Stupid study. What was the point in even starting this study? They knew that even if something was found they couldn't give a reason for it. Waste of time, money and effort.

Pointless study. That's like saying if you're born in march you're going to be gay.

(The article didn't say for sure, but) I don't think the study was done just to isolate cases of brain cancer based on birth month and dexterity. It probably had some other (more important) purpose, then these other trivial items were gleaned from the results set later. That's my guess, anyway.

(BTW, I'm October (mid-fall) and right-handed.)

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.
