Are you a Lefty or Righty (Believe it or not, Crohn's Related!)

Statistics show left-handed people are more likely to be schizophrenic, alcoholic, delinquent, dyslexic, and have Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis

So are you a Lefty or a Righty? Lets see if our forum can get the same results as the article did!

Get outta town! Really? It's Crohn's related? Far out. Thanks for the link, btw, I've got to read that...lol. Amazing. It'll be interesting to see how this poll progresses!

Funny thing is, I am a righty now, but until I was 11 or 12 when I broke my left wrist, I was ambidextrious (I doubt I spelled that right). My left arm was in a cast for so long, I lost the ability to use my left hand for writing.

Now I'm wondering....if I'd never broken my left wrist, given that I have Crohn's, would I be predominately a lefty now, or a righty? Hmmmmmmm..? There's something else for me to wonder about. This one is right up there with "what came first, the chicken or the egg"..lol. (My own personal opinion is that the chicken came first..ha)

Yeah I kinda figured that since there were only 2 votes so far and it was split 50/50..lol. Sorry, I can be a smarta$$ at times.

I am a simple, boring righty. But I guess already it seems like their is a larger than normal amount of people who are lefties.

Funny how something so simple could be related to this all.

Add another lefty to the list .

That was an interesting article. Lefties having an advantage in some sports was not too surprising to me, but a lot of the other information in that article was.

Us lefties are the only ones in our right mind!

Ok, this my not totally make sense but it's due to my lack of explaining it any better.....
Lefties only make up 10-13 percent of the population. Which makes us in the ballpark of a 9/1 ratio or rights vs. lefties. So for every one of the lefties vote would be equal 9 votes for righties. So even though the vote as of right now is 14 to 7 in favor of the rigthers if you take up into consideration of the 10 of us population you can turn the 7 votes into 63 for lefties to 14 righters.
Basically I am mathmatically making stating for ever 10 righter handers with crohns equals 1 left with it... Yeah I was always bad at math.

Am I making any sense? Does anyone know what I am saying?

I think I get what you are saying .

The point I get from it is that while Righties still outnumber Lefties on the poll, the difference is quite different compared to the difference between the lefties and righties normally in the rest of the world.

After reading this thread I too have a headache! lol

I'm a lefty for writing on paper.
I'm a lefty and a righty for playing golf.
I'm a righty when it comes to playing sport.
I write right handed on a blackboard or whiteboard.

I'm also ambidextrous when it comes to writing on paper.

Hmmmmmm....where does that put me then? Am I left of centre or right of left? Do I swing both ways? lol

Soooo which hand do you use to tie your shoes?!?!?!? That will tell which "true" handed you are. As for the question if you swing both ways.... It just doesn't matter which side of the plate you stand on as long as you don't strike out.
