Wrote the following:
|From birth, I've been afflicted with a small genetic abnormality and
|wondered if any other SED'ers suffered from the same problem?.
|The condition doesn't normally give me undue day to day problems but I find
|some physical dificulty when trying to use PC's and some electronic test
| I wouldn't normally bother to mention my 'affliction' but through my
|incapacity I've just had a demolition drill try to wrench my arm out of it's
|socket. I've been told by researchers that I'm liable to have a shorter
|lifespan than others, (power tools are probably a good reason!) and
|statistically am more liable to suffer mental problems (my family probably
|fully agree with this bit ;-).
| Remarkably, the abnormality does though bring with it some strange
|positive benefits and I wondered if a predisposition to
|electronics/technical, is one of them?.
|Any other left handers out there?
Look on the positive side, there's statistics supporting that lefties
have higher IQ's ;-)

I love to cook with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
