Happy Lefty Day!

Happy International LeftHanders Day! Or as I like to call it, Happy Most Awesome People in the World Day!

Last year I had a little rant about things that aren't lefty-friendly.. This year, I'm going to share cool left-hander facts with you.

These come from (a left-hander guitar player website) because I'm no plagiarist. LeftyFretz says that lefties:

  • Make especially good baseball players, tennis players, swimmers, boxers and fencers (almost 40% of the top tennis players are lefties)
  • Recover from strokes faster
  • Of the seven most recent U.S Presidents, 4 have been left handed
  • Left handed college graduates go on to become 26% richer than right handed graduates

And these come factoids come from from

  • 4 of the 5 original designers of the Macintosh computer were left-handed
  • 1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left-handed – 250% more than the normal level.

So today, fellow lefties, go out and celebrate your lefty awesomeness. A great way to celebrate would be to watch an episode of The Simpsons, in which left-handed Bart Simpson always starts the show writing lines on a chalkboard with his left hand.
