They only make up 10 percent of our population but have contributed more than their fair share to our cultural advancement.
That’s just one reason to celebrate the southpaw you love this August 13 -- National Left-Handers Day !
Here's another: They get left out a lot . (Pun totally intended.)
Some famous lefties?
Titans of industry like John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford and Bill Gates. Great scientists like Albert Einstein, Marie Curie and Alan Turing. And don’t forget about astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
Celebrities like Seth Rogen, Lady Gaga, Robert Redford, Angelina Jolie, Jerry Seinfeld, Robert DeNiro and the Beibs are no doubt celebrating Left-Handers’ Day.
If he weren’t fictional, boxer Rocky Balboa would be partying with other lefties. But there are plenty of real lefty athletes, like Babe Ruth, Bill Russell, Wayne Gretzky, Pele, Martina Navratilova, Randy Johnson, Smokin’ Joe Frazier and Phil Mickelson, whose nickname is, of course, Lefty.
What do Herbert Hoover, Harry S. Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have in common? They’re all left-handed Presidents of the United States . James Garfield, who is buried in Cleveland, was said to be able to write ambidextrously in two dead languages!
Fun fact: Republicans hold a 6-3 advantage to their lefty White House counterparts.
Tons of musicians have played left-handed too. Like Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Iggy Pop, Babyface, Ginger Fish, Bobby Womack and Phil Collins.
