More lefty stuff

From the Left-Hander's Calendar

" Never bend your head. Hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye."- Helen Keller

Name that Lefty
Q: This lefty artist, philosopher, and mathematician was a man ahead of his time. Not only did he conceive of a flying machine with flapping wings, he also sketched the design for a telescope one hundred years before it was invented.  Can you name him? Answer below.

Sinistral SIG is a high IQ society open to left hand people requiring members to be left handed and have IQ in the top 2 percent.  Apparently it is either defunct or they can't figure out how to start a website-- I couldn't find one, but I did find the address.

More inspiration: "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
- Winston Churchill

And just for the fun of it, Lefty Birthdays:

May 12 : Yogi Berra, Bruce Boxleitner, Mike Weir, Lou Whitaker
May 20: George Gobel, Bronson Pinchot, Ron Reagan Jr., David Lee Wells
June 1: Morgan Freeman, Cleavon Little, Marilyn Monroe

Answer: Leonardo da Vinci
