Well, as long as she's writing the same thing, that's useful. Otherwise, maybe not so much.

Impressive, though!

I'm a lefty too. Nobody ever tried to make me a righty.

And like most presidents would only read about half of what passed across her desk.

writing same thing with both hands, easy. Writing different things with each hand at same time...many levels of difficulty harder.
Link Posted: 12/29/2012 3:09:19 PM EDT
Can she do numbers on one hand and letters with the other at the same time?

Especially in different languages.

Disclaimer: I have shit handwriting



I used to wow my friends with that trick in junior high. I am a righty and cannot write well at all left handed, but if I do it with both hands simultaneously, I do pretty well.

So, I point out to her that it doesn't matter that she can sign her name with either hand, it still takes just as long. She corrected me, she can sign her name with both hands at the same time, then demonstrated it.

My kid sister is ambidextrous, so the concept isn't foreign to me, but writing with both hands at once? That just amazes me. I guess it could help in college, imagine the notes she could take.


She's got my vote. She'd be a big improvement on our current POTUS even if she signed her name "X" with just one hand.

Never had anyone force me to be a righty. I did have one firearm instructor who "thought" I would have an advantage shooting right handed.
Link Posted: 12/29/2012 3:26:01 PM EDT
I know how that feels. Same thing throughout my childhood where people taught me right-handed since it's the only way they know. I ended up being a left-handed second baseman that would bat right-handed only. It defied all baseball logic but I was good at fielding so it was fine...lol

I hated those desks in school that are curved to give support to people's right arms while I had to try and force my arm on the small desk and take up writing space or have it in the air while sucked during essays since I'd get tired trying to explain my conservative answer to a liberal teacher.

I had an army roommate who could do that.

He could also sign his name upside down, which he did to drive the CQ nuts when he was on restriction and had to sign in every hour.

He would walk into the orderly room and sign his name without turning the paper around and walk out without saying a word.

I think he also had to empty the shitcans.

Depending on what she'd sign, I just might vote for her.
Link Posted: 12/29/2012 4:36:42 PM EDT
I can too, so long as I'm writing the same thing.

I can even write upside down and backwards so the person facing me can read what I'm writing with no problems. You learn that stuff in civil service.
Link Posted: 12/29/2012 4:36:46 PM EDT
I've tried writing with both hands at the same time and my left hand writes mirrored.

When I was little, my mom fired a babysitter for trying to make me left handed

Way cool OP. Are both signatures the same neatness??

I'm impressed.

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous!

I got my left smacked by a ruler everytime I would pick up the pencil with my left. Same crap from my babysitter.

There's a guy who writes with his hands and feet all at the same time in 4 different languages. The shit you think of when you live in a 3rd world country.

I'll be the first to admit she's got more talent in that department that me.

yep, sort of defeats the purpose.

The fact that she's even literate speaks highly for her.

"I guess it could help in college, imagine the notes she could take."

Imagine if college will still be worth it when she gets to that age. By the way, interesting skill.

I know a guy who can write his fist name with the left hand and his last name with the right at the same time.

President Garfield used to do that.

An old friend of mine stood behind one of these for six years writing backwards. He said he had to learn to do it automatically without thinking about it, and showed me by quickly writing backwards on paper as I threw stuff out to him.

One of our early presidents could simultaneously write greek with one hand and latin with the other.

This is how I ended up cross-dominant.

I used to be pretty much ambidextrous; not so much after shattering my left wrist though. I can't write different things at the same time, but I can write with either hand and I usually played sports left handed. I used to shoot skeet and pool left handed until the money came out then switch to right handed. I think part of it is because my dad is left handed and wanted us to be able to use either hand and also because I took piano lessons for years.

Get two pistols in her hands and see if she can shoot with any degree of accuracy.

my dad tells stories of how the nuns used to hit his left hand with rulers when he was writing to get him to change.
