Wow! In news sure to shock, amaze, and excite, a local student and left-hander extraordinaire, Bethany Johnson (19), has just been informed by her friend, Marcus Easterly (20), that he knows someone else who is left-handed.
Who would have believed it? Certainly not us here at The Obiter. What are the odds of two whole left-handed people being linked by a mutual friend? Our team of actuarial science students ran through the odds, and whilst we couldn’t be bothered to unpack their findings, the numbers are something like one in a bajillion.
But in super news, Marcus did more than merely inform Bethany he is aware of the existence of another left-hander. In act of sheer charity and goodwill, he even offered to introduce them to each other.
‘They would have so much to talk about,’ Marcus informed us. ‘Like using left-handed scissors, generally wishing to shake hands left-handed but being struck down by the traditional right-handed handshake system… and I think they both like Rick & Morty, so that could be good for a chat.’
‘The world’s their oyster! Their left-handed oyster!’ he screamed excitedly in the face of a new member of The Obiter subcommittee, who promptly quit in disgust. Thanks Marcus, it’s not like we weren’t super excited to have Kate Miller-Heidke working with us.
Little more to come.
