One of the running jokes I had with fellow colleagues when working and studying was that nearly everyone could not work out how to use my mouse or thought that it was broken. Well it wasn’t; for I am left-handed — a south paw if you will. Instead of using a computer mouse in my right hand (which so many of the worlds computer uses do) I use my left hand and also swap the buttons around so that the index finger is being used for the ‘left-click’ and that my middle finger is for the ‘right-click’.
Us lefties are in the minority and have existed since the beginning, our numbers aren’t changing. However it is interesting to note the famous lefties that exist. I was surprised to learn today that the most powerful man in the world is lefthanded and of course I am talking about the Forty Forth President of the United States: Barack H Obama. After the image there are a few lists of more famous lefties.
George H Bush
Olivia De Havilland
Sir Paul McCartney
