To all of the lefty’s out there, are you tired of living in a “right hander’s” world? Well, today is your day! August 13 is designated International Lefthanders Day, according to Lefthanders International.

Here are a few interesting facts about “lefty’s” from Lefthanders International:

  • Left-handers adjust more readily to seeing underwater.
  • Left-handers excel particularly in tennis, baseball, swimming and fencing
  • Left-handers usually reach puberty 4 to 5 months after right-handers
  • 4 of the 5 original designers of the Macintosh computer were left-handed
  • 1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left-handed – 250% more than the normal level.

And, if that hasn’t sparked your interest enough, according to an infographic done by Pleated Jeans, left-handed people are 20 percent more likely to be rich than right-handed people.

To all the "lefty’s" out there, Happy #lefthandersday
