I have read great men such as Leonardo da Vinci can paint with both of his hands.

I don't know where you are reading this bs, but Leonardo da Vinci has been dead for a long time & is not able to paint at all.

Heh. The spiral stair cases in European castles generally have as much room as a closet. Japanese castles don't really have the tower style architecture that uses the spiral.

The point, however, is that everyone in Japan trained and fought right handed, regardless of dominance. It would be better to die fighting right handed than be seen as left handed, anyway. A fighter must draw right handed, in any case. It would be simply shameful to holster the sword on the right hip. Samurai fashion was serious business.



I apologise, Baavgai. I improperly referred to you as:

Quote

resident super-ninja, probably capable of writing an OS with one hand, while blindfolded, in an afternoon, without ever compiling anything until the very end
here.

Interesting that I spoke of handedness, now we know that if you were to perform such a feat, it would be with the right hand.

You owe me a new monitor as I have spit water all over mine after reading this. I expect payment in full by the end of the month.

I'm fully ambidextrous. I was forced to be right handed in school because it was odd to be a leftie, so of course I spitefully wrote with both hands and had two copies of everything.

There is that always interesting point of the dominant lobe in relation to handedness. I can learn next to any instrument, I paint and draw, and do almost anything within the creative realm. Flip that, I'm a programmer and a mathematician that derives logic from anything I can imagine. I think equally on both plains, which makes for some interesting inventions at times.

I quite honestly don't see a need for distinction there. I combine my skills in ways they can be most efficient.
