I am left-handed.
Love this - only thing is I am ambidextrous (write with my right and do everything else with my left). I guess that explains why I get so confused....my two sides of the brain are fighting for power!

I'm right-handed except for sports. I throw lefty, bat lefty and shoot hoops lefty.

Not personally, no.

Similarly...if you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 2020 ft. room.

Here's a few to entertain everyone:

One in three dog owners say they have talked to their pets on the phone.

Condoms were originally made of animal intestines.

Worms reportedly taste like bacon.

There are no clocks in Las Vegas gambling casinos.

The inventor of Vaseline ate a spoonful of the stuff every morning!

The G in 'g-string' stand for groin.

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.

One punishment for an adulterous wife in medieval France was to make her chase a chicken through town naked.

Of the six men who made up the Three Stooges, three of them were real brothers (Moe, Curly, and Shemp).

Months that begin on a Sunday will always have a 'Friday the 13th'.

In Albania, nodding your head means 'no' and shaking your head means 'yes'.

According to U.S. FDA standards, 1 cup of orange juice is allowed to contain 10 fruit fly eggs, but only 2 maggots.

I knew about the clocks in Las Vegas and the head nodding in Albania. My daughter-in-law is from there.
