Why do people interfere with other people's life's when it does no harm to others?
In Albania, left handedness was a capitol offense until about the late 1950's.
I can recall Christian brothers in primary school telling left handers that they should learn to write with their other hand. It was seen as a bad thing. I recall stories of these Christians trying to physically beat it out of them "for their own good".
I never had to face that kind of BS with my left handedness, but it infuriates me to think some have had that happen to them. It would be justice for some of those people to get the stuffing beat out of them for their aggression and their stupidity but I think that's just a fantasy, it never happens to people like that and I'm not the kind to do something like that either. Perhaps if they could be brought up on charges for assault, that might do.

Maybe try HotSpot ??
I once took a pair of "righty" scissors and swapped the handles, it wasn't perfect but it worked. Now most scissors I come across will work in either hand.
I have to go find it and see what I did to it, I think it's still around but I did that years ago to it. I'll get back to you if you like.
this is dumb ... to tired to shove it through a proxy....
Leonardo Da Vinci was left handed. In those days, writing was done with a quill and an inkwell, and being right handed allowed the ink to dry that your hand left behind on the paper, whereas a left-handed writer would be in the position of smudging the wet ink with his hand as it traversed the page. Most people did not read or write (outside the church) in those days, but Leonardo Da Vinci could and did write, annotating many of his designs with notes. To avoid the wet-ink smudging problem, he simply wrote from right to left, in 'mirror' handwriting.
I always found that fascinating.
Come to think of it I did have some problems with writing in some comp books and loose leaf binders, I had to sort of reach over the rings at the beginning of a line and not have my hand in a position to smudge what I wrote.
I wonder if Arabic writers have that problem in reverse since the language is written from right to left and they would normally write with their right hand.
