And at least 2 of us left-handed and named John

It is my belief that 99% of the population that is left-handed, end up being very intelligent. The reason for this is due to the fact that we have to survive in a right-handed world. Everything is made for righties. Us left-handers have to adapt, conform, and alter what would be normal to us, just to be able to do such simple tasks.

Left handed. My daughter is also left handed and my son is right handed, so my genetic experiment indicates there is no correlation to the parents' genetic tendencies.

I am a male righty.

married to a non engineer converted lefty.

have a daughter with all kinds of scientific degrees who is a lefty.

I believe you should also collect male vs female data in the righty/lefty score. also could ask Mensa if they have lefty/righty data. another interesting bit of data would be IQ vs lefty/righty for each sex.

interesting project, but I bet you it has been done before.

I think that I am a lefty, as my left works as well as my right, except my handwriting is just a bit different with the left hand. I am quite sure that when I was a child that I displayed left-handed characteristics, and you may have heard the saying "there is no such thing as a left-handed German." So, I was corrected, which may have been a blessing in disquise as I was able to function relatively well during physical rehab on my left arm several years ago, and recently the treatment of my right arm.

So; who knows? I may truely be a lefty in a righty world.

Read some research on this recently, but can't remember where. Children born to women over 40 more likely to be lefties. The older the mother, the more likely the child will be a lefty. Don't know why.

Well, I am ambidextrous by many means, I have always forced myself to do this. I favor my right mostly, and i can no longer write with my left. I will tell you though, most left handed people are exceptional at many things, much like my father. I was told they tend to be very creative. And true, only a short time ago, they were forced to change as a young child. But the great thing about this issue is the effect on the brain. Just being left or right handed must have effects on brain development even as a youngster, somehow, making us different. I worked with doctor David Grand on a project studying brain reaction through tactile stimulation. What they found was that said stimulation increased brain activity, especially creatively. The technique could be used without music, but we created a way to integrate it into music with sound effects. Without music, he could achieve results by only stimulating your hands....

I'm a lefty, and I am led to believe that I'm a fairly talented mechanical designer. Creative, inventive, good problem solver. Adept at reading measuring tools upside-down. Modest too.

From what I recall people use the opposite side of their brain more depending on their 'handedness'...

So right handed people use their left side of their brain more.

Left handed use their right hand side brain more etc...

The left handed side of the brain is supposed to be more tuned to logic perception I think... With the right handed side more to do with creativity, artistic, language...

Or have I got them mixed up??

John. definitely a lefty!!

Interesting factoid - Lenardo Da Vinci was left handed (so was Hitler!) and he was born on my birthday exactly 400 years earlier than me!! >>This information may not be correct but its interesting ain't it?<<

I wonder if it was easier for da Vinci to write right to left because he was left handed...

rather than to make it more difficult for others to read it.

Galileo might have thought to use hebrew to conceal his work from the christian menace but for the fact that hebrews were also under the scrutiny of the church's merry band of murderers who made the wonders of inquisitions a thing of beauty wonder if they were properly crooked individuals perhaps attention deficit individuals with hatred for everyone else.

Harder to find a properly warped piece of wood to carve than a strait one.

Chapman: Trouble at mill.
Cleveland: Oh no - what kind of trouble?
Chapman: One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
Cleveland: Pardon?
Chapman: One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
Cleveland: I don't understand what you're saying.
Chapman: [slightly irritatedly and with exaggeratedly clear accent] One of the cross beams has gone out askew on the treadle.
Cleveland: Well what on earth does that mean?
Chapman: *I* don't know - Mr Wentworth just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the mill, that's all - I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

[JARRING CHORD]

[The door flies open and Cardinal Ximinez of Spain [Palin] enters, flanked by two junior cardinals. Cardinal Biggles [Jones] has goggles pushed over his forehead. Cardinal Fang [Gilliam] is just Cardinal Fang]

Ximinez: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.

[The Inquisition exits]

Chapman: I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

[JARRING CHORD]

[The cardinals burst in]

Ximinez: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope, and nice red uniforms - Oh damn!
[To Cardinal Biggles] I can't say it - you'll have to say it.
Biggles: What?
Ximinez: You'll have to say the bit about 'Our chief weapons are ...'
Biggles: [rather horrified]: I couldn't do that...

