    I think this is not fair I know many right handed geniuses. and it is true whether you believe or not but there is proof that Einstein was right hander and picaso , van gogh , Michael faraday also.
    I think left handers are good at politics and sports but in science and in art right handers are better
    than lefties I think right handers are more creative and intelligent than lefties.

    Ben Franklin, Mozart, and Pythagorus. These guys contributed a lot more than some of those politicians and”leaders.” And recently I read Albert Einstein was also lefty… made to write right-handed as a youngster.

    I just wanted to point out that most Egyptian Gods are painted or posed carrying the ‘Ankh’ (the symbol of being a God) in their left hand. They also stand with their left foot slightly infront of the right. According to research into Body Language by standing with the left side slightly forward the person facing you are more likely to be honest and truthful with you.

    The place of Leonardo in history as an artist and even as a scientist is well known. Many of his inventions, such as the helicopter, were only on paper, however. His actual achievements and contributions to the technology of his time are less well known and somewhat problematical. On the one hand, it is said that none of his ideas were practical, while on the other, it is said that his improvements in canal locks have been imitated ever since.

    […] I really enjoy making lists and tracking to-dos on paper. Sure, we’re devoted Drive and Basecamp users, but my personal organizational method also involves some paper record-keeping. No nested files, no perfect typeface- just my scribbly writing. I don’t have Bryan’s obsession with pens, and Emily’s organizational skills are on another level, but some of my most natural content creation starts on a simple piece of paper. Oh, and I’m left handed- Like Obama, Bush, Fidel Castro, and Oprah. […]
