Are You Right-Handed or Left-Handed?

There are many more right-handed persons in the world than there are left-handed persons. I am right-handed and my husband is left-handed. My twin boys are mirror-image twins, so one is right-handed and the other is left-handed. However, they are both pretty much ambidextrous. I read something about this subject, and the article said that as many as nine out of ten people are right-handed and the word "right" supposedly came from a root word meaning strength. Whereas the word "left" came from a root word meaning weak. Not that there is any truth in that as far as my experience goes. It was also said that left-handed persons are statistically more likely to be geniuses. I know for sure that many famous artists and writers were left-handed and also some "famous" persons we all probably have heard of. Gerald Ford, George Bush, John F. Kennedy, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Bill Clinton are all well know-known left-handers. What about you?
