August 13 is Left Handers day, celebrating the 11 percent of the world that uses their left hand for tasks like writing, eating and holding things. From scissors to knives, Left Handers, or Southpaws, are the brunt of jokes all year long for various different things. But this is the day to ignore that, 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.
