Chuck a Lefty

In southern Illinois, we played video trivia for free at the Cellar. Those early days of NTN were sponsored by Foster's Lager, the Australian "oil can" beer. Between rounds in the game, Australian word trivia would pop up. For example, if someone says you're crazy: "You must be troppo!"

As I recall, turning left was listed as "chucking a leftie."

(Confession: The entire Australian lexicon in my head is narrated by Paul Hogan--aka Crocodile Dundee.)

The BBC posted an article yesterday about southpaws having a quicker thought ability. And, true enough, it's taken this slow-witted northpaw more than a day to react.
