Anyone here a lefty besides me?? COME ON WE ROCK!!!!March 28, 2011 2:25 am at 2:25 am #1028398
physically or politically? If you mean physically, then me too 🙂March 28, 2011 2:28 am at 2:28 am #1028399
physically……March 28, 2011 2:38 am at 2:38 am #1028400
I’m a lefty. Lefties use the right side of their brain which means they are in their right mind.March 28, 2011 2:42 am at 2:42 am #1028401
Yeah, I’m a lefty. Doesn’t bother me in the least bit.March 28, 2011 2:57 am at 2:57 am #1028402
I’m a lefty (physically), although I do a lot of things with my right hand.
I don’t understand what the big deal is about being a lefty. Some people say lefties are smart and creative. It has something to do with brain dominance.March 28, 2011 3:01 am at 3:01 am #1028403
dvorak-good one! I am also a lefty (physically!)March 28, 2011 4:14 am at 4:14 am #1028404

You know that left handed in Latin is sinister.March 28, 2011 12:29 pm at 12:29 pm #1028405
Hudi- it makes a difference when we do Mitzvohs.
Whatever should be done with the right hand, we must do with the left.
For men, a big part of it is Tefillin.March 28, 2011 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1028406
Me too (raising my left hand).
That’s 7 lefties in the CR so far. In the general population, 1 in 7 people is a lefty. I wonder if we CRers have a higher rate. That should say something.
“You know that left handed in Latin is sinister.”
And in English it means some pretty nasty things too: liberal, socialist, communist, religiously modern…March 28, 2011 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #1028407
I’m Left-handed for writing and for holding a fork,
but righty for everything else.
I guess my brain can’t make up it’s mind what’s what!March 28, 2011 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #1028408
The last time this came up, I posted several health risks lefties are prone to. It was moderated away, so I feel so much more secure now.March 28, 2011 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #1028409
smartcookie – I guess for men it makes a bigger difference.
twisted – what health risks? why were they “moderated away”?March 28, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1028410
i too am a proud leftyMarch 28, 2011 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1028411
I think lots of Jews are lefties. I’m going back to my HS class…March 28, 2011 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #1028412
Well as a lefty I can say this
Apparently statistics show Lefties have shorter lives on average
(But you can ignore my sanguine predictions)March 28, 2011 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #1028413
Hudi: I don’t remember, but it was accident prone ( like me) and that blue eyed+left is at elevated risk for stroke lo alenu. Could be that the creativity that we are famous for leads to experimentation or disregard for rules that can lead to some oops moments.March 28, 2011 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm #1028414
I wish I was a leftyMarch 28, 2011 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #1028415
I hate statistics. I don’t believe any of it.March 28, 2011 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #1028416
hi everyone!! this is my first time posting!!
i just hadta let u guys know that im the proudest lefty around!!March 28, 2011 8:51 pm at 8:51 pm #1028417
I write with my left hand. Does that count?March 28, 2011 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1028418
i am a lefty 🙂
lefty does mean a lot of nasty things, hence the reason why lefties were believed to be witches and were persecuted. in many countried children who showed elfty tendancies were trained to be righties. there are halachos where handedness makes a difference, but i think the only time it is really a problem is by a kohen/levi because its considered a mum and then the left-handed kohen/levi cant serve in the bhm”k.March 28, 2011 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #1028419
you can count me in! yay, lefties 🙂March 28, 2011 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #1028420
welcome aboard HAKOLMarch 28, 2011 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #1028421
GO LEFTIES!!!!!! – lefties r the only ppl in their right minds!!! we r awesome!March 28, 2011 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #1028422
Twisted – I’m also accident prone 🙁
Maybe this has something to do with supposed “shorter lifespans”
My family has major arichas yamim on it’s side, so I’m not worried.March 28, 2011 10:48 pm at 10:48 pm #1028423
Im SO proud to be a lefty its not normal!! i once did a report on how i love being a lefty and so when i was researching i found out that there were a ton of really smart famous people who were leftys!! were supposed to be creative and disorganized and right minded!!! and btw august 13th is international left handers day!!March 28, 2011 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1028424
woohoo! go lefties!!!! we have so many advantages! if only those righties knew what they were missing out on!!!!

Part of the club. I couldn’t serve in the Beis HaMikdash anyways because I’m not a Cohen but I am looking forward to watching them do their service someday. And in terms of lifespan I guess we complete our life’s mission more efficiently…
So There.March 29, 2011 2:00 am at 2:00 am #1028432

Lefties ROCK! we r supposedly smarter and cooler!March 29, 2011 3:58 am at 3:58 am #1028439
“observanteen-ALOT! its the whole experience of being a lefty…not something that can be explained to a righty lol….sorry….”
StuffedCabbage: Can I help you out with that? You get up in the morning, and JUMP outta bed screeching, “HEY EVERYBODY!! I’M A LEFTY!!!!!” You go to school, put up a sign on your chair, “I’m a LEFTY!!” As soon as anybody caughts sight of that, they befriend you. On your test paper, you write, “note: I’m a LEFTY.” And the result? Flat 100%!!!
Okay, okay… I guess I won’t burst your bubble just now;)March 29, 2011 4:01 am at 4:01 am #1028440
dancinggirl-SUPPOSEDLY??? we ARE smarter and cooler!!! this is fact!!March 29, 2011 4:09 am at 4:09 am #1028441
ambidextrous. write with both hands, draw with both, take turns driving with both feet.. i use the mouse in the left hand.
kinda strange, i was right handed till late in the teens then all the sudden, now im more left handedMarch 29, 2011 5:02 am at 5:02 am #1028442
enahak What happened to all that nonsense about semitic genocide in Europe? You’re finally making sense. Did you stop taking the good stuff?March 29, 2011 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #1028443
bsd, what are you talking about? you simply have zero knowledge about history and genetics… how then to comment about it?March 29, 2011 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #1028444
enahak-Ok explain it in one SHORT paragraph or less. What is it, how does it pertain to me, and why are you the only person on mother earth that knows about this.March 29, 2011 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1028445
“well when you write hebrew the pen doesn’t smudge on your hand”
…And when the rest of us write English the pen doesnt smudge on our handsMarch 29, 2011 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #1028446
when you realize the exact primary chromosome categories of the matriarch and patriarch and you look at where they are today and what is happening you will have no more questions. we’re under a very heavy blanket of western media. take a look at all primary chromosome categories in relation to geopolitical history. thats all you have to do. im pretty sure the forefathers wouldn’t want their exact primary chromosomes erased by westerners as fast as possible. thats all i was saying.
