    Left handed but forced to write right handed. Wear my watch on my right arm and used to play cricket left handed until forced to change because the fielders didn't like changing.

    I'm moody as hell and have dyslexia and learning difficulties, otherwise I'd have been smart enough to stay away from Thailand

    I write with my left. Can use many tools with either. Always put my left leg in pants first. Wear my watch on my right.

    I was originally left handed but when you are cracked over your knuckles with the edge of a ruler for writing with you left hand at primary school you very quickly learn to write with your right hand only
    Now right handed for writing, kick with my left foot, Play cricket and golf left handed, tennis i play right handed, They fook you up by forcing people to change hands you naturally use and it no longer happens at schools in Aust

    Time for an anecdote interlude.

    An American tourist was touring the golf courses in Ireland when he came upon a small town with a beautiful golf course
    He wanted to play and hired a caddy. Played his game and enjoyed it very much.
    So he said to the caddy, "Play with me tomorrow, and if you win, I'll pay you double."
    "OK" says Paddy the caddy, "What time?"
    "10 am" says Frank the yank.
    "OK, 10 am it is, but I may be half an hour late"
    "That's OK, see you at 10" says Frank.

    Promptly at 10 Paddy turns up and proceeds to play left handed and wins the game.
    Franks is fine with his loss but wants to play again. "Tomorrow at 10?" he asks Paddy...."Sure to be sure, but I might be half an hour late".
    Next morning Paddy is there on the dot of 10, and plays his game, this time right handed, and wins again.

    "That's amazing" exclaims Frank. Yesterday you won playing left-handed, today you won playing right-handed! How do you do that?"
    "Well," says Paddy, "I'm very superstitious. When I'm going to have a game, when I wake up if my wife is sleeping on her left side, I play left-handed, and if she is sleeping on her right side, I play right-handed. It's as simple as that."
    "That's incredible" says Frank. "What do you do if she's sleeping on her back?"
    "Well now, then I'll be half an hour late".

    I'm defo not ambidextrous but right-handed / left-footed as mentioned earlier and thinking about it more now I do certain things with certain hands - e.g. I'd throw a ball with my right but a dart with my left.

    I did know a guy who could play himself at golf left v. right handed though, and play well with it. Think he was off a 5 and 6 HCP respectively. That was pretty impressive.

    I am sinister and have often been acused of being gauche, but never adroit and seldom right.

    Even on such a small sample , we are an exceptional, eccentric selection
    The dds of only 4/15 people anywhere being right handed must be phenomenal

    More than 90% unlikley
    Probability Calculator

    Obviously depends on veracity of the sample but you'd expect less than 2 not 11/15 to NOT be right handed

    Perhaps the very right hemishere inclned types like me are attracted to the random anarchy that is Siam for all its ills it is very accepting of difference

    More likely that those right-handed forum members couldn't give a fcuk to vote in the poll.

    I'm kack-handed but apart from writing I do everything as if right handed, although it does seem strange trying to eat right handed with a fork or spoon.

    Was definitely schooled that lefty was wrong ( kack-handed) but no matter how they tried I couldn't do the handwriting with my right.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Mother consumed great dosages of thermaldahyde. Would have selected none of the above had there been a poll selection.

    For the guys who enjoy snooker. Here is Ronnie mixing it up with both hands.



    If interested, check out the hoo har when he wiped Alain Robidoux (French-Canadian dude) back in '96 playing the whole lot left -handed.
