Our drill sarge made all of us throw hand grenades with the right hand, because Heckler, Koch, him and the regulations said so. And yes, one of the left handed guys promptly threw away the safety pin and dropped the grenade. Fortunately it was only a training grenade. And another one managed to throw the training grenade against someone's helmet and then it bounced back right at his feet.
And I will not talk about what happened when we were supposed to throw a grenade into a room and then storm in to finish the job...

"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
Like Mark Wallace I went to a school that tried to make us conform to right handed normality. As a result I
Bat in cricket right handed
bowl (again cricket) left handed
play golf (really badly) right handed
throw with my left hand
write left handed
eat left handed
tennis right handed
use a right handed mouse with my left hand
I really hated that school and have been dexterously confused ever since.
