      They do have left-handed scissors, which is good. I've tried to use right-handed scissors with my left hand (can't remember why) and it was difficult.

      Binders and notebooks. Never thought about them being a problem.

      Step-father was a bowler, almost went pro. He had 2-3 300 games in sanctioned leagues. I guess being left-handed didn't hurt him.





      JWinn, the smiley works. I think you put a space in between the words. Habit to hit the space bar.

        Umm.. I just click the images in the extra window. I don't type them out. I click the little orange "more", and open the page of emoticons, and scroll down to it, and click that.



        Must be my spell checker doing something to it.

        sorry

          I tried lefty scissors once, but do better with regular ones in my right hand. Like NORMAL people, lol.

          Take a spiral binder. Even a small one with a small wire in the middle, like a date book, and flip it over. Now try writing on it like you would as usual. Write out several sentences, just like you would on the other side.

          Some people hold their hand up in the air when they write normally. Like a school teacher who writes on a blackboard. The hand is floating free essentially. But most of us lay the hand down, and the palm touches the paper while we write.

          Do it with a pencil!

          As a lefty, especially using pencils, I always smeared my work, as my palm would always follow the words, unlike for righties, where the words flow away from the hand as you write.

          Pencil probably won't make a difference to righties though, unless they start writing Hebrew.

            Whoa! Scissors??! Now you're just joshing with me. Ever try running with the wrong pair of scissors in the wrong hand?? DO. NOT. DO. IT!!!!! Scary things happen.

                Be careful though, if one flipper is stronger then the other you could be swimming in circles.

                    Oh my gosh! Its so true about pencil smearing. When I was in school, i would come home with the whole side of my hand with pencil smear! I guess now i rarely use a pencil.

                        Few people are born perfect, the rest are right handed.

                          Pens are the same. That's why I go get the Pilot G-2 with the .05 tip. Not as much ink comes out as the .07 and they don't turn my knuckles black. Lots of customers comment on how nice they are and look at me baffled when I explain why I use those pens specifically. Yeah... maybe it's the OCD in me, but I found a good pen, and I've been using them for years.
