    Thanks for all the handedness and footedness info.

    I know that people have a dominant eye also.

    So we have covered hands, feet and eyes.

    Let us look at the other pairs.

    What about ears? Is there a dominant ear?

    What other pair can we discuss here? :)

    ^ You still haven't covered:

    1. dominant nostril for breathing - acco to the "breathing experts" several diseases are caused by people breathing predominantly from one nostril, so they claim.

    2. dominant side of mouth for chewing

    3. I won;t go there, we all know one is larger than the other. (But Mats might prefer to chime in).

    I am neither left handed nor Spanish. I might as well end it all now.

    I am Spanish and right-handed, but I can hold a clumsy, slow rally left-handed at tennis or pingpong. Most people I know can't even catch the ball with the stringbed, even at that turtle pace. I blame my piano chops, but it could be that Spanish Juice they use to spike the water supply here.

    Actually, it is the rope poachers use to chase down and kill Hypotes.

    I do think it's pretty much finished......my brother, father and grandmother all left handed and went to Catholic schools in France, Belgium and Spain and the Nuns would use a ruler or a wood pointer and whip your left hand if you used it for anything! The left hand was the "hand of the Devil". I know a few folks here in the states who also say that back in the 60s and 70s the Nuns would whack that left hand.

    I am right handed except for crossing my arms and winking. I am a left winker, meaning I can only keep my left eye open and right eye closed. Trying to do it the other way around (like a normal right winker) requires excessive distortion of my face muscles, and even then the view is blurry. This means that in the military service I had to shoot left handed (holding the gun with the right hand and pulling the trigger with the left). My bad marksmanship due to this problem was compounded by the fact that at the shooting tunnel they didn’t provide us with ear protection, so I always tried to discharge the magazine as fast as possible, almost without aiming, to get out of there quickly.
