Hey, i noticed yesterday when killing the innocents http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif (again) that altair has the hidden blade on his left hand. Is altair lefty? If he is then awsome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif im a lefty too!

I voted both as it depends what im doing for example I use a pc right handed but I ise a bow or a gun left handed.

but have you never though altair is an assassin and needs to make kills fast so if he has the sword in his right hand it would get in the way of the hidden blade if it was also on his right hand were this way allows him to fight with sword for example parry an atack while striking with the hidden blade as his left hand is free.

I'm lefty for eating and drawing. Everything else I do with my right hand.

Lefty scissors are the lousiest cutting instruments known to man, so I learned to use my right hand for stuff because things made for leftys never work for me.

...and lefty school desks are the devil...

You lucky lucky people. I'm a very boring righty...
A friend of mine who plays the drums actually became ambidexturous which is amazing. She can for example start writing a sentence with both hands in the middle of the sentence and the write it "to the outside". For example if she wants to write "the cat is under the table", she'll start writing the "u" with her left hand and the "n" with her right hand and then the "s" with her left hand and the "d" with her right hand and so on at the same time! It looks quite cool when she does that on the blackboard. She doesn't even need to think about it!
I wish I could do that...

dont worry, see like kaxen6 said, the whole world is built for righty's(doorknobs,computer mouse, scissors http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif) and so lots of our "leftyness" (i know i totally made that word up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) gets lost anyway. Altough lots of leftys are also artists.

I cut meat and play guitar lefty.

Or... I would, if I knew how to play guitar. The first problem being that when I pick one up, what feels natural is to hold it "the wrong way" according to whoever's looking at me.

if your holding it lefty technicaly you need the strings reversing and that is probly something that would stop you playing as you would have to do everything in reverse.

Meat...Flesh...


It's the same word for both of them in Spanish, so if you translate it, it becomes quite "Dextrous" if you know what I mean.

Right-handed. The only thing I do even remotely related to left-handedness is that I'm goofy-footed.

@kew: lol (I think)

@Tela: I said yet because you never know what may happen in the future. My friend asked me just the other day, out of nowhere, "If you, me, and 1 other person ended up in a plane crash, like in Alive, who would you eat first?"

I have some weird friends. And this is the *sole* reason that I say Yet.

Though, I am curious to know if we taste like chickens. And, therefore, if chickens taste like humans. And if clowns taste funny.

@cooldude: What does "goofy-footed" mean? Like, two left feet, as in, you can't dance? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

It's a skate/snow/surfboarding term. If you're "goofy-footed", your right foot is toward the front of the board and your left foot is toward the rear. If you're "regular-footed", your right foot is toward the rear and your left toward the front.

I remember when I was a child before I knew what being left or right handed was. When I was asked which I was I would always say "I use both hands!", then they'd be like "No, which hand do you write with?" and I'd be all like "This one!" *hold up left hand* http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Then they'd be like "You are left handed then.", then I would wonder how I'm left handed if I have both hands, but not say it out loud because I wanted to move on with my life http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Happened quite alot. Took a while for me to learn http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Actually you can play it "the wrong way". You just need to tune it the other way round. It's very easy actually! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif (and if you're one of those guitar players that don't know how to change their guitar strings; this is an excellent opportunity for you to learn). For electric guitars you can always get a "lefty" model. Fender makes some.

I do everything the way I was taught. When I was smaller when my parents were teaching me to write I picked the pencil up with my left hand and never used my right. Mean while I do everything else with my write. Theres a few things I can do with both. Bowling for example. I'm hardly a good bowler but one day I got 3 strikes with my left and they switched hands and got 2. They were pure fluke but I still did it. Playing guitar, the only guitars in the house were right handed. But one time when I was younger I shattered one of my knuckles on my left hand and was forced to write with my right. The teacher said she didn't see a difference.
