  3. Beastboy says:

    This is weird but I’m ambidextrous (which means I can use both hands for
    anything) and I wonder how lefties or righties manage to catch a ball when
    you don’t have as much control of both hands

  4. Charlotte Schmitt says:

    But, like, what is the website called? I CAN’T GO ONE MORE DAY WITH
    GRAPHITE HAND!!

  6. Tridon3 says:

    If you are left handed you are right brained. If you are left brained you
    are right handed.

    better self control and left handed people would be more creative.

  7. Erzana Veselaj says:

    goals to become a singer :P

    get that low w/ the media bashing him day and night. 

  13. Dexter Stigebratt says:
