Definately not good stuff. I'd heard about that.

Luckily one of my aunt's {my mom's sis} retained her ability to sing {in choir} after she was forced into right-handedness.

I went to Catholic school in the 60s and the nuns tried to make us switch to our right hand. But I am 100% left handed and they gave up on me after a couple of days. There was always 5 or 6 of each year they couldn't break.

I'm glad they stopped this practice. I think there are more important things to worry about in school.

I'm a right hander, and I just want to say that I cannot do anything remotely well with my left hand. So I have a a fact i found from my useless facts book - "left-handed people live, on average, nine years less than right-handed people."
Sorry if I spoiled the mood!

Collect everything that makes you live longer or shorter and in the end it won't matter whether you're left-handed or right-handed.