[Ximinez bundles the cardinals outside again]

Chapman: I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

[JARRING CHORD]

[The cardinals enter]

Biggles: Er.... Nobody...um....
Ximinez: Expects...
Biggles: Expects... Nobody expects the...um...the Spanish...um...
Ximinez: Inquisition.
Biggles: I know, I know! Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. In fact, those who do expect -
Ximinez: Our chief weapons are...
Biggles: Our chief weapons are...um...er...
Ximinez: Surprise...
Biggles: Surprise and --
Ximinez: Okay, stop. Stop. Stop there - stop there. Stop. Phew! Ah! ... our chief weapons are surprise...blah blah blah. Cardinal, read the charges.
Fang: You are hereby charged that you did on diverse dates commit heresy against the Holy Church. 'My old man said follow the--'
Biggles: That's enough.
[To Cleveland] Now, how do you plead?
Clevelnd: We're innocent.
Ximinez: Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

[DIABOLICAL LAUGHTER]

Biggles: We'll soon change your mind about that!

[DIABOLICAL ACTING]

Ximinez: Fear, surprise, and a most ruthless-- [controls himself with a supreme effort] Ooooh! Now, Cardinal -- the rack!

[Biggles produces a plastic-coated dish-drying rack. Ximinez looks at it and clenches his teeth in an effort not to lose control. He hums heavily to cover his anger]

Ximinez: You....Right! Tie her down.

[Fang and Biggles make a pathetic attempt to tie her on to the drying rack]

Ximinez:Right! How do you plead?
Clevelnd: Innocent.
Ximinez: Ha! Right! Cardinal, give the rack [oh dear] give the rack a turn.

[Biggles stands their awkwardly and shrugs his shoulders]

Biggles: I....
Ximinez: [gritting his teeth] I *know*, I know you can't. I didn't want to say anything. I just wanted to try and ignore your crass mistake.
Biggles: I...
Ximinez: It makes it all seem so stupid.
Biggles: Shall I...?
Ximinez: No, just pretend for God's sake. Ha! Ha! Ha!

[Biggles turns an imaginary handle on the side of the dish-rack]

[Cut to them torturing a dear old lady, Marjorie Wilde]

Ximinez: Now, old woman -- you are accused of heresy on three counts -- heresy by thought, heresy by word, heresy by deed, and heresy by action -- *four* counts. Do you confess?
Wilde: I don't understand what I'm accused of.
Ximinez: Ha! Then we'll make you understand! Biggles! Fetch...THE CUSHIONS!

[JARRING CHORD]

[Biggles holds out two ordinary modern household cushions]

Biggles: Here they are, lord.
Ximinez: Now, old lady -- you have one last chance. Confess the heinous sin of heresy, reject the works of the ungodly -- *two* last chances. And you shall be free -- *three* last chances. You have three last chances, the nature of which I have divulged in my previous utterance.
Wilde: I don't know what you're talking about.
Ximinez: Right! If that's the way you want it -- Cardinal! Poke her with the soft cushions!

[Biggles carries out this rather pathetic torture]

Ximinez: Confess! Confess! Confess!
Biggles: It doesn't seem to be hurting her, lord.
Ximinez: Have you got all the stuffing up one end?
Biggles: Yes, lord.
Ximinez [angrily hurling away the cushions]: Hm! She is made of harder stuff! Cardinal Fang! Fetch...THE COMFY CHAIR!

[JARRING CHORD]

[Zoom into Fang's horrified face]

Fang [terrified]: The...Comfy Chair?

[Biggles pushes in a comfy chair -- a really plush one]

Ximinez: So you think you are strong because you can survive the soft cushions. Well, we shall see. Biggles! Put her in the Comfy Chair!

[They roughly push her into the Comfy Chair]

Ximinez [with a cruel leer]: Now -- you will stay in the Comfy Chair until lunch time, with only a cup of coffee at eleven. [aside, to Biggles] Is that really all it is?
Biggles: Yes, lord.
Ximinez: I see. I suppose we make it worse by shouting a lot, do we? Confess, woman. Confess! Confess! Confess! Confess
Biggles: I confess!
Ximinez: Not you!

