Off-topic: There really are more left-handers

Yes, there are more lefties today.

I saw this in The Daily Telegraph when leaving the UK on Sunday, and it confirmed something that I've noticed and remarked upon many times in the last few years:

There are more left-handers than there used to be. 11% of the population, instead of the 3% that joined the right-handed majority 100 years ago.

Surely something has gone wrong. Perhaps it's all that genetically altered food we eat. But what will we do if the left-handers take over?!? Will we be inundated with Ned Flanders lookalikes? Plagued by "leftoriums" everywhere???

The only thing to do is to force these aberrations back into right-handed mode. I'll start with my left-handed daughter. :-)
