Us Lefties are Doomed Once Again :: Quips

Deb loves to point out all the niceties about living with a south paw (and there are many).  She clipped this graph out of the USA Today more than 10 years ago and I just found it going through some of my old photos this past weekend.

Once again I am shown what a right handed world we live in.  Everything from increased cancer risk to playing in sports, we are more likely to be doomed from birth.  Yes, even scripture talks about us left handed people, but the Bible calls us out more as the privileged ones (haha).

  1. Judges 3:15
    Again the Israelites cried out to the LORD, and he gave them a deliverer—Ehud, a lefthanded man, the son of Gera the Benjamite. The Israelites sent him with tribute to Eglon king of Moab.
    Judges 3:14-16 (in Context) Judges 3 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Judges 20:16
    Among all these soldiers there were seven hundred chosen men who were lefthanded, each of whom could sling a stone at a hair and not miss. Judges 20:15-17 (in Context) Judges 20 (Whole Chapter)

Although I can’t imagine 700 left handed people chosen at one place to do anything, but must have been a heck of a party.
