The BBC News reports that it seems that connections between the left and right sides of the brain are faster in lefties and that makes them more efficient when dealing with multiple stimuli. Which at last provides an excuse for me as to why my wife thrashes me in every video game we have ever played!  We don't play violent games so it is even more embarrassing for something soft and fuzzy to destroy me.
