    It's a well known and medically proven fact that only us "Left Handers" are in our "right minds". LOL {and yes I am a Lefty. }

    Chinese Man Opens Shop for Left-Handers

    BEIJING (AP) -- In a communist country being overrun by capitalism, Ma Bo may be the most enthusiastic leftist of them all.

    Ma, 56, an entrepreneur in the northeastern Chinese city of Dalian, has opened what the official Xinhua News Agency bills as the country's first shop for left-handed people.

    "I just want to help the lefties with these special daily-use products, so they can lead an easier and more convenient life," Ma was quoted Wednesday as saying.

    He also operates a Web site for the same purpose - with the slogan "Left is Best." It "promotes understanding about problems concerning the left-handed," Xinhua said.

    Ma's shop features myriad accessories for left-handers, from scissors to can openers. It's no small affair in a society where people who use their left hands are often scorned.

    "I'm delighted to see that business people are beginning to show an interest in left-handed products," said Zhang Heng, a Beijing left-hander.

    Ma's only apparent problem? He can't try out his products before he sells them.

    He's right-handed.

    My wife and son are both left handed. They are always saying that they are in their right minds..... :P
