    the label "sinister" even codified into Medieval heraldry.
    Which means left. From Sinistra which means left in Latin, as opposed to Dexter which means right. You sir, fail at Ginger Rage.

    Looks like someone missed the joke there. Which is ironic, since you have to be aware of the heraldic usage of dexter/sinister in order to get the joke.

    I've got strands of red hair hidden and mixed in with all the black. They are hard to see, especially since they mostly went grey in my late 30's.

    One time I was lifting with 400+ pounds on my back and my spotter said 'You have red hair!' and then yanked out the one he found. I bounced that weight off the squat rack in my haste to get a hold of him. And got laghed and laughed at. I must have looked rediculous.

    I must have missed the joke, but I'm unaware of any heraldric connection beyond the Latin roots and the old urban legend about the Devil and lefties.

    You're implying that manual orientation is a choice of lifestyle.
    Manual Orientation is not a choice, however usage is. Lefties are free to write with the correct hand just as much as righties are.

    Sinister Dexter certianly gets it. Even if he has a broken spirometer.

    That's what she [Michelle Bachmann] said. I think it rates right up there with "Let them eat cake" in terms of social sensitivity.

    Sinister Dexter certainly gets it. Even if he has a broken spirometer.
    My turn not to get the gag, I think. If Dexter works with dead people, why would he even need a spirometer?

    You could always google it. Unless that's too obscure for ya.

    I'd guessed you might be referring to the Showtime series, Dexter. He is after all a sinister character.

    Googled references also include this t-shirt design, this comic book, and this band.

    Your mid-60's subversive side is failing you.

    But I'm barely into my early 50's!

    (Meaning in the mid-60's I was in kindergarten or first grade, and not especially subversive.)

    Only relevant if you caught the broken spirometer reference. Did you?
