left-handed

6

Yay, I tried that meme thing where you draw the same picture with all of your hands and feet- 
It’s amazing, I am left handed and my left foot also worked better than my right foot so this is a beautiful proof for the fact that it’s really about the brain and not only about practice.


(the cat is my favorite because in the first picture it looks surprised, in the second picture it looks concerned, in the third picture it’s very unhappy and in the last one it’s just super pissed.) 

We hope you Lefties are celebrating today.

Happy Left Handers’ Day!

NPR’s reporting on left-handedness covers two main topics: the causes of left-handedness and successful people who are left-handed (mostly presidents and baseball pitchers). 

This story, from a special series, Science Outside of the Box, takes an interdisciplinary approach to the question of left-handedness.

NPR’s Jacki Lyden talks to researcher Chris McManus who examined archived film footage of British people waving at the camera to see what he could learn about left-handedness, society, and life in the Victorian era.
