3. Tom Cruise
There have been negative connotations that are associated with left-handedness throughout history in many different cultures. According to the Collins Dictionary, left-handed has come to mean awkward or clumsy, and an insult or put-down is known as a left-handed compliment. Photo Link
4. Angelina Jolie
In ancient Rome, the word meaning left was sinister, highlighting the less than positive associations the condition has. The Italian words for left and left-handed are mancino and mancini, which translate to defective and deceitful. Photo Link

5. Demi Moore
Lefties in the United States are called southpaws, wrong-way drivers and portsides. The German  word for left is link, which means awkward. The word for right is recht, which means true, good and just.

6. Milla Jovovich
In Japan , there was a time when a wife being left-handed was grounds for a divorce. Today the prejudice against lefties has lessened.

7. Scarlett Johansson
As Wikipedia notes, being a left-hander living in a right-handed world is inconvenient. The design and placement of everyday objects such as ticket dispensers in underground stations, door handles, hot water taps, can openers, pens chained down in banks and post offices, ringbound notebooks and even the printing on promotional pens is created for right-handers.

8. Robert De Niro
Lefties often struggle to use equipment or utensils designed for righties, giving rise to a thriving industry of stuff for lefties. For example , lefties who are serious about playing golf or the guitar have to get specially designed clubs and instruments.

9. Mickey Rourke
Left-handedness is the preference for the left hand over the right for everyday activities such as writing. Seven to ten percent of the adult population is left-handed

10 Things Women Do Better Than Men

Click Here To Join

 

1. We evolve hotter.

A recent study revealed that women are getting better looking through evolution; meanwhile, men are staying the same. After following more than 2,000 people through four decades of life, the study showed that attractive women had 16 percent more children than average-looking chicks and that beautiful people are 36 percent more likely to have a daughter as their firstborn. All those gorgeous daughters mean more beautiful women than in past generations.

While surfing through the web for my today
's post I saw this article on COSMOPOLITAN, found it interesting, so decided to share with you.Tons of recent studies proving that women have some amazing abilities that men lack. We have listed ten of our favorites.

2. We survive car accidents more often.

This is sad but true: Men are 77 percent more likely to die in a car accident than women, according to a study done by Carnegie Mellon University. Our boyfriends should be thanking us when we nag them to
"
Wear your seatbelt!"

3. We're better at seeking comfort.

A Mind survey of 2,000 people revealed that women are far more likely than men to talk through their problems. Fifty-three percent of women talk to their friends about what
's stressing them out, as opposed to 29 percent of men.

4. We're more recession-proof.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 80 percent of those who have lost their jobs since December 2007 have been men. Ouch. This could be because male-dominated fields have been hit the hardest, like manufacturing and finance. That really sucks…but hey, maybe it
's time more men became nurses and educators.

5. We graduate college more often.

We already know that female enrollment is higher than male, but the Department of Education
's statistics reveal that men are also less likely than women to graduate and get their bachelor's degrees. Men are also more likely to take longer than five years to complete their degree.

6. We eat healthier.

A survey of more than 14,000 people, conducted by the University of Minnesota, showed that women choose far healthier foods than men. While men are more likely to chow down on frozen pizza and red meat, women are piling fruits and veggies onto their plates. It all sounds pretty obvious, but we get so much grief for our chocolate addictions that we just had to point this one out!

7. We have stronger immune systems.

No wonder men act like such babies when they have a sniffle — women really do have stronger immune systems than men! If there are little battles going on in our bodies, women have a secret weapon: estrogen. A study done by McGill University indicated that estrogen gives women an edge when it comes to fighting off infections. That
's because estrogen confronts a certain enzyme that often hinders the body's first line of defense against bacteria and viruses.

8. We live longer.

Among the world
's population of those who are over 100 years old, 85 percent are women, according to theNew England Centenarian Study. In general, women continue to live five to 10 years longer than men as well.

9. We're better managers, especially in this economy.

This one is a little controversial, but a slew of experts are confident that women make greater bosses because they are better listeners, mentors, problem solvers, and multitaskers than their male counterparts. In a recent Daily News article, management expert Jay Forte said, 
"
It's a very service-oriented economy [right now], so you need employees to be motivated. Women are better connectors than men and more astute about knowing how to activate passion in their employees."

10. We invest better.

A study of 100,000 portfolios showed that women
's investment returns outperform men's, 18 percent to 11 percent. This could be because women are typically more cautious with their investment decisions and think longer term.
