10. Cooking, actually I can make cookies and they are good! but that's about where it ends.*

9. Sprints, the fact that I hate them doesn't really help me!

8. Hiding my emotions

7. Icing! trainers would know what I'm talking about

6. Saying no when it comes to buying shoes

5. Packing less, simply doesn't exist in my vocabulary

4. Following someone's directions, cause they make way too many mistakes, no excuses though haha

3. Figuring out electronics, why can't things be easy to operate?

2. Saying 'you're right'

1. Being patient, fine i'll work on it!

Hmmm some people would probably disagree with her number 8, what with her "Ice Queen" nickname on court :lol:

Lefty.

She's a natural lefty, she should be able to figure out directions pretty well. :p :lol:

Oh man. :lol: I always have to help my mom get to a new place. And i'm always like :rolleyes: . Makes me wish that I could drive already. :lol:

Maria's electronic thing depends on what kind of electronic it is. Some are complicated but when you use it a few times, all is good. :)

Well you might get lost a lot but you've got all the other good attributes of a left-handed person. You know what they say - "A person who is left handed is in their right mind!!"

She's a natural lefty, she should be able to figure out directions pretty well. :p :lol:

well, I'm a lefty too (which explains why John McEnroe, not Borg, became my first tennis hero). I can figure out directions in a town or city where there are buildings and landmarks, but in a farm or small village it takes a while for me to familiarize.

Also, lefty Paul McCartney was known to have a tendency to pedal a bicycle backwards when he was a kid, because everything was in reverse for him.

I didn't know it is a stereotype for lefties to be good with directions. Depends on the place IMO. Here, the stereotype for lefties is they're "artistic" (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney). But since I'm not good with any art form, including music, the stereotype once again doesn't apply to me.

One thing about lefties (or at least, people who use their left hand even though they're right-handed) that I think is true, they're very good with "sticks". Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb, Ted Williams, Barry Bonds, Rod Laver, John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Jimmy Connors. Even the switch-hitting Mickey Mantle batted slightly better "left".

I think it's because they have good hand-eye coordination. Like, many of the lefty tennis players have EXCELLENT hands. The artistic part comes from the fact that we use the right side of our brains more, and that invokes more artistic qualities. But my friends always say that being good with directions is because you're left handed.

Although while I was doing my project on "lefthandedness", articles did say that left handed people have very good hand-eye coordination, they did say that leftys were about 5 times more likely to have a finger/limb accidentally amputated by a power tool. :tape: :help:

The last part was correct, and that's primarily because most power tools, most tools in fact, are designed for right handers. most of the time, it's just inconvenient, but the most dangerous ones, the chain saw especially, are likely to take a part of you off. There are very few left handed chain saws, and they are more expensive than regular ones.

From can openers and cell phones (the key pad) to guns, it's a right handed world. If you're a member of the Australian Army, and use a rifle left handed, you are likely to be hit by ejected empties in the face, and even if you don't get hit, the sensation of those hot brass shell flying across your face will make you flinch. With the new M16 with the rubber bump on the ejection port, this is no longer that big a problem. But with the Steyr AUG rifle, you'll have to ask for a new weapon, or learn to shoot right handed. Most safeties (those mechanisms that prevent a firearm from being triggered) on older weapons are also for right handed users, so a left handed shooter is at a disadvantage again. More modern weapons have ambidexterous safeties, but the ejection port is still for right handers. (I know, too much information for most people already.)

I get by with the mouse (the computer mouse, that is), I don't even bother switching the buttons. I think I learned to use the mouse the right handed way in terms of clicking, although I use the left hand.

Damn, this is going to confuse a lot of right handers who are not good with directions :p .

what are you talking about? your poster boy Nadal is left handed :D Actually, he only plays lefty but is right handed, while his mentor Moya is left handed but plays righty. (Is he your poster boy, btw? If not, I'm sorry.)

Wow, lots of info about weaponry. :lol: Interesting, so that's why some left handed people in the army use the guns right handed.

And yes, I just use the computer mouse with the right hand, so much easier than doing it left. :lol:

I agree with that. Ice bags or packs around the knee, hip, waist, even shoulders. etc. Also dipping the arm on a bucket of water and ice. Baseball pitchers do that after every game. Usually they have to wear an oversized laundry glove so the ice doesn't directly touch and damage the skin and other tissue. Athletes pay a heavy price for the success they get.

Yeah I think that's what she meant too. Maybe she feels like she doesn't do it often enough?

I feel she's wrong about #8 though, at least when it comes to playing tennis.
