The dominant hand thing is just what you get used to. In the old days,
left-handedness was not allowed - my left handed grandfather had to
learn to write with his right hand. Also, although I am right handed, I
always brush my teeth with my left hand - this is because the cold tap
in my parents house is (as is the standard) on the right side of the
basin. So I grew up driving the tap with my right hand and brushing with
my left - I find it really awkward to swap.
