Let me correct that:

(So what if he died in 1961?)


It's also National Dance Day (here in the U.S., though I don't think the government recognizes it).

Looks like Wednesday, July 30th is National Cheesecake Day.

That's "cheesecake" as in the food . . . not pictures and drawings of pretty girls.

A robot would have no need to fan herself since she wouldn't get uncomfortably warm.

Hey, some people feed wild critters "au naturel", but I want long pants on when I feed the raccoons at night. (They sometimes do a little kneading when they're really hungry and I'm slow to get the food to them, but nothing that actually punctures the skin or even the material of my jeans.)

How can you tell a male robot from a female robot (unless you build in certain prominent attributes)?

Then they aren't true right-handers. Why would someone who predominantly uses her/his left hand be considered to be right-handed?

Technically, that person would be cross-dominant.

In all fairness Major, you didn't stipulate someone who had suffered a stroke, as I know you have, or people who have been physically injured, such as former Senator Bob Dole.

Your earlier post was taken as a general question.

I'm sorry if I misunderstood the intent of your query.

Oh, it's not a problem . . . I still identify myself as a righty, but I tend to use my left more (like for driving a car and typing my responses). But I still write / sign with my right hand.

Really?
noun   (plural youths /juːðz/)
1 [in singular] The period between childhood and adult age
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/english/youth
Around the world, the English terms youth, adolescent, teenager, kid, and young person are interchanged, often meaning the same thing, but they are occasionally differentiated. Youth can refer to the entire time of life when one is young, including childhood, but often refers specifically to the time of life that is neither childhood nor adulthood but rather somewhere in between. Youth also identifies a particular mindset of attitude, as in "He is very youthful". For certain uses, such as employment statistics, the term also sometimes refers to individuals from the ages of 14 to 21.

Although linked to biological processes of development and aging, youth is also defined as a social position that reflects the meanings different cultures and societies give to individuals between childhood and adulthood. Scholars argue that age-based definitions have not been consistent across cultures or times and that thus it is more accurate to focus on social processes in the transition to adult independence for defining youth.
"This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease." - Robert Kennedy
Youth is an alternative word for the scientifically-oriented adolescent and the common terms teen and teenager . . .
