Re: Origins of the Gay Bearded Left-Handed Lithuanian Conlanger

The original lefthanded Lithuanian was Steg Belsky's twin
brother, also a conlanger but not a list member. I guess you
could contact Steg to get the details about that. He had "-
Stephen (Steg), brother of the Left-Handed Lithuanian" in
his sig for a long time as a search for "Steg Lithuanian"
will reveal.

IIRC there was at some point a discussion of prevalence
of lefthandedness in gay men and of gay men among
creative people.


Mostly lefthanded ambidextrous, straight, bearded
Ukrainian (Yeah, I have Lithuania kind of surrounded! And
wear glasses... 8^)>
