Ha ha, happy Left Handers day! My mom's left handed. When we lived in UK, there was this one shop which is dedicated to left handed people. They had all sorts of products.. left handed notebooks, mugs, craft scissors, anti-clockwise clocks etc. My mom used to buy so much of them. The anti-clockwise clock was fun.. it always confused the guests that would come to the house when they wanted to know the time πŸ˜›

One thing I wondered. Why can't scissors be used well in both hands? Why is it difficult to cut using a right handed scissor with the left hand? Anyone know the physics behind it?

I guess I'm the right ...err, left 😁 person to answer that!

Just observe the blades of scissors - when you use the scissors with the right hand, they will form a better angle (how do I explain this?) that will put appropriate pressure on the object to be cut.

But when you hold the scissor in your left hand, the blades won't be able to put the pressure in the same way. That's why we cannot use the scissor with our left hand.

Oh I see, makes sense, thanks! Maybe I do need to observe how I cut paper next time.. hmm. So is it possible to cut using the left hand if you find the proper angle?

...I can't say anything. I, myself haven't found the right angle yet πŸ˜›
