Well, that's nice.

According to various scientific papers, as a left-hander I "can think more quickly when it comes to tasks such as playing computer games or playing sports."

The downside is that I'm a bit more likely to go psychotic while doing so than the slower righties.

Grr.

Of course, buried near the end of the article is the usual disclaimer:

The study leader, Dr. Clyde Francks, said in a statement, “People really should not be concerned by this result. There are many factors which make individuals more likely to develop schizophrenia and the vast majority of left-handers will never develop a problem. We don’t yet know the precise role of this gene.”

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
