Ok boys and girls,

as I was getting on with my daily chores yesterday,

clipping a bit of cable around some woodwork down a cellar stairway,

making its way toward the CU in the cellar.

I reached one of them tricky corners where you just couldn't get a decent swing of the hammer with your normal "Hammer hand"....

sort of thing where needed to be either;

1/ standing upside down on the ceiling:(

or

2/ left-handed!!! :_|

it just got me wondering... what is the left / right balance amongst us sparks / trainees / vets / others, here in forum land???

so, can you successfully swing your hammer in an accurate manner with...

Left / Right / OR BOTH!? ?:| or as posh people say... ambidextrous?

{you never know... this could be the answer to the credit crunch!:pBlushing:D}

I'm ambidextrous with all my tools, I find that it comes in dead handy for these exact reasons.

Unsure how this could be the answer to the credit crunch? Use both hands - get twice as much done?

Lefties are more likely to:

  • Be convicted of murder
  • Suffer mental illness
  • Be arty
  • Have a shorter life expectancy
  • Suffer autism

I'm 'very right handed' according to my gf's psychologist father :D

Vets have the highest suicide rate of any profession.

Does that mean that sparkies are the biggest threat to everyone else and vets are the biggest threat to themselves?

:eek:
