Left Hand Drama

your southpaw must DO an INORDINATE amount of work.
(try tying words like exaggerate, stewardesses and abracadabra)

By comparison, the right hand can type a mere 300 words on its own.
Early typists worked so fast that they often jammed their machines .
To slow them down, in the 1870's popular letters
like A, E, T,I, and N were separated on the keyboard.
Though improved technology negated the need for the
inefficient layout, the QWERTY keyboard stuck.
The solution for solving the imbalance? Type with your toes.