I get the impression that if you were to use proper punctuation, your text just MIGHT make some sense. At least please use a period at the end of each sentence!!!

More Idle speculation

Hebrew is written write to left Arabic left to write other advanced ancient culture's I a little ignorant about at this time. Like maybe Mayan I have no idea how thoughts are written down, left, right, or up I don't know. I think Leonardo knew Hebrew it makes sense why or how is to me unimportant because you say he wrote right to left. That necessity is the mother of idea should also lead us to stipulate that some great minds are born into persecution and I think the greatest would have to be of unjustified persecution because criminals usually have modus operandi.

If all tools were developed to use with predominately a left handed group of people left handed people would think predominantly with there left brain hemisphere because thats a trait we humans have. Learn to shoot dart as a predominantly right handed person of necessity because they are predominantly right handed tools. I myself can hit 15 and 16 better with my left and 18 and 19 better with my right. Bullseye I shoot about eqaully well though I'm not going to enter any competitions to prove my skill; I can shoot darts decently and anyone who shoots predominantly left or right will in the short term be more successful. I might show someone up with practise and talent is talent. Tools and handedness teach someone to use a handed tool give them one for the other and to use it they have to unlearn to use it; perhaps I mean not think and use it till that hand operates the tool properly and experience to use it productively. Think about it to be left handed in a right handed world means the more creative by necessity side of you mind needs functioning to merely get by. What a bunch of hogwash people buy into.

Where do you come from?

What do you think 'darts' are???

...'Darts' in the UK are small pointed projectiles thrown by hand at a dart board in pubs.....and are not 'handed' ...so I don't understand your post!

It is believed that 'darts' originated from medieval archers throwing arrows.

Try it. Then give a more qualified comment and darts are in my mind a perfect example and because I'm not talking out my, well never mind. Your right darts are not handed but people decidedly are and thats how I'm going to put it because thats what people such as everyone who have commented to state there handedness do. I stated no such thing as to my handedness I have difficulties unthinking and learning task with a different hand and arm; many skills require people less decidely handed and I personally feel being handed is a handicap people afford themselves due to laziness or lack of interest in personal improvement. You train that can't.

I'm not trying to argue...just trying to decipher your meaning.

If you mean that learning to use either hand (or foot) is a good thing then I agree.

I'm not much good at football (soccer) but as a kid I practiced all one summer using my (wrong) left foot...It made me a better player and improved my general coordination.

I have even wondered if practicing hitting golf shots with a left handed club would improve my right handed game.

I asked where you are from as I can only assume that English is not your first language, because I have difficulty understanding your posts.

I feel I have an interesting understanding of my primary language some its due to studiing french in school and some is due to an early interest in reading and primarily a good foundation of classic literature. Some tell me the only thing worse than not understanding what I say is to do so. I don't have a problem with that advantage.

If you did us all the courtesy of filling in some detail in your personal profile I would be more sympathetic towards your quirky use of language.

Your writing gives the impression that you believe you are doing me a favour by communicating.

The converse is true... At least I have taken the trouble to give some insight as to who I am, and my location....despite hiding behind the alter-ego of a cat...I do actually reveal all.

'Some tell me the only thing worse than not understanding what I say is to do so. I don't have a problem with that advantage.'

Were this attitude enhanced with some wit, I might take the time to persevere, but alas, I merely find it irritating.

Handedness, how many lefties are out there who refuse to learn to operate some handedness handicap device for right handicaps a good tools operates correctly either time. Handedness a acceptable handicaps governed entirely by the prevalent stupidity similar to usable level of intelligence anything above commonplace is somehow anti-social and the general populace will discourage or penalize the offending individuals. I have good mechanical skill and write terribly with my left.

Being a right hander, I must correct you on your statement "a good tools operates correctly either time!" Not correct! good quality scissors have a bias on the handles so that when you close them with your right hand, the 2 blades are pushed together to create a shear! If used in the left hand, the blades are forced apart and do not create the shear! My uncle was the last handmade scissor manufacturer in Sheffield, the home of stainless steel! He made quality scissors for the Queen and knows his scissors!!

