    ROFL, i just read that as "If someone holds a gun to you do you get confused"

    Firstly i was thinking confused ... hell that aint the word i'd use. Then i wondered what part of wales you live in where its a regular occurance to hold a gin to someone. Then i reread it :worried: :lol:

    Anyway im a righty, cant do sod all with my left hand, except type and even that mostly sucks... :baby:

    I'm a righty, and definitely left-handed retarded!!!!! Although I do skate goofy footed and I'm left eye dominant, very weird to watch me aim a pistol :D

    Same, I've been goofy all my life, even on the old skool deck I had as a kid. Can't for the life of me push regular.

    And where's the Ambi option?

    Left:
    Fork
    Brush, teeth and hair
    Mouse
    File
    Saw
    Write
    Weld
    Solder

    Right:
    Knife
    Guns and rifles.
    Rackets, beach, ping pong, and also without racket just with my bare hand :D
    Mouse
    Hammer


    I would say that my left hand is for precision and my right hand for power/strength.

    I'm a snowboard instructor, and have found that there is no link between handedness, footedness and goofyness. (I'm right handed & footed and goofy btw)
    Many of my students assumed they'd be one or the other based on their handed or footedness and about half where surprised to learn otherwise.

    But as an instructor I found I had time (and an incentive) to learn to be able to board switch. (If you find it difficult you may want to adjust your stance angles)

    I found it much easier to ride a snowboard switch than a skateboard for some reason.

    Sports:

    Basket Ball - ambi
    Snooker - left
    Golf - right
    Cricket (inc batting) - left
    Racket Sports - ambi, slightly better with left than right
    Rugby - ambi, kick with left foot

    Writing - left
    using Computer - right handed
    Eating - right
    Drinking - left
    Reading - left eye is dominant

    I'm mainly left handed... I don't know why I started playing golf right handed - I guess the first club I picked up was right handed, and it seemed natural to swing the club that way. With the putter, I'm as good with either left or right hands.
