The CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos has spent $42 million in order to build a massive clock. This clock is intended to chime every single year, as well as decade, century and millennium for a period of 10,000 years. He’s also got a project called the Blue Origin, which is a company that does space-travel and aims to take astronauts to the International Space Station.
left-handed. Crazy, huh!They normally have higher IQs
It’s been suggested that people who are left-handed are actually more intelligent and better at things like math, logical reasoning and spatial awareness. This has actually been backed up by science. A study at St. Lawrence University found through their research that there are more left-handed people with IQs over 140 (anything over 140 is categorized as a genius) than there are right-handed people. And when you’re looking through history, this kind of makes sense. Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Benjamin Franklin, Bill Gates and Isaac Newton were all lefties.
Left-handed people are born leaders
Although there’s no research into why left-handed people tend to be more inclined to become leaders, we just have to look at past presidents of the US and the Royal Family in the UK. Since 1923, the US has had six left-handed presidents, including Barack Obama, George Bush Snr, Herbert Hoover, Gerald Ford, Bill Clinton and Harry S. Truman. Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Prince William are all lefties
They have a quick temper
Scientists have wondered for decades why this is – and now one paper has the answers. The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease reports that left-handed people have a quicker temper than those who are right-handed because the two hemispheres in their brains interact more with each other. This means that their logical reasoning in the left side of their brain and their emotions in the right side interact more than their right-handed counterparts, meaning they get angry quicker.
It’s been reported that left-handed people can hear changes in sounds more accurately than those who are right-handed. This is because the left and right sides of the brain are wired differently, each side specializing in certain things the other isn’t. The right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, so left-handed people are more connected to the right side of the brain, which specializes in sound changes.
