See I remember reasing many moons ago, another study or studies, that lefties make less and die sooner than righties. Altho they tended to be more creative (Is that Right Brained?) and end up as artists and other things that dontl; pay very well unless you're one of the top 10 in th world

Quote:

Men - Lefties make more money than righties
Women - No difference between Right or Left - either way on average they still make less than men
Is this designed to be inflammatory or something?

Left men make more than Right men.

Women make les than men

The relevent comparison would be do Left women make more/less/the same as Right women. The other comparison is irrlevent here and is a completely different subject

16 people viewed this poll so far and only 2 answered? What's up with that?

I'll try to do better next poll razz ;) I thought I was right in what I said, but I guess I should have left something out, eh?

I think we discussed this before, maybe we should ask Unclemick, our resident left-handed INTJ engineer if he recalls the thread.

According to this article, lefties...

...are more likely to be schizophrenic, alcoholic, delinquent, dyslexic, and have Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as mental disabilities. They're also more likely to die young and get into accidents. So if evolutionary theory dictates survival of the fittest, why do lefties still exist?

...[researchers] found strong support for the idea that, at least in primitive societies with higher levels of violence, lefties thrive.


The higher the murder rate, the larger the percentage of lefties...or is that the other way around? :o :laugh:

No, actually should have included more stuff. Like context.

What you said was factually *correct but bizzare in it's placement. Left handed men make more money right handers and roses, as we expected are usually *red.

Sometimes I'm only half right.

According to Wikipedia, 8-15% of adults are left-handed. We seem to have a higher proportion on our forum, although the sample is small--so far. Lots more interesting info here:

Before I opened this thread I thought for sure that was going to be the question.

Other researchers have found that left-handers are overrepresented on university faculties, as well as among gifted students, artists and musicians.

OK, OK, I know all you cunning linguists have been shuffling your feet and hoping someone else would take the initiative, so here we go. I just hope it's not too subtle for those of you who didn't keep up with your high-school Latin (or "The Simpsons"):

Looks pretty sinister to me...

Nords, I think I am more sinister than you are, and you are more dexter.

(sorry Al for goofy grammar)
