Are you left handed?

Studies show that lefties have higher IQs, solve problems better and enjoy larger vocabularies than right handed folk.  Here are some famous lefties: Sir Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso.   And interestingly, every American President since 1981, except the current one.  Even President-Elect Obama uses his left hand.

I'm wondering what percentage of lefties are lampwork glass beadmakers too?  I know I find a high percentage in my classes.  Let us know.  Post here and let's see what unscientific numbers we come up with.

By the way, Alan Searleman, the researcher who conducted this study also added that righties have much better memories than their left handed counterparts.  I knew I could blame it on something else other than my age!
