's your day, folks! Rock On!

Make your presence felt in this thread. 👍 <- 😁

We need a right-handers' thumbs up smiley too! 😭 .. 😁

All the Left Handers I know are undoubtedly cool. (Biggie being one of them. 😉 )
It could be the effect of the 'Left-Hander-Right-Brain' theory, of course.

If you are one, go seize the day! 😁 Happy Left Handers' Day!

😀 Happy left-handers day 😀

By the way, Wikipedia says that left-handers face considerable trouble using right handed tools and driving in the right side of the road.. Is there still such discrimination? I thought left-handed versions are available for most tools and devices.. And I really don't know if driving in the right-hand side is a problem.. In India, people drive in the left-hand side, and so, by the above logic, all right-handed people should complain.

@ all the left handers - Do you think your right brain being more active than the left one makes a difference? 😲
@all the left handers - I just want to know are you all happy being left handers?
