Nice BBC news item about woman who can write different texts simultaneously with each hand

I wonder if all ambidextrous people have such a latent ability.

And notice something else: she's constantly looking at both texts - reinforcing the view that writing rotated text (like when lefties are forced to emulate the right-hand broad-nib model) is bad for you.

The Lubalin book mentions that he could sign cheques with one hand while sketching thumbnails with the other.

But writing in two different languages: that's serious brain power.

Baden Powell was known for drawing with one hand while colouring with the other. He was quite an accomplished illustrator with line drawing and watercolours.

I can write with one hand, while picking my nose with the other.
That’s about it!

"I wonder if all ambidextrous people have such a latent ability."

I wonder why all people don't realize they each have some such latent ability. If I had not already done so, I'd make this the year of the other hand, just to see what does work.:)

Happy holidays!

C'mon, she's a cyborg.

I totally agree with you. Name of the women is Chen Siyuan from China. She has the amazing the art. i have already listen about this and the detail information is provided by you. I have enjoyed your post especially your way of talking. Anyway, News are the best way to remain updated from worldwide affairs. Due to busy life and shortage of time i always prefer to read News highlights or BBC News Headlines (
