Dare those of us afflicted with the curse of left-handedness dream to feel normal? Dare we challenge the tyranny of the right-handed majority, the cruel oppression that forces us to use those crummy scissors with the green rubber around the edge (and god help you if there’s 4 lefties in your 3rd grade class and only 3 left-handed scissors).
Thankfully, artist Silvio Lorusso has created “Internet For Left-Handers”, a Chrome plugin which turns the gloved hand cursor (visible when you’re hovering over a link) into a left hand.
Finally, dignity is restored to those with the side of their hands smeared with pencil and ink from dragging it across the page. For those whose handwriting will never be neat. For those who had to pass off the one left-handed baseball glove in gym class. For those who will die earlier and will never be able to use a fountain pen because it’ll smear too much. For those who had to twist their backs to get comfortable in college lecture halls desks. For those who can never read a measuring cup.
This magnificent art piece should be hanging in the Louvre, for truly, it has uplifted the masses and given voice to us southpaws who suffer stoically in silence.
Then, hit the hand button whenever you want a page to switch over to left-handed browsing.
And voila! Left-handed browsing!
