In honor of #LeftHandersDay, 1 like = 1 fact about lefthanders
1. At one point or another in our sleep, lefthanders have all spoken one of the secret names of God
2. Every lefthander is capable of one minor miracle, but most of us have wasted it without realizing. I, for instance, once knew a hamster was in a box despite the absence of all other evidence. My father used his getting a wad of paper into a wastebasket from 20 feet away.

Happy #LeftHandersDay. In fifth grade, I pitched for my Little League team and I'm pretty sure I led the league in hit batsmen and my ERA was roughly 14.41. The stories about smudging pencil lead on your hand are true. College desks were not made for us, either.
There weren't enough scissors for us in grade school and they labeled them "LEFT" to make us feel like freaks. Same goes for the gloves in gym class.
I think we also die younger than right-handers. Happy #LeftHandersDay2019

Handedness comes in two groups, "right handed" and "not right handed." Most people use their right hands for almost all precision movement, but the other group is a broad spectrum from weakly-right to strongly-left.
The way we describe and define handedness creates the effect @CStuartHardwick rightly notices. Culture defines how we talk about it - but the behavior is mostly genetic. The % of righties has remained constant across continents and milennia.
Hand dominance is a more squirrelly thing than most people realize. For example, righties are better at *some* things with their left hand... and *some* of these asymmetries flip in lefties. Take a few minutes on #LeftHandersDay to learn more!
