i am too, but ive never really noticed it. writing left handed is a chore, you either have to break your wrist or smudge ink as you move across, so im kind of a self imposed righty there.

balanced mind? well, i do hear the little voices in either ear, is that what you mean russ? :)

ME too, and totally colourblind so I guess I am fooked. :laugh:

Only problem ambidextras cause me ( to my mind ) so far. is SOMETIMES I cant make up my mind which hand to lead with and which foot to kick with.. and hesitation can be a big major screw up.. AND IM BEING SERIOUS..
Yes writing can be a bitch... just takes a little longer.

Nice to know I'm not alone in my affliction :) ...

I right right handed..but eat lefthanded...can easily drive left or right hand drive vehicles..but cant ride a bike standing on my head.....yet :P ...

when neighbours put shelves up they get me in to screw or drill the tight left hand stuff...same when working on stuff...keft handed is handy...right is easy...

I only discovered it when my right arm,hand,wrist was fractured years ago...

and no. Buying a ccm is common sence...lol..

I've always held the fork and knife cack handed, archery is another where I'm better left handed. I use the mouse on one PC left handed and on another it's on the right and makes no difference. Driving LHD or RHD makes no difference and I can swap almost without any rethinking, I drive to the German airport fly to the UK and pick up a RHD with no recognisable adaptation.
Also bilingual and reading strange words that are not common to either language I sometimes cant recognise what language...bit like reading abid extras and getting confused :whistle: :evil:
Sorry but it's the way I read now
