Important scientific research (my own)

Much time and money seems to be spent by worthy scientists, isolated from reality in their laboratories, discovering things most of us already know. Well, here's one of my own, and it took no time at all, and I won't be charging for it. Are you ready? Ok. Here goes.

The reason most men wear their hair parted on the left is because most women are right-handed. And when these men were small, their right-handed mothers stood in front of them with the hairbrush in their right hands. Equipped thus, it was easier to brush the hair from left to right, leaving the parting on the left. Have you got that?

Simple, eh?

  1. I bet there's lots of scientists tearing their (left-side-parted) hair out in envy and wishing they'd thought of that. Definitely worthy of the Nobel Prize for ...well, something, I'm sure.

    1. Nobel prize sounds good. Er.....how much is it?

  2. This is also why men's shirt buttons are on the opposite side. Men usually had someone to button their shirts for them, while women did it themselves. That is what I have read anyway. (Men had to have a hand free for a weapon!)

    1. Though I suppose bringing up three sons cost a bit. But their hair is parted on the left, of course.

  4. And scientists had to study in order to come to the same conclusion? You should definitely rent yourself out to Science (capital S) for those times when the scientists are stymied by domesticity.

    1. I don't think real scientists have got round to this, Kay. It's all my own!

  6. As a person who is directionally dyslexic I had problems with this but now that I have experimented exhaustively I would say that if you are right-handed then it's easier to brush the hair of someone in front of you from your left to your right. In that case the parting of the person in front of you would be on their right. I knew you'd be disappointed if I actually agreed with you so I did my best but I'm afraid that I just can't.
