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.
