1. Lefties earn more (sorta)
According to a recent study, there’s no income difference in the regular population, but lefties earn 10%-15% more than righties among college-educated people. Which is weird because those college desks are The Worst for lefties.
2. Lefties are better fencers
American Olympic fencer Race Imboden (pictured right) is a lefty. A higher than average portion of Olympic fencers are lefties.
3. Lefties learn to drive more easily
Even though cars are made for righties, an AA Driving School poll found that 57% of lefties pass their driver’s tests on the first try, compared with only 47% of righties.
4. We adjust to seeing underwater faster
All the better to get away from sharks.
5. Don’t have to switch utensils from hand to hand while eating
American righties hold the fork in their left hand while cutting, then switch it to the right to eat.
6. Lefties have an advantage in baseball
25% of pro baseball players are southpaw, and there’s a lot of reasons why. Ken Griffey, Jr here is a lefty.
7. So many lefty Presidents! Barack Obama
Obama has that kind of baby-ish claw hand way of holding a pen.
Clinton, holds a pen normally, not like Obama’s weird babyclaw.
Throwing lefty, but he held a pen in his right hand (he was probably forced to learn that way in school).
8. Bowling is better
Because most people are right handed, the oil gets used up on the lane way faster on the right side. Advantage to lefties.
