get that stick out of there :)
i didnt see a reference to dyslexia. ?
i saw reference to tools designed by right handed people for use by right
as you are not a lefty you have not a clue what its like to be one.
the life expectency reference is due to the added danger presented to left
handed people all the time by right handed designers.
go operate an electric drill with your left hand.. surprise yourself when
you accidentally eenable the trigger lock button and have to remove your
hand from the drill to be able to push it again to reset it.
I ony guess you misread the guys post as you were not aware of the reality
of the situation.
