For those of you who don’t now, Sunday August 13th is International Left-Handers Day, so in homage to lefties everywhere, abrozzi has compiled this list of annoying problems that all left-handers face on a daily basis.

If you’re left-handed then you’re probably aware that, whether you like it or not, this is a right-handed world. From scissors and desks to ring binders and ice-cream scoopers, everything seems to be designed with the righties in mind, which isn’t really surprising when you realize that around 90% of the world’s population is right-handed.

Still, there’s a pretty impressive list of lefties crammed into that remaining 10%. Did you know that Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Aristotle and Julius Caesar were all left-handed for instance? And let’s not forget Albert Einstein, Neil Armstrong, Winston Churchill, Bill Gates, and Barack Obama. And Jimi Hendrix. And Kurt Cobain. And Paul McCartney. And David Bowie, Charlie Chaplin, Robert de Niro, Angelina Jolie, Keanu Reeves, Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise, and Jon Stewart, plus a whole bunch of other people we don’t have the space to write about. If we haven’t made our point yet then what we’re trying to say is that, although left-handed people might be in the minority, that doesn’t make them any less awesome, and some of the world’s most important contributions have in fact come from left-handers.

Despite this however, non-righties have had a pretty hard time throughout history. The word «left» is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word «lyft», meaning «weak», and the word «sinister» actually derives from the Latin word meaning «left». Left-handers were also thought to consort with the devil, and being left-handed was sometimes considered proof that a woman was a witch and should therefore be persecuted or even executed! Fortunately those days are long gone though, and the only things left-handers have to worry about these days are using a can opener without making a mess, and trying to write without getting ink all over the side of their hand. Scroll down to see some other problems that the modern leftie has to face. Can you relate? Then let us know in the comments below and don’t forget to vote. Happy International Left-Handers Day everybody!
