    My brother is about your age, David... and left handed too. Or I should say he WAS left-handed because the teachers "trained" him to be "normal". For all of his life he was somewhat handicapped because of that. He developed few skills with his left hand and lousy skills with his right hand.

    David, I'm 61, but the nuns at the catholic school did their utmost best to "make me normal", to no avail. My father pulled me out and let me attend public school from 5th grade on, but the damage was done.

    David, thanks for the -ol definition. I am originally an organic chemist, and all of the developing agents mentioned have an -OH group. Geez, how dumb of me.

    Utterly strange information here ... I mean the school thing. Never heard of a teacher throwing things at students. How barbaric! Where I went to school it was always the students throwing things at the teacher. The minute the math teacher turned his back, the blackboard was splattered with spitwads. "You knunkleheads, who did that?" He was a horrible math teacher. Good teachers were treated treated respectfully, though some pretty bizarre practical jokes transpired from time to time... and the chemistry lab was indeed blown up by the school dunce randomly pouring concentrated chemicals down the drain (after he grew up he owned his own engineering company, while the school chem whiz ended up as a welfare bum, and the physics whiz kid made millions early on in software design, then spent twenty in prison for income evasion, and now is by far the most informed min wage security guard the Tech Museum has ever employed.

    Statistically, left handed people used to score higher on IQ tests.

    I have heard it posited that this is/was due to the fact that IQ tests tended to measure stubbornness as well as other things.

    There you go again, Steve... and you probably threw "spitwauds" at the "blackbaurd" in School. I'm sure glad Beowulf wasn't a chemist.

    Mees and Sheperd had studied Latin together bat school, before going on to University and the same chemistry course and both joining Wratten & Wainright, and later Kodak.

    So no US input on the Veri part to the name.

    Maybe Connecticut was more progressive in not forcing me to be 'right' handed. But, hopefully, that is not still done. - David Lyga