Talk about shear nonsense. I have tin shears that work better than any common aviator snips which are handed and my snips I can them snips, the larger type work more better still and in either hand. Einstein

Cooper an American tool company makes great metal cutting tools probably better than mine, I want some duck bill ones a mentally challenged employer destroyed my last duckbills cutting some trash to save his own junk the wear and tear. I would have made him eat them had I only known he had done it at the time. I call them duckbills they cut left or right turn cuts and fairly heavy stock too. Tin snips in good condition will cut paper maybe you need some, Truman. Send a pair to Merry old England maybe it'll help your Uncle out.

Talk about Shear nonsense. Scissor madness, Tin Snips are similar and work fine either hand providing they aren't the aviator type.

Einstein send a pair of american made cooper snip for left and right angle cut in good condition see if he can figure out the bizarre concept of larger metal cutting scissors machine ground for either hand that work.

A little test for your club like left hand! get old loose scissors and in your right hand cut some paper! Easy! Change to your left hand and without contorting your hand, cut the paper again! It seems to slip between the two blades! It´s amazing, they don't cut and that is because, your hand does not create the shear pressure! Case closed! At least you seem to cut metal sheet with gilbos and not scissors! As a note of interest, my sister is a lefty and not at all interested in cutting metal or welding widgets!

Romans invented the concept of a fire department, particularly the bucket-brigade. They also spread Western Civilization (I use the term loosely) from Persia to the British Isles.

Rome also perfected irrigation and public waterworks. Aqueducts and lead plumbing (lead's symbol, Pb, derives from the latin Plumbum). A bit of trivia: The spacing of modern railroad rails, for example, is the same as that of Roman chariots.

The influence of Ancient Rome on civilization simply cannot be underestimated.

Now I'm out on a prowl, bored, hungry, and nothing on-sight.

That is a true thang!

Tin snips might be different. They're thicker and more powerfully joined. It's kind of hard to force the blades of good tin snips either right or left.

1.4 Remote Assistance/NetMeeting. The Software contains Remote Assistance and NetMeeting technologies that enable the Software or applications installed on the Workstation Computer (sometimes referred to as a host device) to be accessed remotely from other Devices. When you are using Remote Assistance or Web Meeting (or other software which provides similar functionality for a similar purpose) you may share your session with other users without any limit on the number of Device connections and without acquiring additional licenses for the Software. For We and non-We applications, you should consult the license agreement accompanying the applicable software or contact the applicable licensor to determine whether use of the software with Remote Assistance or Web Meeting is permitted without an additional license. As used above, a session means the experience delivered by the Software similar to when a user is using the input, output and display peripherals attached to the Workstation Computer.

1.5 Storage/Network Use. You may also store or install a copy of the Software on a storage device, such as a network server, used only to install or run the Software on your other Workstation Computers over an internal network; however, you must acquire and dedicate an additional license for each separate Workstation Computer on or from which the Software is installed, used, accessed, displayed or run. Except as otherwise permitted by the NetMeeting and Remote Assistance features described above, a license for the Software may not be shared or used concurrently on different Workstation Computers.

2. DESCRIPTION OF OTHER RIGHTS AND LIMITATIONS

2.1 Digital Rights Management. Content providers are using the digital rights management technology contained in this Software ("DRM") to protect the integrity of their content ( "Secure Content") so that their intellectual property, including copyright, in such content is not misappropriated. Portions of this Software and third party applications such as media players use DRM to play Secure Content ("DRM Software"). If the DRM Software's security has been compromised, owners of Secure Content ("Secure Content Owners") may request that We revoke the DRM Software's right to copy, display and/or play Secure Content. Revocation does not alter the DRM Software's ability to play unprotected content. A list of revoked DRM Software is sent to your computer whenever you download a license for Secure Content from the Internet. You therefore agree that We may, in conjunction with such license, also download revocation lists onto your computer on behalf of Secure Content Owners. We will not retrieve any personally identifiable information, or any other information, from your computer by downloading such revocation lists. Secure Content Owners may also require you to upgrade some of the DRM components in this Software ("DRM Upgrades") before accessing their content. When you attempt to play such content, We DRM Software will notify you that a DRM Upgrade is required and then ask for your consent before the DRM Upgrade is downloaded. Third party DRM Software may do the same. If you decline the upgrade, you will not be able to access content that requires the DRM Upgrade; however, you will still be able to access unprotected content and Secure Content that does not require the upgrade.

