TV/movie meme deflated

The meme has appeared on episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and elsewhere in movies and on TV: the idea that, if you're right-handed, you'll automatically use your right hand to catch/block an object thrown suddenly at you (the reverse supposedly being true for us southpaws).

I stand before you as living proof that this meme is bullshit. I'm left-handed, but I catch baseballs with either hand-- no preference. I also use right-handed scissors, but that's neither here nor there.

Just FYI.

I'll let the ladies guess which hand I wank with*.

*HA!! Trick question! In reality, I was born with a prehensile-- and therefore self-stroking-- penis! I was also blessed with the world's only "opposable" scrotum.
