Grumpus | 473 comments Did you notice the poll below? (scroll all the way down on the group homepage or click the "polls" link to the right)

I love surveys (its what I do)! I'll look for more that ask a question and then reference a book for more answers but feel free to add any type of your own.

Grumpus | 473 comments Only 12 responses thus far. Can it be that left-handers are more likely to listen to audiobooks?

About 10%-12% of the population is left-handed but they account for 25% of our group based upon our small sample as of this morning.

C'mon take a second to let us know which "side" you're on by answering the survey.

S.G | 39 comments Grumpus, they, the left-handed are all in a shock, dying earlier is a heavy dose to digest.

Grumpus | 473 comments Yes, The life span for lefties is significantly shorter. Thankfully, insurance companies don't factor handedness into their rates!

S.G | 39 comments But they do! Your life insurance agent always take note of which hand you sign their forms with!

Patty (bookswoman) Actually the whole "lefties die earlier" thing is slowly being debunked. Since we are only about two/three generations into the culture of not forcing the left-handed to write/work with their right hand, all previous studies are at fault. Give it a couple of more generations and you should be able to judge more accurately.

Patty - third generation lefty, and my Dad and his other two lefty siblings weren't "switched" but his uncle was and suffered a nervous breakdown as a result.

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) | 108 comments Oh dear; seems the left-handed folk have been overtaken by the right-handed folk in the poll.