2.2 The Software Development Kit ("WMFSDK"). This EULA does not grant you any rights to use the WMFSDK components contained in the Software to develop a software application that uses Windows Media technology. If you wish to use the WMFSDK to develop such an application, visit http://msdn.We.com/workshop/imedia/windowsmedia /sdk/wmsdk.asp, accept a separate license for the WMFSDK, download the appropriate WMFSDK, and install it on your system.

2.3 Internet-Based Services Components. The Software contains components that enable and facilitate the use of certain Internet-based services. You acknowledge and agree that We may automatically check the version of the Software and/or its components that you are utilizing and may provide upgrades or fixes to the Software that will be automatically downloaded to your Workstation Computer.

2.4 Internet Gaming/Update Features. If you choose to utilize the Internet gaming or update features within the Software, it is necessary to use certain computer system, hardware, and software information to implement the features. By using these features, you explicitly authorize We or its designated agent to access and utilize the necessary information for Internet gaming and/or updating purposes. We may use this information solely to improve our software or to provide customized services or technologies to you. We may disclose this information to others, but not in a form that personally identifies you.

3. RESERVATION OF RIGHTS AND OWNERSHIP. We reserves all rights not expressly granted to you in this EULA. The Software is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and treaties. We or its suppliers own the title, copyright, and other intellectual property rights in the Software. The Software is licensed, not sold.

6. CONSENT TO USE OF DATA. You agree that We and its affiliates may collect and use technical information gathered as part of the product support services provided to you, if any, related to the Software. We may use this information solely to improve our products or to provide customized services or technologies to you and will not disclose this information in a form that personally identifies you.

7. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY SITES. You may link to third party sites through the use of the Software. The third party sites are not under the control of We, and We is not responsible for the contents of any third party sites, any links contained in third party sites, or any changes or updates to third party sites. We is not responsible for webcasting or any other form of transmission received from any third party sites. We is providing these links to third party sites to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply an endorsement by We of the third party site.

8. ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE/SERVICES. This EULA applies to updates, supplements, add-on components, or Internet-based services components, of the Software that We may provide to you or make available to you after the date you obtain your initial copy of the Software, unless we provide other terms along with the update, supplement, add-on component, or Internet-based services component. We reserves the right to discontinue any Internet-based services provided to you or made available to you through the use of the Software.

9. UPGRADES. To use Software identified as an upgrade, you must first be licensed for the software identified by We as eligible for the upgrade. After upgrading, you may no longer use the software that formed the basis for your upgrade eligibility.

10. NOT FOR RESALE SOFTWARE. Software identified as "Not For Resale" or "NFR," may not be sold or otherwise transferred for value, or used for any purpose other than demonstration, test or evaluation.

11. ACADEMIC EDITION SOFTWARE. To use Software identified as "Academic Edition" or "AE," you must be a "Qualified Educational User." For qualification-related questions, please contact the We Sales Information Center/One We Way/Redmond, WA 98052-6399 or the We subsidiary serving your country.

The transfer may not be an indirect transfer, such as a consignment. Prior to the transfer, the end user receiving the Software must agree to all the EULA terms.

14. TERMINATION. Without prejudice to any other rights, We may terminate this EULA if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this EULA. In such event, you must destroy all copies of the Software and all of its component parts.

We warrants that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with the accompanying materials for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of receipt. If an implied warranty or condition is created by your state /jurisdiction and federal or state/provincial law prohibits disclaimer of it, you also have an implied warranty or condition, BUT ONLY AS TO DEFECTS DISCOVERED DURING THE PERIOD OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY (NINETY DAYS). AS TO ANY DEFECTS DISCOVERED AFTER THE NINETY-DAY PERIOD, THERE IS NO WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty or condition lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. Any supplements or updates to the Software, including without limitation, any (if any) service packs or hot fixes provided to you after the expiration of the ninety day Limited Warranty period are not covered by any warranty or condition, express, implied or statutory.

