Link does not work Aug 13, 2008

Since that link which Juan posted does not appear to work, here is another one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-handedness

which has some interesting theories and links.

My own: the 13th was chosen because it has connotations of ill-luck, or of things which have a sinister aspect to them. Sinister is derived from the Latin word for 'left'.

The devil was left-handed, being the opposite of God, who was (naturally) right-handed.

Therefore, the whole thing is a government conspiracy.

My 10 year old son, Vasco, is lefthanded!

I am going to tell him. I did not even know he had a day!
