    Is that a subtle hint in the text?

    Are they all left handed, by any chance?

    nope, nothing subtle about the left-handed clue



    they are all pictured playing in a right-handed styley - a throwback to the age when left-handedness was discouraged by making kids use their right hand

    next time someone asks you to name the left-handed beatle, you now have a choice ......



    i could have included paul simon or mark knopfler in the list, although they're both so indoctrinated that they also write with their right hands

    seeing as we're all going to be stuck inside for months and months and months, try this one on for size .....

    1*2 = A
    2*3 = B
    3*4 = C
    4*5 = ?

    the answer is not D (there's no trick there - that just means the answer is not D )

    How about these.
    All you have to do is replace the Captial letters with the correct word (for example 6 S on a D = 6 Sides on a Dice)

    1 12 M in a Y
    2 22 P on the P (or F) in a G of F (or S)
    3 12 I in a F
    4 40 D and N of the G F
    5 57 H V
    6 13 S on the F of A
    7 8 or 9 (if you include P) P in the S S
    8 54 C in a D of C including J
    9 7 W of the A W
    10 12 L of H
    11 4 Q in a G
    12 64 S on a C B
    13 5 R on the O F
    14 50 W to L Y L
    15 1 E on a C
    16 1440 M in a D
    17 6 P for a T in A F
    18 16 O in a P
    19 9 R including R pull S S
    20 1001 A N
