    I wonder how inconvenient it is to be left-handed

    The only two instances I can think of it being is when you’re writing with a feather pen and when using scissors, but is there anything else?

    • Note pads are for right handed people. 
    • A lot of tools are for right handed people, although a lot of tools are being made to be neutral. 
    • Playing instruments
    • Cameras. 

    These  are just guesses though

    how so?

    The note pad thing was from that episode of the Simpson’s where Ned opens a Left handed store. It was something to do with not being able to write all the way to the edge. 

    Some instruments, like a guitar, are designed to have the dominant hand control the fretboard. And they’re set up as such. You can get left handed instruments now, but I do recall Jimi Hendrix having to reverse the strings on his guitar. 

    the notepad thing… doesn’t it just depend on the page you’re writing on?

    and can’t you just hold the guitar the other way around?

    I’m not exactly sure as I’m not left handed, but it’s something to do with the way the strings are set up, they’re asymmetrical. You have to switch them over if you want to play. 

    I think a left handed guitarist should fully answer though. 


    Mount Nyiragongo | Democratic Republic of Congo

    "Mount Nyiragongo is a stratovolcano in the Virunga Mountains associated with the Albertine Rift. It is located inside Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, about 20 km north of the town of Goma and Lake Kivu and just west of the border with Rwanda. The main crater is about two km wide and usually contains a lava lake. The crater presently has two distinct cooled lava benches within the crater walls - one at about 3175m (10,400 ft) and a lower one at about 2975 m (9800 ft). Nyiragongo’s lava lake has at times been the most voluminous known lava lake in recent history. The depth of the lava lake varies considerably. A maximum elevation of the lava lake was recorded at about 3250 m (10,700 ft) prior to the January 1977 eruption - a lake depth of about 600 m (2000 ft). A recent very low elevation of the lava lake was recorded at about 2700 m (8800 ft). Nyiragongo and nearby Nyamuragira are together responsible for 40% of Africa’s historical volcanic eruptions."
