    Captain and Tenille . . . LOL. Eff that. I would say that I have you pegged as more of a Boy George kind of fella, but that would be rude (even if true). :p

    Anyway, East Coast has always ruled. Public Enemy, Run-DMC, Wu-Tang Clan, and the greatest ever - Biggie. No one needs that imitation sell-out West Coast sheeee it.

    Despite lacking a reinforced point or appearing menacing, this is a serious weapon.
    Weapon approved.

    The only reason I purchased that EDC2 on the exchange recently, was to pick up the left handed @sheathmaker sheath included in the deal.

    On the frame lock - it’s not just lefty’s this would benefit. Many right handed people who carry fire arms regularly like to carry their knife on the left.

    Ugh, dammit, man! I’m not here to have a conversation with you that is even remotely close to an intellectual exchange of ideas that results in personal growth due to shared knowledge between us. I’ m here to give you chit over the fact that your genetic code is so effed up that you are not only funny looking, but left handed too. I’m sorry man, some guys are just born with the deck stacked against them. Others don’t even have it that good, and that same deck is scattered all over the floor in a tragic game of 52 card pick up, that’s where your lot was obviously cast. Them’s the breaks.......

    Now, post that pic of your ugly mug flipping me off again and take the win ..........o_O:)

    Here’s a new one for you... like a fine wine getting better with age.

    For the record - I’m dominant left (write and throw a ball left handed) but mostly ambidextrous. Some things I naturally do right handed (throw a frisbee).

    I'm not right handed, left handed or genuinely ambidextrous. I'm just confused :p

    Born left handed, but my dad was one of the types who thought it was a good idea to force me to switch, so he'd make me switch any time he saw me writing or doodling with my left hand. By the time I was in grade/middle school, unlike some classmates who were genuinely ambi and could write equally well with either hand, my left handed writing was about as awful as any other right handed persons left handed writing lol.

    These days, I'm mostly right dominant (write and throw a ball right handed), but there are several things I do left handed (hence the 'confused'). Eg. I learned to shoot slingshots left handed, and I'm actually pretty darn accurate... BUT I learned archery righthanded. I shoot a bow better righthanded, but can instinctively shoot a slingshot better lefthanded :confused:

    I always shoot long guns righty, but practice ambi for handguns (better with my right).

    Haven't gone snowboarding in years, but used to snowboard goofy. Have no problems switching leads when sparring, but tend to fight Southpaw more often.

    Can't shoot a basketball lefty for crap, but although I'm better with my right, I'm somewhat decent at darts with my left.

    Used to like playing Cricket when we went to any bar with a dart board. When we were playing just for fun, I'd shoot lefty. If someone made a bet, I'd switch to shooting righty. The friends who'd played with me before always found it amusing to watch the reactions of the unsuspecting :D

    I am in a similarly “confused “ situation.
    When I was young I’d use whatever hand was closer to what needed to be done and would write with either hand- atrociously.
    When I was very young I couldn’t remember which side was my right and which was the left, I asked an older boy that lived across the street how he remembered and he asked me “ which hand do you write with “, I told him both. He grabbed my right hand and said “ write with this hand, that’s your right side “. I thought he was a genius at the time and did as I was instructed.
    I play basketball just as well left handed, can throw a baseball only half weirdly left handed, play hockey or bat either way, and golf has to be right handed.
    Can switch back and forth well in a fight but practice mostly right handed.
    Now that my left arm has been wrecked I lean on the right for everything. Turns out the neighbor helped me out more than either of us knew at the time.

    Guys, yes, I am a pancake, and sometimes I am a bit slow on thinking, but why am I a gold member? When I did not bought a good membership?
    I want to say thank you to that person, this means a lot to me. Great act of generosity.

    For the longest time I would get sick if I ate anything during the first two hours after I woke up. So I didn't eat breakfast for years.
