Happy Belated Left Handers Day!

peternyc:

I can’t believe I missed the only holiday I’ve never celebrated yesterday.

August 13th is officially International Lefthanders Day

Some fun facts:

“Left handed people as a group have historically produced an above-average quota of high achievers.” via Right-Hand, Left Hand by Chris McManus

Among college educated people, left-handers earned 10-15% more income than right-handed counterparts.
