Home / Entertainment / Funny / Video: Happy Left-handers Day To All Those Upside Down Writing Freaks Of Nature!


Today is the day we celebrate and acknowledge the struggles that left-handed people face on a daily basis. Only 10–12% of the world's population is actually left-handed, that's 836,000,000 people across the globe, out of a total population of 7.6 billion.

You have probably heard a left-handed person say at least once that they live in a world designed for right-handers – which is true because the vast majority of human beings are right-handed, making the left-handed products much more difficult to buy.

Although there is no hard evidence, psychologists such as Chris McManus, from University College London, think that left-handed people's brains are wired differently to most people and often end up having unique talents and excellent problem-solving abilities. Although lefties won't be trusted to write in your friends birthday card, science shows that they are more likely to be more creative than right-handed people and even have better hand-eye coordination. In fact, left-handed people tend to excel in sports such as baseball and tennis.

Still not convinced that being a leftie isn't so bad? Well, don't worry, you are among some of the greatest people like Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Lady Gaga.
