So where stands the list now?  Is it the twentieth spot for me, or the twenty-first?

it would seem that I must place my smeared signature on this short list of "correcthanders" since I, too, am of the rightbrained persuasion. so, when do we attack? hmmm... on second thought, do not say when for I'm sure that the wronghanders have spies flitting about somewhere on here.
it iz pozzible... I think... maybe sort of

Exactly! Although, I'm more of a mutual double agent. I tell them what you want me to, and I tell you what they want me to.

They told me to tell you that they won't because they can't because they have no cheese.

You can't fire "them". "They"'re not working for you. "They" are the opposite side.

You are the 20th member now.  Helios is merely a liaison...

Oh, and Drac, you're #21. I also wouldn't worry about helios - the Kiwis are far enough from the civilized world that they're mostly harmless (notwithstanding Russell Crowe). ;)

Himself, you're #22.  Welcome to the League!

Hah hah. Just because the NZ curriculum doesn't involve memorizing the contents of a dictionary.WoWowow. You did not just go there. Russell Crowe may have been born here, but he's an Aussie. Ask him. We can be pretty dangerous too. Look what happened with The Flight of The Conchords, and LotR.

Finally, a place where no one will insist I "just try writing with [my] right hand" or make me throw a baseball or shoot a rifle right-handed! The only thing I do right-handed is use scissors, since as a child the only available scissors were right-handed scissors, and while I did try to use them in my left hand, it hurt terribly!

Ah yes I remember getting a cramped hand in school from scissors; I've got scissors in work that are meant to be for left handers, they are the worst scissors ever though

My father was a natural leftie whose parents had coerced him into using his right hand by stabbing his left hand with a fork or other pointy implement every time he used it.

Well now, apparently that propensity for madness in lefthanders has an explanation that isn't merely statistical, after all.

I remember reading a study that concluded that lefthandedness was correlated with a lower lifespan.  Their reasoning was that the incidence of lefthandedness in the general population dropped off markedly above age 70.  Unfortunately the authors forgot to take into account that 70 years prior was roughly the time that lefthandedness being "cured" by beating fell out of favor.

In my days at school, I only ever had one instructor who did not request me to use my right hand to write and use other implements, and that was because the esteemable lady was left-handed herself! I realize my handwriting is very spidery and illegible, but that has more to do with the haste in which I attempt to get the thoughts out of my head and onto paper than which hand I use in the process. I don't know why all my other instructors assumed I had been writing with the wrong hand all my life. It seems a bit presumptuous.

Bonny, you're our 23rd member.  And Prometheus, you're our 24th.

Our organization is growing daily. :)

I've got a snazzy pair that're both left-handed and right handed at the same time.

I don't know how that works.

Maye they're just wierd.  ;D

That's only possible if the blades aren't side-by-side when closed, but rather, edge-to-edge.  And for scissors, that'd be a bit odd.
