And, yet, most aircraft are flown left handed.  Go figure!

Practice the skill and maximize the use of your intelligence.  For most of
us, most skills CAN be done other-handed.  (Admittedly, there are a few
people with extreme disabilities in their off hand.)

Though I'm right handed, I computer-mouse left handed so I can keep my right
hand free for hand writing notes.  All you lefties have it easy as most
computers you encounter are set up for YOU - right (off) hand on the mouse
and your left hand free for hand writing.  Enjoy!
