I'm not about to change, I'm very comfortable tying this way!

Growing up left handed in a world of right handed, sadistic nuns, when in school forced me to be that way. (i still fear rulers and women in black)
Stupid should hurt.

I was going for exactly what i am getting I just was curious who ties with what hand.

Deep in the heart of every man is a longing to live as God designed.
Nowere is the freedom to do that more possible than in the wilderness and beauty of God'screations.

Ya know, they say that left handed people are far more intelligent than right handed people
Auh, no there not not. Left handed people tend to be more creative in the arts such as music, painting etc...
Auh and Serial Killing.

Interesting to note that about 87-90 percent of the human population is right-hand dominant (based on dominant hand for writing). Not at all a trait shared among other animals, to include nonhuman primates, where handiness is more symmetrical. The influence may be both selective (genetic) as well as acquired from learning manual task from others. My Dad is left-handed and he taught me to deal cards, a task I also do left handed.
