Are left-handed people smarter?

Yep. According to researcher Alan Searleman, southpaws have higher IQs, solve problems better and enjoy more extensive vocabularies than righties. Lefty cases in point: Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, for starters. Not to mention every U.S. president since 1981, except George Bush.

Take heart, righties: Searleman's study also found that lefties have worse memories than their right-handed peers.


I wouldn't call myself "smarter", but I do see things in a completely different way than most. And I'll go for the vocabulary bit. When I gey annoyed, I start flinging the words around...Babe always says that he can tell how mad I am by counting the syllables in the words I say. LOL

And I completely agree with the memory thing. I know I had a point to go along with it, but I can't remember what it was. ;) ;) Seriously, anyone in the GW thread knows how often I forget to do things *cough* update the RR page or read fanfics *cough* LOL And you would giggle if you saw the "To Do" lists around the house. It's not because I have a lot to do--it's just I won't remember to do any of it.

I think it's totally weird about the presidents...oh well, go Lefties!! :D :D

You know, seeing the world through the eyes of a four year old is an awesome thing.  Take, for example, this:

What do you see? An orange rotting on a tree? Some kind of fruit plant?

You know what Keira saw?

A burger tree. 

I love kids.
