I recall a T-Shirt: "Everyone is born left-handed. You turn right-handed when you commit your first sin." :-)

how do you say left handed?

smolan / smolanim are left wing, not left hand.

Smoli/smolit -- שמאלי/שמאלית

I've seen both "ימיניים" and "ימניים" for right-handed (m.pl.), and I was wondering: is there any difference between the 2 (aside from "ימיניים" also being the word for just "right" [m.pl.] [as in the directional adjective])?
