Monday, August 13, is a great day for a lefty; it’s annual Left Handers Day. From scissors to knives, Left Handers are the brunt of jokes all year long for various different things. But this is the day to ignore that, and bring awareness to all the right handed folk around the globe in celebration of Left Handers Day, after all while right handed people operate in the left side of the brain, left handed people sure the right side. Therefore, only left handed people are in their right mind.
History behind left handers day:
The special day was launched in 1992 by the Left Handers club in the United Kingdom, and it’s the one day out of the year set aside to celebrate the roughly 10 percent of people who are left-handed. Scientists haven’t been able to find a definitive reason for why some people are left-handed, but it is believed to be genetic. In 2013, researchers identified a network of genes that might be related to left-handedness in humans. With only 10 percent of the population being left handed, various items are more expensive than their right handed counterparts. Objects like scissors, knives and even school desks can see a mark up of almost 75 percent more for left handed individuals, while golf clubs see as much as a 200 percent increase dependent on brand.
