Comment Re:Mixed-handedness (Score 3, Interesting) 260

I trained as a sniper long ago.I can shoot equally well either way.I can put a bullet where I want is up to a mile range without a scope.Any longer range using a scope,I'm definitely right handed.
I learned how to write left handed when I was in the first grade after my right hand was crushed by a home delivery milk truck in the early 1960s.Took forever to heal and I've kept it up.Drives the banks crazy because I sign the checks I write with either hand.Love messing with their heads.
My late Mother was left handed but was retrained to write right handed.My sister Terry is definitely a lefty.
Handedness may be hard wired but can be modified.I'm a prime example.

Same Here.I write right handed but learned to drive left handed.Might be where I learned to drive on an old 1964 Ford Pickup with 3 on the Tree(3 Speed Column shift - Remember those?)When hardware hacking and typing,I use both hands equally well.Go Figure
