Is it true that they are more successful? Is it true that they are more likely to be homosexual? Is it true that they are better or worse at certain mental tasks? Is it true that they have an above average intelligence? Is it true that they are less religious? Are there any other differences?

How many lefties do we have here?

It seems to me like I've always been ambidextrous but they say you can't be born that way so I'm probably a lefty coerced into using my right, like most ambies.

I'm a lefty. I'm not homosexual nor do I have above average intelligence nor am I an Atheist so I'm not sure what to say about these theories. :/

nope.

left hand = weak hand

weak = evil

lefties use the weak hand... lefties use the "evil" hand

lefties are evil.

Of the seven most recent U.S. Presidents, four have been left-handed, including Barack Obama, while a fifth is said to have been ambidextrous. Ronald Reagan, who was left-handed by birth,[29][30][31] became president after he defeated left-handed candidate George H W Bush in the Republican primary election. Four years earlier, Reagan had lost the Republican presidential primary to incumbent left-handed President Gerald Ford. George H W Bush succeeded Reagan and later ran for re-election against left-handers Bill Clinton[32] and Ross Perot[33]. Clinton's second term opponents included Perot, and Bob Dole who had become left-handed when his right arm was paralyzed in combat fifty years earlier. Obama defeated left-handed Senator John McCain in his race for the presidency.[34] Thus, a left-handed president was often the only possible outcome of an election.

Yeah, I consider myself right handed (I write, throw, bat, and play tennis right handed), but I can do a few things left handed, too.

In Middle eastern cultures they use the right hand for eating while using the left hand for doing bathroom things such as wiping your a$s.

That's because they don't use toilet paper. Not even kidding.

I just remembered the complete retardation of my life as a 7 year old
We were aught that our left shoulder had a devil (With all ebil stuffz) and an angel on our right (with all good stuffz). We were actual encouraged, no sh*t, to pat the air above our right while swiping at the air above our left.

I now recognise the significance of the devil on the left, but Christ that was stupid @_@.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Yea, that's kinda the thing I was referring to. Middle eastern cultures use their left hand for bathroom things since they believe the devil is on the left or whatever. The right hand is used for everything else. To shake their hand using your left hand is also a major form of disrespect.
