    some get from inflicting death and violence- when that connection is made. if sex energy (or whatever) is going to the wrong side in significant proportion and the right side is relatively unused, it may be some people learn triggering behaviors, like stimulating emotion, to open the right side to receive what should have gone there in the first place.

      g only right-handed one.  Reagan was supposedly ambidextrous.

      This breaks down a bit as you go further back, with Hoover being left-handed, FDR right, Truman left, Ike, Kennedy, LBJ and Nixon all right, Ford - left, Carter -right.  OTOH, the only non-'war president' there who was right-handed was Ike... who was big dog in WW2 Europe and pretty much created nuclear brinksmanship.

      Make of it what u will.

        adaptability and tolerance, and might help brain balance i suppose.

        then there'd also be compensation and overcompensation. and i remember seeing something about hitler being left handed.... and something about the general rule of left right brain function being switched- so the right brain for logic, while stigmatized as left handed....

        i also know a left hander who says he learned sex with the right...

          ve attempts to 'correct' handedness.  How many criminals did the pegiuns create?  :)

          (BTw, I am lef-handed, went to Catholic school thru 6th grade but loved arguing with the pengiuns, little heretic that i was.  Then I went to a jesuit college... but the jesuits long ago ceased being 'good Catholics' for hard core. :) )
