In commemoration of left hander’s day, some of the most famous left handed characters





It's Left-Hander's Day, a celebration founded by the Left-Handers club, and currently in its 17th year iteration, here are some tidbits about sinistrality:

Sinistrality is the formal name for left-handedness, based on the Latin word "sinistra," for "on the left." But as time wore on, it accumulated associations with evil that persist today.

About 10% of the world's population is believed to be left-handed, although the number ebbs and flows with time and place.

Among some of the most known left handed characters are Link, who is left-handed except in Skyward Sword and Breath of the Wild; many characters from the Simpsons like Bart Simpson, Seymour Skinner, Ned Flanders, Moe Szyslak and Marge Simpson; Arnold and Helga from hey Arnold, and Coraline who is seen writing with her left hand at the beginning of the film.
