Talking of numbers; as I'm number Two (no jokes please) does that mean I have to kidnap Aspen (number Six) and make them live in a weird looking welsh village and then chase him/her with a demented weather balloon?

Or maybe we could just do that to important right handers to destabilise there power base

Nature has avenged left handers in our house hold.
My good lady and myself are both of the right handed persuassion, but nature has seen fit to bless us with no less two left handed children. 100% of our offspring are sinister..erm sinistral  ;D

No, take that back, they are definitely sinister  ;D ;D

Might I join your organization?  As the only sinistral in a large family of dexters, I've had to put up with a fair share of right-dominated thinking.  However, I'm faster typing with only my left hand thn my mother is with two.   :)  The only real problem I have as far as dealing with right-handed implements is the can-opener.  I always fight with the bloody thing to turn it.  Infuriating.  Down with the righties!
"And shepherds we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee.  Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.  And we shall flow a river for to Thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be.  In nomine Patri, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti."

Yes, the bloody can-openers!  Infernal contraptions!

Can you flip it over, and twist the "mouse ears" towards you (rather than away, as righties do)?  Still, it is most inconvenient. 

I am actually beginning to make friends with some electric can openers.

I am also a lefty (as is my father and nephew).  My family is very statically accurate.  2 boys, 2 girls, 1/4 left-handed...Well, that's actually all the stats I can think of related to genetic inheritance. 

This is also my first post, so...yay, newbie!

*whispers*
Mr Zarate, sir, you've got Vienna Fahrmann and Sir Nikolas Vendigroth listed twice in your manifest.

Marble thanks you for adding him as our feline liaison.  He is purring quite contentedly at the moment.

Wait, I listed their names TWICE?

I must have made some sort of error somewhere... they can't possibly have both numbers!

I'll review the thread in the morning.  I'm liable to screw it up again at this ungodly hour. ;D

I am hoping to be able to buy myself a new bass guitar body. I have a fretless neck I aquired for a build project some time ago and I'd really like to get that project wrapped up. *crosses fingers*
I only knew that you'd know that I knew, did you know that?

Throwing my hat in the ring, as a left handed member. Glad to see that I am in such great company!