LIMITATION ON REMEDIES; NO CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES. Your exclusive remedy for any breach of this Limited Warranty is as set forth below. Except for any refund elected by We, YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, if the Software does not meet We's Limited Warranty, and, to the maximum extent allowed by applicable law, even if any remedy fails of its essential purpose. The terms of Section 17 ("Exclusion of Incidental, Consequential and Certain Other Damages") are also incorporated into this Limited Warranty. Some states /jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may have other rights which vary from state/jurisdiction to state/jurisdiction. YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. We's and its suppliers' entire liability and your exclusive remedy for any breach of this Limited Warranty or for any other breach of this EULA or for any other liability relating to the Software shall be, at We's option from time to time exercised subject to applicable law, (a) return of the amount paid (if any) for the Software, or (b) repair or replacement of the Software, that does not meet this Limited Warranty and that is returned to We with a copy of your receipt. You will receive the remedy elected by We without charge, except that you are responsible for any expenses you may incur (e.g. cost of shipping the Software to We). This Limited Warranty is void if failure of the Software has resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, abnormal use or a virus. Any replacement Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days, whichever is longer, and We will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide your remedy within a commercially reasonable time of your compliance with We's warranty remedy procedures. Outside the United States or Canada, neither these remedies nor any product support services offered by We are available without proof of purchase from an authorized international source. To exercise your remedy, contact: We, Attn. We Sales Information Center/One We Way/Redmond, WA 98052-6399, or the We subsidiary serving your country.

16. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.

Except for the Limited Warranty and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, We and its suppliers provide the Software and support services (if any) AS IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS, and hereby disclaim all other warranties and conditions, whether express, implied or statutory, including, but not limited to, any (if any) implied warranties, duties or conditions of merchantability, of fitness for a particular purpose, of reliability or availability, of accuracy or completeness of responses, of results, of workmanlike effort, of lack of viruses, and of lack of negligence, all with regard to the Software, and the provision of or failure to provide support or other services, information, software, and related content through the Software or otherwise arising out of the use of the Software.

The following WE GUARANTEE applies to you if you acquired this Software in any other country: Statutory rights not affected - The following guarantee is not restricted to any territory and does not affect any statutory rights that you may have from your reseller or from We if you acquired the Software directly from We. If you acquired the Software or any support services in Australia, New Zealand or Malaysia, please see the "Consumer rights" section below.

The guarantee - The Software is designed and offered as a general-purpose software, not for any user's particular purpose. You accept that no Software is error free and you are strongly advised to back-up your files regularly. Provided that you have a valid license, We guarantees that a) for a period of 90 days from the date of receipt of your license to use the Software or the shortest period permitted by applicable law it will perform substantially in accordance with the written materials that accompany the Software; and b) any support services provided by We shall be substantially as described in applicable written materials provided to you by We and We support engineers will use reasonable efforts, care and skill to solve any problem issues. In the event that the Software fails to comply with this guarantee, We will either (a) repair or replace the Software or (b) return the price you paid. This guarantee is void if failure of the Software results from accident, abuse or misapplication. Any replacement Software will be guaranteed for the remainder of the original guarantee period or 30 days, whichever period is longer.

Exclusion of All Other Terms - To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law and subject to the guarantee above, We disclaims all warranties, conditions and other terms, either express or implied (whether by statute, common law, collaterally or otherwise) including but not limited to implied warranties of satisfactory quality and fitness for particular purpose with respect to the Software and the written materials that accompany the Software.

Re: Are you a Lefty or a righty ?

Awesome Yuval!

Masterful use of computer savy (copy and paste).

All I need now is a highlight as to which of those words apply to our guest's complaint that there was a violation of rules in CR4. Since this EULA talks about software, of which there's none, it doesn't apply, right (unless, you consider an image or a whole post as software)?

Then again, copying something from CR4 and pasting it within CR4 can probably be argued as permissible.
