  1. Some random trivia & some inept attempts at humour, barely coming close to the site missions at all. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:21, 3 April 2016 (UTC)


  1. It's entirely unclear what you think is wrong or funspaceworthy about this - David Gerard (talk) 10:14, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
    The article is 90% jokes about left-handedness. Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 12:37, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
  2. Needs to become a folklore article. Different cultures have generated all sorts of interesting woo about left-handedness, and the article ought to be refocused on that. What's there is a reasonable stub. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 03:26, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
  3. It needs expanded but there's oodles of material. Scientists seem to be trying to work out whether everything in the world is correlated with lefthandedness - is this sensible or madness?[1][2] Skeptoid has a good article.[3] As mentioned, there's a long history of attempts to treat or punish lefties. Also myths about whether southpaws are more creative or die sooner. And apparently lefties are more likely to be paedophiles.[4] Won't somebody think of the children?

  1. Move to funspace. 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 00:03, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
  2. Sure.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 00:26, 3 April 2016 (UTC) 00:26, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
  3. I think so too. Spud (talk) 06:10, 4 June 2016 (UTC)


  1. I'm in two minds. On the one hand prejudice against left-handed people is long over, and therefore we don't need an article. On the other we could use it to show how a prejudice dies out - and so it could be useful. Flannan Isle (talk) 21:57, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
