International Lefthanders Day - August 13 is designated International Lefthanders Day by Lefthanders International. It was first observed on the 13th of August, 1976. As the name suggests, it is meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences facing left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world. It celebrates their uniqueness and differences, who are from seven to ten percent of the world's population. Thousands of left-handed people in today's society have to adapt to use right handed tools and objects.

There’s also a more serious side to the day, which spreads awareness about the special needs of left-handed kids. Also, left-handers are far more likely to develop schizophrenia than right-handers, for reasons not well understood.

and....

National Filet Mignon Day - his holiday is celebrated by eating and serving filet mignon in it's honor.

The guy I am seeing confided in me that he had conflict with several people in his life at one period of time and concluded it could be because they were all left handed. So he went to a therapist about it who told him that had nothing to do with it. Just thought that was a funny conclusion for him to draw but in spite of what he was told he still wanted to know which hand I use.

Gee! I once read a " demotuvator " poster that said. " the common denominator of all your failed relationships is you.

Nothing about " handed- ness" be careful with this one ;-)
