Enjoy your blissful ignorance, righties. WHILE YOU CAN.

TODAY IS LEFT-Handers’ Day. In honour of this momentous occasion, we present this tribute to the struggle of left-handed people everywhere.

FIGHT ON, BROTHERS AND SISTERS. FIGHT ON.

6. Kettles that only have the little window on one side

So ONLY RIGHT HANDED PEOPLE KNOW HOW MUCH WATER THERE IS.

10. Playing cards
