I'm right-handed, yet never got on with a right handed guitar. This has always left me puzzled as to why a lefty guitar is considered as such, since the actual work is done with the right hand, which is most people's stronger hand. With the concept if hammer-ons, you don't really need the other hand, yet if I was to only use my left hand, all I'd be limited to open strings.

It's because on guitar you pick with your more dextrous hand, except of course when doing run of the mill strumming.

Any complex strumming or finger picking patterns are learnt faster when you use your dominant hand to do that strumming.

Chord shapes and lead playing are the easier half of guitar playing therefore it's easier to learn those on your less dominant hand.

So perhaps traditional guitar styles (things that suit acoustic guitars) suit the normal way around, whereas stuff like metal (complex fretting but simpler strumming) actually suits playing an opposite handed guitar?

Does anyone else find that if they keep in all of their farts they get some really bad stomach cramps?

Yeah agreed. Just let it out. Fuck everyone. The people who smell my farts don't need to clean the toilet after me so yeah, a minor inconvenience for them.

Yep, and the gas shuffles itself around my guts so it makes really loud noises. Proper farting noises. In a quiet office. :( The only way anyone can tell I'm not actually farting is that I don't lift up my arse to let it out.

I refer to that as "Aslan" being "on the move".

What is it with overly bubbly women who punctuate everything they say by bursting out in laughter?

A comment on a news story about the recently rushed-through anti-terror 'DRIP' bill:
The Athenian lawmaker Solon, decreed it a crime for citizens to shrink from controversy. In other words you had a civic duty to be a whistleblower. What do we have today? Whistleblowers are dismissed from their jobs, threatened with fines and even long custodial sentences for revealing both corporate, financial, governmental and intelligence agency wrongdoing. When citizens are labelled criminals for revealing state criminality, we are a long way down the road to totalitarian government.

Doubt it, she'd just come to view the room. Grated on the senses a bit.
