Left Handed Men and Income (left hand alert)

Just one more reason out of sooooo many that any single women that happen to read this blog should seriously think about dating me.

Higher paychecks: a left-handed compliment?

Left-handed men with at least some college education earned 15 percent more than similarly educated right-handers, while those who finished college earned about 26 percent more, wrote Christopher S. Ruebeck of Lafayette College, and Joseph Harrington and Robert Moffitt of Johns Hopkins University in a paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

So I earn about 26 percent more income... and I look like Jacques Offenbach. What more could a woman want??

Unfortunately for any left handed women reading this posting, it seems like the left handed and income effect doesn't apply to women. It might have something to do with that extra set of chromosomes that women have.
